KEY FEATURES:

CHALLENGING GAMEPLAY
No hand holding, tooltips or linear paths. Think, learn and adapt - if you will behave recklessly or do not prepare for the night, you will not survive.

CHOICES & CONSEQUENCES

Each choice you make is permanent, and will have impact on you, or Darkwood's inhabitants. Every time you play, you will see a different story unfold.

SATISFYING EXPLORATION
A breathing, procedurally generated world for you to explore. Each visit to Darkwood is unique, as all locations and events are randomized.

PERKS AND ABILITIES
Improve your character with skills that will give you advantage over your enemies.

CRAFTING
A flexible crafting system which lets you experiment with loot to: create items, build barricades or traps, and improve your gear with addons.

TWISTED ATMOSPHERE
You will start to question your sanity, as the line between reality and nightmarish fantasies will begin to blur.

This is a pretty challenging, yet awesome game! The atmosphere is lovely and horrific! Its darkness makes me want to explore all the places, but its too creepy to lurk about without a torch or even a flare, it makes me worry about what kind of something something might I bump into .___.

I posted my adventure on YouTube: Youtu.be

@RohanNagel1997 Well said, good sir!

Prototyping a brand new world generator for Darkwood. Better paced, more satisfying progression. MUCH EXCITE.

Aug 28 2014, 10:30am

@DRainford probably in the future, it's not a priority at this time.
