About the Game

The game is a first person Gothic action adventure game set in the medieval kingdom of Uhorsko. You play Dominik, a young alchemist summoned to protect the kingdom from a ravenous beast. Dominik's goals soon change as he discovers he has been bitten, and cursed to become the very thing he has set out to stop.

Now you Dominik must delve further into a dark castle in search of a cure, and cold answers to the enigma he finds himself entangled in along the way. Playing as Dominik’s human and werewolf form you smoothly switch between human and werewolf to solve puzzles, smash obstacles and proceed on his epic adventure.

The game is a combination of action and adventure gameplay elements. As a werewolf you use your powers to fight and smash obstacles. As a human you employ stealth tactics such as hiding and stealing items from castle inhabitants.

This game is terrible.

It's horrifically buggy. You can glitch through most "solid" objects in the game which sometimes breaks the game. The character models all look like they came out of 1998. A stealth system is entirely falsely advertised, as there are no stealth mechanics whatsoever. Much of the voice acting is horrifically bad.
Please, don't get this game.

Here's a video on it :D

Let me start by saying that the developers should be ashamed of themselves for this project. (except the music artists... they did good.) In no way shape form or fashion at the final stages of development should you all have said, "Yeah, game looks good, ship it out." Were you rushed? Were you strapped financially? Those questions are irrelevant. After a project like this your company should just fold, hand in the towel, and send its employee's elsewhere to find better career opportunities. This game is TERRIBLE.

Now to the meat and potatoes, so we can figure out why its bad. (I am not even going to give a warning for spoilers, because I think everyone who bought this should fight steam and have them refund their purchase. Anyone who has not bought it.. DON'T!)

I played this game for 2 hours and 54 minutes (approximately) that is from start to finish. The opening of the game gives you no indicator that the story is even actually happening beyond the main character saying that he needs to go someplace and find someone. It starts you off in a fashion that someone made a level in unreal tournement where you spawn in a location with no intro. There should have at least been a cutscene introduction on par with the ending cutscene of the game. (don't get me started on the quality of the ending cutscene, but at least a cutscene to explain what is going on is nessesary!!!)

With no true direction (or clue) to where to find your current target objective (due to a lack in informative begining), you might decide to follow the blood trail to a horse. Thats it for the clues beyond that. You are then greeted with the option to head for the gates, only to be told that you are missing something. now with no sense of injury or purpose, you then are left to wander the cold wilderness in an attempt to find the corpse of a character that is literally meaningless to the plot due to no introduction or other such information.

You are then greeted with yet another way the game decides to illustrate story. By walking up to the gate, it immediately warps you to a bed chamber and a talk to a literal stick of a human being. The characters that ARE present in the game, are emotionless and look like they are incredibly dated (probably inspired by 2001 time period character models) HELL THATS BEING GENEROUS!

Regardless, the options are bland, they don't have any apparant meaning for either selection of choice, and the voices seem remarkably quiet and uninspired. And this is constant through the game, when you actually do get choices for dialogue.

The game play is dated, adventure games have come along way since this rustic example of old school room escape games. (even in those games, the items you used to solve the puzzles disappeared out of your inventory.) Instead, the items you collect kinda serve to guide you as a gauge for how much longer you have to suffer through the game.

The tutorial consists of a help file that opens from the options, or in the start of the game. And even that tutorial does not actually explain some of the mechanics of the game (LIKE THE STEALING MECHANIC!) Its ambiguous, and not intuitive. There should have been a small, subtle example of each mechanic as the game introduces them to you, but it never does explain anything in the game. It doesn't even have a story that really truely explains what exactly is going on.

The story is there, but its vague, and rarely seen. The journal entry literally gives a hint as to your next direction, and that is your only motivation to do much of anything. Its rediculous.

The stealth mechanics are terrible. There are two spaces in the game where you are actually supposed to hide from the crappy looking werewolf. TWO. And one of the doesn't work. Those two specific instances don't even really add to the tense atmosphere that was supposed to be there. one of them was out right broken, and I ended up solving the area, by grabbing the cog, and dying only to appear back at the ladder with the cog in my inventory. The stealing in the game is effortless and in general unessesary outside of two times due to the lack of need for anymore than 200 gold pieces. You only need to steal a minimum of 3 times. And when you do need to steal, there is no indicator as to where and who you need to steal from. Good luck guessing on a first playthrough.

