I don’t know if I should have gotten on the ball with this already, but I’d like to market a line of Walking Dead-themed bathroom products. Instead of shampoo and mouthwash, though, it’s just rotted human heads, and you’re actually just putting blood and viscera in your hair and mouth. It can’t miss! But people usually get into games more than they do washing up with filth, so let’s all celebrate the announcements for an upcoming mobile game based on the AMC series, and a Kickstarter campaign that aims to give the comic’s prison storyline the board game treatment. Soon, the only place you’ll be able to look without seeing TWD merchandising is your window…unless you have a walker treehouse or something.
First up is the sure thing. AMC and Next Games are teaming up for the series’ first mobile experience, and while it doesn’t have a name just yet, I’m guessing they’ll go with The Walking Dead: The Mobile Game. The game’s release will coincide with the start of the show’s fifth season, which will probably start in October. There are no hard and fast specifics about the game, though details will reportedly be released in the coming months. But Next Games CEO Teemu Huuhtanen at least gave the project a tone.
