The demo of this third-person psychological horror game is now freely available for Windows, Mac and Linux.
Inspired by Norse mythology and Classic Japanese horror games, Through the Woods draws heavily from the dark folklore and paintings the developers in Antagonist grew up with.
Players will have to face real Norwegian forest Trolls in this demo, and the full game will feature even darker dangers of mythological origins.
Runes based on a real Scandinavian runic alphabet can be found across the island in the demo, if you manage to translate them you will uncover some of the terrible horrors that you will encounter in the full game.
Set on an island off the coast of Norway, Through the Woods tells the story of the extremes a mother would go to in order to save her child. The narrative begins with the mother, Karen, who is being interrogated regarding the mysterious disappearance of her son. Gameplay starts as she recounts the terrible events surrounding this tragedy.
Equipped with only a flashlight, players must help Karen navigate immersive and foreboding woods, decrepit cabins and pitch-black caverns while simultaneously avoiding grotesque mythological abominations as they lead her through the awful recounting of events.
Through the Woods is in the middle of its Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to complete development of the game.
