A new take on Little Red Riding Hood

Night of the Full Moon

A Rogue-like Black Fairy Tale

VIEW

The exact origins of Little Red Riding Hood are shrouded in mystery. From East Asia to Europe, variations of this scary tale have been told to children for centuries.

For the most part, it starts the same: Redhead is out to visit her grandma, only to find a wolf that is waiting to devour her, too. Chinese versions use a tiger. In parts of Africa, the animal is a hyena or a fox.

It’s the ending where this folk tale swerves. Seventeenth century French author Charles Perrault penned a famous version that has our red chaperoned girl deceived by the Big Bad Wolf to meet her demise.

More than a century later, Germany’s the Brothers Grimm codified the story as we know it today: a huntsman comes to the rescue just in time, slays the Wolf and saves all.

In Night of the Full Moon, Little Red Riding Hood is far from the helpless lass we’ve come to know. While she looks for her grandmother, our heroine can assume many identities, such as Nun, Ranger, Knight or even Little Witch.

The game plays out in typical card game fashion: players assemble a powerful deck to aid Red in her battles. While on her quest, she will come across all kinds of enemies, from infatuated boys and escaped convicts to witches and wolves.

The best part is, the ending of this version is up to you.
