The Wolf Among Us 2
Genre: Adventure game, interactive movie
After 3 years from the last chapter in first The Wolf Among Us season of this wonderful game, we can finally start waiting for the second one! We might even get the first chapter as soon as next year, in 2018! I cannot believe this, because I no longer expected it. There’s comics that follow the fable stories, and while I have not read them, thou I plan to, the mere existence of theirs is what made me think there’s no reason to expect a second game. I am so very happy I was mistaken!
In a neon-drowned noir type of detective story, a world where humans are called “mundanes“, live people from the fables. The real ones, the dark, gruesome, and scary. These are not your Disney characters. Some of these people barely escaped death, hunted by monsters, witches, or their own parents, or step-parents, as often happens. Princes, and princesses aren’t much happy having to learn to be salesmen, waiters, cashiers, be unable to afford the lavish lifestyle they used to have. They feel like they deserve more for what they were. Much like the regular folk feel they get too much as it is. Those who don’t look human – must buy charms to look human, or risk be taken to the farm, where beings who were either too big, too great to be made look human, or had too little conscious mind in them live. No one wants to get there. That place is a nightmare come true. Tension is steady at all times, and so, while we already solved the mystery of dying prostitutes in the first season, I’m sure there’s no end to bad things that might happen here still.
