The Walking Dead Episode 1 sells over a million episodes

Leading digital publisher Telltale Games and Robert Kirkman, the Eisner Award-winning creator and writer of The Walking Dead for Skybound Entertainment and Image Comics, announced today that their internally developed The Walking Dead video game has sold over one million episodes across PC, Mac, PlayStation®Network for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, and Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. The Walking Dead is Telltale's fastest-selling game series to date, with the first episode of five, titled 'A New Day' topping the sales charts as the #1 best-selling title on Xbox LIVE Arcade for two weeks straight, also securing a spot at the top of the sales charts in its launch week on the Steam digital distribution service as well as on PlayStation®Network. These sales milestones do not yet include figures for the iOS version of The Walking Dead, which Telltale is planning to launch later this summer. The upcoming second episode of the season, 'Starved for Help', is expected to launch across PC, Mac, and consoles this June. "Premiering The Walking Dead game series to record numbers across so many diverse platforms is a tremendous achievement that shows the value of bringing strong storytelling and game play together," said Dan Connors, CEO of Telltale Games, Inc. "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. The most exciting aspect of getting off to such a great start is that this is just the beginning of the five episode series. The Walking Dead fans are going to experience some really great moments in the months ahead that are uniquely influenced by the choices they make throughout the season."
