Congratz Telltale, well deserved. I absolutely loved TWD season 1 my GOTY for the sheer experience it delivered.

Can't wait to see what they cook up for season 2.

Very awesome sales for a great game I'd actually like to see this also brought to Vita and 3DS.

Same, I'm surprised they don't have them on dedicated handhelds already considering you can play it on an iPhone.

That's 8.5 million individual episodes.
If you consider episodes 1-5 as a single game, then it's not as great as they make it sound, because every single owner will have five episodes, which means 1.7 million individual owners.

I think they count it as 8.5 million because you pay for each individual episode. Evidently people liked it so much they bought each one and jacked up the numbers. That's an incredible set of numbers for an episodic Telltale game, regardless of which numbers you go by.

Not everybody who buys episode 1 will buy the others. I bought the season pass but I'm guessing a few people bought the first episode and didn't like it.

In Steam I don't think you can buy each episode separately.

Easily one of the GOTY

I don't care what anybody says. Gameplay too simplistic blah blah blah point+click.

The STORY and CHARACTERS and how YOU CONNECT with them.

AMAZING !
