Mable & The Wood is a 2D action/exploration game set in a land where the overuse of magic is draining the world of its color.

You play the part of a shape-shifting girl who can take the form of the beasts that she slays, but whose power is slowly destroying the world she is trying to save. The use of different forms requires magic that can only be restored by slaying the creatures of the wood. Is it any wonder they've turned on you?

Explore the world to find the source of the darkness before the forest dies. Will you banish the darkness from the world, or will you become it?

Unlike most Metroidvanias Mable does not allow players to run, jump and kill on their own. Instead, they must use non-human forms to attack creatures and traverse through difficult challenges.

Players with less violent intent can find secret paths to complete Mable without killing anything, including bosses.

Get ready to slay monsters and take their form as Graffiti Games and Triplevision Games announce that Metroidvania game Mable & The Wood will release on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and Steam (PC) this summer.

Mable is a game where players have free reign to make decisions on how they want to play the game,” said Andrew Stewart, Founder of Triplevision Games. “They can choose to kill everything, or they can play the entire game without killing anything, including bosses. Depending on the decisions made, players will encounter one of the multiple endings.”

Key Features

  • Free Reign Players are free to make decisions on how they play and who they slay.
  • Combat is Movement - Mable isn’t strong enough to lift her magical sword, so she must use it in unique ways to help move through the world. Players can use non-human forms to harm enemies for a limited time, but vanquishing creatures extends her power.
  • Hunt Great Beasts and Take Their Shape - Defeat the great beasts to take their abilities and transform into a giant mole, medusa, spider and more.
  • Explore a Dying World - A large and varied fantasy world, brought to life with state-of-the-art pixel technology and a beautiful original soundtrack.
  • Multiple Endings Mable features different routes to take through the world and secrets to discover that provide players with multiple endings.

Mable & The Wood will release on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and Steam (PC) this summer.
