To celebrate the upcoming release of Darkwood on the Switch eShop on 16th May, publisher Crunching Koalas has released a new trailer for the game featuring a "pretty epic" custom-recorded song.

Unlike a lot of other releases within this genre, this one promises not to rely on cheap jump scares. This procedurally generated game is "set in a bizarre vision of mid-80s Poland" and is said to be heavily story-driven. The main character wakes up in a forest possessed by strange evil forces and must escape from evil by exploring, scavenging, crafting items and completing quests to fortify his hideout.

If you would like to read more about how this project came about, take a look at an entry on the PlayStation Blog featuring Gustaw Stachaszewski – a co-founder of Acid Wizard Studio (the team behind this release).
