Telltale Games, in cooperation with DC Entertainment, today revealed The Wolf Among Us, a game based on Bill Willingham’s award-winning comic book series ‘FABLES’, one of DC Entertainment’s longest-running series published under its Vertigo imprint since 2002 which has won over a dozen Eisner Awards, including Best Writer, Best New Series, and numerous wins for Best Serialized Story.

Set before the events seen in the first issue of the FABLES comic book series, The Wolf Among Us puts players in the shoes 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 real world.

“Developing ‘The Wolf Among Us’ based on the ‘FABLES’ universe has allowed our studio to build upon all of the hallmarks of what makes our episodic series so engaging for players,” said Dan Connors, CEO and Co-Founder of Telltale Games . “Through an evolution of our approach to choice and consequence, we can further explore the complexity of each and every iconic character in a universe rich with untold history from the darkest sides of the storybooks.”

The Wolf Among Us will be released this Summer on the Xbox 360 the PS3, and on PC and Mac from the Telltale Online Store and other digital distribution outlets.
