Telltale Games Announces ‘The Wolf Among Us’ New Series
It would only be a matter of time before the story driven company known as Telltale Games revealed its next venture. After high levels of success with zombies in The Walking Dead point-and-click type series, the company now moves on to its next venture, The Wolf Among Us.
“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 and Co-Founder 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.”
Keeping with its graphic novel derived creations, the game takes another stab at an entirely new universe out of a comic series. The DC Entertainment series known as FABLES is the backdrop for the game. Players take on the role of Bigby Wolf aka ‘The Big Bad Wolf’ as they venture through New York in the pre-cursor to the FABLES series. Other literary works, such as the “Three Little Pigs” are intertwined into the fiction. Such stories are now told in a gritty, darker tone.
The Wolf Among Us is slated to release Summer 2013 on console, PC and Mac.
