Just passing the story’s halfway point with this latest episode, A Crooked Mile sees a number of major developments take place in the The Wolf Among Us. With many establishing points now covered and an impression of Fabletown’s social structure established, there is a definite push towards raising the stakes further.
Following directly on from where Episode 2 left off, Wolf has to contend with a ticking clock and developments which only deepen the mystery. Sticking to its guns with old-fashioned detective work in a fantastical world, the episode has the player following up leads. With a major plot element from past stories violently removed and a character now fleeing town, the addition of a ticking clock only enhances the sense of desperation. It gives a much greater sense of purpose and makes the game feel as if it is truly progressing towards something.
