Based on Robert Kirkman’s award-winning comic book, The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series allows players to experience the full story of young survivor Clementine as she grows from scared little girl to capable survivor in a videogame series that set the benchmark for storytelling in games.

 

A light of hope in a dark world, Clementine goes through many protectors and weathers many threats, learning to fight back in an apocalypse where the weak are crushed and the cruel get results. Always at a disadvantage, Clementine must outsmart and out-will foes stronger than her, and become one of the toughest people still alive, despite her small stature. It's up to the player how much Clementine trusts, who she loves, who she hurts, and what she chooses to protect when she cannot save everyone.

 

To date, TELLTALE’S THE WALKING DEAD has sold millions of episodes worldwide, earning more than 100 Game of the Year awards and has also received two BAFTA Video Game Awards for Best Story.
