Description

The story takes place during the month of December in 1858 in 19th century Canada. Two feuding brothers must come together to save their sister from being possessed by the Devil. The writing is inspired by traditional Quebec and Innu folklore with story contributions by fictional writer Bryan Perro.

Sang-Froid: Tales of Werewolves is a blend of action and strategy around defending a cabin. It requires the player to plan ahead and then use quick reflexes to clean up the scenario. Through the clever and skillful use of traps in some scenarios close combat can be avoided. If close combat is required a rifle, an axe and your fear factor can be used to deal with enemies.

Players choose one of the two brothers that represent the games two levels of difficulty. The normal difficulty has Joseph with proficiency in close combat and setting traps and the hard difficulty has Jack with a dependency on strategic trap setting. The strategy elements occur at the beginning of each day where through a bird's eye view of the area surrounding the main cabin the predictive waves of enemies and their travel paths can be observed. This enables you to place traps to intercept and hopefully destroy approaching enemies. Enemies that reach your buildings will attack and eventually destroy them.

It includes a gameplay mechanic called fear factor where sources of light and shouting are some ways to increase an enemy's fear for you. The less an enemy fears you the more likely they are to get close and subsequently attack. Watching this mechanic closely is essential for crowd control if attacked by a large group of enemies. The game offers 20 scenarios, each taking place once a day between December 5th, and December 24th. The game comes with full English and French voice acting.
