Two of the busiest and most acclaimed downloadable game developers in the business are joining forces on a very special collaborative project.

The pinball wizards at Zen Studios have teamed up with the masters of episodic adventures at Telltale Games to bring The Walking Dead Pinball into the world. The new table based on the first season of Telltale’s comic book inspired graphic adventure series is scheduled to release across the usual console, mobile and PC platforms this summer.

The Walking Dead Pinball will follow the storyline of Everett and Clementine’s perilous journey spanning all five episodes of Season One, complemented by all-new dialogue from the original cast. The Walking Dead‘s choice-driven gameplay will play out on the pinball table as players will decide who to rescue during a walker attack, search for food and tools, manage the morale of the group of survivors, and solve impossible life or death problems. The table will also depict familiar locations such as Clementine’s treehouse, the pharmacy in Macon, and the streets of Savannah.

The Walking Dead Pinball will be revealed in full next week at Telltale’s E3 2014 booth. Until then a brief teaser trailer will have to suffice.
