The Basics

The Wolf Among Us: Episode 3 - A Crooked Mile

 

Interacting with Characters

  • ·Much of The Wolf Among Us is relayed through story scenes, but occasionally your direct input is needed. Items and people of note are marked with a circle. When you hover over a circle, you’re given options on how to interact with that person/item.
  • ·Dialogue trees are an important mechanic in The Wolf Among Us. When you’re presented with choices on how to respond to characters or situations, the game makes note of your selection. Your behavior can help you (or haunt you) later in the story. If you don’t know what to say, silence is almost always an option.
  • ·The Wolf Among Us has several “quick time events,” which require you to quickly input on-screen commands. Failing to complete a quick time event adequately can potentially result in a Game Over.
