Straight from the studio that brought us the masterwork that is the first season of The Walking Dead game comes The Wolf Among Us, a brand new series based on a graphic novel franchise from DC Comics’ Vertigo. That series is Fables, and the game looks to capture the essence that Fables fans have loved for ages.
This premiere trailer gives viewers a small taste of what to expect in the world of Fables from Bigby Wolf’s perspective. Here’s a loose take on the skinny for the uninitiated among us. The fairy tales you know, like Snow White, Red Riding Hood, Boy Blue and Jack Horner, have all left their Fable realm and now live amongst humans in the real world.
Bigby Wolf, that’s the Big Bad Wolf, is a detective in the real world. The Wolf Among Us will tell pieces of Bigby’s story.
Based entirely on Telltale’s run with The Walking Dead, I knew I’d give The Wolf Among Us a shot upon release. Add to that the fact that I absolutely love what I’ve read of Bill Willingham’s Fables series, and you’ve got an absolute guarantee that this game registers as a must-have. I hope it lives up to my expectations.
The Wolf Among Us is an episodic series that’s set to begin either later this summer or early this fall. It will release on the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
