Telltale’s The Walking Dead: The Game is fresh off a big Game of the Year win at the Spike 2012 Video Game Awards last Friday night. It was the perfect storm for the atmospheric game with series creator Robert Kirkman in attendance to witness the playable offspring from his world become the first digital download game to win the award.
The Walking Dead: The Game was already a hit prior to the VGAs with players, enough so that Telltale Games had already planned to release a packaged media version on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 today, almost as if they felt good about their chances of winning Game of the Year. The Walking Dead as a brand is huge so it should jump off store shelves to buyers who weren’t even aware the episodic downloadable version has been slowly released over the past few months.
Telltale has priced the complete first season of The Walking Dead: The Game for Xbox 360 and PS3 at $29.99.
