The story of Baba Yaga has been around for a long time, but in Blacktail, you can play through it and make your own version of it.

The game has a dark story and a variety of ways to fight with bows. The first-person game gives you control over the story. If you like how Blacktail’s story is out of this world, there are a few other games you might like. They give you the power to choose, change the world, and make your own future.
