We’ve known for a while that Telltale has the rights to make a game based on Bill Willingham’s Fables comic series, IGN today reports that Telltale has titled the project The Wolf Among Us. The game series will follow Bigby Wolf as he is exiled from the fantasy world to New York City. The first episode will release this summer on PC, Mac, Xbox 360 and PS3.
Also making appearances in the games will be Mr. Toad and the Three Little Pigs. It’ll take place before the main comic series, and will be an original story in the Fables universe.
“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 Telltale CEO Dan Connors. “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.”
So they’re sticking with the choice-based plot, I see. That cheers me up, for sure.
