TellTale Games is giving away the first episode of its survival horror adventure game to iPhone and iPad users in honour of winning the 'Game Of The Year' prize during the 2012 Spike TV Video Game Awards.
Episode 1: A New Day introduces main character Lee Everett, who encounters the zombie outbreak while on his way to prison on murder charges. Soon he finds himself protecting the 8-year-old girl Clementine, both from zombies and from other survivors.
Users can then purchase episodes 2 through 5 inside the app for $4.99 (£2.99) each, or as a bundle at $14.99 (£9.99) for the entire season.
The Walking Dead is in the running as part of Digital Spy's annual best games of 2012 poll, which users can still vote on before the results are revealed at the end of December.
TellTale is also dropping the price for all of its iOS games down to $0.99 (69p), including Jurassic Park: The Game, Back to the Future, Tales of Monkey Island, Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space, Puzzle Agent, Puzzle Agent 2, Law & Order: Legacies and Hector: Badge of Carnage.
