The fear of the unknown is powerful. Darkwood takes that idea to heart: it's a top-down procedurally generated survival horror game. This means that every time you play, you'll experience something different.

Adding to the tension is the fact that the game features roguelike elements and permadeath. You'll also be able to craft items, build barricades, and naturally, explore.

The footage above is of Darkwood in a pre-alpha stage, but even this early on, you can see both the eerie atmosphere and some of the mechanics in-play. Looks like a game to keep an eye on.
