Super Rare Games is partnering up with Acid Wizard Studio and Crunching Koalas to bring a physical release of the acclaimed survival horror game, Darkwood, to the Nintendo Switch. If you want one you’ll need to act fast, as only 5,000 copies will be available globally! It goes on sale on October 8th at 10am PT/1pm ET (or 6pm BST) for $31. This package includes a full-color manual and interior artwork, as well as three trading cards and an exclusive sticker. The trading cards you get are randomly selected from a five-card set.

 

Darkwood‘s haunting experience gives you new perspective to survival horror with its top-down visuals. You’ll need to explore a constantly changing world and scavenge what you can, but you’d better hunker down and stay in to survive the cold dark of night. Your every choice has an impact on you or the inhabitants of Darkwood, so the game unfolds differently each time. You’ll meet spooky characters and be able to learn of their stories, but beware. It is unwise to trust anyone in this world, and so you will decide their fate.

The game will not hold your hand with quest markers, so survival is all on you. You can extract a strange essence from the mutated fauna that populate the world. They can be injected into your blood, but may have certain unexpected consequences… Extracting the strange essence also helps you earn skills and perks.

As the nights in Darkwood continue to pass by one after another, the line between reality and nightmares becomes increasingly indiscernible. What will you do? You can find out more about the game at the official website.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called Pre-Computer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode (a bare-bones version of BASIC) which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer, which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the Unity 3D game engine (a powerful and easy-to-use engine) and learning 3D modelling in Blender.

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
