Belgian indie project Woolfe – The Red Hood Diaries has received a short new gameplay trailer, featuring a preview of its forest environment. It mostly goes over platforming elements in a darker setting.
Segments are made up of decaying paths, rocks and structures in a diverse color scheme with a faded touch to it. To complement this, brighter coloring hazes are added to the scene. Red Riding Hood, the protagonist for the game, maneuvers freely and can be seen performing a few jumps. There are also sporadic puzzle and combat elements.
So far, Woolfe – The Red Hood Diaries is still mostly a visually impressive title. We played some of it a few months ago and found the 3D movement on a side-scrolling plain to be a bit tricky to handle. Since it’s possible to move any which way, having depth be a factor while negotiating platforms can sometimes create a few nasty slips. Hopefully, there will be some resistance when meeting edges, as this forest sections seems to have a ton of gaps to jump over. It is, however, an added bonus when it comes to otherwise straightforward combat, since it adds positioning to the design.
Woolfe – The Red Hood Diaries was recently approved through Steam Greenlight. It’s headed to PC somewhere this year.
