Telltale Games, the developer behind popular adventure games, including The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones, will be serving as a publisher to a new zombie game titled 7 Days to Die. Unlike other games from Telltale, this game is being developed by an external developer and isn’t the choice-driven adventure games the company has become famous for.
7 Days to Die is already extremely popular on Steam. The partnership with Telltale will allow the game to be released on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game is developed by The Fun Pimps and his a “survival horde crafting” game.
“7 Days to Die is a labor of love for our small group of games industry veterans. After a highly successful Kickstarter campaign, we’re grateful to have had a wonderful response from our active community of Steam Early Access users; now, our partners at Telltale Publishing are enabling us to get the game in front of new survivors across the globe” said Richard Huenink, Co-Founder of The Fun Pimps in an official release. “We’re very excited that Telltale brought us together with the folks at Iron Galaxy, to build the game collaboratively and specifically for consoles. They have a stellar track record, and have been incredible partners in ensuring a perfect translation that includes new features and content not seen in the PC version.”
The game is set in a post-apocalyptic world and combines the gameplay of multiple genres including RPGs, Tower Defense, and survival horror.
“Telltale Publishing seeks to bring the best and most innovative games in their genres to new audiences. 7 Days to Die has already thrilled over 1.5 million PC users worldwide, and we’re delighted to bring this game from the PC to consoles everywhere,” said Steve Allison, SVP Publishing at Telltale, Inc. in an official release “The Fun Pimps have redefined what the survival genre can be with unrivalled world-building, crafting, and character growth. With overwhelmingly positive user feedback for the PC version, we can’t wait to expose a brand new audience to this exceptional and terrifying sandbox experience.”
7 Days to Die will be released this summer.
