With Season 4 of the TV show now officially under way on FOX it was only a matter of days before we heard an announcement around Season 2 of Telltale’s BAFTA Award winning series based on the same comics from Robert Kirkman, the Eisner Award-winning creator and writer of The Walking Dead.
The Walking Dead: Season Two – A Telltale Games Series will continue the story of Clementine, a young girl orphaned at the outset of the undead apocalypse, now left to her own devices to seek safety and survive in a world gone mad. Now assuming the role of an ordinary child, players will struggle to outwit both the dead and the living in situations that will test their morals and control the flow of the story through their decisions and actions.
The terrifying nature of Robert Kirkman’s world has allowed Telltale to push the boundaries of interactive drama in video games to a place that has had fans anxious to know what will happen next in this series. Today we can finally lift the veil, albeit only a little, on how this story will continue, and we’ll soon be putting players in the shoes of a lead role that will challenge their expectations of how to survive in a world where no one can be trusted.
said Dan Connors, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games.
Expected to premier later this year, The Walking Dead: Season Two – A Telltale Games Series will consist of five episodes that will be released over the course of the season and will conclude in 2014.
An official announcement trailer and additional screenshot are included below for you enjoyment.

Already fun in single-player, Final Exam takes on a whole new dimension in Co-op, as demonstrated by the new trailer that presents the gameplay features in 4-player mode: split your team up to achieve your objectives as quickly as possible, or stick together to increase your chances of survival against the waves of increasingly powerful and aggressive monsters.

The Bridge focuses on bringing players into a new gameplay experience, beyond what they may expect from the usual puzzle game. Following in the footsteps of non-traditional titles like Braid and Limbo, The Bridge offers a uniquely cerebral approach to gaming. With detail-oriented, hand-drawn environments that resemble architectural design, more than level design, players are asked to look beyond just the protagonist and into the environment to solve each puzzle. The ability to control the world around the protagonist offers a plethora of options for strategically positioning both the character and the world to achieve success. Critical thinking is a key to player progress and is not limited to just the environment; players will face off with “The Menace,” gravitational vortexes and parallel universes adding twists for additional layers of gameplay in this award-winning title.
At its heart, The Bridge is a 2D logic puzzle game that forces the player to re-evaluate their preconceptions of physics and perspective through 48 increasingly-difficult levels. Created to be both an intellectually stimulating experience and accessible game, The Bridge uses a minimalistic control scheme so both gamers and non-gamers can easily jump in and enjoy. To allow for experimental efforts, the “rewind” feature allows players to travel back in time to critical moments in the problem-solving process for a colloquial “re-do.” From the very start, The Bridge is designed to foster outside the box and critical thinking skills, leaving the player with a pronounced sense of intellectual accomplishment at the end of each level. Players willing to take on the game a second time will be treated to a secret ending reserved for the most dedicated of players.
The Bridge was developed by game designer and programmer Ty Taylor and artist Mario Castañeda; together they are known as the Quantum Astrophysicists Guild.
The Bridge is rated E for Everyone and will release on Xbox Live Games Store on November 13th.

What initially appears to be the chance of a lifetime quickly turns into a living nightmare where they must survive in a high-tech world that has spiraled out of control. This descent into hell is perfectly illustrated in this launch trailer.
Demonic Vacation At The Blood Sea is a single-player/co-op focused DLC which introduces new maps, a new boss fight and a much deeper storyline.

Painkiller continues with its sixth DLC, in which we look forward to bringing new levels, enemies and over the top arsenal to fans that will cause even more hellish destruction. Following on from the 5th DLC, Heaven’s Above, we switched back perspectives and we continue to provide thrilling old school first-person shooter action once again in this latest DLC.
