Belgian studio GRIN is developing Woolfe for a variety of platforms, with an ongoing Kickstarter to help fund bigger ideas and additional game systems, like a way for Red to harness magical wolf powers. The developers let me play an early build of the game that showed off the intricate, textured in-game art style. Then they shared some exclusive concept art that offers a behind-the-scenes look at how the game's visuals were developed.

The art book, which is a potential bonus for certain Kickstarter backers, contains quite a bit more concept art than this. Future stretch goals might include a tabletop RPG based on the world of Woolfe, or 3D figures of the characters.

Not sure how I feel about this naked vine lady...but she appears to be more dressed in the following picture, so I'm hoping that that was just scrapped concept art.

Other than that, it looks awesome! Red looks like a total badass.
