Through the Woods - Now on Kickstarter !
Through the Woods Greenlit
Release date: First quarter 2016


Through the Woods is a third-person Norse horror adventure game set in a forest on the western shore of Norway about a mother and her missing son. Through dynamic narration, you play the mother’s re-telling of the events surrounding her son's disappearance in a setting heavily influenced by Norse mythology and Norwegian folk tales.


* Explore stunning environments and experience stories inspired by Norse mythology, Norwegian art and nature
* Uncover dark tales of the past and present through reactive narration
* Creative use of light and darkness generates deceptive environments
* A journey through beautiful and grim audio design


Antagonist is a small independent studio based in Oslo, Norway, and was founded in 2014. The team is focused on a narrative-driven title, delivering epic stories as an intergral part of the experience.

Odd bugs. Got a Pink screen and the game was stuck at the begging. Just might as well add this. I'll wait till release.

I played the demo(in the dark) and it wasn't even scary. It isn't survival horror, at least not classic, it's behind the shoulder which is modern survival horror and annoying, don't get why it isn't real TPS like silent hill and you can't see anything how dark it is and it's more annoying than anything else.You just walk around for half an hour and it ends. A real survival horror has to have puzzles, and ones that at least make you think a little, a save system, not a checkpoint system that makes everything easy as all hell, challenge and tricky spots that make you decide if you're going to do one thing now or later depending on your health and status, also health. I wont say anything about enemies, maybe they can do something interesting with just this troll thing. I'm not trying to bash on the game, the makers can do whatever the f. they like, I would just like to see a real classic survival horror on pc, and also an actual scary game that can be unpredictable :)

As someone that hates scary games, really hates them, I am absolutely excited for this game and will definitely attempt the hell out of playing this. If you haven't back on Kickstarter, please do so! This game looks wonderful and the storyline seems fantastic!

I hope and can't wait to play!! :D

Backed it, loved the demo. Love the narration system and the atmosphere. Your sound designer is already on my hate list (that's a good thing) for freaking me out like that during the demo :)

Can't wait :)
