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.

I love werewolf themed things. Thus, the reason I got this. The other reason I got it, was because I thought the artistic touch was well done. The art is unique and thoroughly different. Yes, poor dialogue and vagueness abound, but the art style just amazes me. If you can look beyond the annoying items, and just explore the style, you might find yourself enjoying the environment more than the game itrself.

I remember a time I paid $40 bucks for a game, that came with a free game. Turns out the free game was the only thing I played...so for the $7 or so bucks, it doesn't pain me too much and I at least get to explore the world.

I hope this company can make other games like this with better dialogue, map, and so forth.

I played the game and I Think it was excellent I loved the Art style. One Of the things that could be better is the Map and the voice acting could of been better but thay are the only things that I diden't like. I give this game a 8 out of 10.

Doesn't work on Windows 10.
Contacted the devs. They are aware of the problem but won't fix it before they earn enough money with the game to re-work it entirely. No workarounds.
If you plan of playing this later, or using windows 10, avoid it.

There are bad games and then there is pain like "Guise of the Wolf"...

Though the concept might seem quite appealing, the execution is extremely poor.
Guise of the Wolf contains several bugs (even almost two years after release) and annoys with a trivial and boring plot, bad textures and amateurish animations.

To me this game is like an unfinished school project and I'm really sorry I wasted money and time on it.

Guise of the Wolf is a first person puzzle game with a cell shaded aesthetic set in a medieval castle where you play as an alchemist tasked with defeating a werewolf. The twist becomes that you are stricken with lycanthropy and after dabbling in some potions, you unlock the ability to control yourself as a werewolf. Its a game that has charm enough to be playable despite being ripe with imperfections such as stiff animations, clipping through background objects, poor voice acting and seeing through the seems of objects just to name a few.

The bulk of the game, you're in a snowy castle that does a good job of detailing the look and making it convincing as a real place that someone could live in. There's a kitchen, a dungeon, a main hall, a courtyard and so on. The dungeon has bear traps set for the werewolf, so always look at the brown floor to see the rust colored traps. Stepping on one or any kind of death will restart you at the last frequent checkpoint.

There are a few characters to interact with. Some with instructions and other are there just to flesh out an area. They are voice acted and as wooden as the acting is, I'd rather hear it than read it. That's one of the game's issues, hearing the text. Even with the sound cranked up in the settings, the speech from person to person is inconsistent. Some are soft while others are clear.

You'll encounter the werewolf a few times where your only choice is to run. There are levers to pull that will spare your life when a gate comes crashing down to separate you. For a budget game, the werewolf's animation is serviceable, but its basic. Every animation is basic in the game, but at least the characters have moving mouths. Almost nothing else moves though. No one blinks, but they seem to breathe by slowly bobbing at the knees.

When you become a werewolf, you have the ability to dash and destroy objects like twenty stone statues or barricades. You can even maul citizens to death. To transform at key moments, simply stand in the moonlight for long enough until your character drops to the ground and his arms get longer, grow claws and hair. Its a basic system that lets you get to the next area. Your time as a werewolf is limited, the moon on your screen will time how much time you have left. Its a good mechanic.

The game is linear, but you'll still have to search around a bit to discover things like ingredients for a potion or a lever to open a door. You can even see your current objective in the inventory, but its never that far away. Its good if you take a long hiatus from the game.

The controls feel like a lot of other games, mouse to look, keys or controller to move. You have buttons and keys to interact, run, a pathetic jump, map, inventory and cancel. Its a game that is self explanatory that keeps you on point and task. It quarantines you in an area until you figure out how to progress. If you try to proceed without doing what you need to, the game will prevent you from leaving.

You'll need to look in your inventory, select them and find something to use them with such as giving an apple to a prisoner that could kill for an apple rather than saying, "Could I bother you for some food? You see no one has fed me in quite a while, in fact you are the first person I've seen in maybe a day." You'll need an item that breaks down weak doors and drop ingredients in a cauldron to make a potion.

