Creepy Tale is a short platform game with elements of adventure game, kept in a dark atmosphere, inspired by Grimm Brothers' fairy tales. Creepy Tale is developed by Creepy Brothers, an independent studio, which originally released it on Steam. In July of the same year, the game also hit the Nintendo Switch console. In this case, its release was handled by Polish company No Gravity Games.
It's late autumn when two brothers decide to go mushroom picking in the forest. They are lucky because there are plenty of mushrooms and they both manage to fill their baskets to the brim. As they walk through the fog-shrouded landscape, they suddenly notice a beautiful, luminous butterfly. They decide to run after it, finally reaching a small wooden hut. The creature flies in through the open door, and the main character's brother follows it without hesitation. As soon as it disappears inside, the door immediately slams shut. Peeking through the window, the protagonist is horrified to discover that his brother has been captured by two, ghastly creatures. He has no choice but to get inside and free him.
Creepy Tale is a game which combines adventure and platform game elements, so there's a lot of exploration, arcade sequences and various tasks and puzzles.
During his expedition, the hero encounters a lot of often hostile creatures. From some of them he has to hide or run away, others he has to neutralize with the help of specially prepared potions. Some of the creatures, however, turn out to be harmless, and their support can even be helpful in overcoming certain sections of the game.
Visiting subsequent locations, the player also has the opportunity to collect useful items, which after collecting are displayed at the bottom of the screen. Some are used to eliminate traps, while others are used to solve more complex tasks. Some items can also be used several times, for example when overcoming certain obstacles. Interactive purple mushrooms also appear in the game, which act as trampolines, making it easier for the hero to get to higher platforms.
The game features 2D graphics, kept in an old-school cartoon style, and the events presented in it are shown in side-scroll view. The fairy-tale atmosphere of the game is additionally built by the matching soundtrack.
