(WIP) Blood Moon (Updated 29th March 2021)

Blood Moon is a story about morality, relationships, and what it takes to survive in a world which, at best, views you as a myth… and at worst a monster.

But, really, it’s a corny werewolf dating sim in a grim coat of paint.

:wolf:Story

You’re a werewolf. You and your pack have just moved into a city. You don’t like it. It’s big, busy, and smells like piss. But it takes a lot of money to feed twenty something werewolves, and there aren’t many jobs in the forest.

One night, while guarding your new territory, you find a packless werewolf. This seemingly random encounter pulls you into the city’s paranormal underbelly, populated by witches, vampires, ghosts, and hunters.

You’re not alone. Your pack is with you. They’re your allies, friends… and maybe more than that. But be careful. The choices you make not only determine your fate, but theirs as well.

(I’m sorry that’s a little cheesy. I’m not great at writing blurbs).

:wolf:Features

  • The option to play as a woman, a man, or a nonbinary person.

  • A total of seven romanceable characters, all with unique personalities. You can learn more about them by visiting my tumblr, linked below.

  • Multiple story paths and endings.

Content Notice

This game contains strong language, drug references, violence, as well as a whole bus load of other mature themes. Please use discretion when deciding if this game if for you.

Some other stuff you should probably know:

  • I have never written a game before so there’s probably going to be some bugs, especially in the first few drafts. I’m really sorry about this. If you encounter an issue while playing please let me know. I’m still figuring this out and any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated.

  • I’m also not great when it comes to spelling and grammar. I have no excuse for this. English is my first language, I have been writing for years, I should be better at it by now… but I’m not. If you spot any mistakes I’d be grateful if you could let me know.

  • This is a WIP. Currently I have only finished the first few chapters and they’re still a little rough around the edges. I will update this when I post new chapters.

Hey, i love Werwolf stories!!!

I really liked how you implemented the pack. The flashes of word associated a pack bond and helped me to feel more immersed in the story so good job there. I will definitely keep an eye on this,:grin:

Great story so far, thank you for writing this game :slight_smile:
Note: When I chose to stay behind and watch over Carrie, Ed acted as if I had chosen to kill her, even though I always chose to take her to the Alpha.

Oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh. I am so excited reading this book! I adore the writing. It’s easy to speed-read while also being very engaging. The very first lines of Chapter 1 had me grinning. I noticed a few errors, so I’m just including screenshots.


*you’re


*other’s (I think)
*as


*is (just to keep the tense consistent)


*huddled (I think?)

And I adore Minjo! And Ed is freaking amazing. Do you reckon he’s a Redditor? Anyway, I can’t wait to read more. You’ve done such a wonderful job!

Edit: Wait, I had more gushing to do! The psychic howls of the werewolves and their “Hive mind” is amazing. Bates is such an ass and his casual racism was amazing to read. (When he said, “It’s cool though”, I wanted to physically punch him.)

I might just keep editing this comment to gush some more so apologies in advance!
