Hector: Badge of Carnage

The Walking Dead and other Telltale adventures fall victim to the Humble Weekly Sale

Phil Savage at

The shambling Humble menace has claimed fresh victims. Not content with sucking the price out of assorted indie games for the excellently varied Humble Indie Bundle 8, they've also ambushed Telltale - creators of the brilliant The Walking Dead adaptation - in order to feed their Weekly Sale. Can they ever be stopped? Remember to aim for the wallet.

Hector has a puzzle where you have to pass a comatose heroin addict off as a defective sex doll as part of a plot to blow up a porn store.

Extra Telltale announcements

Surprise! (Or not.) Telltale confirmed that it's working on a Walking Dead episodic adventure game based on the comic (which is also the basis for the hit AMC TV show). Telltale says it won't be an action game about shooting zombies - like the source material, it'll be more of a human drama about survival.

Here's one that was kept under wraps a little better: Telltale's making a game based on Fables, the DC comic that retells classic fairy tales in dark, contemporary settings.

One more: Hector: Badge of Carnage is coming to PC. It's a port of an existing iPhone game about a crude Irish detective. Telltale, a big believer in putting games on every platform under the sun, has partnered with the developer to bring the first episode and future games to the PC (Telltale now owns the character).
