The launch trailer for The Wolf Among Us sets the mood for Telltale's choice and consequences adventure as a confrontation between Sheriff Bigby Wolf and the hunter that saved Little Red Riding Hood leads to a murder investigation.
The Wolf Among Us is an adaptation of the award-winning Fables comic book series published by DC Comics under its Vertigo label. It's a mature spin on classic fairytale characters who have taken up residence in the real world. Players take on the role of Bigby Wolf, the Big Bad Wolf in human form, as he tries to protect the residents of Fabletown from being discovered by normal humans and from themselves. Like The Walking Dead, it's a game of choices and consequences with players deciding whether to unleash Bigby's inner monster or not.
