In The Walking Dead: Episode 2, players can see how their story continues based on the all of decisions that they made in Episode One, ‘A New Day.’
We get to see the fruits of our labor in the first game in The Walking Dead: Episode 2 , The Game is all about choice and the consequence from choosing it. Rather than focus on action, the main point of the game is about building relationships by interacting with other people. You don't get a second chance to say anything in this adventure game; dialogue pops up, and a limited amount of time to make a choice that will have consequences on your friends and make new enemies.
Every decisions is then carried on into future episodes, so The Walking Dead: Episode 2 is the first time to see what that exactly means, and what it means is a whole lot of reasons to replay the episode. How much Clementine trusts you, what Lilly thinks of you, which lies do you have to remember -- all of the decisions you have made before set the stage for Lee’s continuing story. Based on which survivor you saved in Episode 1, you have different defenses and plenty of new information in Episode 2.
