Games Like The Wolf Among Us

If you love games focused on engaging you in an exciting plot full of great writing, then games like The Wolf Among Us are adventures you’ll definitely like.

In this canonical prequel to the Fables comic book series you play as the sheriff of Fabletown, Bigby Wolf. This city is not what it seems, as it features a diverse cast of characters inspired by fairy tales and is plagued with crime and danger.

With a dark and great art style, you explore various environments and search for clues to help you solve a brutal murder. How you converse with the inhabitants of Fabletown also affects their opinion of you, allowing you to shape your protagonist to be the kind of character you want him to be.
