The Walking Dead Videogame is about physical and societal survival

The Walking Dead Video Game is about the tension between enduring societal values and doing whatever it takes to survive.

The Walking Dead Video Game is about the tension between enduring societal values and doing whatever it takes to survive, according to Angel Gonzalez, creative lead at developer Terminal Reality.

"What we love about the show is how people must learn to survive in this new world while still trying to keep a sense of normalcy," Gonzalez wrote on the official PlayStation blog. "Some people are prepared to keep holding onto the values that society has taught them while others are prepared to do whatever it takes to survive. There are even characters that are changing for what is perceived to be the better and we are excited to try and bring that into our game and let players experience it firsthand."

Players assume the role of the Daryl Dixon and will have to make "the right decisions to help guarantee he and his brother survive." Unlike the AMC television show, which begins a few weeks into the zombiepocalypse, The Walking Dead Video Game takes place during the early weeks of the outbreak, when even the bullheaded Dixon brothers will struggle to to adapt to the new world.
