Greenlit on Steam late last year, the third-person horror adventure title Through the Woods from Oslo-based indie studio Antagonist is now on Kickstarter in a US$40,000 campaign to complete production of the game.
The developer says:
“Through the Woods is a third-person psychological horror 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.
The interrogation that covers the mother’s tale is never seen, only heard, as the actions unfolding on the screen have already happened. You control the past, shaping the story of the present.
With Through the Woods, we are attempting to capture the forest as we saw it as children, with all the frightening and mysterious feelings of roaming the woods alone. This is coupled with a poignant story and high quality sound design that acts as a core mechanic in the darkness of the forest.”
Antagonist is a small indie game studio based in Oslo, Norway that seeks “to make great story-driven games, without sacrificing gameplay for story.” A diverse team with experience from a wide variety of fields, the studio also collaborates with other high-profile productions.
The project developer is based in Norway. Fundraising ends on 15 June 2015.
