Woolfe – The Red Hood Diaries Is Out For Vengeance

Woolfe7

I’ve always found the darker side of fairy tales interesting. Not everything is roses, glitter and happy endings. There are some seriously dark and twisted stories out there, especially if you seek out the original versions. What I love about video games is that people like me but with more talent decide to bring these twisted stories to life for us to engage and become a part of. This holds true with Woolfe – The Red Hood Diaries. This cinematic platformed is being brought to life by those at the GRIN GameStudio.

Join our heroine, Red Riding Hood, as she seeks out the real reason behind the death of her father. Red and her Granny were told that Red’s father Joseph died in a work accident at Woolfe Industries, where he was a lead engineer. Now as a grown woman, she heads out of the safe comforts of her gram’s home in the forest to head back into the city, which she finds paralyzed with fear and tainted by innumerable kidnappings. Unafraid and determined, Red fearlessly goes against an army of ever present henchmen, ultimately going for the head of it all, B.B. Woolfe, the CEO of Woolfe Industries and learning he has more dark secrets than anyone could have ever imagined.

For those interested in checking this out, you can expect it sometime in 2015, but if you want to help it in the meantime, you can check out their Kickstarter for a lot of details on the game. Some key features to this twisted fantasy universe are: 2.5D side scrolling gameplay with rewarding environmental puzzles, combo based hack ‘n slash combat with her trusty axe, twisted and deranged versions of many familiar faces, such as The Pied Piper and Pinocchio boss battles, and a rich, multi-layered artwork that’s inspired by the likes of Tim Burton and Anton Pieck.

I see a LOT of potential in this game after reading up on it a bit. I love twisted takes on traditional stories like this. Woolfe – The Red Hood Diaries will be coming to Steam Q1 2015, and PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Q2 2015. If you check out their kickstarter, let me know what you think below.

My name is Felicia but many just call me Lixx or Scilixx. I’ve been a gamer since I could sit up and play Asteroids on Atari. I became hooked immediately and have had a longterm love affair with video games. Of course, Atari wasn’t enough for me. I branched out into every generation after that. I still own them all, over 20 different working consoles. To quote Gollum, they are “my precious.” But I will admit, lately I have become a very healthy member of the PC Master Race. Do not despair, I’m not really much of a fan-girl to anything in particular. I like anything that gives me enjoyment. Whether its on a PC, console, handheld or even phone, I don’t care. I will play it. Currently some of my favorite games include Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate & Fire Emblem (3DS), Soul Sacrifice & Toukiden (PS Vita), Diablo 3 & Borderlands 2 (PC). And yes, I generally will play multiple games throughout the day. If I go without gaming for a day, stay out of my way, I will not be in a very jolly mood. Outside of gaming, I enjoy a good fantasy novel, violent tv shows (Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire), and folding origami. :3

Have your say!
