Developer: Antagonist

Publisher: 1C Company

Genres: Horror, Adventure

Through the Woods is a third-person Norse horror adventure set in a forest on the western shores of Norway that tells the story of a mother and her missing son. Through reactive narration, the player experiences the mother’s re-telling of the events surrounding her son’s disappearance. Players follow the path of a terrified woman who has forced herself to enter this terrible place for the sole purpose of finding her son, in a setting heavily influenced by Norse mythology and Norwegian folk tales. With Through the Woods, Antagonist have captured the feeling of the forest as they saw it as children, with all the fear and mystery that comes from roaming through it alone. This is coupled with a powerful story and high quality sound design, which in the darkness of the forest becomes a core mechanic. Through the Woods is a profound experience that directly delivers the feelings of loneliness and loss in a terrifying place...

Through The Woods is a horror game that delivers some good scares, just not really in the way that was intended.

Through the Woods is a sad, haunting tale that manages to scare without being cheap or easy, and one of this year's best horror games.

Folk tales of Through the Woods will scare you, but short and linear gameplay with invisible walls are its weak spots.

I enjoyed Through the Woods even though I’m sure there are quite a few people who won’t.