There is no sneaking in the game. There is no descernable combat in the game. There are very small amounts of platforming, and the puzzles are actually few and far in between. Its mostly collection oriented situations. "Man I would like an apple." - go get apple- "Thanks, here is a key to the door to continue the game." - rinse and repeat.

The music, is good. The music is actually well done, and probably the only thing worth-while in this game. After this dev team is disolved I hope that the music artist will get a job somewhere else.

The end cutscene in the game looks and runs like a damn story board. The art is half ♥♥♥♥♥ because it looks genuinely un finished. If you ever watch a story boarding session for disney or something, you will see how this cutscene runs. Its insulting.

I paraphrased alot of what the issues are with the game. And if you realy want to see how bad it is, then check out my youtube channel for the whole playthrough of the game. In closing, the game is not worth a penny, its clearly an early alpha build at best. I spent some of my time trying to figure out how to unlock myself from the terrain I clipped through, or figuring out how to get back into the level after moving through it. Bad game is bad, and this one is just terrible. Not worth the time, not worth the money, and a disappointing addition to the ever small selection of werewolf titles.

Devs, you asked me to play the demo for you, and you got my hopes up, and you got me excited. I jumped in to green light this game, I spoke highly of it for you people. And then you do me this. I am sorry for sounding brutal, but I am honest. You mislead anyone that believes your description of the game. Half of the description for the game in the steam advertisement section, is either pulling for strings in an effort to sell the game to folks, or outright lying. This game is terrible, and I am not happy that I jumped and spent money on this title. Anyone that bought it, needs to go and demand steam refund the purchase.

If you are one of the two people (at the time of this review) who gave this game a thumbs up (despite the 4/10 from one of you), you should come chat with me so I can show you some actual good games to play to put this game into some perspective. That or I would be lead to believe that you were paid to give your shallow praises for the game.

Bad show devs... bad show. I want my money back. I would suggest you either take this game off the steam roster, or drop the price to free to play. This is (at the time of this review) a 15 dollar purchase. I expect much more from you guys if you are going to charge this much.

This game was an absolute MESS. After the initial... I hesitate to call it a quest because it wasn't, you'd be forgiven for thinking that the game was broken as the key to moving forward (I hesitate to call it a puzzle) relies on a mechanic that the game never really tells you exists. There aren't really any puzzles, certainly none that couldn't be solved by applying a solitary brain cell to them. The only challenging part to this game is finding all the things necessary to complete missions, and that's not a good kind of challenge. It's one that frustratingly made me stay up until four in the morning playing because I wanted to see if it redeemed itself in the end and I knew I wouldn't have the willpower to start it up again if I shut it off. The combat is wholly unnecessary, as you can quite blithely run straight past the guards who are too slow to swing to really do any damage to you and not only don't chase you, if you transform right in front of their bloody eyes and then leave the room and come back, they have apparently FORGOTTEN that the alchemist they're talking to just transformed into an unholy beast right in front of their eyes, making them utterly superfluous. Not helped is the fact that their dialogue (And pretty much everybody elses) is completely phoned in on the part of the voice actors. There are only four characters in this game, counting yourself, and two of them have a whopping THREE LINES, and yet we're supposed to care about them. Oh, and that monster they're always touting? Seen three times in the game. You see it, it chases you, you hide or cut off its path, and then it just gives up IMMEDIATELY. I regret this purchase. I sincerely, sincerely regret it.

At first, the atmosphere seemed to be very immersive, but soon you are faced with terrible character models and awful dialogues, which kinda break it. The story is quite interesting, although simple. The game is pretty confusing too. Lots of times it gives no clues as to what you have to do, and sometimes you have to do some pretty weird stuff, like hanging an amulet on a random statue, or pickpocketing a key without even being told you can pickpocket. I am a huge fan of werewolf related stuff, which is why I bought this, but I was rather disappointed. Overall it isn´t terrible, but it feels a lot like a test or early access game, so with a few updates it could become pretty decent, since the main idea and settings are great.
