Mable and the Wood

The strange cult that resurrected you speak of an ancient prophecy that says you will hunt down the great beasts, take their shape, and use their powers to save this dying world. But what if they’re wrong? The prophecy is old, and words lose their meaning with time … When the world is falling apart around you, what will you do? In Mable & The Wood, it’s up to you to make that choice. You don’t have to kill anyone, but you might kill everyone. Mable & The Wood is an action-platforming adventure game where you can take the form of the bosses that you kill, changing how you’re able to explore the interconnected world. Combat will change everything, but you can also choose not to to kill anyone. The way you move is deadly. Dragging a sword that is too heavy to lift, Mable shape-shifts into a fairy and leaves it where she stood. Recall the sword to your hand once again to slice through any enemies in your path. Will you banish the darkness, or will you become it?
