The Pathless is a tense, yet atmospheric adventure game based on a mythic story about a Hunter. This Hunter is an experienced archer, accompanied by an eagle, who is on a mission to get rid of a dark curse.

On this supernatural island, you will hunt corrupted souls, discover secrets in the enchanted forest, find ancient ruins, and solve puzzles. Unlike Giant Squid’s meditative game Abzû, the developers added fighting mechanics in The Pathless.

Be ready to take on magnificent creatures!

In the Valley of Gods

In the game, you take on the role of a filmmaker exploring ruins of an ancient Egyptian civilization. However, you and your partner have an objective: “making a seemingly-impossible discovery and an incredible film.” Whatever this discovery is, it will either benefit these filmmakers or place them in a dangerous situation.

FJRD Interactive’s first game title called Among Trees is an adventure game that takes place in a colorful forest.

Although the game appears joyous, you won’t be completely free of danger. You’ll have to scavenge for food and chop down trees while staying out of harm’s way. It’s not just the animals you have to fear, be cautious when exploring in bone-chilling blizzards and unpredictable nights.

You won’t just be a wanderer though since there’s a little cabin in the woods just for you. That will be your home, a home you can expand and unlock game mechanics like cooking skills and tool crafting.

Platforms: TBA. Add Among Trees to your Steam wishlist. Early Access will be sometime this winter.

Release Date: TBA 2019
