Overview

The Wolf Among Us is a five-part adventure game developed and published by Telltale for the Xbox 360 (via Xbox Live Arcade), PlayStation 3 (via PlayStation Network), PC, Mac, and all iOS devices between October 11, 2013 and July 8, 2014.

Set in the same universe as Bill Willingham's comic book series Fables (and takes place 20 years before the events of the first issue), players follow Bigby Wolf, the reformed Big Bad Wolf of childhood fables and sheriff of Fabletown (an enclosed community of "fables" in late-20th-century New York City kept secret from regular "mundane" humans). When he and Snow White, assistant to the Fabletown mayor, encounter a decapitated head of a mysterious fable, they must investigate the grisly whereabouts of a fable serial killer and uncover a deep, dark conspiracy.

Similar to Telltale's previous adventure game, The Walking Dead, making decisions through actions and timed conversation trees play an important role in the game, complete with branching consequences that tailor the player's story to the pressured choices they are forced to make. Players also investigate areas for clues and engage in action sequences (using a series of quick time events).

The game will be released for the PlayStation Vita (via PlayStation Network) sometime in late 2014.
