    "This is not a good solution, I think I'll go and have a look at more PC only episodic storytelling games listed here. This does not meet my requirements and not answering well the main questions."

    "As a fan of first the comic book, then the television shows, I have to say that The Walking Dead game for the PC is the best episodic story games I've ever played. The characters are excellent and the game play is both challenging and fun. I highly recommend you put down your crowbar & step out of your orange suit so you can embrace the dead."

    "I'll be completely honest, I've been completely bored with most of the videogames that have been released lately. I couldn't find a game that satisfied my need for a good episodic storytelling adventure. Luckily a friend recommended Tales from the Borderlands and it completely blew my mind. Everything about the game, the story, the characters, the graphics, is top notch and I completely recommend it to anyone looking for a good storytelling game. "

    "While the concept is good, the game itself is sadly lacking. I was fully expecting to spend hours participating in a story, the game itself seemed to be rushed to a point where it seemed like it had somewhere else to be. There simply was no time to explore things, just hurry to the goal as quickly as possible. Disappointing to say the least."

    "You can always find hidden gems on Steam and this is one of them. For the price this is going for, it is a steal. In my opinion, the storyline of certain games in the episodic storytelling genre is a bit dull. We have heard many of the stories before. The Journey Down actually provides a unique story that is very enthralling and unique. The culture of the game stands out when compared to other games."

    "Minecraft: Story Mode delivers a storytelling game, but there may be more interesting games out there for sophisticated storytelling game enthusiasts. For those new to this genre like myself, it will be quite entertaining though. It may be worth trying as it is pretty reasonably priced."
