Un juego de exploración pura, de gran concepto pero no del todo bien realizado.
Algo así como una versión libre del cuento de Caperucita Roja.

The Path is about as bizarrely leisure game as Endless Forest is, leaving me only to wonder what the game tries to be about except running around. I could find very little to do besides following the path to the house, or running around and collecting these.. flower things. It's nice, sort of, but seems to lack any definite goal for the player.

Official description

There's something wrong with the forest. No matter how bright the sun shines, it remains dark and foggy. It smells like something died. Strange noises fill the rusty air. Squeaks and screeches. The dull thump of someone chopping trees. The wind playing eerie melodies on ghostlike flutes.
Shivers run down her spine.
She just left the city. Cars can't drive here anymore. Mother told her to go visit grandmother. The old lady lives all alone at the other side of the forest. Quite a walk from here. It's probably best if she stays on the path...

The Path is a short horror game with a unique form of gameplay, designed to immerse you deeply into the dark themes of its story. Every interaction in the game expresses an aspect of the narrative.

There is one rule in the game. And it needs to be broken.
There is one goal. And when you attain it, you die.

The Path features a continuous soundtrack composed by Jarboe and mixed in real time through in-game activity.

"Come, Little Red-Cap, here is a piece of cake and a bottle of wine; take them to your grandmother, she is ill and weak, and they will do her good. Set out before it gets hot, and when you are going, walk nicely and quietly and do not run off the path, or you may fall and break the bottle, and then your grandmother will get nothing!"
