Telltale's Fables Is Now Called The Wolf Among Us

The Wolf Among Us, Telltale's game based on Bill Willingham's Fables comics has been revealed. It is a prequel to the comics, and will be in canon with them. It follows Fables' Big Bad Wolf, Bigby Wolf, who is sheriff of a secret hidden community in New York City that protects characters who have been exiled from fairy tales. Bigby Wolf must protect those fairy tale characters, including a chain smoking member of the Three Little Pigs and a car stealing Mr. Toad. It will be released for Windows, Mac, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 this summer.

Also, The Key Party is a teaser website for Telltale's upcoming Poker Night 2, which like the original will feature characters crossing over from different franchises in order to play a game of poker together. The keys revealed have been DeSoto keys for Sam from Sam & Max, the big knife for Brock Samson from Venture Bros., the Necronomicon for Ash from Evil Dead, Claptrap's eye from Borderlands 2, and a companion cube for GLaDOS from Portal (the latter two being in the game instead of Handsome Jack and Chell as previously assumed).
