Our videos of The Forest

The Forest has been made available on Steam for those willing to have early access to the Alpha version of the game. There are obviously quite a good number of bugs and glitches but it should give you an idea as to what to expect anyway. You play the role of a man whose plane has just crashed and whose kid (?) has been kidnapped by the locals. The odd thing is that before the crash, he and the child were the only passengers in the plane, which seems to indicate there's some kind of mystery going on. Once on the island, he will have to organize himself in order to survive the deadly conditions, which means feed himself, stay dry and avoid the locals at all costs.
Note: The frame drops you can see are due to the capture.

Wandering around (sound problem)
Meeting the locals
The cave
The camp site (30fps)

Wonderful game. As long as they continue to polish this game up until release it's going to be amazing.

i see there are still quite a few bugs but the main issue for me is the melee combat where the axe does no damage at all, quite a lot more work needed but ok for now.

Quite a big update just came out, fixes a number of bugs, I played it on day one when I bought it but now will happily wait a few weeks for it to receive more polish, and hopefully a bow and arrow!

I love this game. There isn't much to it yet and plenty of bugs but what is there is so fun to play around with. Definitely worth 15 dollars while I watch them polish it over time.

Agreed. Visuals are good, but that melee combat. Wow. Looks terribly contrived and weak. And not sure how I feel about a game that looks realistic and then has a tree that magically splits itself. Especially after you hack away at it forever just to get it to fall. Getting mixed signals.

About the game

What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yea I can see them being more problematic on consoles.. it doesn't require much precision to run someone down with the saber either. (11 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @GriftGFX: Yes, a little bit OP though. If one charges at you with a horse, you're f'ed unless you can pull off a headshot. Especially on consoles they are hard to hit because of the 'controller' (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And ya gotta count horses 'cause horsing is one of the best things in the game. (4 Hours ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 @GriftGFX: yeah I've noticed the extra revive time. You shouldn't compare ww1 vehicles to modern warfare though as it's simply unfair. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm sure people miss the progression from more recent games tho.. some people are really into that. It's undeniably barebones by comparison. (5 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Have you noticed that you can still be revived waaaay after the "bleed out" period? Still saves a death too.. hah. (5 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It's not just the lack of unlocks.. lack of stuff in general. Battlefield 2 still had more vehicle and weapon variety than BF1. Way more. (5 Hours ago)