The puzzles are never anything that cryptic and solving one will lead you to the next area in fact the game will often tell you what needs to be done and you figure out how to do it. There are switch puzzles, places where you'll need to mix a potion using a list. Just follow the instructions. You can even pick the locks on a treasure chest by clicking four switches to make four tumblers shift into position. Its a fluff mini game, but its still engaging at the same time.

As simple as these tasks are, there is a moment early on in the game where you need to realize that you're supposed to pick pocket a guard for the key. This is so cryptic and soon into the game that it can turn people away from the game forever. A different guard comically tells you no one is allowed to pass, but he'll let you pass for two hundred gold. Now go loot the castle. What? That's like having a bank tell you, sorry you don't have enough for an account, but if you rob us, you'd have enough.

I have to say the cell shading makes the game stand out in a good way. There are so many games without it, that just look awful. Its better to have something that looks unique and better than cheap. The torches and light affects do a lot to enhance the visuals as well, but upon closer inspection you can see faults with the art style. The black lines are drawn as objects rather than on the textures themselves. So if you put your nose up to something like a book or a bar, you can see black lines floating. One specific giant crack in the wall is just in front of the wall, so if you move, the crack will shift position on the wall. Its nothing game breaking, but its still noticeable.

Guise of the Wolf has a lot of noticeable faults. Walking through bushes and chests. When you click on something in the menu or your inventory, you need to move your mouse cursor off it in order to click it a second time. The fireplaces look tiny compared to the beds. Rather than pushing a door, its the handle you need to interact with, even if there is no handle. The alter in the church is up to your chin, as are some of the tables. Some barrels you can only click on their lower half from far away and last, it just looks funny seeing your hand as a cursor on a character's body parts.

Its two biggest sins are the cryptic pick pocket leads to frustration and its production values fall short. With better animation, the game would excel to its audience, but it still needs some hint that you can pick pocket. These are both things that could be fixed, along with the visual issues and the menu. There is a good game under all of this that people can still enjoy.

While I like the game its tough to recommend with all the hate it gets. I can overlook its faults, because they're all visual and it still manages to interesting to me. The problem is that a few years after the game's release and these minor issues never went away.

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.

I was hoping this game would be good. Unfortunately, I can not in good conscience recommend this game. First off, the map is horrible in the game. It doesn't tell you where you are, where you need to be, no hints, nothing. You stumble through the game with absolutely no direction or hints.
I can overlook the horrible character models and cheesy dialogue, but the whole "Stuck wandering around in hopes that i'll stumble on the right thing" is a big turn off.

*Edit* Sorry if my personal opinion of a game offended anyone. Although I shouldn't have to defend myself, I will. I'm not a "noob". I've been gaming since the original Mario Bros. and Zelda.
Games usually tell you where you are on the map so that you have a general sense of your surroundings. No, I don't like things handed to me in a game, but some direction would be nice.
I love trying new games and I love challenging games, however, this one just didn't do it for me. That is MY opinion which I am entitled to. If you don't like it, then skip over it and move the hell on with life. Don't bash someone just because they have a different opinion (on a damn GAME I might add) than you.

okay first off i wanna say that i kinda dig this game, its got an interesting story that doesnt give you many hints so you have to figure things out for yourself which can get kinda frustrating. BUT...this game is so new and poorly develped that it has so many glitches.

these glitches will scare the sh*t out of you. no lie. they happen completely at random and are not expected at all. these glitches include but ARE NOT LIMITED TO:

-walking up to NPCs that are scared of you because they know you are a warewolf and a LOUD, GLITCHY, WEARWOLF GROWL PLAYED ON FULL BLAST QUEUES IN. so at first its like peacefull music and then LOUD SCARY GLTICH NOISES FOLLOWED BY RAPID NPC MOVEMENTS.

-character bugging. at times after completing cirtain quests sometimes the charachter your supposed to talk to, glitches out and becomes only HALF a charachter. His face is missing, the whole front half of his body is missing. its freaky as hell.

these are the two biggest things that killed this game for me. I was rather enjoying the game but after being scared sh*tless like that i cant go on. sorry guys, im a ♥♥♥♥♥ but i cant do it.

