Recommendation to Telltale Developers: DON'T kill off Clementine.
While I can't control the outcome of what the developers decide, if you're a developer and you're reading this, it would be a huge mistake to kill off Clementine. At least make it so that it is determinable by choices if she dies or not if you do have to make a scene where she dies. But if you have to do any of that please make her surviving be the default. Please. Many of the stories you've made have choices that do have consequences but in the end the result ends up being the same, until the next season. We want Clementine to live.
This is why she shouldn't be killed off: Me and anyone else who enjoys Telltale's the Walking Dead knows that there have been very few happy endings. Clementine is one of the most iconic characters to come from the gaming industry in years. Killing her off would essentially be killing off your company. It would turn me and many others off Telltale games as a whole. There are enough sad endings, just please make this one good. Sad and depressing endings can be good, but in this case we do not want Clementine to be killed off.
It would also be very cliché to have Clem die in the end. Which goes into one of the reasons why it would turn me and many others off of Telltale. I'm not saying this just because I like the character a lot. That's only one reason. It would be disastrous to the industry as I said, because not only are spinoffs marketed towards iconic characters such as Clementine in comics, gaming, etc. But we know you sell merchandise through Skybound and we like it. If you kill off Clementine, people are not going to buy your merch. Take this from a fellow developer who knows a little about marketing.
In conclusion, and I know I sound like a broken record, but please don't kill her off. I like your company and I like her as a character, she's probably my favorite videogame character next to a couple others, and I would like to see some spinoffs or even continuations with her involved. I love the action figures as well, keep them up. People also strive off of the fan continuations involving her, including me, as I have a community based game which includes Clementine as a playable character. Killing her off would be devastating to our community.
Thank you for your hard work in developing such engrossing and realistic stories, please keep it up and keep Clem alive while you're at it. ^_^
