Okay maybe not, but you get the point. While I may have exaggerated the lengths to which I would go to play 400 Days, I can't stress enough how excited I am for it. As someone who just finished the wonderful, yet heartbreaking (no spoilers here) final episode of Season 1, Telltale sure knows how to leave an impact, and I expect no less from the 5 new protagonists that star in 400 Days.

For those who don't know, 400 Days is a special DLC episode for Season 1 of The Walking Dead that tells a tale of 5 new survivors whose paths seem to cross at a truckstop in Georgia. You can play the stories of each survivor in any order, and that order will change certain events and things in other character's episodes. While it will not feature Lee or Clementine, it will recognize some of your choices from Season 1, and will also transfer some made in 400 Days to the eventual Season 2. I love the characters from the original season, and fully believe we will cross paths with them again in future seasons, but Telltale was able to not just develop characters but also wonderful fully realized world, and frankly any chance to play around in that world is one I will gladly take. Sure it was based on a great property, but as we've seen time and time again, that alone doesn't mean much.

400 Days is coming to PSN, XBLA, Vita, iOS, and Steam later this year.
