The Walking Dead Social Game is now available to play on Facebook. I have been trying it out briefly and so far I really like it. The game is currently in it’s Beta stage, so it will likely still have some issues and bugs, but for the most part it is playable.
This game is point and click based, but it has various elements thrown in to spice things up a bit. For example, there is an element of stealth used whereby you crouch behind various objects to stay hidden from the walkers. Of course you don’t necessarily have to do this, you can alternatively just go and attack, but chances are you won’t last too long.
You begin by customizing your character and going through a brief tutorial to help familiarize yourself with the gameplay mechanics. You are then introduced to your Atlanta survivors camp where you can interact with various other characters such as Shane, Lori and Carl as well as a few others who you don’t actually see in the TV Series. This acts as your base where you will accept missions and upgrade your character and stats.
Missions can be accepted from various people, and these will help build up your XP if completed successfully. When on missions be sure to be on the look out for supplies such as weapons, food and ammo for both yourself and your fellow survivors back at camp.
For those that are wondering – Yes, you are able to play this game with your Facebook friends.
I still have a lot to try out on this game, but I recommend you go ahead and check it out on Facebook now. If you are looking for friends to play this with, then make sure you leave a comment below saying so. We could build up a team of dedicated players and help each other complete missions throughout the game. If you think this sounds like a good then make sure you get commenting!
