The Walking Dead Universe RPG Launches Kickstarter Campaign for Early Access

Free League Publishing offers a new post-apocalyptic survival experience based on AMC’s hit franchise


AMC Networks and Free League Publishing have developed the Walking Dead Universe RPG tabletop game in partnership with key figures from the franchise, including Chief Content Officer Scott M.Gimple and Head of AMC Networks Publishing Mike Zagari. The RPG draws from current and upcoming series, introducing new story elements.

Tomas Härenstam and Mattias Johnsson Haake of Free League direct the game, with Nils Hintze as the lead writer and Gustaf Ekelund and Martin Grip as the lead artists. Joe LeFavi of Genuine Entertainment serves as producer and brand manager.


In this post-apocalyptic sandbox, players must learn to survive and thrive in the new world order. The game pushes the boundaries of the survival genre, allowing each group to customize their experience. Stress and stakes are high, and the Year Zero engine requires players to hone physical skills and confront the psychological impact of their experiences.
