    Looks good, and the fact that the developer didn't feel the need to include any combat in the footage bodes well. Just don't have any zombies, please.

    I am going to keep an eye on this. If that was at all indicative of the in game ambience, then this should be quite good.

    Acid Wizard Studio (turns out they're a potato company) has set up an Indiegogo campaing and they're aiming for 40000$ - http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/darkwood . Pretty bold if you ask me, but I hope they succeed.

    Hey guys,

    I'm one of the devs of the game. We have our own forums that recently launched - http://forums.acidwizardstudio.com, but I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have here :)

    Don't worry, the game is not about zombies ;)

    :D Thanks, your also! Is that Melnorme from some kind of HD version? He looks pretty creepy! Anyways, SC2 is probably my favorite game of all time and is a big inspiration for Darkwood in terms of making exploration really deep and satisfying.

    Oh, and the campaign is also available on www.darkwoodgame.com, with links to the presskit and other stuff you might find interesting!

    Hey there, welcome to Codex.

    My main question is: Will there be combat in the game? I certainly hope so. Also, will there be rpg elements? What about magic use?

    One of my fave horror rpgs is Legacy: Realms of Terror (old DOS game from the 90s). Any chance that was an inspiration?

    Finally, are you truly a potato (Polish) company? Just wondering... ;)

    The logo reminds me of Alan Wake.

    The focus on the sound and top down graphics are really good. I wonder how will the monsters behave, can you lure them into traps or use a flashlight on them ;). Is there a sanity meter in the game, probably yes, but interested in this. Voice acting, or plain text?

    :salute:

    Very good feature.

    Hey! Yes, there will be combat, you can check out our pitch video at our site to get a glimpse. No magic in a fantasy way (even though we are wizards and cast spells on a daily basis), but there may be paranormal stuff happening around you. And yes, RPG elements with skills and abilities!

    Can't remember the game you mentioned, sorry.. And yes, we're from Poland. Don't know what that has to do with potatoes? :P


    Thanks, enemies have very different behaviors and will be attracted to certain elements, and can indeed be lured into traps. Don't really know what you mean about using a flashlight on them, but there will be some types that react to light, or sound.. or smell.

    There will be "sanity effects", but no "meter". As gamers we like to immerse ourselves when playing, and a meter telling you "you're kinda normal" or "you have no contact with reality" give away too much. We want you to question a lot of stuff in the game and rarely come with a clear answer, so you'll be encouraged to dig deeper.

    Plain text - we want Darkwood to be closer to reading a book, so your imagination starts working. You can look up some comments to the trailer - almost everyone has a different opinion on what the Kid or Generator characters really are. Thanks to NOT using voice acting, you have a much more personal experience while playing Darkwood, something we really want to put a lot of focus on also using the art style and random generation.[/quote]

    I meant the Alan Wake like thing, where you put light on enemy to weaken him and then do something more lethal.

    It's one of codex memes, where all people from Poland are : x. It's a part of the game here, don't be discouraged by this ;).


    Legacy was cool, although not much loved title from Microprose. But it's clear that you are making a whole diffrent approach.

    Oh, right. I don't think so, as I said some enemies will be afraid of the light, but that';s about it ;)

    Campaign has been doing well lately, 37k from 40k and several days left. The trailers looked to be great and will get the goal.

    What happened here? A little time and they are almost funded. Glad to hear it.

    Little copy-paste from:
    http://www.pcgamer.com/2013/05/11/d...and-primal-terror-with-an-indiegogo-campaign/



    I don't get the difficulty thing. Old games were fun and required bigger skills, but are too hard for us now ? Please explain Gustaw

    For a brief moment I thought Infinitron had actually achieved something of value in his life.

    So, Early Access is apparently over and Darkwood just got released on steam. Anyone play it yet, and is it worth it?
