Will we have to read the comic book to get the most out of the game?

I learned about Telltale from their The Walking Dead game. I liked it so much that I then went on to play Sam and Max season 3 as well, which I loved as well. So I am totally on board for their next project, Fables.

Thing is, I´ve never read the comics, and I was wondering if I would be missing something by starting the game without any knowledge of the source material. For example, I remember the fifth episode of Sam and Max, which was chock full of references to previous episodes and old characters returning, but since I hadn´t played the other seasons it all fell kind of flat for me :confused:.


Well, that´s all. Looking forward to the game :D!

    Seriously, when will they start the hype? :confused:

    Given the success that "TWD" has had - I get the sneaking suspicion that "Fables" will be pushed back again in favour of getting season two out first...

    Not really. In the last Playing Dead the folks at Telltale said that with TWD finished, all their efforts are going towards their next game, Fables.

    Anyone else thinks it's funny that the King's Quest forum is livelier than the Fables forum, even though Fables is coming first?

    Not really. King's Quest is already a game series, so people came over to the game developer's forum to talk about it (and since it was a game series, the fans get their news from the game sites, so they knew it was announced).

    Fables was never made into a game series. A lot of the fans of the comic probably don't even know about the upcoming Telltale game, and some of those that do know about the game are likely waiting for some preview material to get released first. The Telltale Games forum for The Walking Dead was pretty desolate too before art and footage started coming out.

    That's why I started reading them too. :D

    Started on Book 1 of the Deluxe Edition recently, and already loving the characters and universe.

    I don't think that's something to be concerned about. We're all getting pretty excited for Fables (not least of all me)!

    I think the only possible answer to that right now is "later", or perhaps "when we're ready". ;)

    If it helps at all, our first Fables-related tweet of the year went out today...

  • Why always Twitter? When will we, facebook users, be acknowledged :p ?
