Skybound Games has offered a first look at the new instalment of defunct studio Telltale Games’ recently resuscitated The Walking Dead: The Final Season, and it seems like Clementine is in a reflective mood.
Episode Three is, of course, the first instalment of the series to emerge following Telltale Games’ closure last year. When the studio initially announced it had laid off the majority of its staff, including the entire Walking Dead development team, only one episode had so far been released. Episode Two, which arrived last September, was the final episode to be completed by Telltale and it was feared that the remaining planned instalments, and a conclusion to the series which began all the way in 2012, would never see the light of day.
That changed, however, when Skybound Games – owned by the Walking Dead comic creator Robert Kirkman – announced that it had gathered together members of the original The Walking Dead development team and would be working to complete the two remaining episodes of the series. Episode Three, titled Broken Toys, is the first of those post-Telltale endeavours.
