About the Game

As the lone survivor of a passenger jet crash, you find yourself in a mysterious forest battling to stay alive against a society of cannibalistic mutants.

Build, explore, survive in this terrifying first person survival horror simulator.


Key alpha features

Enter a living, breathing world, where every tree and plant can be chopped down. Below ground explore a vast network of caves and underground lakes.

  • Chop down trees to build a camp, or start a fire to keep warm. Scavenge food to keep yourself from starving.
  • Build a small shelter or a large ocean side fortress. Lay traps and defences to keep a safe perimeter.
  • Explore and build during the day. Defend your base at night. Craft weapons and tools. Bunker down during the evening or bring the fight directly to the enemy.
  • Defend yourself against a clan of genetic mutant enemies that have beliefs, families, morals and that appear almost human.
  • Use stealth to evade enemies, or engage them directly with crude weapons built from sticks and stones.


Development roadmap

The Forest has been in development for a while, but now we need your feedback to make it even better. Our vision for this game is a terrifying open world full of gameplay options and player freedom. We've come a long way but still have a lot of features and improvements to make.

Here's a small sampling of what we hope to add to the game during alpha:

  • Many more animals - fish, snakes, frogs and bird types. We want to really bring the world to life with the variety of fauna.
  • More trapping and hunting options.
  • Expanded A.I. - We're trying some really cool stuff for our AI, and plan to keep it evolving and improving over the alpha.
  • More areas to explore - over time new areas will be added and unlocked and our cave system will continue to develop downwards.
  • More buildable items - More options in what you can construct and what's available to use.
  • More crafting options, more items combinable and more exciting things to create.
  • New creatures - as we unlock more and more of the world and caves over the course of the alpha we'll also be introducing many new terrifying creatures along with a few surprises.
  • Visual improvements - we want to keep pushing what's possible, making the world look, feel and run better.
  • Many UI tweaks and polish.
  • Additional game modes, including a no-enemies cheat mode for players who want a calmer experience.
  • Multiplayer - we find the idea of co-op play in this world really exciting and hope to implement a form of co-op into the experience.
  • Full oculus rift compatibility for the most immersive experience possible. * Note, this will not be available in first version of alpha*
