Actually, just recently became interested in QTE games, after playing Quantic Dream titles. So I was browsing for similar games and found this gem. I was delaying the play, as you can't really hop on a quick session and need at least an hour of free time to go deep into the story, otherwise you will quickly get lost in the situations, which get escalated surprisingly fast.

At first I thought the game is childish and I will end up catching some cats, but it turns out to be a serious detective for adults, which engages you in about 20 minutes of gameplay, when things are getting messy.

Highly recommend it for everyone, but you need to be fluent with English to play it.

Telltale reveals The Wolf Among Us 2

Review from Steam

The only bad thing about The Wolf Among Us is that we will NEVER get a sequel.
Edit: Now that we are getting a sequel there are officially no longer bad things about this game.

Review from Steam

One of the best story games in Steam. It was so good my friends sat around the computer watching me play it. It was like watching a really good movie except you are playing it. The story is so well done that you cannot help but to be engrossed in it. The visuals are amazing if you like a comic books which I do!! Some games have that cheesy voice acting but this game was top notch. It had just the right amount of everything for everybody. Script, score ... the whole shabang! INCREDIBLE!! You will be missing out on one fine game if you have not played it.
Wicked!!

Did you like "The Walking Dead" by the same studio? This game is for you.
Do you like mysteries, violent noir fiction, detectives and their atmoshere? This game is for you.
It does not have much to offer in terms of gameplay - being rather simple point and click detective in the core - but the visual design of this game is so beautiful (I have to say - this game has the best "comic" style cellshading application I've seen in games so far), music so soothing and alluring, characters and story so captivating that you will find yourself on a cliffhanger at the end of the first episode in no time, hungry for continuation.
There is little chance that Telltale will screw this one up, so you may as well buy it now. Or you can wait until all the episodes are out and play it in one go.

Review from Steam

A mature story that takes place in a noir setting, The Wolf Among Us is a gritty take on various fairytale characters that have somehow escaped into our world and secretly living among us. You assume the role of Bigby Wolf "The big bad wolf". The first episode of the story has you involved in solving a murder mystery that has the appearance of leading to something much bigger.
The game follows the Telltale forumula used with their Walking Dead games. A narrative-driven story where your decisions have some impact on the outcome of certain story elements. One significant and welcome change that was added to The Wolf Among Us is that not only do the choices you make impact the outcome, but also WHEN you make some of the choices. This means that you can be presented with a decision of what order to do things and the order you choose will change how the story flows. This new feature will add some amount of replayability to the game because of the significant changes in narrative that result from the order of certain decisions.
The artwork follows a comic book style similar to Telltale's The Walking Dead games and the music is very well done and sets the tone for the game. I also liked the feature where you unlock various "Book of Fables" entries as you play the game. These entries will allow you to read more about the lore of the various characters and their backgrounds as they pertain to this story.
I really enjoyed playing the first episode of this game and looking forward to what the future episodes will bring!

Update for the full game:
After finally following Bigby and Snow White trough all five episodes, i can happily confirm, that Telltale did once again a wonderful job in catching the atmosphere and even more importantly the characters of the comic.
You get sucked into the world of Fables, where well known Fable figures have to live in the human world, after escaping their home dimension, and you try as Sherriff Bigby Wolf (aka Big Bad Wolf) to not only solve a series of strange murders but also battle against your inner demons.
For fans of the comic it offers a very interesting pre-story to where the series begins and you meet and get to know some characters, which were only shortly in the comics.
The graphics style fits the shrill world of Fables and the voice acting is once again nearly without flaw.
Gameplay wise it is like the walking dead, more of an interactive movie than a true adventure, but it is done very well. Last but not least the music also fits perfectly.. from the well done intro with Bigby wandering through town up to the whole game, the "Film Noir" atmosphere is present everywhere.
As in any good of these detecive/Noir stories, it get´s rather dark and the borders between good and evil are easily shifted.

Review from Steam

"The Wolf Among Us" is a typical Telltale adventure game: a well-told story, cinematic presentation with excellent voice acting and highly stylized graphics, lots of choices that seem to have an impact on the story (but actually don't), annoying quick-time events that are meant to create an illusion of immediacy, and an outdated game engine that causes problems for some players (but thankfully worked fine for me). It's 100% what you would expect from a Telltale game at this point, they seem to stick to their formula almost religiously.
The reasons why I enjoyed TWAU more than other Telltale games, were the setting and the story. The setting is based on "The Fables", a series of graphic novels around fairy tale characters who had to flee their homeland, and now try to make a living incognito in Manhattan. I did not know the Fables before, and I liked how they put an interesting spin on characters that were otherwise done to death, and often pretty boring to begin with (especially in their sanitized, sugar-coated versions from the ever-popular Disney movies). The Fables are anything but sanitized. There is no clear line between "good" and "evil", many characters are disturbed or broken, and they all try to survive - often by desperate means - in a seedy environment far from home. Their stories tackle topics like murder, violence, blackmailing, dependency through debt, prostitution, suicide, drinking, and more.
One of my main complaints about Telltale games is that they rarely introduce me to new, exciting worlds. They usually just rehash franchises that everyone knows already. I don't really need the thirty-somethingth Batman game though, I'd rather discover and explore something fresh. And since I did not know The Fables before, TWAU provided that for me, and I enjoyed it a lot.
The plot of TWAU is at its heart a hard-boiled detective story. You play the "Big Bad Wolf" from the fairy tales, who has become a sheriff in the new world, and investigate a gruesome murder case that starts with a decapitation, but soon develops into things even more sinister. It is a well-designed crime mystery that kept me engaged and curious until the end.
If I have one complaint about TWAU, it's that - as usual, unfortunately - many of the choices are just illusions of such. They seem impactful during your first playthrough, but actually they just affect some minor plot points. You can play Bigby Wolf as a good-hearted cop trying to make up for his violent past by helping other Fables, or you can play him as a brutal killer who enjoys torturing people and does not care about the law - it won't change much apart from a few lines of dialogue. You do get a few meaningful choices towards the ending, at least. But while I do wish that the game had more meaningful choices, I still enjoyed it the way it is.
