Bigby

twau_reveal_newswire

My reasoning had led to me to believe that the next Telltale Games series – The Wolf Among Us – was not due out until 2014. Thankfully after reading this excellent piece on its development and a bit of further digging I now know that the first episode is due in Q2 2013. Colour me excited!

Here are some of the finer points from the article;

  • Players will run with the Bigby Wolf character in this prequel to Fables.
  • Minor characters from the Fables comic book like Mr.Toad and Colin (one of the three little pigs) will get bigger roles in the game.
  • Ichabod Crane will govern as Deputy Mayor.
  • Bigby will be investigating a murder as sheriff of Fabletown.
  • The threat of a Fable blowing their cover will also be introduced and will be something players will need to be mindful of.
  • The Snow White/Bigby relationship will have its origins in the game. Players will have moments where betrayal of trust will have to be addressed.
  • Player choice extends to deciding when to visit certain locations, who to help and when to use violence or intimidation.
  • Bigby can resort to using his wolf instincts through violent confrontation within the narrative but it will come at a cost.
  • Violent confrontations will be more ‘over the top’ than in The Walking Dead but will still be driven by the narrative.

As I did with The Walking Dead game from Telltale Games, I will be doing a game diary of The Wolf Among Us as soon as episode one hits the XBLA.

  1. I remember hearing about a Fables based game ages back and it all went quiet…

    This is great news. Definitely going to be buying it.

  2. Did you/do you read the comic book? I’ve read the first two trades; loved the first but thought the second was a wee bit weaker. Probably will now pick up a the third and fourth to ready myself for the game.

  3. I dip in and out of the comics. The main thing I’ve read in the past year was Werewolves of the Heartland, the first full graphic novel – not a trade of regular comic issues.

  4. How was that? Had planned on looking over Fairest as it still relatively a new spin-off title within the Fables universe.
