With the premiere of The Walking Dead’s second season, players quickly learned the unique challenges of surviving in the zombie apocalypse as our 11 year old heroine thrust back into Robert Kirkman’s relentlessly unforgiving world ravaged by the undead

As players experience the second episode they will learn that safety is temporary, and the bonds of trust may not always be as strong as they seem. This episode also introduces the first true villain for the series, the mysterious ‘Carver,’ who is bent on tracking down Clementine and her new group of survivors at all costs.
The premiere episode of Season Two, All That Remains received praise from various sources. The New York Times called it, “Excellent,” and Buzzfeed said, “It’s a masterstroke by Telltale,” adding, “This is the real deal; a game for adults, not gamers, a game to share, a game to evangelize about, a game to cherish.” GameTrailers.com awarded the premiere with an Editor’s Choice 9 out of 10 rating and said that the episode, “…doesn’t waste a single minute. Telltale will make you feel scared, hopeful, shocked, and repulsed, only to have the next several scenes do the exact same thing.” Nerdist.com said, “…it’s a home-run. Lighting, meet bottle – again.”
