A little while back a small indie game called “The Escapists” was released onto next-gen consoles and PC and was a pretty big success. The game was a “Shawshank Redemption”-esque game, where you played a character trying to escape from a prison. Well now the developers of the game Team 17 have now taken their gameplay and 8 bit pixel style graphics and mixed it with “The Walking Dead”.
The game places you in control of Rick Grimes and has you creating safe escape routes to help and secure survivors from large areas. You have to fend off zombies and rescue as many survivors as you can. The unique aspect of the game though is how it takes most of its source material not from the TV show but from the comics, so you’ll see some very similar locations as well as new places not yet seen in the show. “The Escapist: The Walking Dead” is avalible now on Xbox One and PC. Here’s a trailer.
