After crashing release gloomy wood once already, developers Dillon Rogers & David Szymanski and publisher New Blood Interactive decided to do it again. Just this once, they have upgraded the Early Access release to today!
Yep, ahead of the announced September 6 launch, gloomy wood released today on Steam as a Labor Day treat. In fact, you can pick up the Victorian Survival Horror shooter for a cool 10% off from now on until September 12.
Inspired by classic stealth action games Thief, gloomy wood sees you trapped in a Victorian town consumed by an ancient curse. You’ll have to rely on your stealth, your wits, and your various weapons to survive. Armed with a canesword, six-shot revolver, and more, you’ll stay in the shadows as you navigate the city. Just like his inspiration, gloomy wood utilizes a stealth and sound system that tracks the visibility of your light and spreads the sound around the world, so tread lightly.
gloomy wood offers immersive player interactivity. You’ll be leaning in corners to eavesdrop on enemies, peeking through doorways, checking for bullets in your firearm and climbing over ledges. And you will have a lot of items to distract your enemies. The city is full of objects to pick up, throw, climb, destroy and use to your advantage.
