Welcome to that special feature that we call Super Rare Gems,” a small segment where we talk about the physical releases of games published by Super Rare Games. With a large library of titles under their belt and tons of limited releases that have sold out and Miketendo64 providing them with some extensive coverage on the site, we want to take the time to highlight the games they currently have left in stock, and who knows, you might just discover the next indie gem you want to pick up? So, please join us as we provide you with a ton of details on Darkwood by developer Acid Wizard:

Darkwood is a challenging survival horror that does not rely on jump scares.

Craft weapons, prepare traps, fortify hideouts – you will explore and scavenge the eerie forests of the Soviet Bloc by day, then hunker down in your hideout at night. With nightmarish forces corrupting the woods, wait and pray for the sun to come up the next morning.

Wade through the grueling, bizarre world of Darkwood and delve into the creepiest secrets of its inhabitants to escape the infested land before it destroys your body and consumes your mind.

– No jump scares: an atmospheric horror experience that creates a feeling of tension without cheap horror tricks.

– Day and night cycle: roam the corrupted woods by Day and use your hideout to seek survival during the night.

– Randomly generated map and events: the world will vary for each play-through and each player.

– Crafting: scavenge for materials to upgrade your hideout and create weapons, traps or potions.

– Skills and perks: develop your character by injecting a strange essence into your bloodstream.

– No hand holding: test your skills and figure out things on your own!

– Branching storyline: shape the world of Darkwood and determine the fate of its inhabitants.
