How far would you go to save your child? This is the question on which the plot of Through the Woods hinges.

The game begins with a mother recounting horrifying events surrounding her son’s disappearance. Her search for him takes her into immersive and foreboding woods, decrepit cabins and dark caverns as a monstrous mythological creatures lurks in the darkness. 

Anders Hillestad, producer, Antagonist: “We started this Kickstarter campaign to deliver an innovative terrifying experience that breaks the tropes the horror genre has grown stagnant with. Thanks to the support of gamers, Through the Woods will deliver a horrifying experience unlike anything available.”

Antagonist has stated that funding for Through the Woods wouldn’t have been possible if not for the contributions of fellow developers Killbrite Studio and Snow Castle in the campaign’s final days.

Through the Woods will be released for Windows, Mac and Linux in Q1 2016. A demo is available for all three platforms here.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
