GriN have released a new trailer for Woolfe: The Red Hood Diaries, ahead of Gamescom. Their cinematic platform game is said to be full of drama and dark twists.
The new video reveals the origins of the Woolfe’s creation when, two years ago, aspiring games developer Davy Penasse applied for a 3D artist job at Belgian-based indie studio GriN. Whilst Penasse was unsuccessful in securing that position, the team at GriN were blown away by a short 3D demo at the end of Penasse’s portfolio. Featuring a stylised Red Riding Hood character attacked by evil living trees in a dark enchanted forest environment, this 10-second clip became the starting point of what would eventually become Woolfe: The Red Hood Diaries.
The story of Little Red Riding Hood has been told in various forms since the 10th Century, but Woolfe’s interpretation is a dark fantasy revenge story far beyond a modern fairy tale. Following the death of her father, Red dons a cape, picks up an axe and faces her worst fears in a bloody vendetta against the evil B.B. Woolfe, CEO of Woolfe Industries.
Coming to Xbox One and other platforms during 2015.
