It Lurks in the Woods (Video game)

As the creator.

It Lurks in the Woods, or Elle Rôde Dans l’Bois by its original name, is a short horror game based on French Canadian folklore.

New France, 1682. A man is traveling from Ville-Marie to Trois-Rivières. The woods are a dangerous place. No one should wander in alone, but his dying brother needs its aid. On the road, as the sun settles down, something attacks him. It wasn’t an animal, or a man. It was something else. To save his brother’s life, he’ll have to find a way out before the night falls. But what lurks in the woods?

It Lurks in the Woods was greenlit in late 2016 and released on Steam in early 2017. It is now available for free. The development began as a class project which allowed me to learn the basics of the Unity engine, but quickly became more than that. Over 1,700 people played it since its release.
