The Walking Dead: Destinies gaming experience from AMC and GameMill released the digital format for the game on November 17. Social media is ripe with opinions about the good, the bad, and the ugly concerning the game. While TWD fans bash the look of the characters, some gamers have enjoyed the actual gameplay.

The game’s premise is to create a “What if…?” situation within the TWDU. The game concentrates on the first four seasons, where players can opt to change the course of history by altering who lives and who dies. Who wouldn’t want to see what happens if Shane survived instead of Rick?

Players can travel to many familiar locations, such as Woodbury, Atlanta, the prison, and Hershel’s farm, while selecting a favorite character from the series: Rick, Lori or Carl Grimes, Shane, Merle or Daryl Dixon, T-Dog, Glenn, Michonne, or the Governor. The weapons choices range from Rick’s revolver, Daryl’s crossbow, Carol’s knife, and Shane’s shotgun.

Gamers begin as Rick Grimes when he awakens from his coma to a world overrun by the undead. From there, the narrative can be changed, creating a brand new story. The concept is outstanding, but some say the execution didn’t live up to what was expected.

As a non-gamer, I don’t have an opinion on the gameplay, but the screenshots released have been entertaining.
