• Skybound cut ties with Starbreeze and the Overkill game can't be continued. Skybound know how bad it is and seen as it will never be continued, is it still canon? What do you all think?

    • was it ever canon to the comics ? I kinda assumed it was it's own little thing.

    • I don't think it was ever canon, just that the comic events were canon in the game.

    • I don't think it's canon. Starbreeze messed up and Skybound cut the game entirely.

    • Considering the game didn't have much of a story to begin with, I don't think it would make a difference if it was canon or not.

    • i wouldnt count it as canon

    • Yeah I don't think it would matter anyway as from what I saw there basically was no story in the game and it was for the most part 99% gameplay (gameplay that wasn't fun to play).

      It could have virtually been a game set in anyone of the other hundreds of zombie universes that there are in video games/tv shows/movies/books.

    • Not in my eyes. I don't want to even think about considering that mess to be canon.

      Would it be safe to say that most of the effort spent on this game was in developing those trailers?

      Definitely. They thought people would buy it because it looked so good from the trailers.

    • Such a shame to hear this game failed miserable. Why can’t there be a dev out there to make a decent TWD survival/FPS game? Le sigh.

      I’ll probably buy this once the price tag dramatically drops.

    • Skybound should sign a contract with NaughtyDog.

      Not gonna lie when i seen the trailers i thought it looked great and i fell for the intial hype. Once i seen gameplay though i was severly dissapointed and opted out of buying the game... oh well still waiting for a good Walking dead game.

      Yeah. Telltale's was decent though, but I'd like to see an open world game. It'd be so fun to explore in an open world while being alert for walkers. But there are apocalyptic out there that seem decent enough. TWD needs one though.

    • Overkills was like March to War game. Some hype leading up to it but quickly got ignored and cancelled fast.

    • Should we count is as a 'this happened, but not exactly as we see it in the game' sort of thing? So all the characters exist out there in the comic somewhere but the gameplay isn't canon. Or is this a 'road to survival type of thing, which uses the comics as a base but is in it's own universe? (Not a main universe like the Comics or Show but a mobile game sort of universe thats made just for its own thing).

    • It's its own thing, as far as I'm concerned.

    • I only watched the first few missions on the playthrough I watched and then turned it off because the game story simply wasn't interesting. So out of curiosity is there really anything during the rest of the game that ties it to the comic universe other than the regular use of the word 'walker'?

      I know the 'Family' looks to be intended to be an early version of the Saviors but we know from the Negan comic (that Kirkman wrote) that they didn't form nearly as quickly as this game is implying and that they would have still been a pretty small group of people during the time this game is supposed to take place.

    • There are only some easter eggs, writing on the wall during one level tells someone to meet them at 'Alexandria'. Theres other small stuff like that too. The Family weren't intended to be the Saviors as far as I know but they are a little too similar to them based on their intentions, and because they're all in the same area theres no need tbh, they could have just gotten the real saviors.
