I'm actually very interested in the Woodshraad's story, but I can find nothing on the Woodshraad online. Do you know where I could go to learn more about it? Or is it of your own creation?
Vincent and the Woodshraad
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
You're Vincent... a 7yr old boy.... . . .
Deep in the forest at rottenmost trees,
lives a brave forgotten ghost of these.
Stay away of his roots, little man in fear,
when the giant's boots get louder and near.
...Like an old fairytale meets SciFi?!
... i'm not sure how to describe it...
....a short creepy or horror game...
...a puzzle, not easy, also not insane...
...an experimental experience... 😄
The days are gone, in silent mode,
living like tron, fighting violent code.
I've programmed a game, for you to play,
without getting lame, 24 hours a day.
I'm a one-man-army, but i got the work done,
i didn't get money, just want players have fun.
I don't know who you are, i should not bother,
if you don't like it so far, so maybe some other.
I made it with love, for the art and the story,
hope it makes you happy, but if not i'm sorry.
The result of creation, of course in some sort,
increases pulsation, but remember it's short.
Some rumors whispered, what my game is about,
it's an ancient myth, it's deadly, watch out.
..inform yourself... or get torn in twelve?...🤔
The storyline deals with an old german tale,
from days where wheels weren't present on trail.
A legendary giant, a ghost see wrath and rage,
the forest his client, with mostly path and swage.
When red eyes glow, no sounds, no man would clat,
i'm sure you know, to pronounce the Woodshraad.
If one of his brothers got hurt or got killed,
he quickly uncovers the murder in guild.
As he follow some traces, watching details so small,
while destructing all places not made for his tall.
He may be forgotten, but beyond the dark oaks,
a little bit rotten and truly not up to jokes.
The lurking giant covered in leaves and dirt,
takes care of his fellows you better not hurt.
...to avoid any custom mainboard fires...
... look what system the game requires....
PC-Windows 7,8,10 / MacOSX / Linux
(LinuxDistros with 3DCard/GL-Support)
- CPU min Dualcore / Quadcore recommended, AMD / Intel
- ~300 MB HDD / SSD freespace
- min. 4 Gb RAM / 8 Gb recommended
- 3D-GraphicsCard highly recommended
It's more a puzzle with dangers around,
even not that hard as the trailer may sound.
It will play with itself, as soon as you're done,
take a save place and enjoy the loud fun.
.... yes, you can die in there ....
Feel free to comment if you have any suggestions for improvement or thoughts or whatever...

Hey 😎, of course there's not much to find, i currently googled for the english definition... The original german word is "WALDSCHRAT"... which i translated into Woodshraad -> because Wald = Woods/Forest, Shraad = Shadow (old english/angl.) . A "SCHRAT" is a Goblin / Ghost / NatureSpirit, and it took place in some old german sagas and fairytales. According to Wikipedia the english name is "Bugbear" .. 🤔 .. but that doesn't really fit to the original meaning (in my view). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bugbear .
The games story about the "woodshraad" is a creation of my own, so there wasn't any story about a lil boy that got rescued by a huge lovely monster tree 😆.
hi, big thx for the cool creepy game. i love it but, wo ist die taschenlampe ;) greetings from rosti
Thank you for playing. Great Video. I hope you already found the flashlight in the childrenroom 😄👍👍👍
Greetings and have a nice day 😎
Quite a nice game, so clever and fun
Your alien's design gives an urge to run.
The ending was sweet, and I wanted to cry
If you finish the game, you'll probably see why.
I've given the rhyme, as your words were strong
To deny your request would make me feel wrong.
I appreciate how brave you are,
a really great behave so far.
Seems not common to gaze the dev lines,
to recognize this whole place has rhymes.
But you did and wrote without hesitation,
comments like yours keeps up my motivation.
I'm always glad if players let me know,
that they really hat enjoyed my show.
Thank you for playing and commenting this way,
i wish you the best and a very nice day. 😎
SUCH AN AMAZING GAME!!
