Well-received indie game Sang-Froid: Tales of Werewolves is now free on Steam.

In a special announcement, creator Artifice Studio cryptically posted:

“Sang-Froid will soon be free! See below for more info”

But there was no further info and Sang-Froid is free right now.

With over 1,400 reviews on Steam with an average of Very Positive, the indie title’s blend of action and strategy with supernatural elements, a folkloric vibe and tower defense mechanics promises to be an intriguing way to spend a few hours before the Super Bowl starts tomorrow. (Or instead of the Super Bowl, if that’s your jam.)

Check out the Sang-Froid: Tales of Werewolves trailer below:

The game’s plot is centered around “two feuding brothers” who “will have to put aside their differences to save their sister, who is pursued by the Devil himself.” With packs of slavering, werewolfish enemies threatening to overwhelm your bit of the forest, you’ll need to “combine ingenious traps to setup deadly ambushes,” survive, and save your sister.

Features include the following ( via Steam ):

  • Plan your strategy! – Take advantage of the calm during the day to fill your forest with all kinds of traps that are as inventive as they are deadly.

  • Hunt your enemies! – When night falls, use the wind and lure the diabolic beasts into your traps using bait... But watch out! You have to be on constant guard to make sure you don't become the prey of the beasts you are tracking!

  • Fight heroically! – If some of the beasts get past your traps, that's when it gets bloody! First you can shoot them with your trusty musket and then eliminate the ones that survive by slaughtering them with your axe! Action and carnage guaranteed!

  • Use fear to your advantage! – All the mechanics of the game revolve around the innovative concept of Fear Factor, which makes your ability to intimidate your enemy your best weapon. For example, use fire to frighten the wolves and scatter their packs.

  • Customize your character! – Choose one of the two O'Carroll brothers and develop your character using a skill system based on role-playing games (RPGs), making your hero as unique as he is powerful!

  • Discover a rich universe! – Immerse yourself in 19th century Canada where legends meet History in a world filled with lore and wonders. Buy historical weapons and items, fight mythical beasts and uncover the truth about werewolves...

Sang-Froid: Tales of Werewolves came out in 2013. Will you be giving it the ol’ college try four years later? Feel free to let us know in the comments section below.
