What do I have for you today? A werewolf video game that doesn’t involve killing werewolves! It’s been a long while since we’ve seen one of those. The game is a retro platformer titled Blood of the Werewolf. Nathaniel McClure of Scientifically Proven Entertainment chatted with Nintendo Life on the game, saying, “This game is not a casual platformer. Blood of the Werewolf is a brutal white knuckle experience that will test you and push your platforming skill. We are currently working on a few unique Wii U GamePad features that highlight that classic swear-inducing experience, including leaderboard and friend tracking elements, level maps, and “secret area” indicators.”
“You play as Selena, one of the last of the Wolf Clan. Her parents, both refugees from the werewolf genocide in Europe, taught Selena to keep her abilities secret from the world in order to survive. Still, fearing that their enemies would follow them to America, Selena’s father Nicolae taught her to fight.
When Selena turned 13, as is tradition for the Wolf Clan, she killed her first prey. She was presented with the Wolf Clan Sigil, which she wears on her side. Selena married Marko, another member of the Wolf Clan, and together they moved from the city to a small farm house away from others. Here, they were free to release the wolf within. Soon after, Selena gave birth to a son, Nickoli. They were a peaceful, happy family — but that peace was not meant to last.
The story opens with Selena coming home one evening to discover her husband Marko brutally murdered and her infant son missing. The game takes place over a single full moon night as Selena journeys through the city that is controlled by the three major houses; Frankenstein, Jekyll, and Dracula. She must encounter and overcome many minions, obstacles, and bosses to find the last of the wolf line, her son.”
You get to play a werewolf AND you get to kill douchey vampires!
Check out the trailer:
The game has “already been confirmed for PC, PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade”, and it will be in the Wii U e-shop in June.
Who is looking forward to this game?
