About the Story

'The jet lands smoothly in Harbin. The stink of the city and the bite of the ice-cold air assaults you as you disembark, but your destination is a long jeep ride north, so you'll have to suffer through the journey. At least the provided driver will give you more time to read up on the council's file of the situation.'

Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide


You play a werewolf detective investigating a mysterious massacre of a whole village. The author manages to use some of the unsual features of his PC to the game's benefit. Unfortunately, this work also suffers from underimplementations, the worst of which are the absolutely contrived characters.

A short, fun werewolf romp that could use some more cluing, September 28, 2017
by MathBrush

This game casts you as a werewolf agent for a large group of werewolves. You have to travel to a snow-covered Chinese village to investigate its destruction.

The story and setting are actually pretty good, and I liked this game. Where it falls down is in presenting information to the player; nowhere, even in the extensive menu system, are you told how to transform between human and wolf. Conversation topics have to be guessed to proceed with little in-game explanation.

Fun mid-length game to take for a spin. Nice use of different senses in descriptions.
