Tale of Tales' ambitious sandbox wanderer comes out on Wednesday. It's an unusual release date, chosen as it marks the tenth anniversary of developers Michael Samyn and Auriea Harvey's first meeting.
The Path is a brilliantly insane game. It pushes the boundaries so far that I'd have almost liked it to be even more insane. It's a game where you guide six iterations of Little Red Riding Hood to their untimely deaths at the hands of a variety of "wolves", in increasingly messed-up conditions. It's only $9.99 on Steam, and it's a game everyone should really try out. Even if it's not to your liking, it's hardly a huge waste of money.
You can read my thoughts here. Please do.
EDIT: You can also read someone else's thoughts here. While I secretly think my opinions are the right ones, it's interesting to see the heavily contrasting responses to this game. This guy felt it exploitive, tacky and tasteless. I disagree, but that's fine. But he didn't like the way it looks?! Man!
Trailer, narrated quirkily by Jarboe from 80s experi-goth outfit Swans. She composed the soundtrack for the game.

I think I would probably play this game if I had decent hardware or time.
But I don't!
