Fables Video Game Won’t Use the Name Fables

It was announced almost two years ago that Telltale Games (makers of The Walking Dead video game) will be creating an interactive-adventure game based on the acclaimed Vertigo property Fables. Since that time, there have been almost no announcements for the game and many fans have feared the worst. But fear not, in an interview with IGN, Telltale CEO and co-founder Dan Connors spoke about the game and its delay.

“We won’t be using the name Fables. We’re based on the property, but we’ll have a new name. We haven’t announced it yet. We’re still hammering it out. We want to make sure that people know it’s associated with the DC comic and Bill’s work and everything else. It’s delicate. But it won’t be called Fables. With Fables, or the game associated with the comic Fables, it kind of… Walking Dead has had a huge impact on the company as far as how we look at things and how we do what we do. We’re taking a lot of what we learned from that and making sure that Fables can execute on the same things. That’s taking longer. But we’re definitely in full production on it. We’re working hard. It’s coming together really well. We’ll probably have more to talk about on it pretty soon, with a name and everything else, in the near future.”

Fables imagines that all the characters from the world’s most beloved storybooks are real—real, and living among us, with all of their powers intact. From Snow White and the Big Bad Wolf, to Goldilocks and Little Boy Blue, these beloved characters are alive and well—but they’ve been exiled from the land of fairy tales. Escaping the mysterious Adversary, they have relocated to a magically camouflaged New York City neighborhood known as Fabletown. To survive in the mundane world, the Fables will have to fight for their happily ever after.
