Fiddler’s Wood is a tense and atmospheric retro styled black and white folk horror game where you find yourself stranded in a strange woodland that’s said to belong to the fairies.
Created for the HPS1 Halloween Jam 2020, you start Fiddler’s Wood on a highway after a car crash has left you stranded. A little walk up the road brings you to a place called Coill Fidléir (a.k.a. Fiddler’s Wood). According to local folklore it’s a place that contains dwellinging that belongs to the fairies and very few people who venture into the nearby woodland have ever made it out..
Taking around 10 minutes to play through, Fiddler’s Wood is a well crafted little horror game with a great retro aesthetic and tons of atmosphere. You’re never sure what you’ll encounter next as you explore the woodland and fairies make for a very unique antagonist. More Tinker-hell than Tinkerbell!
