Review by Taj Williams
Now in case you been living under a rock, Telltale games who developed the now classic Walking Dead season one and now season two games are now working their magic on the underrated often overlooked Fables series coming out of Vertigo imprint from DC Comics. Like Walking Dead this is another point and click adventure in which players control the main protagonist Sheriff Bigby Wolf also known in the world of Fabletown as the reformed Big Bad Wolf.
So far the plot is a pretty straight forward whodunit tale. Fairy tale creatures are dying and it’s up to Bigby’s and his supporting cast such as Snow White, Magic Mirror, & Bulfkin the winged monkey from the Wizard of Oz lore to crack the case. Without spoiling much this episode picks up after the revelations revealed in episode 2, as you find Bigby and Snow tracking down a potential suspect for the murders and end up revealing a much deeper story as new plot threads are revealed.
The game lets you choose how you want to play and each decision ultimately determines long term consequences that can either help you or hinder you. The Wolf Among Us Episode 3 is a smart, brutal and emotional episode that pushes the story forward and fleshes out character development for nearly ever character introduced thus far. I for once can not wait until Episode 4.
