We’re big fans of what Telltale has been doing lately with adventure games like Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us. Our biggest gripe about the latter was that it stopped right in the middle of things. Good for us, then, that Episode 2 is just around the corner. It hits the App Store next week, but you can watch the trailer below right now. (Be aware that it’s NSFW.)
The Wolf Among Us is based on Vertigo’s comic book series Fables, where fairy tales are real (and have a lot more cursing than the ones we read to children). Fairy tale characters have been banished from their fantastical lands and have set up shop in New York City. The game’s second episode is called “Smoke & Mirrors,” and it picks up right where the first one left off.
To play the second episode, just download the first one, and look for episode 2 to become available as a $4.99 in-app purchase next week.
Telltale has also released an “Exploring the World of Fables” video that goes into the background of the game and the comics it’s based on.
