Acerca de este juego

Combining action and strategy in a unique way, Sang-Froid: Tales of Werewolves transports you into an epic folktale co-written with best-selling Canadian author Bryan Perro (Amos Daragon, Wariwulf), in which two feuding brothers will have to put aside their differences to save their sister, who is pursued by the Devil himself!

This time however, sheer brute strength won't be enough to save the day as your enemies are way stronger than you are. Only your wits and the ability to combine ingenious traps to setup deadly ambushes will give you a chance to see the sun rise again on your frozen piece of forest...

Key Features

  • Plan your strategy! – Take advantage of the calm during the day to fill your forest with all kinds of traps that are as inventive as they are deadly.
  • Hunt your enemies! – When night falls, use the wind and lure the diabolic beasts into your traps using bait... But watch out! You have to be on constant guard to make sure you don't become the prey of the beasts you are tracking!
  • Fight heroically! – If some of the beasts get past your traps, that's when it gets bloody! First you can shoot them with your trusty musket and then eliminate the ones that survive by slaughtering them with your axe! Action and carnage guaranteed!
  • Use fear to your advantage! – All the mechanics of the game revolve around the innovative concept of Fear Factor, which makes your ability to intimidate your enemy your best weapon. For example, use fire to frighten the wolves and scatter their packs.
  • Customize your character! – Choose one of the two O'Carroll brothers and develop your character using a skill system based on role-playing games (RPGs), making your hero as unique as he is powerful!
  • Discover a rich universe! – Immerse yourself in 19th century Canada where legends meet History in a world filled with lore and wonders. Buy historical weapons and items, fight mythical beasts and uncover the truth about werewolves...

Interesting and novel gameplay, but bad execution. The game has a terrible load time and stutters on older machines, that should be able to handle such low-end graphics.

There are probably too many games that take place in America to count nowadays, sometimes having it be just a setting, others making silly or outlandish portrayals of what life in the US of A is like. But that means other countries don't appear as often, particularly their neighbour to the north and my home country, Canada. Heck, we don't even have our own hero in Overwatch yet! So I was interested in playing Sang-Froid, since I heard it described a bunch in this thread as just about the most Canadian thing ever. Is it?

Well, the story goes like this: it's Klondike-era Canada, and lumberjack Joseph and his sister Josephine have been run out of their town thanks to the priest blaming the local church burning down on her. This forces them to shack up with their brother Jacques, who Joseph is none-too fond of, and the feeling is mutual. There's not much time to think about that, though, as it turns out this priest has been bewitched by the Devil, who is corrupting the townspeople into werewolves and sending them to try and spirit their sister away for unknown reasons. Since they both care for her more than they dislike the other, it's time to kill some werewolves.

Much like Orcs Must Die, you participate in the defense firsthand. You can play as either Joseph, who is quite physically fit and capable of fighting off enemies better, or Jacques, who is more of a hard mode where you need to rely on traps. Of course, the extensive skill tree is the same for both, as is most of the story, save some scenes where they're alone. It's probably inaccurate to compare this to Orcs Must Die, though, as Sang-Froid is more slow-paced and strategic.

The story takes place from the fifth of December all the way to Christmas Eve, and as each day dawns you're able to go to town to buy items, equip your character, and of course lay traps for the werewolves at night. Each level has three waves, with the enemies in them almost always going for different targets; you'll have up to five buildings to defend by the end of the game. Thankfully just clicking on an enemy's icon will show you the exact path they'll take once they show up, barring distractions.

If that sounds a bit easy, it isn't, as your arsenal is nowhere near autonomous. The only no frills weapon you have is the starting bear trap, which will kill a common wolf, but barely slow a werewolf down without picking skills to power it up. Most others you have to activate yourself or have some requirement before they'll trigger, like a net you need to shoot down with your rifle (which, being a nineteenth century firearm, you'd better not miss with), or a spike trap that will only trigger if three enemies are on it at once, which often requires luring them with bait or your scent. Engaging enemies yourself is tricky too, since there's a stamina system in place to keep you from swinging mindlessly, and most of them have a resistance to ordinary weapons; you'll need to pay to have them blessed if you want to get around that.

All this means you generally need to go through the waves and prepare traps for each set of enemies, perhaps deciding which you can deal with yourself safely. The next wave doesn't come until everything from the previous one is dead, and it gives you enough time to move across the map if you need to, especially later on when you unlock watch-towers you can zipline between. If you screw up, the game lets you restart at either dawn, to place traps differently, or at twilight, if you made some misstep in execution. It's definitely not the kind of game where you can sit and watch as things march to their doom, but there was something about setting things up and watching - or listening - to it all go right.

