AMC's "The Walking Dead" is going into the second half of its television season tonight. To help celebrate, Telltale Games promised a sneak peek at The Walking Dead: Michonne prior to the TV show's spring premiere. And indeed, the first five minutes of Michonne's standalone tale have been released for all to see.

'In Too Deep' is the first episode, which sees Michonne and her crew searching for survivors and supplies along the coast, where they find the scene of a massacre. As they search the colony of Monroe for survivors, they may soon find themselves running into the living person behind all that carnage. The story promises to answer some pivotal questions for followers of the comic book series, mainly what prompted Michonne to leave Rick's group and what led to her return.

The Walking Dead: Michonne is set to begin its story on February 23, where it will relese on PC, Mac, Xbox One, PlayStation, 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, iOS, and Android. The three-episode series will run for $14.99. Check out the first five minutes of the game below.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
