Great news gamers, IGN has named Telltale Game’s ‘The Wolf Among Us’ its Free Game of the Month. We named the game one of our ‘Apps of the Week‘ for the iPhone and iPad back in February, and it normally retails for $4.99.

For those unfamiliar with the title, The Wolf Among Us is a violent, mature thriller based on the award-winning Fables comic books. It’s made by the same team behind The Walking Dead, and features similar gameplay mechanics…

Here’s a brief overview of the game:

As Bigby Wolf – THE big bad wolf – you will discover that a brutal, bloody murder is just a taste of things to come in a game series where your every decision can have enormous consequences. 

An evolution of Telltale’s ground-breaking choice and consequence game mechanics will ensure the player learns that even as Bigby Wolf, Sheriff of Fabletown, life in the big bad city is bloody, terrifying and dangerous. 

Like the Walking Dead, the story of The Wolf Among Us is told across multiple episodes. Episode 1 is included with the original game, but after that you’ll pay $4.99 per episode (unless you opt for the 2-5 pack, which gives you a 25% discount).

Here’s a video of what gameplay is like:

Even if games like this aren’t normally your cup of tea, I recommend grabbing it. Both the production value and gameplay mechanics are very impressive, and you just never know what you’ll be into in the future. Plus it’s hard to argue with free.
