for Episode 5 of the popular “The Walking Dead” video game by Telltale Games is currently available for online viewing. Episode 5, labeled “No Time Left,” concludes the first season of the video game that has five chapters. The first four chapters are “A New Day,” “Starved for Help,” “Long Road Ahead,” and “Around Every Corner.” No Time Left is available
on November 20 for those in North America that have a Playstation 3. They can purchase and download No Time Left through the Playstation Network (PSN). The game will be available for other consoles the next day on November 21.
After No Time Left is available, the first season of the game is wrapped up. A second season with five new chapters is confirmed to be released sometime in 2013.
The video game series by Telltale Games follows the storyline of the comic book. In the first chapter, Glenn, who is very important in the comic series makes a cameo role. Then, he leaves and ends up running into Rick Grimes who is the main character of the series. Keep in mind that the game is connected to the story and not the series on AMC.
In the game, you take on the role of Lee Everett, a former History professor who's supposed to be incarcerated for murdering a politician who has been fooling around with his wife. Then, the zombie apocalypse happens. Throughout the game, Lee helps a little girl named Clementine who's looking for her parents. The storyline is a side-story to the comic series; plus, it serves as somewhat of a prequel.
This is the time where Rick is still in a coma after getting shot on the job.
Unlike other zombie games, this game is more character and story driven. You do have puzzles to solve similar to the earlier “Resident Evil” games. But, this is a point and click adventure in which one false move and it's game over.
The game takes off where Episode 4, Around Every Corner, finishes. All the decisions the player made as Lee in the previous chapters will culminate to Episode 5.
According to Telltale games
, almost 1.7 million copies of the first episode were purchased. Also, the series itself has been nominated for several video game awards in 2012. For those interested in purchasing the game, you can buy all the games for one price. One example would be for PC and Mac users to buy the game via the Steam network
. You can get all five episodes for $24.99; but, there are system requirements that have to be met.
While it takes time for season 2 of the game to be made and released, those that haven't played the first season have more than enough time to play catchup.
