After The Walking Dead's staggering reception, it was no secret that Telltale Games would be looking to re-enter the market with a similar bang. As we already know, Telltale revealed that their next comic book-turned game venture would be from the DC comic series Fables; which today has been named The Wolf Among Us over on IGN.
Surprisingly, The Wolf Among Us will take place before the comic book adventures, instead we'll take control of Bigby Wolf; a character who's exiled to New York with the mission of keeping numerous fair tale characters under wraps and away from the prying eyes of the world.
Telltale Game's CEO Dan Connors told IGN the following:
“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. 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.”
The above quote hints that The Wolf Among Us will follow the same format as The Walking Dead; where the player will be able to tailor the dialog with a flurry of choices that'll ultimately effect how other characters respond to you. If that's true, we can expect to see yet another contender in the race for game of the year!
