Halloween is right around the corner, and as luck would have it, another full moon. What better way to celebrate this year’s frightful festivities than by playing Otter Space’s Roblox horror game A Wolf or Other (more aptly abbreviated as AWOO) with your friends on Xbox One?
A Wolf or Other is an asymmetrical multiplayer game about a small community of people who must fend off against a ferocious beast every full moon. But there’s a twist! The monster is hiding among them, and it’s on the hunt. You’ll never know when your closest ally may actually turn into your worst nightmare.
Originally inspired by murder mystery games, VitalWinter, the lead developer, wanted to create a dark and thematic experience on Roblox where players could enjoy the thrill of hide-and-seek layered with the frantic fun of a social deception game. After some time of off-and-on development, A Wolf or Other was born. And in just under a couple of years, it’s already racked up hundreds of millions of visits on Roblox.
In each round, players are randomly assigned to one of three unique roles. As a Civilian, your goal is to avoid getting eaten alive, which is admittedly easier said than done. That’s because whoever gets chosen to be the Werewolf can smell their prey through walls and even transform back into a human to avoid detection. Luckily, the Civilians have a Hunter on their side who’s armed with a crossbow and silver bolts. All it takes is one shot for the humans to emerge victoriously. Stick together, aim true, and you might be able to survive this wicked night.
A Wolf or Other is still in active development, so expect new maps and more features to come!
From all of us at Roblox, have fun and have a fang-tastic Halloween!
