Note: This post was scheduled for Halloween Day when the release was going to be October 31st but I'm rescheduling it for the NEW release day - today - October 11th. :)
Scheduled for 12:00am today,
For the gamers among us, here's some playing-specific details you may be interested in. From an interview with the creators by gameranx:
|Bigby showing some of his Big Bad side|
from the original graphic novel
featuring more of Bigby's story
Fables: Werewolves of the Heartland
Herman: Well you play as Bigby Wolf who is the Big Bad Wolf. He is just a different character, a different guy, and he comes from being the bad guy and now he is sort of in charge of keeping the town safe and protecting the fables. He brings his own personality to the story.
Lenart: Like you were saying, the comedy element is another element that excited us about it [Fables]. With The Walking Dead, working on that for so long, it's such a grave world and every situation is so terrible. With the Wolf Among Us it's nice because you're playing in this world and it's fantastical with bright moments and colors. It works with the narrative.
Goodman: Exactly. It didn't feel out of place at all.
Dingman: And you guys have one writer working on this? That's different from The Walking Dead, which had one person writing each episode, right?
Lenart: We're going to be doing a five episode season, so there will be different writers on different episodes.
Dingman: And will the episodes be released monthly?
Lenart: Nothing is confirmed yet, but it's going to be similar to what we did with The Walking Dead. Each one has a similar kind of feel, when it gets published it can be played in a night. It'll be coming out for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. We will have season passes for it.
Goodman: Once the season is complete will there be a hard disc release as well?
Herman: We have nothing hard right now, but I'm sure there will be.
Lenart: We always try to do that. We always want to get out on as many platforms as possible.
PS Happy (Early) Halloween!!
