  • Summary: Neat game that goes in my list of "good indie games" from the last 16 months or so with FTL, Hotline Miami and Legend of Grimrock. The mechanics are simple, but solid. The story is quite goofy, but dark. The graphics are cartoony, but not terrible, especially for a low-budget 3d game. Quite enjoying it. I hope there's some more added later.

  • Summary: I haven't finished the game yet (more than half way through), but I can tell this was made with both love and care. Combat is a little clunky and not exactly fluent, but it doesn't detract at all from the core of the game, which is basically a tower defence game. - Very good atmosphere, sometimes tongue in cheek, other times not so much (and can even be a little bit dark). - The story is simple, but intriguing and well presented.

  • Summary: This is decidedly average game. It's not that it's bad, it's just that it could have been so much better. They went for a 'stylised' look, but it's neither cartoony or real (it mixes in both) and comes off looking awkward, the gameplay is one-dimensional when compared to better games (such as Defence Grid or Sanctum), and the completely flat voice acting just sucks any remaining personality out of the game. It's novel for about ten minutes, but not worth the money.

  • Summary: Sang-Froid is an action strategy hybrid, with some light RPG elements mixed in. You play as one of two lumberjack brothers, protecting your sister from werewolves and other enemies in the Canadian wilderness. The game consists of two phases. The strategy phase occurs during the day, where you set out traps, and purchase supplies and upgrades. At night, you put your planning to the test, as you try to lure your enemies into your traps, and engage in melee or range combat.

  • Summary: One of the most unique games I've played, and lots of fun. The traps are all thoughtfully designed, and none of them seem redundant. They must be used carefully and in concert with each other, and this makes planning your defense interesting, varied, and challenging. The atmosphere of the game is fantastic. Really haven't been this pleasantly surprised in a long time. And for $15 you should go get it.

  • Summary: One of the most well-executed action/strategy games I've ever encountered, and I've played a few. Great trap synergy, a vast skill tree and a well thought-out preparation system allows for some fantastic strategizing and variation of gameplay. The controls are tight and every wolf you kill feels satisfying, be it with your axe, gun or one of your many traps. Definitely among my top 20 games.

  • Summary: I dont often play that kind of game but for some reason i fel in love whit this one. First of all like others have noted, the ambiance is awesome and immersive. Then there's the brilliant game desing whit new mecanics that will be stolen by other games for sure. And the cherry on the cake is the great story whit let's face it not so great voice acting but it does the job.

  • Summary: Sang-Froid: Tales of Werewolves is very creative and unique "tower-defense" with a great and new game play ideas. One of the first thing the player may notice is the creative and interesting story-line which tells a tale of two brothers and their sister (who is possessed by the Devil) in Lower Canada in the year of 1858. You choose to play as one of the brothers, Jack or Jos.

  • Summary: It's very rare that I'm so pleasantly surprised by a spontaneous investment. Were one to look solely at the surface, one would conclude that Sang-Froid offers a relatively familiar action/defense mashup. Two facets serve to dispute that claim, and one completely destroys it. First, Sang-Froid offers numerous skills and monetary investments which allow for varied and interesting character builds.

  • Summary: One of the best takes on Canadian Quebecois folklore intertwined into a RTS setting. Didn't know what to expect from this game but I'm impressed, especially by the storyline
