For many, the game Darkwood, despite its somewhat menacing name, has given light to how survival-based games should be. More and more people?are now making claims and saying that, by the time?that year 2018 rolls in, all the games will either be rogue similar to Metroidvania, a kind of Ubi-style murder simulator, or a survival-based game akin to Day Z.
This first ever title of Acid Wizard is down into these genres, having been described as a game that is not only set in an open world, but full of surreal horror experiences as well.
To top it all off, the new trailer of the game, which features slightly interactive elements, displays how appealing, interesting, and eye-catching the uncanny inhabitants, and the unusual and weird setting of the game are. Yes, it is true that the popular horror PC games such as Outlast and Amnesia gave gamers and horror fans with a dose of action as well as choose-your-own-fate events, Darkwood brings a lot more ? something evident in the interactive trailer set to be unveiled today.
Today, the Darkwood trailer will show off around three minutes of footage of the gameplay. Aside from showing some of the action from this ?Steam Early Access title, the video also displays some of the ?choose-your-own-adventure? features. In this aspect of the game, the decision that will determine the player?s fate will entirely be based on his or her choices. This brings to mind the Goosebumps books published many years ago wherein the readers are provided with options on what they should do next.
Today, July 24, 2014, the interactive trailer of the much awaited Acid Wizard’s Darkwood will finally be made available on the PC, Mac, and Linux platforms. It can be accessed by players and fans via the Steam Early Access.
