Trivia

Clementine's character was developed before Lee's because the designers wanted a "character that would act as a moral compass for the main character as he progressed through the game." 

Clementine's brother was one of the original ideas for the main character, but was eventually axed due to the pre-existing relationship between the two.

Oddly, all eight determinant characters (Chet, Danny St. John, Andrew St. John, Gary, Drew, Kenny Jr., the Stranger, and Lee), are all male, leaving no female's status available for the player to choose. (This is not counting Doug, Carley or Ben, as they all end up dead no matter what, whereas the eight above's status is completely up the player's actions.)

The Walking Dead has won over more than 80 Game of the Year Awards.

There was a pre-order contest for The Walking Dead Video Game in which four randomly selected players who pre-ordered the game were selected to be transformed into the game as zombies, while one player won the grand prize of being transformed into a character in the game, dying, and coming back as a zombie. The four zombies appear in Episode 5 as Lee makes his way to The Marsh House and the grand prize winner was Brie Rosenholm, who the character Brie was based on. Brie appears in Episode 4 and then again in Episode 5 as a zombie.

In a interview with Gavin Hammon, the voice of Kenny, it was revealed that a scene was planned in which Lilly would appear with the RV again after her original departure, but it was never made.
