The Walking Dead is riding high after a couple of jaw-dropping episodes and what promises to be an exciting and pulse-pounding season finale. Seeking to capitalize on its popularity further, AMC has announced the creation of a Walking Dead-themed social game on Facebook. Grounded in the world of the show, the game leverages the best aspects of the social network to offer a truly immersive experience for fans. Hit the jump for more details.
RockYou and Eyes Wide Games developed The Walking Dead Social Game specifically for maximum “playability.” The result hopefully is that users will be presented with all the choices and decisions the show’s characters must make to survive, which will lead to significant implications for how the game will play out. You can read more details about the game and check out some screenshots below from the game’s Facebook page:
