TellTale Games' new XBLA series, The Wolf Among Us
promises to take the same level of polish, design and consequences-based storytelling of The Walking Dead
and bring it to the world of Fables
. The fairytale characters that make up the world of Fables
are hiding out in the "mundane" world, specifically New York City which was New Amsterdam when the Fables were forced out of their homelands by The Adversary (and no spoilers for those of you that have read the award-winning graphic novels). For The Wolf Among Us
, players will take control of Bigby Wolf, the Big Bad Wolf from the story of the Three Little Pigs, as he keeps order amongst the Fables which as this trailer shows, sometimes requires excessive force.
The Wolf Among Us
currently has no release date, but it will be released episodically this Fall.
