The dead have risen! Run for your lives!

Or just jog. Actually you could probably get away with a quick mosey, because the zombies from the hit comic/TV series 'The Walking Dead' are more of the slow, shambling variety. But while their lack of speed is something of a detriment, it's proving to be a boon for gamers thanks to a just-released downloadable game.

Made by the brainy adventure game maestros at Telltale Games, The Walking Dead: Episode 1 is the first in a five-part episodic journey through a world beset by a zombie epidemic. Forget the run-and-gun chaos of Resident Evil, though: The Walking Dead is a gorgeous, cel-shaded drama steeped in the same moral ambiguity as the comic franchise  on which it's based. You'll take down your fair share of corpses, of course, but the real danger lies in how you deal with other survivors as you make your way through a zombie-ravaged Georgia.

Sound intriguing? Critics think so, giving it high marks for its great delivery and emotionally engaging plot. But don't take their word for it — take one of the 6 free codes we're giving away today instead.

We'll be blasting out 2 Xbox 360 codes, 2 PSN codes and 2 Steam codes for The Walking Dead: Episode 1 this afternoon at 4:00 (PST) on the Yahoo! Games Facebook page. If you've got any brains left in that lucky head of yours, you'll head over and give us a 'like.'

Remember: Each code is unique and only works once, so if you try one and it doesn't work, someone else already claimed it. Good luck!
