Playing as mythical beings is a lot of fun because you basically get to be a superhero rooted in our own world’s lore. Werewolves are one of the more entertaining creatures to play as because the specific of their abilities, other than becoming fluffy, are pretty loosely-defined. It leaves a lot of room for the game designers to experiment with things and mess around, and that always makes for a more interesting game in the long run. Well, Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood, a title which we think needs more punctuation, is coming out on February 4th, and it looks like a lot of fun.
“You are Cahal, a powerful Garou who chose to go into exile after losing control of his destructive rage. You can transform into a wolf and a Crinos, a huge ferocious beast. You must master the three forms and powers of human, wolf and Crinos to punish those who defile Gaia, Mother Earth. But your worst enemy is yourself: if you don’t contain your rage, it can destroy you once again…” What’s cooler than destroying yourself? Nothing, we’ve all watched anime, we know how it goes.
It’s always nice to play a new adventure game, and Werewolf has a fair bit of excitement around it anyway. It’ll also be interesting to see just how well the game handles the theme of eco-terrorism and the dangers of rampant capitalism that seem to be at the core of the story. I’m hoping it’ll be a good game, but then I always hope games will be good because it makes my job more enjoyable.
