Zen Studios is readying their next masterpiece, based this time on Telltale’s The Walking Dead adventure game. While it is true that the typical pinball format rarely lends itself well to complex story-lines, this release does a surprisingly good job at capturing key scenes from the first season of the franchise (including a healthy sprinkling of ambulatory corpses).
Adding to the authenticity, the original voice cast has recorded a few new original lines to be enjoyed during table play as you navigate through familiar locations while employing choice-driven gameplay: decide who to save and who to leave behind (while trying to raise morale, search for food, and acquire much-needed tools).
The Walking Dead Pinball game is expected to be launched for Android any minute now, but until then you can whet your appetite with the official launch trailer.
