Most of us are familiar with popular social media games like Farmville & Cityville but now a new game based on AMC’s zombie-killing series, The Walking Dead is headed for Facebook.
The Walking Dead social game is currently being developed by AMC and Eye Wide Games and pretty soon it will let you, and your friends, protect what’s yours from the groups of flesh eating walkers.
“AMC’s The Walking Dead Social Game is a next generation game for social networks,” says Eye Wides Games CEO Stephen Griffin. “It’s got deep playability. It’s got drama, and it’s still approachable for the casual audience. However, if you’re a gamer and you’ve been looking for a deeper game to play and to experience on social networks then this is it.”
The Walking Dead Social Game can be found at Facebook.com/amcthewalkingdeadgame and will allow users to place guards, gather materials and fight zombies while avoiding detection and attack.
The player controls his own unique party of survivors, which can include friends but there are also opportunities for the player to interact with characters from the hit show.
