Discussing The Wolf Among Us
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Game Informer recently posted a new article about Telltale Games' upcoming next adventure, The Wolf Among Us. In cooperation with DC Entertainment the company is adapting Bill Willingham's award-winning comic book series, FABLES, to a new gaming adventure available to on variety of platforms, including Macs, this Summer.

Telltale is ready for this challenge with a new project: The Wolf Among Us, based on Bill Willingham's Fables comic book series from Vertigo. In Willingham’s world, classic fairytales collide with reality. Every character is real, but lives in a separate world. Once an evil entity named the Adversary threatens their homelands, they flee to a place he would never look: our world. They hide among us with their powers intact, living an everyday existence, hoping to keep their secret under wraps. These famed characters also have a darker edge than the stories we’ve heard about them. Happy endings? Forget it. Prince Charming is a womanizing cheater, and Cinderella uses her good looks to exploit information as a spy.

Willingham’s dark interpretations have won him much fanfare, as the Fables series has topped the comic charts and won numerous Eisner awards. Imagining our favorite fairytales in a new light is a trend that is dominating popular culture right now. It breathes into our entertainment channels from movies like Snow White and the Huntsman, Jack the Giant Killer, Mirror Mirror, and Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters to TV shows like Once Upon A Time and Grimm. Much like picking up The Walking Dead license right before the TV show started getting popular, Telltale is striking while the iron is just as hot with Fables. The company acquired the license at the same time as The Walking Dead, mainly because both series were dominating the bestseller lists for comics. Telltale focused on The Walking Dead first, but now it’s finally showing us the seedy side to the fables we’ve all grown up with. When we discuss The Wolf Among Us with Telltale, the excitement and confidence about the new project is palpable. “The Walking Dead has been getting a lot of attention; now it’s Fables’ turn to shine,” says CTO and president Kevin Bruner. “Everything just feels right about it for our next game.”
