Become the witch of the woods in BLACKTAIL. Slavic myth comes to life in this surreal first-person action-adventure. Discover Yaga’s story and guide her along the path to become either the fearsome guardian of the forest or the dark legend that haunts children’s nightmares.
Create the myth of Baba Yaga by living out the origins of this classic Slavic folk story in BLACKTAIL, the first-person action-adventure from THE PARASIGHT. Experience a one-of-a-kind blend of intense archery combat and dark storytelling set in a vibrant fairy tale world. Choose your path to become either the guardian of the woods or the terror nightmares are made of.
You play as Yaga, a 16-year-old girl accused of witchcraft and expelled from an early medieval Slavic settlement. When living memories of her past return as foul, walking spirits, Yaga is faced with no other option than to hunt them down in hopes of unraveling her own mystery.
Unravel The Past
- Follow a mysterious voice leading Yaga down the dark path to power and discover your own past along the way.
- Track down elusive spirits with the help of the Black Cat, and engage in thrilling boss fights to awaken Yaga’s missing memories.
- Relive memories to gather clues and solve the mystery of Yaga’s lost friends in this 15+ hour adventure.
Explore The Wild
- Harness your trusty bow and gauntlet to defeat the many enemies that haunt the wilds.
- Craft arrows and potions, hunt wild game, and gather resources to survive in the foreboding woods.
- Collect lost recipes from the ancient Grimoire and brew elixirs in the Cauldron to unlock skill upgrades and grow into the tales of legend.
- Transform your playstyle using powerful Hexes and an enchanted Broom.
- Find hidden treasures and pieces of Slavic myths to learn more about your surroundings and history.
Shape Your Future
- BLACKTAIL’s Morality System changes your skills as you make story-defining decisions.
- Choose your alliances and beliefs through fairy tale-driven side quests.
- Decide the fate of the land and its inhabitants: be vengeful and manipulative or honest and compassionate to the creatures of BLACKTAIL’s fantastical forest.
