We are all about reviewing games, especially from Indie Developers. This is one that we loved!
IndieGame spotlight is on Darkwood by Acid Games and Crunching Koalas.
For our full review visit the link in our bio. "No hand holding or linear paths. Think, learn and adapt - if you behave recklessly or do not prepare for the night, you will not survive. Each choice you make is permanent and will have an impact on you, or Darkwood's inhabitants. Every time you play, you will see a different story unfold. A breathing, procedurally generated world for you to explore. Each visit to Darkwood is unique, as all locations and events are randomized."
For starters, Darkwood is scary as Hell, and in a very unsettling way, because it's not your usual terror engine. Sometimes it's not about the things you can see, it's about the things you can hear, and the audio of Darkwood, combined with the often pitch-black environment, makes for a nail-biting scene.
Darkwood is a game about survival, exploration, and fear, set in mysterious woods somewhere in the territory of the Soviet Bloc. It is a top-down, free-roam, surreal horror experience with a randomized world, taking cues from classic games, where oftentimes you had to figure things out for yourself. By blending RPG, roguelike and adventure elements together with a challenging difficulty, Darkwood aims to please players craving for a deep and rewarding experience.
