Mable & The Wood is a Metroidvania where you can take the form of the bosses that you kill, changing how you're able to explore the interconnected world. It's also a Metroidvania where you don't have to kill anyone.

The strange cult that resurrected you speak of an ancient prophecy that says you will hunt down the great beasts, take their shape, and use their powers to save this dying world. But what if they're wrong? The prophecy is old, and words lose their meaning with time...

When the world is falling apart around you, what will you do? In Mable & The Wood, it's up to you to make that choice. You don't have to kill anyone, but you might kill everyone.

Will you banish the darkness, or will you become it?


The way you move is deadly. Dragging a sword that is too heavy to lift, Mable shape-shifts into a fairy and leaves it where she stood. Recall the sword to your hand once again to slice through any enemies in your path.

You can only maintain your non-human form for a limited time, but killing creatures extends your power.


Defeat the great beasts to take their shape and transform into a mole, medusa, spider and more...

Find and defeat the other bosses to unlock even more shapes!


The game takes place in a dark fantasy world, with each area making up part of a large, complex map that's packed full of all kinds of secrets for you to discover.

Uncover secrets that you can use to find alternative, non-combat routes through the world and discover a different side to the story (and multiple endings!)


Discover a rich story and define your own role in it. Will you become the saviour everyone's trying to convince you to be, or will your actions lead to the world literally tearing itself apart?


Your choices matter - The cult wants you to kill everything, but it's up to you whether or not you listen to them or find your own path and unlock the multiple endings

  • A rich story with a diverse cast of characters who have their own take on this whole 'end of the world' thing
  • Combat is movement and movement is combat - Mable can't lift her magical sword, so she has to use it in unique ways to move through the world
  • A large and varied fantasy world brought to life with state-of-the-art pixel technology and a beautiful original soundtrack
  • Multiple endings, different routes to take through the world and secrets to discover

Hi, I just bought the game, and the Linux version doesn't seem to work for me (I'm running on Arch Linux). The error message tells me libcrypto.so.1.0.0 can not be found. After further investigation, it seems that I have the version libcrypto.so.1.1 . It doesn't seem to be the only shared library related problem unfortunately. I really can not downgrade my system, would there be any solution ? Maybe just a more recent Linux export of the game would do the trick ?

Hello, I just bought your game here. Its displayed properly in my itch library - but when doing Download > Install there it just keeps telling me "no compatible uploads found for this title".

There seems to be something missing from your side - the offered download link is not vaild. So i bought, but cannot play - pretty embarrassing. Would be nice to have this fixed - thx!

Ok, thanks for letting us know about this issue. Did you download the PC, Mac, or Linux version? The PC and Linux versions are both in a zip file, so you might have to extract those locally before launching from your itch.io library. 

The itch.io app and launcher are new and we hadn't tested this when we launched the game on itch. If you continue to have problems, hit me up at andy@graffitigames.com and I can get you a Steam key instead. 


Hello, dear Andy

After receiving your post, i checked out Mable once again in my itch-lib - whatever has happened the past week, the missing "install"-option for Mable is back. The direct downloads for the .zip archives are back working too.

So whoever fixed this, thanks - sorry to bother. Im downloading just now & looking forward to play.

Hey, thank you for letting us know about the issue regardless. I'm happy that it worked itself out.

So I've downloaded the Mac OS version a couple of times now, and every time I try to launch the game it pops up with :
Did something go wrong with the Mac upload? Looking forward to playing the game!

I am opening this on a 2016 Mac Book Pro.

We have a new Mac OS X version. Please reply if you're still having issues!

As of 9/14/19 issue has been solved by the link in laikaproj's reply
Unfortunately, I am still running into the same issue.  Just to test it out I've downloaded a couple of other games with mac versions off of Itch , but both of those were able to unzip and open.   When I extract the zip there is no indication of anything going wrong during extraction. 


Hey! I'm not the dev on the project but I ran into this issue on my own game. The solution should be to change your Mac OS security settings to allow all applications. Unfortunately Apple has hidden this option away pretty heavily so you'll have to go through some steps to enable it: http://osxdaily.com/2016/09/27/allow-apps-from-anywhere-macos-gatekeeper/

That *should* fix it ;)

I thought I had found everything there was, didn't know about that command line code!  It finally allowed me to open the game! Thanks! Now I just gotta wait after work tomorrow to dig in!

I need to know. Why MAC?

One reason: Ease of access.  I am very rarely on my PC these days,  and on my MAC more often than not when I am on a computer.
