    Wild Woods demo is a cooperative 3rd person action game where your clan of 4 animals guide the caravan through dangerous forests. Collect wood and health to stay alive when it gets dark, because when the light is gone, the enemies come to take all of your goods... and your life!

    Conclusion:
    Wild Woods wouldn't even launch with stable version of Wine and DXVK, but I found that it runs GREAT with the staging versions. I was able to play the entire demo several times with my daughters and 2 controllers along with keyboard and mouse. Performance was great, controls were snappy and made sense... it was quite a fun game! I'm looking forward to a full game one day.
