The Wolf Among Us was an episodic adventure game developed by Telltale Games based on Fables by Bill Willingham.
The first episode was released on October 11, 2013. The other four episodes were released in the following months.
The game features Bigby, Fables' big bad wolf, and has elements of the choice system from The Walking Dead where you decide whether Bigby protects the people you're with or if he gives in to his wolf side.
The fables that Bigby, the sheriff of the secret New York city community Fabletown, has to protect include a chain-smoking member of the Three Little Pigs and a thieving Mr. Toad.
In the first episode, "Faith", a fable is murdered. Snow White, the assistant to the deputy mayor, calls upon sheriff Bigby Wolf to investigate.
In the second episode, "Smoke & Mirrors", Bigby increases his investigation efforts, as the murderer has become a serial killer.
In the third case, "A Crooked Mile", Bigby's investigation takes an unexpected turn.
In the fourth case, "In Sheep's Clothing", Bigby's investigation continues and he encounters a strong fable he has never come up against.
In the fifth case, "Cry Wolf", Bigby's investigation concludes as he brings an end to the machinations of the mysterious Crooked Man.
It was originally going to be a puzzle adventure game project led by Michael Stemmle, but after the success of The Walking Dead, it was changed to a choices and consequences adventure game co-directed by Nick Herman and Dennis Lenart, with Pierre Shorette as the lead writer.
