The Walking Dead: Season 1 is an adventure game by Telltale that is currently available for free at the Humble Bundle Store. The game's regular price is $22.99 but you can get it for free until Saturday.
The Walking Dead: Season 1 is a typical Telltale adventure game that follows the same flow as the company's other smash hit adventure games such as Game of Thrones, Batman: The Telltale Series, or The Wolf Among Us.
The game is divided into episodes that you play one after the other. One key feature of Telltale adventure games is that decisions that you make during the game may impact future events in it. The game feature light riddle solving and some action sequences, and is more of an interactive story than a traditional adventure game.
Fun fact: Telltale Games was founded by a group of former LucasArts employees. LucasArts revolutionized the adventure game genre with all-time classics such as Maniac Mansion, Monkey Island, and the Indiana Jones series.
