Through the Woods is a third-person horror adventure from Norwegian indie Antagonist. Set on the western coast of Norway and drawing on the Norwegian landscape and art history for inspiration, the narrative-driven adventure has players exploring Norse mythology, lore and urban myths, facing creatures both well-known and obscure.

Antagonist is aiming to tell “a deep and personal story that will leave you gutted”. It’s very proud of its dark aesthetic and audio design, and aims to use light and darkness creatively to play with your expectations; players use a flashlight as they navigate the woods, along with other tools found on the way.

The adventure is expected on PC in the third quarter of 2015, and may come to other platforms later.

Check out the first trailer below, and if you like what you say, why not take a gander at the Steam Greenlight campaign?
