Fables author: The Wolf Among Us is “brilliant”

If you're a fan of Telltale Games' award-winning episodic series 'The Walking Dead', a fan of the comic book series Fables, or better yet--both--you are in for a treat later this year.


On the Facebook page for The Wolf Among Us, Telltale Games' most recent project based on the comic 'Fables', original Fables writer Bill Willingham gave the project his official seal of approval.

Perhaps 'approval' isn't really the word, as the glowing commendation reads a little more like a love letter. In fact, Willingham goes so far as to reveal that he's been so happy with the direction Telltale has taken that he went out of his way to ensure The Wolf Among Us is canon in the Fables universe. Sweet.

The men and women at Telltale got the story right. They know the true story of Fables frontwards and back, so well in fact that I went out of my way to reach a separate deal with Telltale, not only to do what I can to help direct the story of their game, but to make the story in the game canon in the greater Fables fictional universe. That may seem a pretty bold step to take, but their in-game story merits it. It’s brilliant to the point of there being far too many moments of, “I wish I’d thought of that.”

The Walking Dead was a fantastic adaptation of the original comic, and we're incredibly excited to see what comes of The Wolf Among Us.

The Wolf Among Us is scheduled for a Q2 2013 release, and will be released on PC, Mac, Xbox 360 and PS3.
