Telltale Games quickly made a name for itself by turning popular movie franchises into video games (Back to the Future, Jurassic Park). More recently, they had tremendous success with their game based on The Walking Dead comic book. They’re sticking with comic books for their next title—DC Comics’ The Wolf Among Us—due out for consoles and Mac/PC this summer.
The Wolf Among Us will be available on Xbox LIVE Marketplace for Xbox 360, PlayStationNetwork, and on PC and Mac from the Telltale Online Store and other digital distribution outlets.
Bill Willingham’s award-winning comic book series FABLES is one of DC Entertainment’s longest-running series published under its Vertigo imprint since 2002. The series—which imagines that characters such as Snow White, The Big Bad Wolf and Pinocchio from the world’s most beloved storybooks are real and living among us—has won over a dozen Eisner Awards, including Best Writer, Best New Series, and numerous wins for Best Serialized Story.
Set prior to the events seen in the first issue of the FABLES comic book series, The Wolf Among Us puts players in the role of Bigby Wolf, a man once more infamously known as The Big Bad Wolf. Now the sheriff of a hidden community in New York City, exiled from the land of fairy tales, Bigby is tasked by the bureaucrat Snow White to keep order within a society of mythical creatures and characters trying to remain undetected in the world of the mundane. From a chain-smoking member of ‘The Three Little Pigs,’ to a car-stealing Mr. Toad itching for his next wild ride, 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.
