The award-winning third-person Norse horror adventure, Through the Woods, is going to be shown off at this year’s Gamescom. 1C together with Antagonist have announced that the game is going to have its PC release in October 2016.
Here’s the game’s Steam trailer:
Through the Woods immerses the player in the dark, mysterious atmosphere of a deep forest. The forest is lit only by the moon and a hand torch, in which fear and uncertainty are fed by darkness. The independent Norwegian game studio Antagonist have created a realistic – but supremely eerie – game environment, spiced up with a thrilling story and dangerous mythological creatures.
The game has following features:
- Explore stunning environments and experience stories inspired by Norse mythology, Norwegian art, and nature
- Uncover dark tales of the past and present through reactive narration
- Creative use of light and darkness generate deceptive environments
- A frightening journey, accompanied by grim, beautiful sound design
