A social game based on AMC horror series The Walking Dead is coming in April, so watch your back and load your shotgun. AMC is partnering with social entertainment company RockYou to provide a social gaming experience to mid-to-hardcore gamers. The idea is to allow 'core gamers to battle zombies, with win or lose consequences, but on a more flexible social platform.
In The Walking Dead Social Game, the goal is to survive the apocalypse by fighting walkers (zombies) and keeping yourself and your fellow survivors alive, while scavenging resources and establishing camps based on settings from the show. The Walking Dead Social Game allows players to have their own, unique adventures, with opportunities to encounter show characters at key moments suggested by the show’s narrative.
“AMC's The Walking Dead Social Game is a next generation game for social networks.” said Stephen Griffin, CEO of Eyes Wide Games, which is the studio developing the game in conjunction with AMC and Rock You. “It's got deep playability. It's got drama, and it's still approachable for the casual audience. However, if you're a gamer and you've been looking for a deeper game to play and to experience on social networks then this is it.”
You can find the game on The Walking Dead's Facebook page
