"An unpopular theme handled in a relentless and unforgiving manner, a wild game slotted in amongst the polite, the ingratiating, the over-produced."

About This Game

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...

This is a great tower defense of our generation! Great story, the humor in the game, the gameplay. Even the support for those at the highest level, I wrote to them on Facebook, they kindly responded and helped advice on how to beat the game. 10 out of 10, just turn 1 video, and all understand themselves =)

Это великолепная защита башни нашего поколения! Великолепный сюжет, юмор в игре, гемплей. Даже тех поддерка на самом высоком уровне, я писал им в фейсбуке, они любезно ответили и помогли советом, как пройти игру. 10 из 10, просто включите 1 ролик, и все поймёте сами =)

Awesome game. As it says, it combines action and strategy in a unique way. You can’t only rely on your combat skills and you would have to think carefully where to put your traps and timing is important because many of them needs you to be triggered. You will have to repeat some missions and think a different plan. And that’s what make this game a great one, you will be looking forward to doing it! I am usually discouraged to repeat a map in other games, but this game have a pretty solid strategy involved so you would love to give it a twist to your previous plan.

And finally, the soundtrack it’s so good that I have to point it out!

If you like tower defense games and puzzles this one will definitely please you

Good puzzles.
Very interesting game.
Fun to plan your defenses during the days, and see how your strategy works at nights.

The plot is also good and most of the characters are nice.

The only thing that actually bothered me was the animation durning the cut scenes, I guess, becouse the characters are to limited, the animation itself gets awkward during these events.

I'd like to see more of this in the future for sure

cheers

Good game, fun mix between action and strategy. The graphics are fine, the cutscene animation is a bit goofy, the english voiceover is fine. Has replay-value in my opinion if you start at the easier of two difficulty settings. I personally didn't have any technical issues (Windows 8).

This is a tower defense game where you don't have much resources. You can't just spam the map with traps, you have to be careful where do you lay what kind of traps. There is a bit too much handholding at the beginning (the first two days are tutorials telling you what icons to click) and there aren't too many levels in the game, but they're just enough for me to have fun and not to feel cheated. Surviving a level with three or four waves can be very satisfying.

The gameplay and the theme mesh superbly and the story seems to me selfconscious about the subject matter (werewolves). The world of Sang-Froid mixes clichés of Christian and native American folklore as seen in movies and read in books. It's shlock, but luckily it doesn't try to be more than shlock, it's very entertaining.
