Yesterday, Telltale Games revealed the first batch of screenshots for their upcoming new point-and-click adventure titled The Wolf Among Us.
Based on the DC Entertainment’s popular FABLES series, The Wolf Among Us serves as a prequel to all the events that take place within Bill Willingham’s award-winning series of stories. Telltale Games included the first 5 screenshots along with a brief description of the storyline below.
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.
In addition to yesterday’s screenshots from The Wolf Among Us, Telltale Games also confirmed that The Walking Dead Season 2 would indeed be launching this fall. Previous reports had indicated that we might not see the next season of The Walking Dead until 2014 at the earliest, and I’m personally glad that this is not the case. Telltale Games has successfully proven that point-and-click adventure games can be both fun and engaging for all types of audiences, and I feel they may have another hit on their hands with The Wolf Among Us.
We are expecting to learn more about both games at this year’s E3 expo. Be sure to come back and check out the site in the weeks ahead for more updates.
