We've been keeping this one under wraps for a while, and today we're excited to announce that Telltale unleashes The Wolf Among Us this summer! Based on Bill Willingham's award-winning comic book series FABLES, the season will debut on XBLA, PSN, PC and Mac.
A consistent New York Times bestseller and winner of over a dozen Eisner awards, the FABLES universe has become one of the richest mythologies in comics. Storybook characters like Snow White, The Big Bad Wolf and Pinocchio are real, and living incognito among us in the mundane ("mundy") world. Of course, their heritage means they are not quite like us...
Set prior to the events in the first issue in the comic book series, The Wolf Among Us puts players in the role of Bigby Wolf, a man once more infamously known as The Big Bad Wolf. Now the sheriff of Fabletown, a hidden enclave of exiled Fables living in New York City, Bigby is tasked by bureaucrat Snow White to keep order within the society of mythical creatures and characters trying to remain undetected in the world of the mundane. From a chain-smoking member of 'The Three Little Pigs' to a car-thieving Mr. Toad itching for his next wild ride, The Wolf Among Us examines the lives of beings straight from the pages of myth and lore, now trying to survive on the meanest and grittiest streets of New York City.
Our very own Dan Connors, Telltale's CEO and Co-Founder, said this week: "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."
The Telltale team can't WAIT to unveil more about this upcoming game series as we inch closer to its expected summer launch.
