If you've been itching to play Dead of Winter, or at least see as much as you can on it, we've got a treat for you!

Rodney, Andrea and Luke Smith are doing a full playthrough of the game, with your help!

Rodney Smith's award-winning Watch it Played YouTube channel is featuring Dead of Winter over the next couple weeks. Each video will be a about a round or so of the game. They're really getting into the story, with great made-up backstories for their initial characters and everything. (I definitely want to do that when I get my copy!)

Best of all YOU get to help decide what Rodney does on his turn by leaving a comment or voting on comments after each video.

Check out the first turn below and subscribe to Watch it Played to get notified the moment new videos are uploaded.

They're playing the hardcore variant of their scenario, which I have to say is a fiendish move by Rodney considering his secret objective. (You'll have to watch the video.)

Move to hospital with one of your characters (can't decide which) and kill a zombie, then search. Hopefully you can find medicine for your objective. Perhaps also since you have a slightly insane character, there could be some good crazy logic behind it.

Watching the game so far has been great - I'm really happy I pre-ordered this, and I'm incredibly excited to get my copy next month.

I know you guys are planning on more Crossroads games, but will you be expanding DOW at all? It would be really interesting to get some variability in the outside locations, and even some new resources down the line. And of course, more characters.

As if Rodney wasn't the reason for my decision to buy enough games (For example, I had been eyeing Bioshock Infinite: Siege of Columbia for a while. When I got around to watching his play series, that tipped me over to buying it), watching this play series has made both my girlfriend and I interested in picking up Dead of Winter.
