How Telltale Games created Clementine, the secret weapon of 'The Walking Dead'

The Walking Dead Clementine screencap

There's quite a lot to like about Telltale Games' The Walking Dead, but perhaps the most compelling aspect is how emotionally involved you can get while playing the game. To a large part that's thanks to Clementine, the 8-year-old girl that joins the story's protagonist in the first episode. Game Informer takes an in-depth look at the creation of Clementine, from the choices made when designing her wardrobe, to the nuances behind the writing of her dialogue. If you're a fan of The Walking Dead — or storytelling in general — it's well worth the read.
