The Accursed Moon

by barkergames - 48 Hour Compo Entry

When someone turns into a werewolf during a full moon they have no control over what their werewolf form does.
But now you can!
You play as the werewolf during a full moon.

Have fun!

Nice work!

Nice and solid. I like the natural idea of scaling by people arming themselves in response to rampages.

It's fun, but kinda hard. I like the idea though.

This is really good - I like it. Once they start getting armed it becomes very difficult but still enjoyed it.

Very difficult once they start arming themselves. Could be neat with some more work!

Nice job, I think the controls could be better, but other then that, it was nice.

It's pretty fun, but enemies can shoot through walls, which can be irritating once the hunters start showing up. It can be tough to tell who is armed and who isn't until you're close, but the progression is pretty good

I do agree the controls are a bit difficult to work with, though I will admit I have trouble getting controls to work well myself.

It is a nice game and a really good base to improve it (if you wanted :P). I like the game mechanics, simple but direct. Maybe it would have been nice to add more wolf animation when walking, or hide inside houses with a ceiling, and just when you enter uncover them. But these are just ideas :). It gets hard when inhabitants shoot arrows, nearly impossible to avoid :S

The first night is a little easy, I felt like the people should have run away or something. After that it becomes more challenging. Good entry.

Pretty good graphics. The game quickly gets hard after the first stage.
I think the wolf could've used some walking animations.

Sorry, I can't play this. If you have time, please recompile using the XNA "reach" profile so it can run on pre-DX11 cards.

Sorry about that, it's been updated using the "reach" profile.

That was really cool.

Got pretty much instantly killed by an archer though.

What I think would be really awesome is if you turned back into a human, had another 100 seconds where guys investigated, and if they found you in some dead person's house they'd try and kill you, until you turned back into a wolf and tried to maul them etc.

But yeah, for 48 hours this was really cool. The turning motion was really fluid, idea was solid. Nice one.

Nice playable game. A bit more environment interaction would have been nice.

Liked the difficulty increase as days increase. Needs wandering peasants as peasants stuck in corners is kind of boring.

Hm, this is odd, I walked through 2 levels and there is no one else beside me. I made a sweep of the whole map and there are no NPCs..

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


REMEMBER: The “Theme” category is only for the main theme (You are the Villain). Don’t penalize for not using Goats.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

We’ve identified the problem, and should have the page caching bugs fixed for next Ludum Dare.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
