This is the updated version, since our GGJ submission wasn't working as intended.


"Howling for Home" is about hope and finding your way back home. You play as a lone wolf that lost his pack and tries to make his way through an unforgiving ice world to reunite with your family. Only getting hope of escaping these frozen lands from the distant howls of your pack. So you wander forward and howl for home.

I tried it and I think the controls need tweaking & a free camera would help. The constant auto-adjustment of the camera is... odd. :)
