I like how The Wolf Among Us keeps me comfortably curious. While curiosity can be very dangerous for a character in a game like The Walking Dead, we are literally tasked with solving a mystery playing as the big bad Wolf in a world where Aesop’s Fables live in our reality. Now throw in some preconceptions based on similar fables from our childhood, and then add the violent and mature themes from the Fables comic books by DC / Vertigo Comics. Now this is a world where I would be more curious than cautious.
I’ve been meaning to get around to playing this game for a while. Telltale Games released The Wolf Among Us (2013) about a year after their critically acclaimed The Walking Dead (2012) adventure game. So they had a pretty good template to use for creating a “gritty, violent and mature thriller based on the award-winning Fables (2002) comic books ( DC Comics / Vertigo ).”
I was originally going to find another game to play today. Then I saw that Invisible, Inc. is currently on sale for 75% OFF through Monday (June 18 at 10am Pacific Time) on Steam for their Klei Entertainment Weekend Sale. So I thought I would go ahead and share another night of gameplay. This way anyone who found this game even remotely entertaining to watch can have the opportunity to try the game for themselves for a fraction of the price.
