The Wolf Among Us

Post by FoxKnight »

This is not a werewolf game. You just play as the Big Bad Wolf, Bigby Wolf, as it were, from the fable who may or may not be a werewolf, though he may just be using Glamour, which is magic that can make a Fable look human. (Not really sure which is correct.)

The story is based on the comic book Fables; all of the fables (The Three Little Pigs, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Beauty and the Beast, etc.) are real and have come to live in Manhattan, in an area called Fabletown. It's very much in the style of The Walking Dead game that came out last year, which was a very good game also, because Telltale Games made both of these. A point-click adventure with quicktime events and is very story centric. There will be five chapters, two of which are available now with new chapters coming out every month, I believe, much like the Walking Dead did last year.

Here's a bit of gameplay:

It's out on Xbox 360. Go figure. For only $6, I may have to try this thing out.

Oh, my god -- I just finished playing this thing (I should say binge-playing this thing). The Wolf Among Us is possibly the most awesome werewolf game since Skyrim (though totally different). Okay, granted, it's not exactly a werewolf game, but you get to play a werewolf, and it's awesome.

It somehow reminds me of that old MTV series, Liquid Television -- just for sheer weird-ness. The film-noir aspect is totally cool too. I won't spoiler it, but it's actually got a really good story, and you get really sucked into the characters. Definitely two non-opposable thumbs up!

:o I didn't even know there was a season 2. It's not on the website. Where did you hear about this? I would love to play that.

Oops, I mixed up The Wolf Among Us with The Walking Dead xD
But the season 2 for The Wolf Among Us is scheduled to release late this year.
