I started playing the game as a fan who was already gaga for Robert Kirkman’s amazing comic book - it was an added bonus that my brother, Sean Ainsworth, was working on the game as well. Thanks to Sean, I became personally involved when my likeness was used for the character of Eddie in 400 Days. Eventually, I became part of the team and got to author the...