A scary horror game is a scary horror game. this was not ment to be a horror game, the glitches MADE it a horror game.

Bad, bad wolf
Rating: Poor

This game was a bit of a disappointment. When a game implements a certain style and feel it should be done right and with lots of details. This game fails to achieve just that and fails to deliver. It just feels not done and rushed, and those things keep it from being an enjoyable game. A few examples:

It starts with the resolution itself, some weird low-res 1000 x 800, not widescreen but not 4:3 either. The graphics are cell-shaded but done very generic and it looks just bad. The effects for water, fire and particles are dx6 or something.

The sound is also not very good and sound rather cheap. The voices are rather cheesy and lipsinc is not in sync (understatement). Music is ok but gets annoying quickly.

When you move it feels like you are very small because you are a bit close to the ground. You interact with things when your dot changes to a hand. That's about it what you can do.

The story is a bit weird; you wake up outside a castle, run around a bit and faint again, wake up and look at a pre-2000 character model that asks you questions and it feels like they know a lot about you although they just found you outside the gate. Pretty weird.

The story path is very linear, just look up things and use then to pass a gate. That's about it. Plenty of better games around and I suggest you stay away from this 'game'.

This Game is fundamentally flawed and broken i tried to get it to work in full screen but nope only windowed because of the resolution of 1280x768. the graphics, animations, sounds, and mechanics of the game are dated to were i would rather play a good classic pc game like vampire the masquerade. there are clipping issues on models and characters, as well as the game gives no information about how to progress forward after getting to a dungeon wanting to go further down and being told "there is something else". I also when talking to characters in the game had their text floating outside of the text box with no alignment at all. i played this for really 40 minutes trying to get immersed in the story and game but i lost it when i had no way to progress forward and no context as to where to go other than a kitchen to find a cauldron when all other doors are blocked or locked. one last thing i tried to use a gamepad (xbox wired controller) and the controlls would work with the game pad only when the game wanted to work and i had to use both the gamepad and the keyboard to run and use items in my inventory.
this game has some good ideas but the lack of real development to bring this game to the standard of working fundamentals or what is expected for a game released in 2014 even 2009 needs to be done or to advertise this openly as an alpha if it is even that. save yourself the head ache and 10 dollars and avoid.

Most misleading 'About the Game' on steam. These features are poorly integrated few in number. The game is bad. Would slam this game less if the developers didn't try and lie on the tin. Do not play this game. It's terrible.

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

Hra jako taková má ze začátku náběh na chytlavou gotickou atmosféru. Chvíli po začátku však začně ztrácet dech. Ve chvíli kdy se konečně setkáte z vlkodlakem stačí proběhnout krátkou chodbou, zatáhnout za páku a v klidu bez jakéhokoliv stresu pokračovat dál. V podobném komorním duchu se potom nesou všechna vaše další setkání. Pasáže, kdy vysloveně tápete a zkoušíte v zoufalství možnosti, které mají daleko k jakékoliv logice, hru nepříjemně kouskují. A východisko bývá v důsledku mnohem prozaičtější (viz. schopnost vykrádání kapes, kterou vás nenapadne použít prostě jenom proto, že hra vás na tuto možnost neupozornila). Hra má několik málo map a i přesto se zde hojně setkáváte s bugy typu nemožnosti průchodu širokou chodbou, či problémy se zdoláváním obyčejného schodiště. I přes slepá místa plná tápání je hra ke všemu až příliš krátká. Vystačí vám doslova jen na pár hodin.

+ Zajímavý nápad
+ Atmosféra (i když místy značně škobrtající)

- Nepříjemné bugy
- Nemám rád, když mě hra vede vysloveně za ručičku, ale o specifickém využití mých schopností by se zmínit mohla :)
- Herní jednohubka
- vlkodlak je neschopný trouba kterému není težké uniknout

Slabší průměr 4/10
