Get ready to take Red on an epic journey with good old-fashioned action platforming, fun combo-based hack ‘n slash combat and rewarding environmental puzzles that explore this grim fairy tale fantasy universe. Here is the new trailer below:
Here we have a new behind-the-scenes video for Woolfe: The Red Hood Diaries from Belgium-based indie dev GriN. The new video reveals the origins of the Woolfe¹s creation when, two years ago, aspiring games developer Davy Penasse applied for a 3D artist job at Belgian-based indie studio GriN. Whilst Penasse was unsuccessful in securing that position, the team at GriN were blown away by a short 3D demo at the end of Penasses portfolio. Featuring a stylised Red Riding Hood character attacked by evil living trees in a dark enchanted forest environment, this 10-second clip became the starting point of what would ventually become Woolfe: The Red Hood Diaries.
GriN revealed that Woolfe: The Redhood Diaries, its non-sugarcoated fairy tale platformer, will be showcased at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany from 13-17 August 2014.
GriN will have a special playable build of Woolfe: The Redhood Diaries in the consumer area at Gamescom.
Woolfe: The Redhood Diaries is a unique interpretation of the French fairy tale, depicting a fearless Little Red Riding Hood as she embarks on a vendetta across a rich fantasy setting – including dangerous smoke-spewing factories, charming medieval villages and woodland landscapes twisted by evil forces.
To celebrate the first public playtest of the early build of Woolfe: The Redhood Diaries, GriN will be running a special ‘high score challenge’, with the top scorers being in with a chance of winning limited edition Woolfe Gamescom
prizes. Cosplayers are also encouraged to turn up as Red Riding Hood and have their picture taken at the GriN photo booth, with the best being shared through the Woolfe: The Redhood Diaries community channels.
GriN founder and CEO Wim Wouters said:
“We’re excited that Gamescom will be the first time that the public will be able to play Woolfe: The Redhood Diaries. Whilst the single level demo is still very much pre-beta it should give Gamescom attendees a taste of what awaits them when Woolfe is released next year – we can’t wait to hear what the public thinks of our dark fairy tale!”
Woolfe: The Redhood Diaries is part of Microsoft’s ID Xbox publishing program, was nominated for a Selected Projects award during Game Connection America 2014, and was fast-tracked through Steam Greenlight.
Woolfe: The Redhood Diaries is scheduled for release on PlayStation 4 later this year.
