The story that you experience will change over time based on the decisions that you make and how you treat the people that you meet. Can you survive? How will you end up?

Are you willing to take the risk? Darkwood is a single player title that offers an immersive experience, with a flexible crafting system and a strong reward curve. Can you survive the darkness, and live to see another day out there in the woods?
