Orcs Must Die, anyone?
Is it me, or does this game look like a reskined Orcs Must Die... only with lumbarjacks and werewolves?

Close, more planning in this game though ;). We actually started making it before Orcs Must Die was even announced, so you could probably imagine our surprise when it came out o_0 lol

To be fair there are a lot of games that blend third or first person combat with any number of strategy elements. Nothing is ever wholly original in every way, especially when you try to view games through the limited lense of genre.

In the case of Sang-Froid, it is obviously not an Orcs Must Die clone (clones usually copy the artistic-style anyways if the point is to draw attention.) Like several other games right now, Sang-Froid is INSPIRED BY the idea of blendng tower-defense/strategy games and action rpgs. In the case of Sang-Froid though, it's setting and roots in Canadian folklore are a big part of it's originality as well as the way it blends different strategy and action rpg mechanics.

Besides, if you are going to make this about whom came first, I could try arguing that Orcs Must Die copied Dungeon Defenders in the first place.

It's a pretty small genre at this point - there's another first-person TD involving mechs and mutant televisions or something but I think these three are about it right now.

And despite the obvious similarities I just can't put DD in quite the same category because it feels less first-persony to me. Now I suppose the same can be said about OMD (not first-person) but I've been playing that for so long I don't even "see" my character any more, it just feels like first-person play.

I think it's a really fun way to play and hope more developers start exploring it.
