Point and Click and BRAINS!
Telltale Games is noted for their award-winning excellence in the point and click style of adventure games. If you grew up with Sierra Online and LucasArts games this one will bring back fond memories of this style of gaming. The Walking Dead is not a first person shooter. Instead, Telltale uses a modified version of their standard point and click mechanic. The tension is built through the use of pacing, events, camera angles and the overall dramatic scenario. Death is the final consequence.
