The Wild Wood - A new game is coming to the C64 and it looks incredible!


Indie Retro News has always tried to be one of the top ended sites for the latest in retro gaming news spanning across multiple 8bit systems such as the Amstrad, C64 or the ZX Spectrum. So it's with great pleasure to announce as thanks to a heads up by our good friend Retroplay, a new game that is coming to the C64 called ' The Wild Wood '; a game which if you read the information below will surely end up at the top of  your wishlist!


According to the forum thread linked below, The Wild Wood will be the first game in 25 years to have 3 coders working on it, spanning across a team of people such as Achim, Wanax and Zirias (Coders), with sounds and music by NM156 and graphics and design by Hend. As for the story, you must help navigate young Hare on his adventure into the the heart of the Wild Woods! Across moonlit fields, through Ancient Ruins, underground into Cavernous Warrens, explore magnificent Cathedrals, creepy Graveyards and venture deep into the Ominous Woods themselves!


Thankfully even if this is an early heads up, the team behind the game have also shared with the community that they aim to make The Wild Wood the best modern game ever produced for the C64. Containing graphics of a level not seen before on your humble commie and a fully immersive soundtrack, all smoothly put together by our top team of coders featuring huge multi-directional platform levels, fast paced horizontally scrolling sections, big bosses and much more!

It will be squeezed into every byte of a 500k cart and be accompanied by beautiful artwork and superior quality presentation. Production time is currently predicted at 12 months, but things are coming together rapidly!
