The Walking Dead: Michonne puts you — for the first time — in control of an actual character from the comic book, in this new Telltale Games miniseries.
The game never explains when and where this fits into the Walking Dead timeline, but if you’re up to date on your comics, this is set between issues #126 and #139. For people not caught up on the comics or confused because they only watch the TV Show, this will not spoil anything about either of those things. Well, at least not in the first episode.
Episode 1 has a strong start and introduction to Michonne; setting up her mental struggles with PTSD; her tough girl attitude and attempts to try and use that to hide her emotions and, of course, her kick-ass ability to kill zombies. Assuming you’ve read the comics or watched the TV Series, you will know how much a bad-ass Michonne is, but you know she has had a tough time since the apocalypse. If you’ve only played the previous two seasons of Telltale’s The Walking Dead, well, you might struggle to get your head around Michonne as the game expects you to know her to some degree.
She meets Pete and joins him on his boat with two other guys. They, unfortunately, get stuck in the middle of the water when they hit a sunken ship and Pete and Michonne head to a wharf in the distance to look for a way to free their boat. Regular Telltale affair occur. You will look around the wharf and you will QTE your way through some zombies.