I beat the game in nine hour as Joseph, and enjoyed myself a lot more than I expected going in. I'd say it's a bit of a hidden gem, although it has been on sale quite a lot at this point. I'd thoroughly recommend it so long as Canadian accents don't make you recoil in horror. Last I checked the developers were still planning on making a part two to the game, and I hope they do if it's as good.

Well... I had a feeling this game would be great. But it was not exactly what I was expecting.

It's about picking from a tech tree and setting up traps according to your preference in a world map, followed by an action sequence, where, when the werewolves and demons don't die on your useless traps, you end up getting drunk so you can fight them off, *hic* to save your hot sister *hic* from all these wolves. *hic* Damn it's cold here. *hic* Good music tho.

Love this game a lot!

The soundtrack is beautiful, fits the game perfectly.
The characters are great.
Storyline is enjoyable.
Skills and weapons are spot on.
Enemies get progressively harder to beat!

The only cons I have are the graphics for my computer. They appear to be broken, the ground is messed up, tree textures.. Everything. But still, great game all around.

Wasn't too excited to play this, but once I've started, I couldn't stop! Great game, a lot of fun, replayable (somewhat), the only thing I'd ask for is co-op.

A great marriage of action and strategy (mostly tower defense) with excellent music and an adequate and well executed story. It invests just enough into characters and even succeeds in making you care for them, which is very rare for a mostly strategy game. The art style is not quite unique, but the whole ensemble definitely is. A true gem.

Linear and maticulous. Not many options for creativity. There is one "best" solution according to the game and the obstacles that are thrown at you. The graphics in the story segment scenes are horrendous.

Se trata de un juego de estrategia con una parte de acción y un punto de rpg por aquello de ir subiendo las habilidades del personaje con los puntos de experienza adquiridos. La parte de estrategia está bastante bien lograda, ya que cada trampa sirve apara unos atacantes determinados y las combinaciones son multiples de cara a reepeler los ataques, lo que hace que la solución no sea única y te da cierta libertad para resolver las situaciones dependiendo de tus gustos.
La parte de acción corresponde a cuando ya tenemos toda la estrategia montada y empiezan los ataques. Aunque es importante, depende completamente de la estrategia que hayamos diseñado previamente. Es bastante exigente y complicado luchar contra los bichos ya que ellos no se cansan y tú sí.
Por último, tanto las habilidades que se adquieren en cada nivel como el dinero que te permite comprar equipamiento se dan en pequeñas cantidades, lo que mantiene la dificultad del juego. Está muy bien medido en ese sentido.
Lo peor del juego son sin duda las animaciones, que son un poco cutres, pero como el diseño de lso personajes ya es un poco de comic, pues acaba dando el pego. El resto del apartado gráfico es correcto y no he encontrado bugs.
Conclusión: Un juego muy entretenido con un claro dominante estratégico, que engancha y te invita a jugarlo sin prisas. Lo recomiendo.

Quizás el Tower Defense más original que he jugado. Ambientado en Canadá, armado con tu hacha y tu rifle, debes poner trampas de todo tipo para cazar lobos, hombres lobo y otras criaturas antes de que lleguen a alcanzar tus edificios. Acción en tercera persona y una jugabilidad interesante. Además, la música te transporta al escenario y aunque las animaciones son un poco de andar por casa, el arte es muy chulo. Los tutoriales son claros y tiene dos niveles de dificultad dependiendo del personaje que elijas para empezar la aventura. Recomendado.

Este es un juego impresionante, tanto en la idea como en el desarrollo, me parece todo un acierto. La parte mala es la falta de un editor de niveles, y tal vez la inclusion de un modo cooperativo.

Por otro lado, la historia te engancha, y la tematica tambien. La musica es impresionante, y la accion tambien. Podria jugarlo una y otra vez probando diferentes estilos de trampas y desarrollos de personaje.

Gran juego con la gran caracteristica de ser hasta original,basado en el norte de canada,historias de lobos y demonios en la nieve y oscuras noches.Tres hermanos y una historia.
Con una gran banda sonora,de tremenda calidad(recuerda a Yann Tiersen,supongo sera folklore frances)
En el juego hay q defenderse de los lobos y algunas que otras extrañas criaturas,trandras un rifle,un hacha y algunos movimientos especiales.tambien contaras con movimientos de intimidacion que hace que el juego aun se pueda sentir mas.Tambien podemos añadir trampas y pikas para contener a las criaturas.
Por lo unico q no reccomiendo este juego es por el precio.Si bajase a los 4 o 5€ seria una compra genial

"deramdadariraeraamdaridirarii" 7,5/10
