In Darkwood, players face the terror of an unforgiving survival horror experience set in a procedurally generated, open world. As the protagonist, they navigate the eerie forests of a mysterious land trapped in the late 1980s Soviet Bloc, where a plague transforms victims into monsters. By day, players scavenge, craft, and fortify their hideout, while at night they fend off terrifying intruders. With no hand-holding, players must explore, survive, and make difficult choices that shape the narrative, leading to multiple endings influenced by their interactions with NPCs and the unfolding mystery of the forest's origins.
