Season 2 of Telltale's 'Walking Dead' won't be kind to Clementine

If we were to use one word to describe Telltale Games' adaptation of The Walking Dead, it would be brutal. The franchise is known throughout its various mediums (whether it be the original graphic novels or hit TV series), for not pulling any punches when it comes to grizzly character deaths and explosive drama. The second season of Telltale's award-winning series will feature young Clementine as the main protagonist, making many fans wonder whether the game will be toned down, as to avoid any controversy. IGN addressed this concern during yesterday's interview with Telltale Games, where the developer was very straight-forward regarding their vision.

You play as this little girl, but the world doesn't care. At this stage in The Walking Dead universe, the fact that you're without Lee and that you're not a very physical, super-powered person doesn't mean that the world is going to be any nicer or kinder. The other survivors and zombies in general do not care that you're a little makes you have to consider things from a different perspective.

We were recently treated to a new gameplay trailer, though that didn't offer many details as to how playing as Clementine will differ from playing as Lee. Telltale elaborated by stating that she is physically weaker and her opinions are more apt to be ignored by other survivors. Given her established personality, it's no surprise that Clementine will also interact with others in a much different way than an adult would.

The Walking Dead: Season 2 is expected to launch sometime before the end of the year.
