From the creators of The Walking Dead comes The Wolf Among Us

The Walking Dead from Telltale Games received over 80 video game awards. The game was hailed for setting new benchmarks for storytelling and player immersion. This week Telltale announced the next project, The Wolf Among Us, an adventure game based on Bill Willingham and DC Comics’ Fables series.

Telltale CEO Dan Connors informed IGN that, “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  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.”

Players will take on the role of Bigby Wolf (The Big Bad Wolf), who has been exiled to New York City. As Bigby, players will keep a watch on all ”those things that go bump in the night”, like the three little pigs and Mr Toad. As a fable character Bigby possesses unique powers such as immortality, transformation and enhanced senses, his abilities include interrogation and investigation. These all point towards the potential of a great adventure game.

The Walking Dead was my 2012 game of the year. It changed my gaming pallet and now I yearn for games that are able to sweep me into a world filled with challenging moral choices, captivating stories and gut wrenching emotion. It will be interesting to see if Telltale will be able to deliver the same quality of player immersion with The Wolf Among Us as the studio did with The Walking Dead. It will be a challenge as Bigby is essentially an evil character, as opposed to Lee who was a good character faced with “evil choices”.  

One thing is certain; Telltale now has a fan base that expects a gaming experience that is fresh and able to satisfy a very specific taste bud.
