Guänna is a 2.5D side-scrolling game, with focus on delivering a suspenseful experience for the player. The setting and main character are influenced by Swedish folklore, the title “Guänna” being the name of a mythical female entity from the old tales.

The player takes on the role of one of these women, on a journey through a dark and foreboding forest. In the woods there’s a light that beckons the traveler, and the player must make sure she safely reaches her destination. To help her on the journey she can use her magical hair to climb obstacles and build bridges where needed.

As the game starts the Guänna is walking under the full moon.

It is night and she’s not alone.

There are other things in these woods.

What they are, and if they’re friend or foe remains unclear. Maybe you’ll find out when you join the Guänna on her perilous journey.
