By now I’m sure that most of you have finished the first season of the Walking Dead series by Telltale Games, and if you haven’t then stop reading this waffle immediately and get playing! Assuming you have sampled the best adventure game in years however, you might well be wondering what is next from Telltale. That is if you haven’t already downloaded the first episode of their all-new series, The Wolf Among Us. The first installment is already available for download for PS3 and Xbox 360, but now it has been announced that a Vita version is also forthcoming, as well as several other versions including iOS.
Based on the award-winning Fables comic book series, The Wolf Among Us is an often violent, mature and hard-boiled thriller where the characters and creatures of myth, lore and legend are real and exist in our world. These aren’t QUITE the characters you might remember from childhood stories though. Playing as Bigby Wolf – THE big bad wolf in human form – you’ll discover that the brutal, bloody murder of a Fable is just a taste of things to come.
If you enjoyed The Walking Dead, then you should also find much to love in The Wolf Among Us, as it uses a very similar gameplay style, albeit more action oriented. The Vita and iOS versions of The Walking Dead were also well received, with the former offering a choice of physical and touch-screen options which arguably made it the definitive version of the game. No news yet on the release date and price for the handheld versions of The Wolf Among Us, however we have been promised ‘this year’ – so get ready to cozy up in bed or in front of the fire this winter, with the gaming equivalent of a good book.
