'The Darkest Tales' (ALL) Announced - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Sept. 14, 2020 @ 7:00 p.m. PDT

The Darkest Tales chronicles the gloomy and sinister adventures of a stuffed bear named Teddy on a quest to rescue his owner Alicia from the realm of grisly dreams and distorted fantasies.

Players are invited to embark on a grim journey together with a determined plush toy named Teddy on the quest to rescue his owner Alicia from the world of corrupted fantasies and somber nightmares.

Who else should fight a grown-up kid's life if not her worn out and long-forgotten toy?

The Darkest Tales is a hardcore and exciting adventure full of familiar characters and noir landscapes. Transported to the far side of “happily ever after," players will learn about the Little Red Riding Hood’s revised dietary habits, or finally witness the kind of monster Pinocchio grew up to be. And while they are at it, why not lend a hand to an armed-to-the-teeth teddy bear on an important mission? He can't quite stitch it all up by himself!

Prepare to meet familiar childhood heroes!.. Though the reunion is unlikely to be a happy one: these days the gingerbread men are out for blood, the Sleeping Beauty appears to be a few centuries behind on her sleep schedule (and a true love’s kiss ain’t going to cut it this time), while the Little Mermaid has come to resemble a sea witch rather than an innocent daughter of the ocean.

Turns out our stuffed knight is a jack-of-all-trades – repurposing a pair of scissors into dual-wielding melee weapons as well as a bow that shoots sharp needles that can also serve as makeshift grappling hooks for bypassing deadly traps. Guess if fighting against evil doesn't work out for him, Teddy may yet find his calling as a world-famous tailor!

Every level takes place in a twisted version of an easily recognizable fairy tale rife with combat, obstacles, and secrets. Sure you can select a difficulty level most suited for comfortable play... But why not go all out and conquer the horrors that await the bravest of daredevils in max difficulty mode! After all, what’s life without a little challenge, right..?

The Darkest Tales is a game with deep enigmatic lore. As you progress and defeat monsters, you’ll slowly unveil the mysteries of the world of nightmares. How does this tale end? Let your gaming skills decide that!

The Darkest Tales is coming to PC (Steam), Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One in 2021.
