The protagonists

Together they must learn to trust each other on a journey across the devastated United States, in a storyline that has become a little more relatable to audiences after their experiences during the coronavirus pandemic in recent years.

“The aim is to help us safely experience things that would otherwise be more painful. An expedition like this allows people to experience, beyond the pandemic, the pain of loss and also theto the happiness of reconnection and rebirth even in extreme circumstances,” Mazin said of the series’ timeliness and usefulness.

With new chapters every Sunday at 11 p.m. on HBO and HBO Max, the series premiere on Sunday, Jan. 15 became the most-watched premiere on the streaming platform in Latin America in its first 24 hours.

The success is due in part to the expectations of the legion of fans the game has had since it was originally released in 2013, with numerous awards and over 37 million copies sold. But also to the specialized critics, who announced practically unanimously after having accessed the chapters in advance what it was all about “One of the best adaptations of a video game.”

Mazin hopes the series’ success “may help video game storytelling finally take the place of other forms of storytelling.”

I love playing video games. I’ve been playing it all my life, ever since my dad bought the first one Atari and took it home. I hope this inspires other artists and filmmakers to look at video games and their stories and tell them in an exalted way.”
