The Darkest Tales - a platformer from developer Trinity Team and publisher 101XP - is scheduled to release sometime in 2022. In the meantime, Trinity Team has released The Darkest Tales: Into the Nightmare, a rather meaty demo consisting of the game's first two levels. Of course, calling these "levels" is an understatement - the levels in The Darkest Tales feel more like "worlds".
In The Darkest Tales, a brave (but surly) teddy bear must venture into the dreams of his owner Alicia to conquer various demons that have taken root in her psyche. The catch? The demons are taking the form of various fairy tale characters, resulting in some dark tales, indeed.
