Watched it last night, really good. I was watching it thinking, i wonder if this is part of the game, is this the opening, i bet this is like a video cut scene etc. The mrs enjoyed it too and she isnt one for stuff like this. She was googling it all the way through, how much $ each episode cost and stuff saying its going to be huge this show.
The first episode was fairly faithful to the show, I'd expect there to be differences as we go on, for example in the game air-born spores form part of the gameplay but that wouldn't be realistic for tv - even in the game im like why don't all the spores land on their masks and infect them when they take them of etc

The core plot will remain and I bet they ram it full of Easter eggs for players of the games

Watched the first episode today. Haven't played the game, never even heard of it before reading this thread.

How is it true to the game? As a player do you have to look for the battery? Crack the radio code? Rescue the girl? Is it that type of game?

You have to follow the story which I won't spoil but involves the girl quite heavily, the first episode is fairly true to the game down to even some really minor details like the road signs being the same.

If you're interested in the car battery...


The major change was the talk show at the start.

The game doesn't give you a rifle until much later and it's about resource management. Any time you get a gun you usually have sod all bullets and stealth is usually more valuable. Your flashlight regularly stops working. It's a survival horror game where actual combat is often deadly and although you can at times play it gung ho, it will often get you killed and it's easier to distract enemies and go round them as when they hear you they all come running.

After the intro. the first episode is very similar to the game - both the game play scenes and cinematic ones. I thought it also captured the bleakness / darkness of the game very well too - and the second game only got bleaker and darker!

The story writing in the game was fantastic, I wouldn’t want to really go into too much detail for those that haven’t played the game as it would give too many spoilers!

Can’t wait for the next episode though!

I'd also say to consider the the gameplay above was a 2013 game - for its time the graphics were unreal. It's since been remastered for ps4 and ps5 and had a sequel

Im assuming the last two minutes of the first episode, when the guard scans them, gives a major clue to her importance.

That clip of the car battery gives a good insight into the game play.

Watched the 1st episode just now, certainly a very good start, I'm relieved more than anything. There's only really Sonic and Detective Pikachu that had good adaptations based on video games.
There is a Fallout TV series on development for Amazon which from early rumors and such is heading for great things.

Just read that, and its blown my mind a bit like woahhh very cool bit that i didnt even notice, but ill be looking for that now.

I watched a youtube video of someone playing the game for the first like 10-15mins and couldnt believe how similar it was down to the neighbours house on fire... Really impressed with it and i cant wait for the next one now.
