The Path is a horror game inspired by older versions of Little Red Riding hood, set in modern day. The Path offers an atmospheric experience of exploration, discovery and introspection through a unique form of gameplay, designed to immerse you deeply into its dark themes. Every interaction in the game expresses an aspect of the narrative. The six protagonists each have their own age and personality and allow the player to live through the tale in different ways. Most of the story, however, relies on your active imagination.

The Path is designed with accessibility in mind. There are no ticking clocks or monsters to defeat. No hard puzzles will ever halt your progress. Most activities in the game are entirely optional and voluntary. The player has all the freedom in the world to explore and experience.

The Path is an independently created video game. It was developed with digital distribution in mind. The characters in this virtual world, including the player's avatars, are governed by a form of artificial intelligence that gives them some autonomy. As a result, nobody knows exactly what you will encounter on your journeys.

Next to the multi-layered stylized graphics, The Path features a continuous soundtrack composed by goth rock diva Jarboe (ex-Swans). In fact, there are hardly any sound effects in the game. Instead the music is continuously changing according to what is happening in the game. Like the behaviours of the characters, the music too is never exactly the same twice.

  1. Interesting game
    by hcs5490, USA - Mar 25th 2014

    The Path is certainly an intriguing game. I felt that I could explore for hours just trying to find something new. The idea is beautiful and just morbid enough to interest me, but I felt there was almost too much to explore. I had more fun reading interpretations of the game online after playing than I did actually playing the game. A tiny bit more direction/purpose could hace helped keep my attention more. I didn't really have enough patience to play out the game with each girl. This game is really meant for someone who loves creating their own story for the characters, someone who can really appreciate the mood of the game.

  2. Quite annoying
    by Simona, Italy - Dec 14th 2013

    It's not a game in the traditional sense... it's not scaring, and there's no monsters or similar, just a girl (you) wandering alone in the forest, it's really annoying.
