Who doesn’t love a classic “zedd” movie or video game? Of course, in this case, we’re talking about the latter.
The Escapists: The Walking Dead is Team 17’s newly announced top-down game that was created in conjunction with Skybound Entertainment, The Escapists The Waking Dead takes the 8-bit pixel art style of The Escapists that we all know and love and combines it with the universe and characters of the original The Walking Dead comic books.
You control leading man Rick Grimes — no, not Frank Grimes — across a variety of perilous locations as he tries to secure the safety of a number of familiar characters by seeking out a safe escape route from each area, fending off the zombie hordes and keeping as many of them alive as possible as they escape.
IGN has posted a trailer that we’ve embedded above. What do you think of the new game? Are you going to be shuffling your way to the shop to pick it up, zombie style?
