The horror survival game Darkwood Free Download of the developer studio Acid Wizard, which already exists at Steam Early Access, could be a Roguelike like many others. But the studio does justice to its name: the nameless protagonist lives the horrortrip of his life in a gloomy forest, but still can not leave the fingers of the mushrooms.
What is Darkwood about? As a faceless hero we wake up in a hut in the midst of an uncanny forest. A wolfsman in the hoodie welcomes us and explains that we must drink the crystal water from a well to survive the night. Aha. Then we meet the rest of the crazy ensemble: an ancient chicken woman, a mutilated boy with a violin and Piotrek, who is working on his own rocket. And we inject boiled mushrooms to learn new skills. So far, so puzzling.
The focus in Darkwood Free Download is clear: we must survive the forest and its inhabitants in the top-down perspective and find a way out of the mysterious grove. However, this is more difficult than imagined; we have lost the key to the bunk door or the only escape route. And no one really wants to help us, unless we do the obscure figures a favor. The little violinist is looking for his parents.
The distribution of the forest varies from game start to game start. The developers of Darkwood use the currently popular “Roguelike” mechanisms: randomly generated levels and permadeath. However, we can finally switch off the final screen death in order to explore the mysterious forest in peace.
The survival elements are not very noticeable in the early access version – only the energy of life counts. Hunger, sleep, and mental health do not matter. But for that we get the “thirst” every night, which we can only quench with the water from our well and which otherwise slowly kills us.
At night, however, we should be “at home” anyway, as the horrific forest inhabitants go on hunts. Therefore, we barricade ourselves every evening in our hut. Otherwise, we quickly find a brutal end: firearms are rare and in direct close combat we usually pull the short ones.
During the day, the search for useful utensils takes place. With the found objects we tinker not only barricades, but also other items like lanterns, nail boards and pistols. The crafting system is clearly structured: we open our inventory, we will be shown in a separate window what we can build and how much we need.
With a rudimentary level system, we also learn new skills, for example, to keep animals from us. But this does not go like in most games about experience points, but about collecting mushrooms. In the forest we find a lot of them, which we can boil and inject ourselves. Our mushroom allusion from the entrance is therefore not so far fetched.
