Darkwood for PC is a survival horror game in which the action is shown from the aerial perspective. This is the first commercial production of a Polish studio, Acid Wizard.


The gameplay is divided into two stages. During the night we have to defend our home against the forces of darkness. However, during the day we go to explore the nearby forest in search of materials to effectively repel enemies after dark. Contacts with superhuman beings are not without an impact on the psyche of the protagonist. With time, he begins to sink into madness, and it is increasingly difficult for him to tell what is true and what is just insane hallucination.

Darkwood for PC is a survival horror taking place a in procedurally generated world with an open structure. The whole thing is very demanding, and the player is never guided by the hand. Instead, the survival is not an easy task and requires both good reflexes and the ability to adapt quickly to changing conditions. If you die, all game saves are deleted. This does not mean, however, that the next game will be started from scratch. Instead, some of the achievements from the previous session will proceed to the next incarnation of the hero.


The game engine each time generates a different map layout and fills it with new events. The game is enriched with RPG elements. In time, our hero will gain new skills that will help him survive. In addition, there is also a crafting system. With its help you create new items, strengthen your home security, build barricades, construct traps, and improve possessed objects.
