The Walking Dead by Telltale games has hit the Google Play store, offering dramatic, action-packed gameplay. All five episodes plus the extra 400 Days DLC are available through a single in-app purchase, and you can enjoy the first episode for free.

For those unfamiliar, The Walking Dead is an outstanding comic and television series about a group of survivors in a zombie apocalypse. Though the game here has little to do with those series, you’ll find just as much cinematic excellence. Players have to make snap life-or-death decisions, complete rigorous gauntlets of reflex gameplay when fighting off the undead, and, worst of all, live with the decisions you’ve made from one episode to the next.

Telltale is working on a lot of other games along this vein. They just launched season three of their original series The Wolf Among Us on PC and consoles, and they’ve got licensed series for Borderlands and Game of Thrones in the works. With any luck, we’ll see these games come to Android sooner than later. The art style, though cartoony, is hugely expressive and the stories aren’t lacking for maturity.

The Walking Dead is an emotional game, and probably one of the best you’ll play on your Android device. Go get it. Trust me.

Awesome. I played the first season and 2 episodes of the second season on my Xbox. Its a very fun game with incredible storyline and character development.

Anyone want to tell me how much it is for everything total? Price wise I mean. I figure I'll snap it up shortly, but no harm in someone giving me the heads up so I can know before I head home for the day.

I guess I'll have to find out when I leave the office. WiFi is completely down thanks to the router giving out and I work in what was formerly a government building. Translation: The fact that I get any cell signal at all is a freaking miracle, but good luck trying to do anything besides make a call or send/receive a text message.

Yeah, agreed. Too rich for my blood. [folds hand] I spend a ton on stuff in the Play Store as it is, but that's too much all at one go. I'd rather pay for Soul Calibur if that's the case. $13.99 and I know I like the game.

One of the best adventure games of all time. Definitely worth your time.

1.14gb for this one game... Enough reason for phone developers to put more space on phones? Probably not... Excuse me while I see what I'm able to delete in order to download this game.

Cool game. Played season 1 plus 400 days on handheld so im really looking forward to season 2 dlc pack. To bad I won't be able to download it until it goes on sale. Yep, $4.99 per episode is a little to far outta my price range.

Unfortunately does not support Art runtime on my Nexus 5. I guess I'll be waiting a while to play this. Hopefully they get an update out quick, only took QuizUp a few days.

You guys at Android Central were discussing about in app purchases this past week. I guess that could be a bit cheaper ($14??), but that game is IAP done right. Quality solid game, 1 episode for free, the rest OF THE WHOLE GAME unlockable with IAP. Show the player real value that they'll buy happily.

I'll gladly wait for this to hit steam on black friday deals or for it to be in a Humble Bundle or something. $5 is the most I'd pay for the entire season.

It will probably be awhile before you see it on Humble Bundle, considering it was just released on the Play store.

It's great it's finally here, but it's like a year too late >_>
I would reccomend the game though. I have it on the PC and if you're a fan it's awesome.

.... way too late!!! I would've loved this a long time ago but now I already watched pewdiepie play it so no thank you maybe in a few years when I don't remember what happened...
