Fabled Woods.

The Fabled Woods, a first-person narrative adventure title, has just been announced by developer CyberPunch and publisher Headup. It's being made for fans of Firewatch, Gone Home, and What Remains of Edith Finch. Built using the Unreal 4 Engine, the game has "dense... fabled woods [that] will make you stop from time to time, just for enjoying a great vista combined with a relaxing audio atmosphere."

Players will find themselves at the center of a bunch of mysteries within a "beautiful woodland." The game will start at an abandoned campsite, and the player will then further progress through the story by exploring the forest, discovering clues, and following unknown voices.

Overall there are "three intertwining narratives" that the players will discover as they hunt for clues on what happened to someone's missing son. There is no rush, though: as the player is free to uncover the game's secrets at their own pace. There are no deaths within the game, just a fully-voiced story that wants to be told... literally. However, despite the game's beauty, there are dark and terrible secrets that lurk within the forest, and it is up to the player to find them and bring them to light.

If you want to check the game out on Steam, wishlist it here. If you want to go to the developers on Discord, be sure to go here. The Fabled Woods will be released on PC in Q4 2020.
