Darkwood is available on Steam Early Access!
New trailer, Early Access launch date
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 oftentimes 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.


No hand holding or linear paths. Think, learn and adapt - if you will behave recklessly or do not prepare for the night, you will not survive.

Each choice you make is permanent, and will have impact on you, or Darkwood's inhabitants. Every time you play, you will see a different story unfold.

A breathing, procedurally generated world for you to explore. Each visit to Darkwood is unique, as all locations and events are randomized.

Improve your character with skills that will give you advantage over your enemies.

A flexible crafting system which lets you experiment with loot to: create items, build barricades or traps, and improve your gear with addons.

You will start to question your sanity, as the line between reality and nightmarish fantasies will begin to blur.

I gauge the scariness of horror games using my patented Curl Chance™ system, which measures how likely I am to curl into a ball of whimpering fear when I play them. I rate the new trailer for Darkwood, an upcoming top-down survival horror title from indie group Acid Wizard Studio, a “Mommy” out of 10 based on the inky shadows and surreal sense of unease.

Darkwood is a promising top-down horror roguelike that has cult classic written all over it

It’s been SLENDER pickings in the survival horror genre recently but Darkwood has my fear-glands tingling and, disturbingly, salivating. My internal organs are swimming in terror-juice

The fear of the unknown is powerful. Darkwood takes that idea to heart

This is an amazing game and the decisions made during play can for some people be heart wrenching. This simply goes to show the well thought out approach to Survival Horror this game has. If you like scary games give it a shot. You won't be disappointed just sullen...especially after the 1st 15 minutes of playing.
