I can´t say that im a huge fan of the “Little red riding hood” story. Sure, i liked the book as a kid. But as i got older, i started to like more dark stories (Alice in Wonderland for ex).
But i might actually give Grins´s Steampunk version of Little red riding hood, a go.
Yes, i´m of course talking about the side scrolling/action platform game “Woolfe: The Red Hood Diaries“. Which (imo) seems like a really nice mix of both steampunk, and the same darkness (and madness) that exists in American Mcgee’s “Alice” series.
So im going to keep a close eye on Woolfe (which btw made it big time on Kickstarter back in September this year) Because i really like the concept, and the Twitch trailer sure made my day.
So, yeah. I can´t wait to give Grins´s “Woolfe” a try!
About Woolfe – The Red Hood Diaries:
Non-sugarcoated steampunk fairy tale, full of drama and dark twists. A vengeful Red Riding Hood confronts her nightmares and demons in a dark sidescroller odyssey.
This dark but magical platform game is filled with winks to familiar fairy tales and visual elements reminiscent of masters such as Tim Burton and Anthony Pieck. Woolfe is inspired by story elements from the original, more cruel pre-Grimm versions of Little Red Riding Hood. More updates coming very soon, but hope you like it already…
