Telltale Games is back and introducing a brand new game similar in style to The Walking Dead. The Wolf Among us, based on Bill Willingham’s comic book series Fables, puts players in the role of Bigby Wolf (The Big Bad Wolf) during his exile in New York City. The lawman tries to keep fairy tale characters like Mr. Toad and the Three Little Pigs safe from detection in our world.
“Developing The Wolf Among Us based on the Fables universe has allowed our studio to build upon all of the hallmarks of what makes our episodic series so engaging for players,” said Telltale CEO Dan Connors, “Though an evolution of our approach to choice and consequence, we can further explore the complexity of each and every iconic character in a universe rich with untold history from the darkest sides of the storybooks.”
Despite the fact that I do not know much about the Fables comics, my love for the darker side of fairy tales as well as Telltale’s involvement immediately makes this episodic game a must. Look forward to more on this game in the near future.
The Wolf Among Us will hit Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and Mac this summer.
