Telltale’s adventure game based on the long-running Vertigo series is coming out this summer, and the developer is starting to do slow rollout of what to expect from the game at various media outlets in advance of “Fables'” summer release on Xbox LIVE, PSN, Mac, and the PC. A new batch of screens shows off “The Wolf Among Us” protagonist Bigby Wolf (or The Big Bad Wolf to you and me) hitting the pavement and (and Fabletown residents) as he looks for clues in a mystery set before the first issue of the series.
From the official synopsis:
Set prior to the events seen in the first issue of the FABLES comic book series, The Wolf Among Us puts players in the role of Bigby Wolf, a man once more infamously known as The Big Bad Wolf. Now the sheriff of a hidden community in New York City, exiled from the land of fairy tales, Bigby is tasked by the bureaucrat Snow White to keep order within a society of mythical creatures and characters trying to remain undetected in the world of the mundane. From a chain-smoking member of ’The Three Little Pigs,’ to a car-stealing Mr. Toad itching for his next wild ride, The Wolf Among Us examines the lives of beings straight from the pages of myth and lore, now trying to survive on the meanest and most run-down streets of New York City.
