Earlier this year, the first volume of Woolfe: The Red Hood Diaries was released and it was meant to be a dark and gothic twist on the class Red Riding Hood stories. With a dangerous robotic army, a plot about Red’s father being (possibly) murdered and some platforming that looked like it could be both fun and challenging, it had all the ingredients for a troubling take on a fairy tale.
Unfortunately, the first half of the game didn’t sell well and with development being expensive (the developer, GRIN, moved to a 3D engine which increased costs), the studio behind Woolfe filed for bankruptcy, shut down and ceased production. Not only did the second half of the game not get finished but many of the backer rewards from its Kickstarter campaign weren’t honoured either. However, with the Woolfe IP recently being bought by independent studio Rebellion (the team behind the Sniper Elite games) things could be looking up.
