Our videos of Through the Woods

Through the Woods is a Walking Simulator with a bit of stealth mechanics as you have to avoid the strange creatures of the Norwegian folkore as you progress into the forest. The game has been developed by developer Antagonist from Norway, and it conveys a pretty solid atmosphere, despite what some consider as some laconic voice-acting on the main character's part. Technically, the character models and animations are obviously dated, but the environment itself looks pretty good, with nice lighting effects with the torchlight when it gets dark. The game features 5 chapters and it should take around 4 hours to complete, as it is usually the case with indie story-driven adventures these days. The following videos only show extracts taken from the first 2 chapters (and Chapter 0, which is actually the game's prolog).

    GriftGFX @Seth: If anything I've heard that Odyssey compounds those issues. I've heard plenty of people say that there's TOO MUCH content. (13 Hours ago)

    Seth I'll keep playing once per week, but the Ubi's usual world building, gigantic maps filled with crap is not changed since last gen and is kinda off putting. (14 Hours ago)
  • Seth
    Seth @AndreasZ94: i do like the more responsive controls of the main characters, but the world is lifeless coming from RDR2, horse controls and animations are laughable and generation behind competition. (14 Hours ago)
  • Seth
    Seth @AndreasZ94: I did tried AC odyssey for a few hours. It's weird, that game is extremely pretty (on PC) and i like some of the side quests and the dialogue choices. (14 Hours ago)
