IMG Reviews The Wolf Among Us
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games' Steven Marx has posted a new review of Telltale Games' The Wolf Among Us. Based on Bill Willingham's award-winning comic book series FABLES and licensed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, The Wolf Among Us features a cast of fairy tale characters struggling to survive in the dangerous Fabletown.

Here's an excerpt:

While it may be true that you can play through each episode in an hour or two, that shouldn’t be compared to a shooter where you might spend several hours mindlessly blowing things up. Rather you should think of it more as spending an hour or two with a good book, one where you get to participate and affect the outcome. In this sense, the game is well-crafted, with each episode telling a self-contained part of the story, taking what happened before into account and leading you nicely into the next part. Some episodes end with cliff-hangers, others simply with a logical break in the action, but they all have you ready to start the next episode to see what happens next.

6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Winter Wolves recently announced the release of Tales of Aravorn: Seasons of the Wolf. Set in the same world as Loren The Amazon Princess, the fantasy RPG gives players the chance to take the role of Shea or Althea, twins from the village of Ninim, who embark on an epic quest after befriending a wolf.

In this role-playing game, set in the same fantasy world as the award-winning Loren the Amazon princess, you'll play as Shea or Althea, twins from the far-away village Ninim. In just the course of one year, you will experience many storylines and sidequests; situations and events where your own choices influence the very end of the game.

Travel alongside your old friend the ex-mercenary Vaelis, the illusionist Riley, the barbarian Krimm, the assassin Chalassa, the bard Jariel, and last, but not least, the crazy--ahem, the warlock Rowinda! As your relationships deepen, you may discover love with one of your companions. As you spend time together, you will find yourself influencing their very own storylines!

The game features 9 different classes, each with its own set of skills. With every level up, choose your attributes, each one having an impact on future battles. Fight a large variety of enemies in turn-based tactical battles and loot randomized items for a different game every time!

Those familiar with the Loren battle system will notice many changes, big and small, that make the battles more challenging. The view is now left to right, featuring bigger sprites both of your party and your enemies!

The largest improvement is the new isometric map! Divided into several zones, this gives the player a greater sense of immersion, and freedom of exploration. Discover all the locations and quests in each Season to earn additional experience.

As always, there are romances available for all tastes, both straight or homosexual.

The story, divided into four acts, or Seasons, will leave you wondering what happens next. But remember, no matter what happens, the theme of the story is 'Deceit'.

Tales Of Aravorn: Seasons Of The Wolf is available to purchase now for Mac, Windows, and Linux PCs, with a the free demo available at the website. Mobile and Steam releases are planned for early 2015.
