First-person mystery adventure The Fabled Woods will be released on PC later this year.

From developer CyberPunch Studios and publisher Headup, The Fabled Woods is a narrative adventure similar to Firewatch, Gone Home, and What Remains of Edith Finch. Players will find themselves in a beautiful forest hiding ugly, terrible secrets. Starting at a forsaken campsite, players will progress through the story by exploring the forest and discovering clues, guided by unknown voices.

From the Steam page:

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.

Features include:

  • Three intertwining narratives to be uncovered, piece by piece, as you hunt for clues as to what happened
  • Explore at your own pace in an experience built from the ground up for fans of the puzzle free, death free storytelling in games such as Gone Home and Firewatch
  • Fully voiced, hear the characters as they impart their tales of strange going ons and mystery to you, the player, all set in a living world built in Unreal Engine technology
