Based on the comic series from DC Comics' Vertigo imprint, The Wolf Among Us draws its characters from well-known fairy tales and fables, reinterpreting them with a modern twist.

Gamers are cast as Bigby Wolf, who has been exiled to New York City and must keep fairytale characters like Mr. Toad and the Three Little Pigs from being detected.

The game is in development for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and Mac. It is not clear how many episodes the series will span. By comparison, the first season of The Walking Dead was spread across five chapters.

Telltale is also working on a second season for The Walking Dead, which is expected to debut later this year, though the developer teased new content may arrive before then.
