Om detta spel

There is one rule in the game. And it needs to be broken.
There is one goal. And when you attain it, you die.

Six sisters live in an apartment in the city. One by one their mother sends them on an errand to their grandmother, who is sick and bedridden. The teenagers are instructed to go to grandmother's house deep in the forest and, by all means, to stay on the path! Wolves are hiding in the woods, just waiting for little girls to stray.
But young women are not exactly known for their obedience, are they? Will they be able to resist the temptations of the forest? Will they stay clear of danger? Can they prevent the ancient tale from being retold?
The Path is a game about growing, about changing, about making choices, about accepting the consequences of these choices. A game about playing, and failing, about embracing life, perhaps by accepting death.

Key Features:
The Path is a short horror game inspired by older versions of Little Red Riding hood, set in modern day. The Path offers an atmospheric experience of exploration, discovery and introspection through a unique form of gameplay, designed to immerse you deeply into its dark themes. Every interaction in the game expresses an aspect of the narrative. The six protagonists each have their own age and personality and allow the player to live through the tale in different ways. Most of the story, however, relies on your active imagination.
The Path is designed with accessibility in mind. There are no ticking clocks or monsters to defeat. No hard puzzles will ever halt your progress. Most activities in the game are entirely optional and voluntary. The player has all the freedom in the world to explore and experience.

While The Path does not contain any graphic violence or sexuality, it does allude to these themes. The overall melancholy mood of the game and the potentially unsettling course of events, make The Path unsuitable for children. Despite of its origins in fairy tales, The Path is decidedly a game for the mature mind.
The game features a complete realtime 3D environment that can be explored through third person navigation. The characters in this virtual world, including the player's avatars, are governed by a form of artificial intelligence that gives them some autonomy. As a result, nobody knows exactly what you will encounter on your journeys.
Next to the multi-layered stylized graphics, The Path features a continuous soundtrack composed by goth rock diva Jarboe (ex-Swans). In fact, there are hardly any sound effects in the game. Instead the music is continuously changing according to what is happening in the game. Like the behaviours of the characters, the music too is never exactly the same twice.
For a satisfying experience, it takes about 6 hours to complete the game.

Stämningsfullt, konstigt och obehagligt. Något av det märkligaste och mest minnesvärda jag någonsin upplevt.

I found this game through a Let's Play on Youtube and was intrigued by the gameplay. Even though I watched the Let's Play to the end I found that it didn't take anything away from my own personal experience with The Path. First of all, the sound effects and soundtrack must be experienced while playing; this is a game that weaves the music into the gameplay and story, it's incredible beautiful and ambient, and it can change the surroundings from pleasant to creepy in a stroke. Much of the story and plot depends on the different items found throughout each of the sisters stories, an aspect which can be rewarding as frustrating; whenever you get lost and it's difficult getting back to where you thought you have seen something.
The endings are psychologically very interesting, they can be downright scary to very ambiguous, they certainly depend on the player's view. The sound effects are best experienced through headphones, be aware though that the scary effect goes up considerably when you can hear every little sound coming from the wolf, there are several layers of sounds, I wasn't prepared and I nearly ripped them off my head.
In my opinion the game requires several plays to get it all, as it's easy to miss clues and items, it's also possible to get straight to the goal. With a lot of patience and a will to explore the surroundings on a deeper level than what meets the eyes and this is the game for you.

It waas so wonderful, the scenery interesting, the sense and feeling magical. I completed everything and loved every minute. This needs more attention. 8/10

The Path offers an interactive experience but be warned PAITENCE is a must! Being lost in a forest with a lot of objects around gets you interested of what happens next but collecting over 100 items is not sort of a thing that is fun unless there is something to it, why not add a video clip to every collection that you make? Or did that cost too much or take up too much resources for a game like this? This is like other RPG games where you have to collect stuff in order to get a reward except you don't here more than getting the title "Collected over 100 items".. Sure thing it is a interactive experience but there could have been more to the game.
