The Walking Dead: Season One is Now On Android

The Telltale website hasn't been updated with the news, but The Walking Dead: Season One is now available on Android devices. After the game appeared on the Android based Kindle Fire platform late last year, it seemed like only a matter of time before it was extended to other Android devices.

It was previously assumed that the already announced Ouya release would happen first, but it is now available on the Google play store for Android devices in general. There is still no word on when the Ouya version will be released.

Dead Synchronicity Kickstarter Campaign

There is a new crowdfunding campaign up on Kickstarter for an adventure game titled Dead Synchronicity.  It is described as a 2D point and click adventure game featuring space-time distortions, a dystopian atmosphere and a dark, bloodstained plot.  If funded, it will be released for Windows, Mac, Linux, and iPad.

If you want to back it there are many tiers to choose from, such as a digital download of the game at $15, a digital download of the game and either a digital artbook or digital soundtrack at $25 (or all three plus alpha and beta access at $35), all previous rewards plus printed poster at $50 (or signed at $65), all previous rewards plus a boxed copy of the game at $90, up to a meeting in Madrid to meet the team (which is a paid trip with three nights in a luxury hotel and tickets to watch a soccer game) at $10,000.  So, if a dark point and click adventure with a unique art style sounds interesting to you, head to the Dead Synchronicity Kickstarter to pick a tier and back the project.