SUCH AN AMAZING VIDEO 😁👍👍👍🏆, i remembered your channel... directly watched and enjoyed your gameplay. Thank you very much for playing. have a nice day 👌
I'm on linux (manjaro/arch) on kde plasma and when the game starts after the intro i see only a white screen and at the beginning i can see the shortcuts/keys. Can you help me ? i have an amd graphics card
Lemme try to help you. I also use Manjaro here on my linux pc. So when do you see a white screen? After the UnityLogo or after the "ingame-intro" -> you clicked "start game" in main menu screen? was the game already running and you've meant the wooden sign with the keys shown WASD, SHIFT, etc... ? Or does it happen after you clicked start in the first ConfigWindow? Are you using FullscreenMode? Manjaro 18.0/2, stable? I think this isn't a graphics card issue, but which amd gcard is it exactly? If you've already made it into the game, after Vincents father told him all the stuff.... i've to try forcing that crash on different manjaro systems. Till now i can just guess, what the problem is 🤔
Enjoyed your game. Keep up the good work, my son loved it! Recorded a part of the game for the vid. Greetings from Belgium
Thank you very much for playing and recording your gameplay. Sooo nice 👍😄 I'm sure your son is the youngest player that ever played one of my games... i hope the rest of the game was not too spooky?!.. 🙄🙄because if he now starts to fear trees, i'll feel bad. 😆 Have a nice week and much Greetings from Germany. 😊
Dieser Radiosound – hat mich irgendwie an den Film 'die vierte Art' erinnert – echt spuki. Was ich nit verstanden hab, wie man sich so mit 3,5% Milch eindecken kann, 1,5% reicht doch; ansonsten geile Idee und atmosphärisch (wo das Shraadding am Schluss von dannen zieht, schwebt der etwas, ist aber Kritik auf hohem Niveau).<;
Hay 😁👌, vielen Dank für's Spielen. Das ist das erste Feedback welches mich aus den Heimatgefilden erreicht hat. Das muss ich celebrieren.... moment ...
So fertig! 🤣😄. Ja das mit der Milch ist so ne Sache, aber wenn diese wohlgenährte, fiktive Familie Seppa meint sie muss Fettmilch trinken... soll sie es tun. Darauf hab ich beim Erstellen der Textur nicht geachtet 🙄. Und ja, der Waldschrat läuft ein bisschen sehr "gräziös", aber hauptsache er läuft. Danke für den Download, für's Spielen und für dein Feedback und noch eine angenehme Nacht 😉,
As Usual Two Minutes of Gameplay from Z9ZGAMES Channel!!!
With All Thanks to the Creator of the Game!!!
Thank you for playing and for sharing your video. I hope you had some fun while playing... and hopefully more than 2 minutes 😁 Have a nice day! greetz, Ravee
I really enjoyed this, a game I could not miss. Some parts were really scary, my pants I did piss.
Not sure if I am lame but I'm sure I broke the game! Because of this I could not finish, what a shame.
I still had an awesome time, more so then coming up with this horrible rhyme. Best of luck to you, may your efforts be sublime.
What the hell is going on, a bug attacked.. the house was gone. - Seems i have to fix the code, to make the house correctly load. - I guess it's the performance-trigger, i'll start my work so whatzzup nnnn. .. .. never mind. 😆
Thx for playing and thank you so much for sharing your video 👌👌. Its's very helpful and I'm gonna start my "desaster-management" now, so i can provide an update tonight.

Full Gameplay of your game. Fantastic Game Dev. Enjoyed your game and Overall everything is well made the Graphics, the Environment and story especially the Ending....Really Deserve 5/5 Love to see More projects like this :)
THANK YOU sooo much for that video and for your comment. 👍👍👍 It's the first and important video, where i can see, that the concept and the game worked correctly. I was really nervous and afraid before, because i thought my little puzzle concept maybe had failed. But your video is proof that my worries weren't necessary. I'm really relieved 😃.
Thank you and enjoy your day 😎
I read you allow only rhyme
you crazy man okay its fine.
i opened itch-I.O. after long time
was your game BRO. i saw shine.
I'm the first one in here
i love that spooky atmosphere.
Its raining in there not dry,
i saw that when i gave it a try.
To find the clue it took an hour,
cus im so high, higher like a tower^^
I've reached the end and time went by,
after playing i started to cry.
The end is fcking cuuuute!
greetings from the netherlands
Oh no, i didn't expect someone takes that serious at all,
must be a dutchman, a guy very tall ... 😁
Thank you very much for playing, it's the truth what i am saying.
I remember your name, from my other game.
I am glad to know you're still alive and on,
i thought you were overdosed and gone. 😂
Thank you for your confidence in my creations and for that great reply.
Have a nice day. 😊
