The Wolf Among Us is Telltale's first game in the post-Walking Dead world, based off of the Fables series by Bill Willingham - WAIT NO COME BACK I SWEAR IT'S GOOD. The heroes and villains of every fairy tale you can imagine, due to a series of unfortunate events, are stuck living right under the noses of humans (called "mundies") in New York City. You play as Bigby Wolf, sheriff of Fabletown and dreamy detective out to solve a mystery.
2. Okay, that's cool. But what's the game part of this game like?
The Wolf Among Us features an updated control scheme from The Walking Dead. It is very heavily conversation based, with up to four options to choose from when in dialogue with another character and a limited amount of time to choose what to say or do. It still has your typical adventure game investigation portions, and moments of action are still quick-time related. Action events have a wider variety of keys to press and a more visceral reaction when you're hitting them. It's hard to say if your conversation choices will have a bigger impact on the plot than TWD, but I guess we'll know that for sure once the second episode releases. Supposedly, choosing when to do something will also have a big impact on the story, not just choosing what to do this time around. You'll also be able to decide whether to let Bigby give in to his Big Bad Wolf side and terrify the Fables around him into submission, or to play him as someone who is actively trying to fit in and live a less lonely existence by being a decent person.
