Darkwood, The Scariest Game I've Ever Seen FeaturedWritten by Mike Tomasson
A super small, and very independent, developer has been working on a rather scary looking survival horror game for the last few years. The catch is that despite not being a triple A title with amazing graphics, Darkwood looks a lot scarier than most games. Darkwood aims to deliver rich game-play with longevity like no other.
Darkwood first caught our eye in early 2013 with a little sneak peak pre-alpha game-play trailer. The trailer managed to capture the game's atmosphere brilliantly and also showcased the rather simplistic yet deep user-interface and game-play mechanics. After doing our research and finding out that Darkwood is mostly about fear of the unknown as opposed to your typical "run away from the monster" game we had to reach out to the developer for more information.
Gustwas Stachasewski, head developer, proudly announced that the game is close to early-access release on Steam and celebrated the occasion by unveiling the new Early-Access teaser.
Darkwood is all about survival, exploration and the fear of the unknown. It is a top-down, free-roam, surreal horror experience with a randomly generated world to make each Darkwood experience truly unique. By blending RPG, roguelike and adventure elements together with a challenging difficulty, Darkwood aims to please players craving for a deep and rewarding experience.
Darkwood will feature a day and night cycle, user friendly crafting system, and a non-linear branching storyline. Every action has a consequence and your sanity will be tested.
There is no date currently set in stone for Steam Early-Access, all we know is soon cannot come soon enough.
