The Walking Dead video game?

It looks like the TV series The Walking Dead may have a video game created after it.

According to an invitation we received Wednesday, Sam & Max and Back to the Future episodic game developer Telltale will be announcing five new multi-platform projects during a formal event in San Francisco on Thursday, February 17. Among them, says the invitation, is "one based on a just-launched property from the TV and comic book world whose popularity is changing life as some know it."

The Walking Dead television show, based on the Image Comics series, launched on AMC last October, fitting the vague description admirably. Admittedly we have no actual evidence to support this theory, though the series -- which often focuses on human interactions over zombie killing -- fits Telltale's style of games rather well.

It would be really interesting if there was a game based on the TV series as it would probably focus more on the human interaction than the zombie killing as most zombie survival games are about.

If you're looking to buy The Walking Dead season 1, has it, check it out.
