AMC's hit TV series The Walking Dead has finished its season, and now zombie fans have the long wait for season three. If you want to fill the undead-shaped hole in your heart with video games, however, you don't have to wait much longer. The first episode of The Walking Dead game from Telltale is coming to PC, Mac, and PlayStation Network tomorrow.

An announcement on the game's official site, and then echoed on the PlayStation Blog gives the details. The first episode, "A New Day," will come tomorrow for $4.99. You can also pre-purchase all five episodes for $19.99, netting you a savings of five bucks and (with the PSN version) a PS3 premium theme.

The series tells the story of a new character in the world of the comics, which the TV show has deviated from in some ways. You won't be spending all your time with Rick and his crew, but you're in roughly the same geographical area, so you might see familiar locales or characters pop up from time to time.

An Xbox 360 and iOS version is also due in the future.

      i wonder how much jurassic park hurt them as a company. That seemed to be an awfully expensive licsence and a huge failure for them not to take a pretty painful hit.

        Actually, Telltale told me that it was their "most successful game ever." But, without numbers to back it up, hard to know exactly what they mean by that.

          Well, if anything it put them on the map for acquiring a big movie license.

          I think the Bombcast guys were talking about asking Telltale how The Walking Dead compared to Jurassic Park, and the immediate answer they got back was "THIS IS NOT JURASSIC PARK!!" Regardless of sales, Jurassic Park got panned pretty badly as an awkward take on the Heavy Rain gameplay mechanic.

      I'll wait for an iOS version. Whatever happened to that Black Guy, and his son on the first Episode?

        Don't think it was answered in the show, Rick went back to the highway a few times to try and get him on the radio and warn him the cities were full of walkers before the battery ran out but was unsuccessful, guess you're simply left to wonder whether he's died or not.. might show up in S3, ya never know
