The TV series "The Walking Dead", which tells how the world was struck by an unprecedented virus that turns people into zombies, swept the world with great success. It is one of the highest-grossing TV series to date and is considered by many to be one of the best in history. It tells about people who were able to survive and continue to fight for survival when the whole world plunged into darkness. However, it is worth noting that the series is gradually fading into the background, because the game based on it has come forward. It received the same name - The Walking Dead, or "The Walking Dead", but at the same time it has only superficial similarities directly with the cinematic version.
Of course, the action takes place in the same game universe, in the computer version there are even characters that everyone is already familiar with from the series, but this is where the similarities end. The series is in itself, and the computer game is separate "The Walking Dead". Passing it will take you not very much time, but it will bring just an incredible amount of pleasure, and largely thanks to the genre. The game canattributed to interactive cinema, that is, you do not have to act so much as to watch the events unfolding on the monitor, periodically influencing them, solving riddles and choosing dialogue lines. As a result, all your statements and decisions will have a direct impact on how the game will develop, that is, it is fully interactive, which has attracted a huge number of gamers.
Episode One: "A New Day"
So, it's time to start an exciting journey through a world inhabited by zombies, in which ordinary people have to survive in difficult conditions. Lee Everett is the protagonist of the first season of The Walking Dead game, the passage of which will make you experience a whole range of emotions, because you will definitely be saturated with sympathy for some characters, antipathy for others. Sometimes you have to make difficult decisions, sometimes you just can’t influence events, and all this is experienced much more strongly than in the series. After all, on TV you only watch other characters, and in the game you lead one of them, you associate yourself with him. Moreover, Lee's little companion named Clementine makes gamers even more pity and compassion, makes them try to protect her by all means.
But you will meet Clementine later, and the game itself begins with Lee being driven in a police car, handcuffed. He is convicted for the murder of his wife, but he is not destined to go to prison - a police car has an accident, knocking down a man. As it turned out in the end, thiswas not a man, but a zombie, but the main threat will not come from him at all. The fact is that the driver of the car died and turned into a zombie, and you have to shoot him with his own shotgun to escape. Naturally, the sounds of the shot attracted other walkers, so you with a wound in your leg need to escape behind the nearest fence. It is here that you will meet Clementine, with whom you will go further. The first survivors you meet will ask you to help clear the road so they can leave by car - for this they will take you with them. Of course, you should not refuse such an opportunity, so agree, and in the end you will find yourself on the Hershell farm, which is familiar from the series. There, after talking with various characters, you will have to make the first choice in the game - the zombies will attack the son of Hershell, as well as the boy Duck, the son of Ken. You need to choose who to save. As a result, Hershell's son will die anyway, but if you try to save him, Hershell will be more lenient towards you. On the other hand, Ken will not forgive you for this, and you will have to travel with him until the very end.
These are the choices you'll face in The Walking Dead. The passage, in fact, is linear, but at the same time, many details of the final picture depend on your choice. So, together with Ken and his family, you go on a journey until the car runs out of gas. To escape the zombies, you need to run into the store, where you will meet with the next group of survivors, who will welcome you more than Hershell's group.
Continuation of "Newof the day"
This is not the end of the first episode - you still have to get out of the store, and it's not as easy to do it as in other parts of the Walking Dead game. Passage in a sense requires you not only ingenuity, but also dexterity, speed, good reaction. You need to talk to all the new acquaintances, and after all, in the game, a limited amount of time is given for an answer, and if you do not fit in, then Lee is silent, which is unlikely to please the interlocutor. However, as well as unpleasant remarks. As a result, another survivor gets in touch and asks for help - this is Glenn from the series. Together with him, you have to look into the motel room, where an infected woman is hiding, who asks to give her a gun so that she can shoot herself. But when there is a zombie apocalypse in the yard, weapons are very important, so it's better to refuse - she will still go out and shoot herself, but you will keep the weapon. After that, you need to go back and get the key to the pharmacy in order to save one of the characters after a heart attack. Distract the crowd of zombies with TVs and take the key from the body of your dead brother. Then you have to survive the zombie assault, in which you will have to decide who will die: Duck or Carly. With a girl, Lee begins to develop a relationship, while Dak is also not a bad guy. The choice is yours.
This, in principle, ends the first episode of the game "The Walking Dead". Season 1, the passage of which is divided into five episodes, will still bring many surprises. But separatelyit is worth noting that Larry, whom you saved from an attack, will push you out of the saving door, but Kenny will help, since before that you will save Clementine. Gradually, he will forgive you for what happened on the farm, and you will become best friends.
Episode Two: "Wanting for Help"

Decide who you like best, but keep in mind that the hungry get even angrier. Unfortunately, the rescued teacher dies and then turns into a zombie and attacks the survivors. He manages to be neutralized, and Ben says that the bite is not needed at all to become a zombie - all people are already infected. After that, you will meet with two brothers from the farm, to which part of your group will go, although you are against it, because you feel an ambush. Many unusual things will happen on the farm, including Mark being wounded in the shoulder. The result of everything will be a festive dinner during the famine, but Lee will have to break the idyll.

But you don’t have to rejoice for long, because it turns out that supplies are disappearing from the warehouse. The investigation leads to not the most joyful end - it turns out that Ben gave some of the supplies to the bandits so that they would not touch the group. Just at this moment, those same robbers appear who demand their share. This time, no one will give them anything, but they will have to leave the shelter. In the process, Duck gets bitten by a walker, making the atmosphere even more oppressive. But the real turning point happens on the road, when a quarrel flares up over what happened in the camp. Lilly loses her mind almost literally, but the quarrel is stopped by a walker stuck in the wheels.
