The lights are on
Telltale's follow-up to The Walking Dead, the twisted take on fairy tales The Wolf Among Us, is now available for pre-order.
A season pass for The Wolf Among Us will be $24.99, but it's for sale on Steam and Telltale's website now for $22.49 (10 percent off list price). In addition, if you order from Telltale, you'll get a bonus DVD mailed to you at the end of the season (though you'll have to pick up the tab for shipping).
While no specific release date has been given yet, the first episode of The Wolf Among Us will be released before the end of this month.

Our Take:I'm curious how The Wolf Among Us is received. The Walking Dead definitely put Telltale on a new level in the industry, that series is tied to a very popular TV show -- a lot more high profile than Fables, the graphic novel series that The Wolf Among Us is inspired by. Still, I have faith that the studio can create a gripping tale filled with powerful choices.

It looks interesting, I will watch for this one.
I still need to get the Walking Dead. I swore that I would buy it as soon as it went on sale the next time, and I passed it up when it was like, $7.50.
Well I'm preordering this after I get paid. TT's Walking Dead game(s) was/were/are amazing and I'm hoping that this will be on par or better.
can't wait for this...

I too have faith in Telltale after what The Walking Dead did for me. Fairytales seem like ripe territory for episodic storytelling, and that excites me. I love the idea of a big bad wolf as an engaging anti-hero, so we'll see where this goes. Even though they're dishing out pre-orders already, I'm still figuring that this is gonna hit by 2014 rather than 2013 if they haven't given a clear date by now. I will wait though, as I can't wait to see what Telltale does for itself into this next generation.
I actually can't wait till this comes out. I'm very curious on how they will approach this concept. I wasn't a huge fan for the Walking Dead series, only the tv show. But I'm glad they are trying something new.
For some reason the character in the picture looks like a very angry Obi-Wan Kenobi to me.
I'm definitely preordering this. Another Telltale game I'm pretty excited about.
The Walking Dead was a strong title. I enjoy Fable more than Walking Dead as far as the comics go, so I'm incredibly stoked for this game.
Iam so excited for this...but my god iam worried about it.
I want to check this game out!!!!
