Overview:

The Huntress of the Hollow is a short, linear, pseudo-rpg game where the battles add more flavor to the narrative than to a true rpg. It's a slight spin on Little Red Riding Hood: a coming of age story where the hunted becomes the hunter.

Background:

Lenora Calamint lives with her mother in a small village called Pokeweed Hollow on the outskirts of a forest. She often delivers food to her stubborn grandmother, who prefers to live alone in the woods. While the forest is a dangerous place full of wolves, the village and her grandmother's house were peaceful.

However, once a travelling, charismatic hunter decided to settle near the village and offered to protect it, the local wolves became mysteriously violent and began to attack the village in erratic bursts of activity. Due to these events, some villagers praise the hunter for his help in keeping the wolves out of their homes. The others can't help but think there's something suspicious about the matter. Despite it all, Lenora still has a grandmother to take care of, and so she wakes up to begin her routine of visiting her grandmother anew.

Misaos woah

Hey!

Somehow, Huntress won "Best Antagonist", "Best Finale", and.... "Trippiest Game" Misaos?!

That's awesome! I don't get it at all, especially the trippiest one, but man, thank you everyone! You all are very sweet and I'm so very glad my game spoke to you all in such a way. I can't wait to make more games for you all. <3

This is really cute! I'll have to try it soon.

EDIT: So far I'm really enjoying it! The graphics are super adorable and I love the use of color. I don't have a lot of time to play but hopefully soon I can finish it.

Even if you can't finish it, thank you so much for checking out my game! I'm glad you like it so far. :)
Damn, I just finished playing this, then went back to get every single ending. This was amazing!! From the art to the story, it's one of the few games I've played lately that I've actually found myself feeling really happy while playing (Well, as happy as you can be beating wolves to death with an axe I guess??). Thanks so much for making this, creators like you are the reason I love independent games as much as I do!

And thank YOU for playing the game! I really hope to make a name for myself with my games, so it makes me so happy it left such a good impression with you! I have so many areas I need to work on, but hearing such wonderful comments helps me from being too harsh on myself haha. I hope you'll get a chance to check out my other games, and I hope what I make continues to elicit such a great response. c:
This game was great!! :) Thank you for making it, it's very inspiring and beautiful. <3
I wrote a review too, hopefully it gets approved. :U Have a wonderful day and keep making kickass games!
Stylistically, looks great. I'll give it a play.
The grandma's house is empty? And I can't go up the stairs, not sure if you're supposed to or not.
This style is so captivating, and the colors *A* excited to play.
I don't know how to use spoiler tag, trying my best not to spoil.

Say... Does Cayne have a trait similar to Avel's in the bonus room's description as to why Lenora could find a bloody Avel in the den at first?
