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