Acid Wizard Studio

Acid Wizard Studio is a small indie game dev studio from Poland. We are currently working on our first game, Darkwood.

Darkwood – First pre-alpha gameplay trailer!

05 March 2013 by Acid Wizard

After countless hours of work, we are finally ready to show you a kick-ass gameplay trailer from Darkwood! Go grab your popcorn, set the video on fullscreen and 1080p and enjoy!

The video shows the second part of gameplay, in which the player has to defend his home. Things that will help you survive the night include:


These range from simple metallic nets that do not obscur vision, but provide little defence to massive metal plates, which are hard to destroy but also impossible to see through. Apart from requiring certain materials, building a type of barricade requires specific tools, like a hammer or saw.

Power management

If you wish to survive through the night, you will have to provide enough gasoline for your generator, which powers all your electrical devices: lights and traps. The more devices like these you have active at the same time, the more gasoline gets drained. Don’t let your generator get thirsty, or you’ll have to risk going out in the dark..

  1. Gameplay zapowiada się interesująco, a muzyka i dźwięki budują naprawdę gęsty klimat. Kupuję jak tylko się ukaże. Tylko czy nie będę się w nią bał grać?

  2. Do you think in publish in Greanlight??

  3. Looks great! What kind of engine are you using for the game, or are your creating your own?

  4. Your game looks AWESOME (graphically and gameplay-wise), a true achievement! Do you have a Twitter? I’ll definitely want to keep posted.

    Congratulations, both as a player and as a fellow indie roguelike-like game developer! 😉

    If it’s not too much to ask, I’d love to know how you balanced handcrafted locations versus procgen locations! It’s easy to get lost on the track of wanting to randomize everythin, right? 😀
