Telltale’s Walking Dead: The Game Season 1 has finally come to Android.
The winner of Apple’s 2012 Game of the Year has been ported to Android phones and tablets, though the system requirements are fairly steep. The episodic adventure game received critical acclaim for its graphics, storytelling, gameplay and voice acting, and immerses players in Robert Kirkman’s seemingly never-ending Walking Dead universe.
The zombie apocalypse is the backdrop for the story, but it’s the characters that make the game so interesting. Sold as a freemium title, the first episode is offered as a taste, with episode 2-5 and bonus title 400 Days available for $14.99 as an in-app purchase.
Telltale doesn’t mince words when it comes to hardware requirements. The team collaborated with Nvidia to bring Shield controller compatibility to the game, and the title is optimized for Tegra 4 hardware. Still, it works great on Adreno 300-series GPUs, so most flagships sold in the last year should be fine. (more…)
