Gaming Review: The Wolf Among Us: Episode 1
Adaptation of the Fables comic books transplant fairytale characters to the grit of New York City
Monday 04 November 2013
Following the success of last year's The Walking Dead series, Telltale Games have turned to a different comic property for their latest adventure.
Based on Bill Willingham's long-running Fables saga, The Wolf Among Us stars a community of fairytale characters exiled from their natural habitats and forced to live undercover in New York City.
An expletive-laden script quickly dispels any doubts that the game might prove too cutesy, as you take control of Fabletown's sheriff, Bigby Wolf, to investigate the gruesome murder of a damsel in distress.
Using familiar brush-pen styling, the game is awash in neon colours and looks fantastic, utilising the same point-and-click mechanics that worked so well for Telltale last year.
Four more episodes will follow, with player decisions altering the plot's development.
