DUSKWOOD IS RELEASED IN EPISODES
We decided to publish the interactive story Duskwood in episodes. Not to annoy you - quite the contrary! It was important to us that you could start right away, even though the game is not finished. While you're already searching for Hannah, solving puzzles and making decisions, we're working on the sequel.
HOW TO PLAY? DECISION GAMES, TEXT ADVENTURES, CYOA? WHAT IS THIS?
You are connected to your friends in Duskwood via chat messenger. This allows you to receive pictures, videos, voice messages and even phone calls. Your answers, choices and decisions influence what others reveal of themselves, whether they like you, and even change the course of the story. This type of role play game (rpg) is also called text adventure, cyoa, decision- or choice games. It belongs to the genre of interactive fiction.
Episode 8 is now available!
Ratings and Reviews
A solid game all around but maybe not for everyone
Duskwood reminded me of Simulacra without all the jump-scares (there’s still some creepy moments). The story is good and it definitely pulls you in but this leads to my biggest issue with the game. The match 3’s that you have to do to progress the game can be frustrating. They’re explained as decrypting files and that’s reinforced in game and as you go you deal with different challenges in the match 3’s. I personally enjoy the match 3’s(until I hit a point where I spend days trying to do the last mini game I need to continue the game and forget what was happening). You can pay to get 60 lives if you really need them but it’s not necessary and that brings to me to something that I’m really happy the devs did. You don’t have to pay to win, if you run out of lives you wait 10 minutes and you’ve got another shot. If you buy premium then you get little story moments that can immerse you more and make the characters feel more real but it’s not necessary to enjoy the game. The characters are played by actors and actresses in moments where you get to watch video calls. All in all my biggest complaint was about the match 3’s but I don’t consider it big enough to drop this to 4 stars but if you don’t like match 3’s or you don’t have much patience it might be a drawback for you.
The Dev team, writers, actors all on point-Duskwood has achieved beyond measure. Immersive- Instagram accounts for the characters. If you spring for the Multimedia pack (just a few dollars), you’ll also get video calls, and can see the character’s in game pictures. BUT, you absolutely do not need it to play the game fully. One drawback to the IRL Instagram accounts: people have posted the whole story on Cleo’s page.
App Dev: OMG. Created by someone as obsessive and methodical as I am. The look, the feel, the flow- all perfect.
NO ADS! Really.
Mini- game: ok. A bit of a gripe here. I get stuck on some of them and can’t progress. I have a hunch this is on purpose to slow gameplay down and give the team time to create new content, but still. EDIT: Those games though!!! I’m in episode five and now they are coming up after every brief convo. I’m spending faaaaaar more time on the Match 3s than on the game 🤬
Writing: WOW- beyond par with any game I e played. I strongly suspect that the writing is done by these characters- it truly feels like these are real people writing the script- I mean like this four person team aren’t just paid actors, they are the creators of the game. When The Vote happened, I was actually upset. Got an in game text, son heard the chime and I said “it’s probably Jessie again”. Most EPIC choose your own adventure book ever written.
I never write reviews, I usually don’t have much to say, but this game is amazing! I found myself playing for hours on end because I couldn’t get enough of the storyline. And I’m a total sucker for good character development and a good fleshed out story, which this game has in spades. The best part is it’s completely FREE. The devs have clearly taken so much time to make this as interesting as possible, and the fact that they aren’t charging for it (unless you choose the premium option which I 1000% suggest - it’s totally worth the money. It’s definitely not required to still enjoy the experience though) is awesome. I don’t even mind the little mini games. Some of them are really hard. I’ll admit, but I’ve played games that are much harder and I usually give up on them and never finish, I’m glad this isn’t that way. The only thing I don’t like is having to wait for a new episode to drop - and that’s only because I have no patience and I’m so interested to see what happens next.
