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).

    b0vril yea, I don't really know how emulation works. (13 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite The CPU will probably have multiple compatibility layers, replicating each architecture. Most likely just for PS3 and 4. Any decent CPU within the last decade has the PSX covered. (17 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @KORNdog: Probably an architecture thing, or something to do with the bios. Most emulation is brute forced. There's a good reason why the likes of PS3 are only now being efficiently emulated. (17 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog Bit isn't that just like any emulator? Isn't a SNES emulator on a modern PC pretending to be that old hardware to give more accurate results during emulation? (22 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @b0vril: what I don't understand about it is everything I've read says it lets the CPU "pretend" to be the native CPU of the console it's running backwards compatible games for. (22 Hours ago)
