The Path from Tale of Tales and TransGaming is available now for purchase and download at Mac Game Store. Basing the title on the path taken to grandmother's house by Little Red Ridinghood in the classic tale, the experimental game attempts to remove some of the goal oriented focus of other titles to delve into what happens between the beginning and end of a frightening story.

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.

Requirements:

  • Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later
  • Dual Core Intel Mac
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 583 MB HD Space
  • Video:
    • ATI Radeon X1600
    • NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT
The Path is available now for $9.99 (USD).
