Kickstarter Campaign Successful for Through The Woods – June 16, 2015
Through the Woods Announcement Teaser, Screens, Info – April 21, 2014

Through the Woods is a 3rd-person horror adventure, the story of which has been influenced by Norse mythology and Norwegian folk tales. It’s been a month since the successful Kickstarter campaign for the game came to an end, and developer Antagonist has been hard at work. Read on…

Three new enemies have been designed; a start has been made on in-game music, and team members have appeared on NRK, Norway’s national TV station, discussing female leads in games.

Creature AI systems as well as a bird behavior system complete with crows have been added; a start has been made on stealth mechanics, and there’s been “a massive graphics overhaul with the help of our fully custom textures, SpeedTree, the Substance series, new custom assets, Sonic Ether’s ambient occlusion, and a beautiful, brand new, fully custom water shader.”

Now… Thanks to Playfield, Antagonist has a shot at getting a stand for Through the Woods at Gamescom in August. To that end, Antagonist is requesting your vote through its Antagonist Playfield page. Once there, all you need to do is click “Follow,” sign in (via Facebook or email) and click “I’d Play.”

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. "I put my heart and soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process." - Vincent Van Gogh "I need solitude for my writing; not like a hermit - that wouldn't be enough - but like a dead man." - Franz Kafka "I've been to hell and back, my boy." - Susan Ashworth, The Cat Lady
