The first pinball game to make you feel guilty

Telltale's The Walking Dead series is full of gritty drama and tough moral choices, and soon that experience will be translated into... a pinball table. The developer has announced a partnership with Zen Studios — creator of excellent video game pinball titles like Star Wars Pinball — to create a virtual table based on the game, which is slated to launch sometime this summer. But it won't just be a regular table with the style of The Walking Dead: somehow it will include all of the dark drama from the series as well.

According to the developer, the table will cover the story of The Walking Dead game's first season, and feature "choice-driven gameplay" that includes scenarios about "choosing who to save and who to leave behind in a walker attack, solving problems and keeping up morale within the group, searching for food and supplies, acquiring important tools, and navigating through the herd amidst an oncoming walker breach." It might just be the first pinball game that makes you feel guilty. You'll be able to check it out later this year, when the table launches as downloadable content in Zen Studios games on console, mobile, and PC.
