Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Heart of the Forest launches today

Different Tales and Walkabout Games are proud to announce that Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Heart of the Forest, the first-ever video game based on the legendary tabletop RPG, is launching today on PC, Mac, and Linux through Steam, GOG.com, and GeForce Now, at $14.99 / €12.49 / £11.39. A special 10% discount will be available for 7 days from the day of release.

The game will also be available via Steam and GOG in the World of Darkness Bundle, alongside Vampire: The Masquerade – Coteries of New York and Shadows of New York, with a 15% discount for the whole set.

Werewolf: Heart of the Forest is a savage, story-focused, horror game that features extensive narrative branching, with more than 200,000 paths leading to 5 main endings. The player becomes Maia, a young woman who comes to Poland looking for her roots only to end up being drafted into an ancient war.

This game elevates the visual novel genre by adapting the Rage and Willpower mechanics from the legendary tabletop RPG. Maia’s personality is determined by the player’s choices and the world around her adapts accordingly. By controlling Rage, the game’s primary resource, the player can change Maia’s perspective and see aspects that will be invisible in other playthroughs.

Heart of the Forest is set in a real-world location: the Bialowieza Forest a.k.a. the Puszcza, the last primal wilderness in Europe. Maia’s story was inspired by 2016-2017 protests against commercial logging of the forest, which resulted in the European Union judiciary ordering a stop to deforestation.
