Winner of ‘Best Project 2012’ for both the Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) Game Connection Award and Game Connection Europe, BADLAND is located in a gorgeous forest full of various inhabitants, trees and flowers. Although the forest looks like it’s from some beautiful fairytale, there seems to be something terribly wrong. The player controls one of the forest’s inhabitants to discover what’s going on.
