Dark Fairy Tale Platformer Woolfe: The Redhood Diaries Coming to PC, PS4, and XBO in Q1 2015
Belgian studio GRIN has been hard at work on its first independent title, Woolfe: The Redhood Diaries, since receiving support from the Flemish Game Fund in May 2013, and it's just about ready to show off the game publicly. Woolfe is a 2.5D side-scrolling platformer that takes a "non-sugarcoated" and twisted look at the pre-Grimm, French fairy tale Little Red Riding Hood. Players control a vengeful Red Riding Hood seeking to eliminate her demon, B.B. Woolfe, across various dark fantasy locations, "including dangerous smoke-spewing factories, charming medieval villages and woodland landscapes twisted by evil forces."
Woolfe: The Redhood Diaries will be playable for the first time publicly at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany from August 13-17. It'll simply be a pre-beta, single-level demo, but there will be a special "high score challenge" with the top scorers winning limited edition Woolfe Gamescom prizes. GRIN also released some cosplay reference images for those that would like to cosplay as the game's protagonist, promising "something extra special" for those that do. The game is expected to release sometime during Q1 2015 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The game was greenlit on Steam just five days after its Steam Greenlight page went live.
