The Howler – Game Jam Build

The Howler is a short and beautifully drawn little game where you make a lot of angry noise to gain followers.

There’s no description or backstory for The Howler, but the message behind it seems to be quite pertinent to the current political climate. In the game you control a little artist who can let out a big angry howl by pressing the left mouse button. This angry howl attracts people towards you and you promptly eat them, making you bigger, fatter and stronger – which allows you to attract even more followers.

Taking just a few minutes to play through, The Howler really impresses with its fantastic cartoony artwork and quirky premise. The subject matter brings to mind the way certain politicians (and other fanatics) have garnered a huge following by spreading lots of hateful noise. Highly recommended.
