Blacktail is an action adventure game with RPG elements, inspired by legends about Baba Yaga. The game was developed by The Parasight studio from Cracow.

Plot

The main protagonist of the game Blacktail is Yaga - a sixteen-year-old girl, who was accused of witchcraft and banished from her settlement. The protagonist found a shelter in the forest, but she didn't enjoy relative safety for long, as the thicket quickly became haunted by ghosts from her past. When her old friends disappear under mysterious circumstances, Yaga decides to come out of hiding and try to unravel the mystery, confront her own demons and, as a result, gain powers that ordinary mortals never dreamed of. Whether the young witch will become a guardian of the forest or a nightmare that inhabits it depends on our decisions.

Mechanics

In Blacktail we observe the action from a first person perspective (FPP). Wandering through the picturesque, yet full of dangers forest, we complete tasks pushing the plot forward and various side quests. On our way we face numerous enemies, with which Yaga copes by using a bow and an enchanted glove. By defeating some of the phantoms, the girl regains her lost memories, which are presented in the form of simple, side-scrolling mini-games. Our actions are constantly evaluated by the morality system, which affects the protagonist and her abilities, and determines how other characters relate to her.

It is worth remembering about collecting resources used for making arrows and potions. In addition, by collecting Grimoire cards and brewing potions, we gain new skills that are useful in combat. In addition, there are various treasures and fragments of Slavic legends waiting to be found, which deepen our knowledge of the presented world.
