The Walking Dead proves popular with gamers

Episodes of The Walking Dead are attracting lots of interest from gamers.

More than one million episodes of The Walking Dead have been sold to gamers so far, it has been confirmed.

The game series has been developed by Telltale Games and award winning writer Robert Kirkman. Episode one has attracted glowing reviews since its launch, with Official Xbox Magazine, PC Gamer and among the commentators rating it highly.

MTV News and The New York Times have also been impressed, while PlayStation: The Official Magazine recently handed The Walking Dead a Gold Award.

Consumers seemingly agree with the praise, as it has proved popular across a number of platforms, including the Mac, PC, Xbox and PlayStation.

Dan Connors, chief executive of Telltale Games, commented: "The tailored narrative design puts gamers in control of their own story within the universe of The Walking Dead in a way that appeals equally to hardcore gamers and to more casual gamers who are fans of the franchise."

He promised aficionados of the series that the next set of episodes will allow them to enjoy "some really great moments".

Mr Connors added that garnering a record audience across so many different platforms has been a "tremendous achievement". This, he said, demonstrates the benefits of combining strong gaming technology with good storytelling.

Episode one, which is named A New Day, will be followed by a second instalment next month – Starved for Help. This too will be available on different consoles, PCs and Macs.

The franchise depicts the exploits of Lee Everett, who is offered the opportunity to redeem himself after being found guilty of a crime of passion. Gamers can individually tailor each episode to their own preferences, which will in turn impact on how the story unfolds in the future. Indeed, Mr Connors said the outcome of people's gaming experiences will be "uniquely influenced" by the decisions they make during each episode.ADNFCR-1220-ID-801366748-ADNFCR
