Through the Woods features dynamic narration that tells the story in the present, putting the player’s actions in the past. As a mother is interrogated concerning her missing son, the tale that unfolds has already occurred. The player controls the past and shapes the story of the present.  

Audio design is part of the game’s core mechanic. Creative use of light and darkness will make your expectations play tricks on you.

Experiencing the game will leave players feeling as if they’re waking from a nightmare. Be afraid of what happens as you’re walking through the woods, but prepare to be petrified of what’s on the other side.  

Through the Woods is Kickstarter-funded and has been Greenlit. Look for the game on PC/Windows in Q1 2016.

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.
