About Darkwood

Darkwood provides a new perspective on survival horror, with a terrifyingly haunting experience that doesn’t rely on jump scares, presented in a top-down view for a unique twist on scares.

💀 Scavenge and explore the rich, ever-changing free-roam world by day, then hunker down in your hideout and pray for the morning light.

💀 No hand-holding or quest markers. Test your skills and figure things out on your own!

💀 Gain skills and perks by extracting a strange essence from mutated fauna and flora and injecting it into your bloodstream. Watch out for unexpected consequences…

💀 Each choice you make is permanent, and will have an impact on you, or Darkwood’s inhabitants. Every time you play, you will see a different story unfold.

💀 Meet eerie characters, learn their stories and decide their fate. And remember – don’t trust anyone.

💀 As nights go by, the lines between reality and nightmarish fantasies begin to blur. Are you ready to step into Darkwood?

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!
