Acid Wizard Studio, a small independent studio from Poland, has just released their free-roam survival horror, Darkwood. The studio has also published a new trailer today, consisting of a couple of minutes of raw gameplay footage.

Darkwood was successfully crowdfunded in 2013, gathering over $57,000. The team spent the next four years developing the game and refining it with its backers and the Early Access community.

Darkwood is now available for PC, Mac and Linux.
