Oh, woe are we!
Telltale’s follow up to hit adventure game The Walking Dead has been delayed for Mac, due to “an unforeseen issue with the Mac version of Episode 1,” whatever that means. The Wolf Among Us is an episode-based adaptation of Vetigo’s Fable, a graphic novel set in the real world with mythical fairy tale creatures like Snow White, Jack Frost, Pinocchio, and–of course–the Big Bad Wolf.
The game publisher updated its original blog post announcement of the October 11 release to say that it “is working on an update right now and expect to have the Mac build live on Steam and the Telltale website within the next few days.”
You can still purchase the Windows version via Steam, grabbing the five-episode season pass for $24.99, or from Telltale’s own website for the same price. The game is also available on Xbox 360 for approximately $20. If you’re a PlayStation gamer, you’ll have to wait until October 15 to even download the first episode at all.
The first episode of The Wolf Among Us, “Faith,” is getting good reviews on the net at this time, with a solid 84 on Metacritic, a game review score aggregator.
