Psssst. Hey, you. I just found out about a new horror game, want to hear about it? Of course you do. The latest indie project to be added to my growing list of reasons why 2015 is going to be a ridiculously good one for indie horror and the folks who enjoy them is the third-person horror-adventure game, Through the Woods — not to be confused with Emily Carroll’s super unsettling horror comic collection of the same name, but I also recommend you check that out, too.
Much like Kraven Manor, Through the Woods started out as a student project before developer Antagonist realized it’s the kind of horror game every genre fan would want to play.
Set on the Norwegian coast, this game tells a very personal story. A human story, and I think we can all agree that that’s something we could use more of. I love shooting zombies in the face as much as the next guy, but a game that follows a mother who’s searching for her lost son sounds exponentially more interesting. Have a look.
You can — and should — follow Through the Woods on Steam Greenlight. It’s currently slated for a fall 2015 release starting with PC, with other platforms, except for mobile, to follow.
