Episodic adventure game developers Telltale Games are clearly pretty happy about how well their Walking Dead titles are being received, because they’ve recently confirmed they’re developing games based on another grownups-only comic book series — the long-running Vertigo series Fables. Telltale quietly announced its Fables games early last year, but we haven’t heard much about them since. Thankfully this re-announcement confirms the project is still very much in the works.
Fables, created by Bill Willingham, takes place in a world where the characters from fairytales and folklore are real. Most of these magical characters and creatures have been expelled from their homelands, and thus they establish a secret community in New York City. Basically it’s pretty much the perfect high concept for an adventure game, and after the great reviews for Telltale’s Walking Dead games, I’m totally jazzed for this.
Hopefully this is just the start of the Telltale/Vertigo collaborations. I’d love to see a Hellblazer adventure game, or Sweet Tooth, or holy s–t, what about Sandman? Or Preacher? So many possibilities. What Vertigo series would you guys like to see get the episodic adventure game treatment?
