Set in the World of Darkness, Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Purgatory is a captivating blend of fantasy thriller, visual novel, and tabletop RPG.

Werewolf: The Apocalypse — Purgatory invites players to explore the dark side of (in)human nature, uncover supernatural conspiracies, and combat the deadly chaos force known as the Wyrm. Set in the legendary World of Darkness story universe, the game follows Samira, an Afghan werewolf and refugee, as she navigates a world where evil takes both human and supernatural forms.

Meet Samira, an Afghan werewolf and refugee. Follow her story as she flees her homeland and gets struck by a life-changing tragedy. Play in a world where evil comes in both human and supernatural shapes, and investigate the horrifying secrets hidden across the city of Warsaw. Will she sink into despair, overwhelmed by the tragedies of her past? Or will she give in to her rage and fight for a better future? The choice is yours.

Purgatory plunges players into the rich and captivating world of Werewolf: The Apocalypse, where the line between humanity and monstrosity blurs. Blending RPG mechanics with a visual novel foundation, the game follows Samira on her journey of self-discovery as she confronts both inner demons and real-life monsters lurking in the shadows.
