So the initial title screen made it seem like this would be a different type of game, which may have affected my expectations, but I did like the graphics, its just that the music really felt out of place since the gameplay itself isn't very fast paced. Not a bad game though, just needs some new music and a little variation in monster types perhaps? or possibly have the werewolves attack other people yo help speed up the process?

Great music! Good use of the theme as well, I really liked the graphics. If there was one recommendation I would make it would be to add a mechanic that people might group together so you could more easily convert multiple people at once. Maybe you could control a werewolf and corral them toward your cursor or something. Overall a really impressive entry! Thanks for your game :D hope you had fun making it!

The graphics were impressive. The mechanic was interesting, but I scored around 8-10 each time. Felt like the strategy was following individual people, where a shorter transformation might have made it worth trying to catch multiple targets.

There's some potential for this game as the visuals are pretty nice, but there's really not much to the game rather than shinning light on AI's. Good concept and is a cute game for Halloween or such.

Hi, nice game ! We're realizing a video with several games of the Ludum Dare #35.
Can you add your game on ? (it's free)
So we can include also your game in the video ;)
p.s. write #LDJAM in the game's description

There's potential in here, but I agree with nextreality and dylanwolf. I felt the music didn't match the mood of the game and I believe some gameplay tweaks might do the trick. Nice graphics!

It looks a bit like the title screen got more love than the game itself. The title screen is very nice.

Thank you all for your feedback. We really appreciate it.

We are really sorry that we failed to make the werewolfs attack the people.

But we will try to make it better and do this.

Thank you all.

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
