The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead is an episodic interactive drama graphic adventure video game developed and published by Telltale Games

The game takes place in the same fictional world as the comic, with events occurring shortly after the onset of the zombie apocalypse in Georgia. However, most of the characters are original to the game, which centers on university professor and convicted murderer Lee Everett, who helps to rescue and subsequently care for a young girl named Clementine. Kirkman provided oversight for the game's story to ensure it corresponded to the tone of the comic, but allowed Telltale to handle the bulk of the developmental work and story specifics. Some characters from the original comic book series also make in-game appearances.

Additional Comments

I needed to install the DirectX-9 DLLs via Winetricks. For most of the people here the copy protection is not a problem. It just works out of the box. However, with a slow connection (let's say 15k down, 10k up, but stable) the copy protection will prevent the first start. Once the game is activated it runs offline but you have to activate it first. Other than on plain Windows XP you won't be able to run this game with wine and a slow connection to the internet. Tried a lot of configuration now but it looks as it simply does not work.
