About

A Visitor? God, it’s been so long since I’ve had company… Ahem. Hello there. Not a lot of folks come to visit, especially in light of everything that’s happened in these parts.

You see, I came here to find someone who went missing long ago. Someone I thought I might find amongst these trees. That someone was my son. Explore the woods, see if you can try and make sense of this sorry mess. But I must warn you, there are things you may discover that will be difficult and strange to hear, but hear them you must.

Walk the path less traveled, and see what secrets hide among the trees…

Welcome to The Fabled Woods, a narrative adventure. Despite the picturesque beauty, ugly and terrible secrets lurk among the shifting boughs, darkness that no amount of dappled sunlight can erase. Take the first step, and experience an unforgettable journey.

Key Features

  • Three intertwining narratives to be uncovered, piece by piece, as you hunt for clues as to what happened.
