Telltale's Fables game unleashes the Big Bad Wolf this summer

The Wolf Among Us

After the huge success of last year's The Walking Dead episodic adventure game, Telltale is focusing its efforts on another comic book-based project — an adaptation of Bill Willingham's Fables.

We learned about the game's development in early 2011, but today Telltale revealed a name: The Wolf Among Us. It's coming to PC, Mac, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 sometime this summer.

Players assume control of the Big Bad Wolf, or Bigby Wolf, who finds himself exiled in New York City. The events of the game take place prior to those of the comics. Bigby's goal is to keep other fairytale characters, like Mr. Toad and the Three Little Pigs, incognito in the human world.

“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,” Telltale chief executive officer Dan Connors told IGN. “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.”

The developer hasn't dropped The Walking Dead, though. A second season of the series will release in the fall.
