Get Ready for Red! | Woolfe: The Red Hood Diaries launches
March 17 2015 – Antwerp, Belgium /… Developed by GRIN Studios, Woolfe: The Red Hood Diaries is a cinematic fable featuring a vengeful Red Riding Hood, launching with a picnic basket full of fury today on Steam for PC.
Woolfe: The Red Hood Diaries is a surprising take on the classic tale as you know it. All grown up, cried out and armed with an axe, our heroine Red Riding Hood embarks on an odyssey to avenge the death of her parents at the hands of nefarious corporate giant B. B. Woolfe.
Get ready to take Red on an epic journey with good old-fashioned action platforming, fun combo-based hack ‘n slash combat and rewarding environmental puzzles that explore this grim fairy tale fantasy universe.
GRIN’s founder and CEO Wim Wouters said:
“Woolfe: The Red Hood Diaries has been a labour of love for the GRIN team and we are excited to pass the control pad for our unique interpretation of the Red Riding Hood myth to the gaming world.”
- A twisted fairy tale story – GRIN’s take on the Red Riding Hood legacy is not an ordinary bedtime story. Four years ago, Red Riding Hood’s father, Joseph, lead engineer for Woolfe Industries, died in a work accident. At least, that’s what his family was told. All grown up, our heroine is ready to unveil the truth and present the bill for her tragic loss.
- A Rich, Visual Experience – Woolfe‘s atmospheric artwork lets the player explore a rich fantasy universe centered around a city paralyzed with fear and occupied by tin soldiers. Sneak through the slums, descend into the city sewer system, run through the harbor and escape the city into an evil forest, where gravity, wolves and scary fairies are out to get you.
- 2.5D Action-Platforming – The tale’s 2.5D levels combine the simplicity of side scrolling gameplay with three-dimensional puzzles.
- Fast, Axe Wielding Combat – Armed with her trusty axe, Red will need to skillfully execute combos to strike at her foes’ weaknesses.
- Deranged Fairytale Enemies – On her journey, Red faces some bloody encounters with “familiar fairytale faces” such as The Pied Piper, tin soldiers, big bad wolves, scary fairies and – of course – her nemesis B.B. Woolfe.
The first of two fully-fledged, stand-alone yet successive volumes, Woolfe: The Red Hood Diaries is now available on Steam for $9.99 (NA), €9.99 (EUR), £6.99 (UK) and CDN $10.99. Red’s journey will continue in Volume 2, which is scheduled for release on PC during August 2015. Woolfe: The Red Hood Diaries is also planned for release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this year.
