Belgian developer Grin released a demo on Steam for their upcoming game, Woolfe: The Red Hood Diaries. It has three snippets of levels that were originally made for Gamescom 2014.
You may also have seen the game pass by during the press conferences this summer. It was then that the game was revealed to be headed to Xbox One as well.
Woolfe: The Red Hood Diaries is a side-scrolling platform game with combat elements. In the future, the game will add more content, such as a story, upgrade system, unlocked content and so on.
In the demo, three environments offer a focus on their own gameplay elements. For instance, the Heavy Metal stage is a simpler platform affair with little depth.
Going to Meaner Pastures takes a jab at the game’s combat mechanisms, though they’re straightforward for now. You can dodge or perform a light or heavy attack.
For the puzzle segments in the game, try The Sewer Side. It also involves more 3D depth, since this is more than just a side-scroller.
It’s advised to use a controller when you play the Woolfe: The Red Hood Diaries demo. In particular, some tricky jumps may work better with the more precise feel of a controller, though a keyboard layout worked adequately for us as well.
The demo for Woolfe: The Red Hood Diaries is being handed out for Halloween. It wants to follow up on the spooky theme, since the visuals of the game twist the classic fairy tale into a darker atmosphere, if just visually for now.
