A new narrative walking-simulator is coming, as we have the announcement for The Fabled Woods coming from CyberPunch Studios and Headup. All for those looking to have a bit of extra fun on the PC around the end of the year. Q4 is the current release window for The Fabled Woods with not much else to go on for when about. We could speculate all day about that but instead will focus on the fact that we also have an announcement trailer to take in and enjoy along with just the words. Is it not always nice when that happens so you can get a little bit of an idea for what is going on besides just a title and a nice picture? Of course, it is.
Buckle up, though, as there is not much to the substance for The Fabled Woods as of yet. Well, besides the little bit of gameplay here that walks us through these beautiful woods that will also hold some other dark secrets. As it goes on to describe, do expect that The Fabled Woods will go along the lines of Gone Home and Firewatch. That should give us a better feel for what to expect when it comes to the narrative side of it all. The bigger of the selling points on all of this currently. I know I am hoping for another mind-blowing story to keep us going where other titles have not.
The Fabled Woods — Announcement
A Visitor? God, it’s been so long since I’ve had company… Ahem. Hello there. Not a lot of folks come to visit, especially in light of everything that’s happened in these parts.
You see, I came here to find someone who went missing long ago. Someone I thought I might find amongst these trees. That someone was my son. Explore the woods, see if you can try and make sense of this sorry mess. But I must warn you, there are things you may discover that will be difficult and strange to hear, but hear them you must.
Walk the path less traveled, and see what secrets hide among the trees…
Welcome to The Fabled Woods, a narrative adventure. Despite the picturesque beauty, ugly and terrible secrets lurk among the shifting boughs, darkness that no amount of dappled sunlight can erase. Take the first step, and experience an unforgettable journey.
