How WEREWOLF went from tabletop RPG to a video game

Werewolf: From a Tabletop RPG
to a Video Game [Watch Dev Diary]

Warsaw, 9 September 2020 – What are the challenges of adapting the mechanics of a legendary pen-and-paper RPG for a video game? Learn the answer from the Lead Designer of Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Heart of the Forest in the new dev diary.

Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Heart of the Forest is the upcoming savage horror game that adapts the mechanics of the classic pen-and-paper RPG system. In this story-focused experience, you play as Maia, a young girl who comes to Poland looking for her roots and gets drafted into an ancient war.


In the new Dev Diary, Artur Ganszyniec discusses the challenges and limitations that developers need to consider when adapting a tabletop system for another medium. Anything could happen during a traditional pen-and-paper session. How does Heart of the Forest replicate that feeling of shaping your own story? Discover the answer in the video above.
