Walking Dead maestros reveal next project: 'The Wolf Among Us'

Bigby Wolf stars in Fables game

TellTale Games has officially revealed 'The Wolf Among Us', a game based in the DC Comics' Fables universe.


IGN reports The Wolf Among Us takes place prior to Bill Willingham's award-winning series and casts players as Bigby Wolf (Big Bad Wolf), who has been exiled to New York from the land of the fable homelands.

Bigby must keep fairy tale characters including Mr. Toad and the Three Little Pigs undetected 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," 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."

TellTale first revealed it has acquired the rights to develop a Fables gam, along with The Walking Dead, in February 2011. Its first season of The Walking Dead received widespread critical acclaim.

The Wolf Among Us is scheduled for release on Xbox 360, PC, Mac and PlayStation 3 this summer.
