Many a branded Facebook game fall into this trap, resting on the laurels of a high-profile brand to turn out as nothing more than a series of arbitrary tasks to click digital objects. The Walking Dead Social Game, developed by Atlanta, Ga.-based Eyes Wide Games and published by RockYou, will not be that type of branded social game. Rather, the publisher sees this as a golden opportunity to do something new.

The Walking Dead Social Game

For instance, players will get to recruit their friends and other non-player characters to either protect their camps while they're away on missions or come along for the ride. Regardless, those players can and will die, but it won't be the end for them. This is a zombie apocalypse, after all.

The Walking Dead Social Game

Of course, The Walking Dead Social Game will also take advantage of the proven appointment-based mechanics of games on Facebook. While appointment-based likely won't blow players away, what would is player versus player content. (For any fan of the series or comic book, they'll know that other survivors are often just as dangerous as the zombies.) Unfortunately, that won't be a part of The Walking Dead Social Game at launch, but it's something both are interested in implementing later.

Note: The game will shambles onto Facebook this April.
