Nerdy Party Game, Werewolf, Goes VR

Many people out there have probably at least played a round or two of the game Werewolf. In this game you play the role of one of the villagers and two people in the group are werewolves in disguise. The game alternates between Night and Day phases where different types of villagers get different actions (Night Phase), and then the group votes on who the werewolves are. If they guess correctly and kill both werewolves the villagers win, however, if the number of werewolves to villagers comes equal the werewolves win the game.

So it appears that this game has now made the leap over to the VR realm in a game called "Werewolves Within" in with you will all be sitting around a campfire trying to determine who is who. This game is available for the Occulus, HTC Vive, and PlayStation VR, and is going for $29.99.

Here's the publisher's blurb on the game:

Werewolves Within™ brings the fun of game night with friends to virtual reality!

After several attacks on townsfolk, the medieval village of Gallowston has had enough! With a special guidebook in hand, players congregate to vote and eliminate any and all possible werewolves hiding disguised in the village.

Werewolves Within is a fast-paced game of hidden roles and social deduction for five to eight players. In one game, you might be a villager trying their hardest to cleanse the town of werewolves, while minutes later you could be the werewolf, lying and betraying friends in order to survive the vote.

Utilize specific roles and abilities, and the power of persuasion, to assess, deduce, and win the round. Whether playing a vigilant villager or a devious werewolf, no two games are ever the same.

Werewolves Within captures the essence and competitive spirit of playing around the table through VR technology.

Limited Edition T-Shirts Available Until Tuesday

From time to time I have these off the wall thoughts that go through my head, and sometimes they make it into my comics, into something I say while streaming, or onto clothing. Thanks to Teespring I made this random thought into a shirt, sticker, and hoodie. So if I were you, and this is up your alley I would go over there and get yourself a shirt/hoodie/sticker before they are gone!!!

Protect Yourself from Rogue AI in BladeShield

BladeShield, developed by Rank 17, is a VR game in which you are a lone security guard who finds out rather quickly that tonight is not the night to be doing guard duty. The AI that powers the transport vessel you are currently on has gone rogue and is attempting to take you out with as many drones as it can find on the ship. 

Thankfully you are not defenseless, you have your two trust BladeShields, but let's be honest, they are lightsabers that sometimes turn into shields, to battle these drones that will attack you for every side. How long will you last is the only question.

This game is currently available for SteamVR for $2.99, and requires the HTC Vive to play.

SIDENOTE: Is anyone else getting that Luke is training on the Millennium Falcon vibe?

The Soul Stealing Game DISTRAINT is Now on Android

Many might recall a little 2-D side-scroller game in which you play as the character, Price. In order to become a partner in one of the most famous companies you are sent to repossess a house from an elderly old lady. There's one twist, when you attempt to do so something strange happens and the house takes on a life of its own. Now the question is have you sold your soul for a chance with this company and are now in your own personal hell?

If you want to find out in a more portable version, than the PC/Steam version, you can right now for Android. It would appear that the game is initially free to play, but does contain in-app purchases, although I'm not really sure what this would entail. One thing I would like to point out is that even though this is a port of the PC game there have been tweaks and changes made to make this game optimized when running on your Android device.

Randal's Monday Repeats Over and Over on iOS

Remember that game for a bit ago that surrounded a gentleman, well not really a gentleman, more like a slacker with his drinking buddies, who gets stuck in a time loop and he has to figure out how to break out of said time loop but completing tasks in a point-and-click game? Well, if you didn't get it for the PC, PS4, or an Android device, but you have an iOS device, there is good news, you too can now join in on the adventure. 

The first 2 chapters will be free to play so that you can take the game for a spin and see if the nerdy humor, inside jokes, sci-fi references, and more are right up your alley. The rest of the chapters will run you $0.99 a pop (that's 5 additional episodes, so $4.95). So go over to the AppStore and get it today.
