The Wolf Among Us dev diary delves into a world where fables are real

A new behind-the-scenes video for Telltale Games' The Wolf Among Us examines the protagonist Bigby and the world in which he lives.

Fabletown is a section of New York City separated from the "mundane" world where fairy tale characters take refuge after being exiled from their homelands. In the old world, Bigby Wolf was the Big Bad Wolf; he preyed on and even ate other fables. Here, he tries to put his past behind him and serve as the sheriff of Fabletown, someone who can protect the fables who can't turn to the regular police.

Part of The Wolf Among Us involves dealing with Bigby's binary nature, say the developers; when does the player choose to let Bigby's inner wolf come out?

In Polygon's review of the first part of The Wolf Among Us, we found that it was an ambitious title that promised more than it could deliver in the first installment. The game launched for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Windows PC and Mac in October and hits iOS devices worldwide today.
