The indie game The Escapists which focuses on a convict attempting to escape prison, has merged with the comic book series The Walking Dead to make a new level for the game.

You will be playing as Rick, from the comics, in charge of a band of survivors. This band includes some characters from the comics- I caught a glimpse on Michonne in the announcement trailer.

The aim of the game is to keep your team alive and escape from each area to the next. Scavenging is still of utmost important, but instead of sneaking past prison guards you may well have to fend off zombies.
