7) Through The Woods

Ancient Norse ruins meets haunted forest. What could go wrong?

A woman has lost her son in the woods on the shore of Norway. The player relives her experience as she narrates. The forest is dark, oppressively so, and there’s a lot more to it than it seems at first glance. Such as ancient Norse monuments, towns, ruins, and apparently monsters. And then there’s the darkness. In fact, the darkness is so, well, present, that it makes the sound design a major gameplay mechanic.

The overall atmosphere of the Woods can be described as similar to that feeling you get when you went camping as a kid and went out exploring around dusk. The feeling that something’s out there, something you can’t see, but that’s following you and you have to get to a safe place NOW.

Through the Woods is meant to be released in October, and has been highly praised by early reviews of alpha and beta builds. Definitely a horror game to keep on your radar.

If I didn’t know better I’d say I was playing Skyrim…

Oh, cool, a draugr-zombie monster. One of the many horrors you’ll face in your quest to find your son.

A complete playthrough of the demo build.
