Werewords is a super fun game that isn’t out yet, but we did get to try it here at Roll For Crit and really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, there’s some behind the scenes rumblings that might put a damper on its release. It seems that Bezier Games originally approach Oink Games about obtaining the rights to their game Insider, which contains similar gameplay to Werewords. After failing to obtain those rights, Bezier went ahead with their original plans and intends to publish Werewords later this year.
You can read the full back and forth from the two companies at the links below and make up your own mind as to whose side is correct. Either way, it seems that Bezier is in the clear legally on this one, and Werewords should have no trouble meeting its release date.

Bureaunauts is the game of managing paperwork and other mundane office tasks… in spaaaaace! Also, you fight monsters. Check out our impressions of this unique sci-fi title.
A copy of Bureaunauts was provided to us by the publisher for the purposes of this review.
Whitehall Mystery gives players the opportunity to both pursue Saucy Jack and step into his shoes. Two to four players take on the roles of Jack himself or the real-life Investigators who famously took on the case at the height of the Ripper’s reign of terror. The game expands the Letters from Whitechapel universe by introducing three new Investigators, including journalist Jasper T.C. Waring and his loyal dog Smoker, surgeon Thomas Bond, and Sergeant Arthur Ferris.
This new standalone game draws directly from history for its gruesome details and dramatic pacing. Whitehall Mystery emulates the unpredictable nature of the historical crime and limited ability of London’s police force at the time by allowing the Ripper’s movements to remain unknown to the other players while he commits his crimes about the city. Without the trappings of modern criminal investigations, Investigators of Jack the Ripper’s London will have to rely on their wits and powers of deduction to track the notorious criminal across Whitehall.
Whether players choose to chase the villain or evade the law, the hunt is on in Whitehall Mystery.
