Darkwood is a challenging survival horror that does not rely on jump scares. Craft weapons, prepare traps, fortify hideouts - you will explore and scavenge the eerie forests of the Soviet Bloc by day, then hunker down in your hideout at night. With nightmarish forces corrupting the woods, wait and pray for the sun to come up the next morning. Wade through the grueling, bizarre world of Darkwood and delve into the creepiest secrets of its inhabitants to escape the infested land before it destroys your body and consumes your mind.

Constantly tense and surprisingly varied, Darkwood offers a new take on the tired genre, one that never relies on needless scares and cheap tactics to set its captivating, grim atmosphere. Here, you’re simply thrown to the unknown and left to fend for yourselves by any means necessary, with no hand-holding whatsoever, and no easy way out. Despite a few issues, Darkwood offers everything a great survival horror should, and more besides.
Darkwood is a very unique experience that relies on darkness and silence frequently, causing your own imagination to run wild and fill in the horrific gaps. There's a bit of a learning curve to get comfortable with how the in-game world operates, but once things click, you'll be enamoured. Survival horror fans definitely need to give this one a go.
A los rasgos habituales de todo roguelike (niveles procedurales, complejidad, profundidad...), Darkwood suma una trama fascinante, un nivel de desafío que respira el aroma de la vieja escuela y una ambientación de survival horror difícil de superar. El control y sistema de combate tienen camino por recorrer y no es un juego apto para todos, ni mucho menos. Por momentos es confuso, implacable, sombrío, feroz, agotador y hasta torpe. Pero quizás sean precisamente estos elementos lo que hacen del juego una propuesta tremendamente desafiante y satisfactoria.
