Is the next member of Congress a werewolf? Can you survive a lycanthrope's bite? There's no silver bullet for winning an election!

"Congresswolf" is an interactive novel by Ellen Cooper, where your choices control the story. It's entirely text-based—140,000 words, without graphics or sound effects—and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

"Democracy must be something more than two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner." — James Bovard

When a werewolf murders your boss, you must step up to run a Congressional campaign all on your own. While werewolves, protestors, and worse—the media—lurk around every corner, you'll use everything you can to get your candidate elected.

Email servers? Tax returns? Who cares. Election-season secrets and October surprises are nothing compared to the possibility that your candidate might be a werewolf...or that you might become one yourself.

• Play as any gender, play as gay or straight
• Set the right tone with your TV ads
• Prep your candidate for debates
• Impress big donors
• Get out the vote
• Find out who killed your predecessor
• Decide where your candidate will stand on werewolf rights

Amazingly great but...

It could be better I wish you didn't have to pay for the rest of the story it's regally a nuisance.

Good story, great time filler


This interactive short story was engaging. I enjoy most games like these as long as the writing is well done.

Spend time anywhere, anytime enjoying this!


I tried one text based game over a year ago by a different developer. It was very disappointing.
However, when AppAdvice recently touted this game as entertaining, well written, and a personal adventure with a host of player reviews with 5* ratings, I simply couldn't pass up downloading Congresswolf!
The developers have theme based bundles, or individual story based games at very reasonable prices.
Games are ADA accessible for low vision players using voice over! Another high mark for Gaming!
Just purchased the Sci-fi Bundle and will dive into them soon! Give these text based game a whirl. You won't regret it!!
