The Walking Dead: Destinies was released on Friday, November 17th and is creating something to talk about. Just like Lord of The Rings: Gollum and Skull Island: Rise of Kong, the comments are not praise: the title became a meme because of its terrible production quality.
Several videos from some of the people who actually bought the game show several problems. From animation quality, bugs or simply Presentation of very low quality, the game costing almost R$250 disappointed users.

One of the aspects that most negatively impresses users is that the game’s cutscenes are basically scenes with frozen 3D objects, including the characters. The camera moves to try to give greater dynamism to the scenes, but still, everything is assembled with static 3D assets with dubbing on top.

Of course, this is just one of the problems. The game has very strange gameplay and also bizarre bugs, according to reports and videos shared on social media. Check out another example below.

Controversial publisher responsible for the game
Despite being different development studios, Both Skull Island: Rise of Kong and The Walking Dead: Destinies are from the same distributor, GameMil Entertainment. This can now serve as a warning about the level of production quality that we can expect for future releases from the publisher.
Just like the King Kong game, this seems to follow the same mold of taking advantage of a successful entertainment franchise to create a minimally popular game. But they deliver something with a much lower quality than what we see on the market, especially in this price range.
The game’s official proposal is to place the player at key moments in the trajectory of the main story of The Walking Dead, so that he can deal with the events of this world in his own way.
The game has a bug that prevents progress on PS5
Unfortunately, it is impossible to have this complete experience with a bug that prevents PlayStation 5 players from finishing the game, preventing progress on the console. The developer has already commented on the problem on social media and should correct it in future updates of the game.
