story

Your name is Gilbert, and you have spent your whole life in a small town, its walls surrounded by an unsettling, aggressive, and dark wilderness. The woods outside the city walls are home to Wyrmvines, hybrids of plants and animals fused into a deadly abomination by a long forgotten, blasphemous sorcery.

The town is safe ... for the time being. However, you find little joy here, as you are no more than a drifter, a man with no family, no home, and no place in the world. All you have is what happiness you share with Sevillia – the only person in this misty town that sees you as more than yet another homeless wretch.


Yet, powers you know little about plot to claim the smallest measure of comfort which destiny has not yet taken away from you.

For what lies beyond the town walls calls upon you and tugs at the strings of your fate in ways both subtle and irresistible. The time of grueling trials draws near. Be ready!


Escape Tales: Children of Wyrmwoods features the dark and twisting story of a young man whose fate is beset by both the most mysterious of powers and by the tyranny of evil men. Prepare for a gripping story filled with plot twists and numerous surprises, astonishing exploration, and riveting puzzles. Faced with deeply personal choices which will influence the tale, take a step into a grim fantasy world where little is what it seems at first.
