Two of the most respected curators of others intellectual property, Zen Studios and Telltale, have come together to bring Telltales’ Game of the Year winning The Walking Dead experience to pinball. Based around the events of Telltales’ Walking Dead Season One, players will have a chance to relive the story of Lee and Clementine in various settings, such as, Clementine’s tree house and the streets of Savannah. “Zen Studios is a huge admirer of Telltale Games, and we truly cherish the opportunity to work with such amazing visionaries,” said Mel Kirk, Vice President of Publishing at Zen Studios. “Working with Telltale’s The Walking Dead is a hallmark moment as we continue our quest to create the most memorable and authentic pinball experiences.”
The new table tries to incorporate choices in a similar way to The Walking Dead with the goal of making a memorable experience for players. “Zen knocked it out of the park with their interpretation Telltale’s first season of The Walking Dead as a pinball table,” said Steve Allison, SVP of Publishing at Telltale Games. “Players once again get to step into the shoes of Lee Everett and protect Clementine as all the major events of season one play a role in the first ever pinball game that features choice and consequence gameplay.”
The game will be playable at E3 and our own Kyle Aufderheide will be sure to give it a spin. The game should release later this summer. This will be the second major zombie franchise with which Zen has worked having previously released Plants vs Zombies Pinball.
