There's something wrong with the forest. No matter how bright the sun shines, it remains dark and foggy. It smells like something died. Strange noises fill the rusty air. Squeaks and screeches. The dull thump of someone chopping trees. The wind playing eerie melodies on ghostlike flutes. Shivers run down her spine. She just left the city. Cars can't drive here anymore. Mother told her to go visit grandmother. The old lady lives all alone at the other side of the forest. Quite a walk from here. It's probably best if she stays on the path...

Will you take the path of needles or the path of pins?

Well the trailer is certainly creepy enough what with incoherent giggling and laughing of children and some good music to set the stage, but will the game be any good? Belgo-American game developer Tale of Tales, well known for their original multiplayer game The Endless Forest, were inspired to create The Path by fairy tales, but this time designers Auriea Harvey and Michael Samyn examine the dark side of the stories. What really happened to Little Red Riding Hood in those dark and scary woods?

The music in the video was composed by industrial music diva Jarboe, as will be the complete soundtrack of the game.

At this time, the creators are still reluctant to release much information about the game. Their design process is very iterative and things may change as the development continues. Release is planned for the first quarter of 2008. The game will be distributed digitally. But they have released the following info:
* play six different avatars with distinct personalities
* interact with autonomous characters driven by Drama Princess technology
* unique free-form gameplay: do what you want when you want it
* mix the music in realtime through in-game activity
* lose yourself in an endless forest filled with attractions and atrocities

It looks like this one might make your skin crawl but as with all horror games it could also just put you to sleep. I will be white-knuckled and sitting on the edge of my seat waiting... maybe.
