Almir Listo guaranteed a Mature environment and launched a critique of the Battle Royale
Although zombie themed proposals may seem worn after countless movies, series and video games, the truth is that it is a genre that will always find a market niche to keep it alive. In the case of OVERKILL'S The Walking Dead, the development team has focused its efforts on creating a cooperative game that, although inspired by the comic, seeks to capture a new environment that reflects a zombie apocalypse that surprises the players.

Initially, Gascon assured that the idea that shapes OVERKILL'S The Walking Dead goes beyond the desperation of the survivors, because it is about entering fully and trying to dominate the most hostile environment that can be expected: "we are working with a well-known IP, so people have certain expectations, but we want you to know that this is about our vision of The Walking Dead, so you will not be a simple survivor, you will have to tame the apocalypse. "

In that sense, the director took the opportunity to launch a critique of the Battle Royale games: "We are treating tone and history with a seriousness that few games currently have.The industry's focus today is to make titles where 100 players are thrown on an island or whatever, with graphics that do not matter as long as they satisfy users of 12. We are creating a game for adults It is a mature experience based on a mature universe created by someone who has a lot of love for this type of creations Robert's comics [Kirkman] have different layers and touch different emotional situations that have not been addressed in the TV series,
