Been playing this for the last week... It's a decently funny puzzler with a nice little transformation mechanic. To solve puzzles, you need to switch between being a human or werewolf, but you can only change in the moonlight. There's a decent amount of exploration, with the ability to teleport back to areas with blue signs so that the exploration is encouraged. There's different characters throughout the game that give you quests to solve alongside the main story... And the puzzles get progressively more complicated as you move on.

I thought it was going to launch at $5, and was ready to recommend it then... For $2 it's definitely worth checkin out.

By the people who made Jolly Rover. I've been looking forward to this one, just unsure if I should get the iOS or PC version. Wondering too if both versions are exactly the same.

Any GC achievements?

Check out the new MacGuffin's Curse trailer (kind of!) featuring legends Tim Shafer, Dave Grossman and Ron Gilbert - it's incredible (again - kind of!). Well it made us genuinely laugh out loud anyway - what do you think?! Please spread the word!
