Blood of the Werewolf 2.0 Announced

May 12th, 2014 by

blood_of_the_werewolf___icon_by_blagoicons-d6t9ku2If any of you have read my Blood of the Werewolf review, you would know that this Retro styled platformer has so far been one of my favourite titles of the year. As it so happens I was contacted by one of the Company Founders, (Nathaniel “Than”  McClure), with an update on the latest developments in his team’s recent release.


Below you will find excerpts from the press release ‘Than’ issued today.



1. Blood of the Werewolf (2.0) – Out Now on Steam

  • Blood of the Werewolf now has 3 game modes (all with leaderboards)
  • Speed Run (Story) – You didn’t start off speed running Mario and you won’t here either. Experience, perfect, and execute THE RUN to compete on leaderboards for the fastest time.
  • Score Run – You think you have mastered the platforming? You can zip around the level in minutes? Try getting the highest score by collecting and destroying 100′s of strategically placed sigils, time bonuses, and enemies for points
  • Endless Run – How long can you last and how far can you get in Selena’s Endless Nightmare of procedurally generated platforms and obstacles.
  • All updates free for existing players.


3. Updates and fixes in 2.0

  • We spent 6 months drinking from the waterfall of awesome feedback on the game.
  • We identified the top 20 issues/stuck spots and addressed them.
  • Polished/tuned the controls
  • New and updated animations
  • New and updated particles
  • Camera tweaks and fixes
  • Audio updates and fixes

Those more attentive may have noticed that I missed out point 2 of the release, and this is because I wanted to keep this for last.

2. PC Community Appreciation (Going Gold) Sale on Steam

  • As a thank you to the incredible PC community for helping us make our game more fun to play we are offering Blood of the Werewolf for 90% off (just $.99) on Steam until we “Go Gold” on the console versions. (started May 10th) Blood of the Werewolf on Steam


For us UK gamers, that means that at the time of writing, Blood of the Werewolf is currently on sale at just 69 pence.

If you have a craving for some old school platforming, and with the newly introduced modes included,  this is easily worth the discounted cost. So do your inner 12 year old a favour and pick up this game while you can and reminisce about how games used to challenge us.

    Can’t wait to play this game, hopefully it’ll come to the PS4 soon, wouldn’t mind getting it on steam too, might have to invest in some Steam credit.
