Description

Through the Woods is a third-person Norse horror adventure set in a forest on the western shore of Norway about a mother and her missing son.

With Through the Woods, Antagonist have captured the feeling of the forest as they saw it as children, with all the frightening and mysterious feelings of roaming the woods alone.
