Downwood Tales gives players the exciting opportunity to continue the story of brave Prince Collin and his closest companions: Maginos, Nez, Tilda, Filch, and Lily. The old oak tree that houses Barksburg is dying, and the heroes must venture into the Downwood in hopes of finding a new home. But things are not what they should be deep in the forest, and a multitude of schemers, thugs, and terrifying woodland beasts stand in their way. Race against time with the characters you have come to know and love, or try your hand at three new heroes. Play as Ditty the shrew, an adorable scoundrel who is fast and deadly, or try Ansel, the stalwart mouse warden. Lead the others as Jakobe, a wily gecko who acts as a guide through the dangerous green of the Downwood.
