Indie horror The Path launches

Artistic, calm, introverted, 10 bucks.

Indie outfit Tale of Tales has released its PC horror game, The Path.

The Path can be picked up for USD 10 (GBP 7) from the Tale of Tales website, Steam or Direct2Drive.

The Path, inspired by Little Red Riding Hood, follows the journeys of six girls sent to their grandmother's house, one by one. Alone on the errand, exploration of the forest soon tempts the girls, and plenty of rewards await the curious. But within each forest lives a wolf - one whose appearance and intent will not always be apparent.

Tale of Tales describes The Path as "a calm and introverted computer game that finds itself a cosy place in the dark corners of your soul". Apparently The Path explores the artistic potential of the medium, focusing on slow and considered options rather than fast and frantic reactions. The arty screenshots and videos look promising.

Head over to The Path gamepage to find out more.
