Telltale Games has just announced they are developing The Wolf Among Us . It is based on the Fables comic franchise.
The game’s premise involves taking on the role of Bigby Wolf , a trechcoat-wearing, cigarrete-smoking wolf in human form who is the sheriff of Fabletown. Just like past Telltale games, players will have to tackle a choice-based moral system where you have to decide if Bigby should give in to the bad wolf side, or whether he should try to keep everybody safe like the Three Little Pigs. Bigby’s adventures are centered around him making sure the citizens of Fabletown aren’t seen by normal people. He’s kinda like a furry Rorschach.
The Wolf Among Us won’t coincide with the main storyline of the comic books but will have a parallel setting just like like what they did with The Walking Dead; the game wont be canon.
Below is the official announcement:
“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. Through 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.” – Dan Conners CEO, Telltale Games
The Wolf Among Us will be coming to the PC, Mac, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this summer.
