    There's a leaked gameplay trailer over rockpapershotgun.com. Looks pretty good!


    that link is dead, but people are posting copies at youtube, e.g.:
    13 minutes of gameplay.
    Not sure how long this one will survive :)

    That lady totally shot herself in the head. This is going to be a very weird game for Telltale. I can't wait!

    The soundtrack for the game is all original music by Jared, and is tonally different (or at least more varied) than what you hear in the trailer... the game has its own feeling based on his (and our) interpretation of what the world of the Walking Dead might sound like. (I don't think Jared's even listened to the TV show score, or hadn't when he was concepting out the music for the series.)


    If you listen to the tv show: youtube opening theme walking dead, you have to admit it's very similar.
    But i like Jared's scores of TTG, i even own some (Sam and Max), so it will be good!

    Well, whatever it is like, I'm glad that TTG really seem to be stepping up the production values for this one. Because I think it really matters with the sorts of games they make that they look their best. I mean, it always mattered to me that LucasArts adventures looked amazing.

    Anyway, this is the first time since Strong Bad that I've looked at some TTG graphics and thought 'wow, that looks great' and not have to add a caveat like 'but the animation's all weird, and the polygon count is noticeably low and it has a sort of low-budget sheen to it.' I hope this is indicative of the sort of visual fidelity (and distinctiveness!) we can expect from TTG from now on, because that'll help to fix at least one of the gripes I've had with 'em.

    Are we ever going to see any gameplay on this thing? Or are we just to assume it's just another non game like how Jurassic Park turned out?

    Ah, damnit, no edits possible. Anyway, I think Jake told me that the trailer uses the TV show's soundtrack, because Jared's music isn't done yet.


    Incorrect. That was just in the rough cut you saw when you were in the office. Abuse of insider information!

    That cue in the trailer is by Jared, and was written in close collaboration with our marketing guys just for this video.

    I like that guy that gets pulled through the window. He seems like the coolest.

    Who is that guy I wonder?

    also, it's not based on the tv series, so they can't use that soundtrack, but why do they try to emulate it?
