This week we consider the position that this season of The Walking Dead puts us in as we step into the shoes of a most vulnerable survivor, a child.
 

This season of Telltale’s The Walking Dead has offered players a way into the story via a familiar character, Lee Everett’s ward Clementine.

This week—among other issues raised this time out—we consider the strangeness of “being Clementine” as opposed to what would normally be the case in a video game with such a serious tone, a less vulnerable, more adult character.
