The Walking Dead: Michonne, a very special three episode miniseries event
Where I come from, “miniseries” was basically a way of describing a too-long TV show based on a too-long book that only mothers read. It later would become one of those Stephen King shows where airports get eaten by giant Coco Puffs. Now, it just means another dip into the Walking Dead.
Telltale Games—the publisher that’s slowly becoming the Ryan Seacrest of the gaming world—has announced that The Walking Dead: Michonne – A Telltale Miniseries is now available for download as part of a three episode event.
The first episode, “In Too Deep,” is available today on pretty much every system that plays a game, including the Mac. iOS gamers, however, will have to wait until February 25th for the game to hit the iTunes App Store.. The second episode, “Give No Shelter,” will follow in the month of March, and the miniseries will conclude with “What We Deserve” in April.
In this premiere episode, ‘In Too Deep,’ Michonne joins Pete and his crew on the sailing ship The Companion as they cruise the coast for survivors and supplies. When a desperate signal for help draws them to a scene of horrific massacre, Michonne and the crew are lead further to the floating survivors’ colony of Monroe, which may just be harboring the person responsible for the carnage.
Haunted by her past and coping with unimaginable loss and regret, the story explores Michonne (portrayed in-game by award-winning actress Samira Wiley (Orange is the New Black)), allowing players to discover what took her away from Rick, Carl, and the rest of her trusted group…and what brought her back.
The Walking Dead—in case you’re an actual zombie who hasn’t heard of the series—is set in the world of Robert Kirkman’s award-winning comic book series. The Telltale games offer an emotionally-charged, tailored game experience where a player’s actions and choices affect how their story plays out across the entire series.
