Telltale Games teases new episodic game ‘The Wolf Among Us’
Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead was arguably one of the best games of 2012, demanding more from gamers than just mindless action. It made gamers think through their conversation choices and decisions, and it made them pay attention to everything from major choices to little details. And there were disgusting, flesh-hungry zombies. So that’s always cool.
So how do you follow that up? More of the same, done better.
That’s Telltale Games’ goal in their next offering, The Wolf Among Us. Based on Bill Willingham’s comic book series FABLES, the game follows the story of Bigby Wolf, once known as the infamous “Big Bad Wolf.” Wolf now operates as the sheriff of a hidden community of ousted fairy tale characters who are now very real, tucked away in New York City. Wolf’s job: maintain the peace amongst the characters on the gritty streets while staying unnoticed by the normal world around them.
The first episode is slated for release this summer on Xbox LIVE, PlayStation Network, and on PC and Mac via online distributors or Telltale Games’ website. As a teaser, Telltale Games released several screenshots from the game, showcasing the unique art style. Enjoy!
