Watch the pre-alpha trailers from 2013:
„I gauge the scariness of horror games using my patented Curl Chance™ system, which measures how likely I am to curl into a ball of whimpering fear when I play them. I rate the new trailer for Darkwood, an upcoming top-down survival horror title from indie group Acid Wizard Studio, a “Mommy” out of 10 based on the inky shadows and surreal sense of unease.”
„Darkwood is a promising top-down horror roguelike that has cult classic written all over it”
„It’s been SLENDER pickings in the survival horror genre recently but Darkwood has my fear-glands tingling and, disturbingly, salivating. My internal organs are swimming in terror-juice.”
„The fear of the unknown is powerful. Darkwood takes that idea to heart”
„Holy shitfu*k, this game looks amazeballs”
No hand holding or linear paths. Think, learn and adapt - if you will behave recklessly or do not prepare for the night, you will not survive.
