Much like in The Walking Dead, player choices will have repercussions for characters throughout the season. As the Big Bad Wolf we can be nasty or nice as it launches this summer.
The studio chose Fables because of it being a very character-driven narrative, which works out great for adventure games.
"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,” said Dan Connors, CEO of Telltale Games . “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.”
Bigby Wolf is the sheriff of hidden community nestled in New York City that's been exiled from fairy tales island, or whatever. Snow White charges Wolf to keep order among the creatures to ensure they don't go do something stupid amongst us mere mundane mortals.
"...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 most run-down streets of New York City."
The Wolf Among Us releases on Xbox 360, PS3, PC and Mac this summer.
