Darkwood Release Date For Linux & Interactive Trailer!

You get a choice at the end of the trailer.

Darkwood is a dark survival game that blends a few different types of games together, and originally Linux was a delayed release, but they actually delayed their own release so that Linux is now a day 1 release. They have now finally given an Early Access release date with a fancy interactive trailer.

I have to say this makes me pretty damn excited to play it. The atmosphere is actually pretty damn good especially with that eerie music. The game launches on the 24th of July, and you can be sure we will be taking a good hard look at it from behind our cushions as we most likely quake in fear of the dark.

The only problem I get with these types of games is eye strain due to how dark they are, does anyone else get that?

Check it out on Steam.

About Darkwood
Darkwood is a game about survival, exploration and fear, set in mysterious woods somewhere in the territory of the Soviet Bloc. It is a top-down, free-roam, surreal horror experience with a randomized world, taking cues from classic games, where often you had to figure things out for yourself. By blending RPG, roguelike and adventure elements together with a challenging difficulty, Darkwood aims to please players craving for a deep and rewarding experience.

The game was funded from Indiegogo around this time last year, and it managed a good $57,323, so it's going to be nice to see what that money has enabled them to do!

Remember though it will be in Early Access, so bugs are incomplete features are to be expected. Article taken from

Whee! Just watched some trailers of Darkwood. It definitely looks interesting; has some eerie atmosphere to it.

I'm looking forward for Halfway at the moment though.
I'll keep an eye on Darkwood for the time being.

Oooh! It looks great. I'll be getting this once it matures (out of Early Access).
