Here’s What to Look Forward in Way to the Woods

About the game

Way to the Woods is a game about two deer that are lost and need to find their way home. It is a third-person adventure game developed by an indie developer.

The interesting thing is that the game is developed by a solo developer Anthony Tan, who is just 19 years old. Tan has been working on this game for quite a long time- five years, to be exact. He has also worked as a visual artist on some other games. Tan, who is based in Melbourne, Australia, has been taking a slow and steady approach to the release of the game. The game was introduced to the gaming world through screenshots in Reddit.

The first trailer of the game was released in 2018. Since then, Tan has released one more trailer, and that was at the E3 show. The game that is being developed for Microsoft Xbox was expected to be released at the start of 2019. The timelines have been pushed, and it is expected that the game will be released sometime in 2020. Its trailer was highly appreciated and has become a favorite with gamers, who are eagerly awaiting its release. It is referred to in gaming circles as ‘The Deer Game.’

The game plot, characters, and storyline

Way to the Woods is an adventure game. The game is in the third-person perspective. The game features two deer. You need to take the deer home, helping them in their journey. The game is set in a post-apocalyptic world. With a lot of devastation that has taken place, human civilization has virtually collapsed. It is a different and unknown world that is featured in the game. A deer and a fawn are lost in this world. There are no humans at all here, which is both good and bad for the two deer.

The deer have come away from home and now wants to return. They need to travel through an arduous path that will take them through different locations. It is a long journey that the deer are embarking on. During the journey, they need to find food to survive and a place to stay and rest. They also need to protect themselves from unknown dangers. As they move ahead in their quest to reach home, there are many questions that crop up. The answers to these questions can be found in this interesting game with amazing music.

The gameplay

The gameplay is all about the journey of the deer and the fawn. There is a wooded area that is mysterious where the deer have to traverse. As they move along, they encounter various animals and other creatures. There is plenty of fish and even a cat that can talk. Some of the creatures they meet are friendly, and the deer understand what is happening in the world through these friendly creatures. Not all they encounter are friendly; some of them can be dangerous. There is danger awaiting the deer, and they don’t know what they are likely to encounter. The deer move through different locations, including a subway that has been totally abandoned.

There is also a shopping center that the deer get to explore. The only thing is that there are no humans around. The landscape may seem like an abandoned world that you need just to explore to find your way out; however, there are enemies to reckon with. Fighting with these enemies is a must to survive. You need to figure out just how to do it. You can find allies to help you achieve your game quest of reaching home.
