Mmmm, something is up at Fablescon! :D

Saturday, 3:00 pm:
"Boring Panel Room
In the Shadow of the Wolf. As long as we’re already in this room talking about Fables, Telltale Games gives us a first look at their upcoming video game based on the Fables Series. Join Richard Iggo from Telltale, as he grills Bill Willingham, or maybe it will be the other way around, but in any case, one of them will show you a few visuals from the game, and give away as few secrets as they can hold on to."

  • @Tjibbbe said: GDC does start at the 25th. Telltale isn't listed as an exhibitor, so Fables probably won't have a presence at the show floor. There are a couple (I counted 4) panels with people from Telltale, but three of those are about Walking Dead and one of those is about breaking into the video game business (with Jake Rodkin). Nothing about Telltale's general future or Fables, but who knows if they'll let something slip at the Walking Dead panels.



    I wouldn't be surprised if Jake hints a little about The Walking Dead: Season 2, Fables, or the new Poker Night. Guess were gonna have to play the waiting game now.

  • Starting to read the comics now, really looking forwarrd to it. Hoping to get as far as possible before the game comes out.

    I've been searching for these sneak peeks and haven't found them but if you do please let us know ;)

  • From "Level Up Entertainment":
    "There is also a game coming from Tell Tale, that is looking very exciting!"

    Froma "Comic book Resources":
    "[...] and the highly anticipated Fables video game from Telltale Games will be released this summer."

  • Here's something interesting

    “Fables” fans also got to see their favorite winged monkey librarian take flight Saturday during Telltale Games’ preview of the upcoming video game set in the comic’s world. The title won’t be announced until Wednesday, but Telltale’s Richard Iggo said gamers would play as Bigby Wolf, that there would be new characters and that the story is set before Issue 1 of the series. He said players will feel the “narrative clock ticking” in the game, and that outcomes are not determined only by choices, but also by the timing of those choices.

    “We’ve always strived to see the players of our games … as the last collaborator in the creation of the story,” he said.

    Willingham said the game is canon, and there are ideas Telltale originated that he wants to “steal” for future “Fables” issues.

    Emphasis mine.

    So it's a prequel, there will be some new characters in the game, and Bill Willingham will use Telltale's ideas in future issues of the comics. And the decision timer seems to have a more important role in Fables than in The Walking Dead.

    Although that latter part might be bad news to some that wanted a way to disable the timer in The Walking Dead, I find the prospect of the timing of the choices actually affecting the gameplay very interesting indeed. :)

  • Interesting that it's a prequel.. the storyline from the beginning of Fables was so good..and they don't get any of that? Really needs to start with a murder that Bigby is investigating..guess we will have to see what it is then..

  • I'm glad it'll be set before the comic. While I've read the first few issues, I can't call myself truly familiar with the source, so it's nice non-fans won't be alienated. I've read enough to know Bigby's a cool guy, though, so I'm also glad he's the protagonist. :p

    But I'm not glad that, so far, it seems identical to The Walking Dead gameplay-wise. We all liked TWD, but I really don't want interactive movies to become the new standard for Telltale, which is looking more and more like the case.
