Darkwood provides a new perspective on survival horror. It is a dark, grim, desperate and creepy world, it feels very inspired and it's easy to get immersed into. The excellent graphics style and sound design work together to make a surprisingly intense atmosphere. The user interface is clear and simple, you won't have much trouble figuring it out.
