Woodfarer is a Cologne Game Lab BA1 student collaborative project and still under development.

Find your way and collect spirits of the jungle in a weird post-apocalyptic setting, all while preventing evil spreading around and swallowing what memories remained of the old earth.

Use your compass to locate spirits. Collect 3 spirits and come back to the shrine

Use some help to defeat enemies

Woodfarer is a Forest-Crawling game in which you explore different areas of a cursed forest and gather spirits to lead them to the exit. The surrounding world is always new, and you need to map it out in order to explore it easier. You can use the spirits you've collected to fight off enemies and even solve some puzzles. There are many exploration options in the game, and items to increase your health and a chance to build up your score, incentive to see all there is to be found.

Lovely job! The game is stunning and I was only left wanting to play more. Love the idea of using an unconventional weapon, I think this idea can be explored more if you decide to expand the game! :)


I loved this.  If you make this into a full game I am so throwing my money at you.  Gorgeous!


I really love your game! I have always loved people trying new, fresh, approaches to old formula's and you've done an excellent job! I also look forward to seeing what you do next!


This was such a beautiful game. I managed to explore a little of it, and I can't wait to see what the full game will look like!I really enjoyed this small journey :)

Also, is that little shop thing a sidequest? Or just something that hasn't been added in yet?

Thank you developers for making such awesome cute game! I love it! I love its simplicity and cuteness, the background sounds like the birds chirping feels like i am in a real forest <3 Keep up the good work and I want to play more of it <3 Stay Awesome!


I would love to seem some more development with this! Lots of potential!


The exploration is where it's at. Wrote a little review about Woodfarer! Very atmospheric game.


whats the system requirements?


Very well done, nice short game. It's so atmospheric and beautiful.


this game is gorgeous


It has a bird!


Wish there was some background music to this would make it even more of a calming adventure. You did a great job on this. It reminds me of another game I have played with this type of art style called where the goats are.

Sometimes if you open the compass, you are able to shoot the little wierd bug thing like a machine gun.


Lovely what I've seen so far and I'm sure I haven't seen all in this build. :)
