About the 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...

"A great and unique trap-based spin on the tower-defense genre" is the best way I can sum up Sang-Froid with.

What does it have going for it?
- Two characters to choose from.
- Character development, both in terms of equipment and skills.
- Good enemy variety, which will force you to adapt and evolve your strategies.
- An interesting story.
- A compelling artstyle.
- Catchy "folk" soundtrack.


What could be better?
- The fighting system variety, which could be better.
- Performance, which weren't great on my system, but still good enough to beat the game two times.
- The English voice acting for some of the characters (the best voice is definitely the Devil's, though!)
- The experience system, which is pretty basic in what it does while it could be much more.
- The weapons system, which could use less straightforward upgrades and more sidegrades to choose from (similarly to the trinkets, where you only have 3 slots but have multiple useful things to choose in between).


Overall, aside these minor issues, Sang-Froid is an absolutely entertaining game, deserving to be played at least once per character to experience both difficulties provided... and to prepare yourself for Tome II.

I've never played anything quite like Sang-Froid before and I'm sure you haven't either. If you took lumberjacks and werewolves and threw them in a blender with Rainbow Six's careful planning (and executing of said plans), the frenetic and intense last stand dynamics and overwhelming sense of impending doom of the movie Zulu, and a hearty glug of Canadian folklore, you'd be getting close to what Sang-Froid is all about. It's unique, refreshing, clever, thrilling, gorgeous and has a fantastic folk soundtrack to boot. One of my games of the year without a doubt.

Strategic planning by day ( similar to Orcs Must Die 1 ). Intense, guerrilla, Werewolf combat, like the movie Underworld (2003) by night. The game is a must-buy, if you are looking for innovation. I love the music and art direction.

A refreshing take on tower defense strategy with with a supernatural theme. Nice musical scoring, sound effects and a decent albeit simplistic storyline makes it more believable and immersive. It's quite addictive once you get into it. It's kinda short but I think has some decent replay value as the game's many traps, weapon types, magical artifacts and terrain based tactics provide for alot of flexibility and different approaches to progressing through the levels. There is also of course a fairly typical multi-branch skill tree that lets you develop your style however you want.

You basically plan your strategy and setup your traps during the day and then execute it at night, the object being to survive and make it to the next night, which progressively gets more difficult. There are many areas of the map that need defending, so careful planning, timing and execution are essential. And the devs of course left the ending wide open for a sequel which I can say I'm looking forward to. Definitely worth picking up on sale.

A unique game that blends the tower defence and action genres in a very clever way. You play the part of one of the legendary O'Carroll brothers, trying to defend yourself and your sister from various evil creatures of the night, like possesed wolves, werewolves and some mythical beings refered to as the Maikans. To help you with this task, you have an axe for close combat and a rifle for ranged. Still, your weapons will not be enough, as your enemies are stronger and greater in numbers. That's where strategy comes into use. During the day, evil sleeps, so it's your chance to place traps in the forest. When night comes, those decisions will either save you or lead you to your doom.
The graphics are okay (they look a bit outdated at times though), the sound effects and music are great and the gameplay is very challenging and rewarding; the game's strongest point. Seriously, don't miss this game. Thumbs up, all the way!
