Telltale Games’ episodic adventure titles have always had a fan following but the developer appears to finally have a huge hit on its hands with The Walking Dead series. Episode 1 has already sold over a million copies, making it Telltale’s best selling game so far, while Episode 2 appears poised for success after raking in various nominations and awards at E3 2012.
Episode 2: Starved for Help is already out on Xbox 360 and will be released for PS3, PC and Mac later today. Here’s a launch trailer to celebrate its long-awaited arrival:
