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

    KORNdog and i say that as someone who believed half life 2 is still the greatest FPS ever made. but it's still an issue that plagues a lot of games. horizon recently was terrible at this with the audio logs. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but that's a common problem with maintaining player control even when characters are talking at you. you get distracted and start fannying around. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: eh, i'll give you alex vance, but i don't really find any of the others particularly well written. and i'd argue throwing boxes while you're supposed to be engrosse in story is bad design. (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Sometimes the less you know about a character too = more interesting. Like G-Man. He pops up now and again being a creepy bastard. Thats what makes him interesting. (3 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Plus the fact you were messing about with boxes is a good thing, no? Game first, story and characters second is my motto. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @KORNdog: Come on Korn, you know thats a horseshit statement you made. Before Naughty Dog and Bioware with Mass Effect, there was Alyx Vance. She may be a bit dated these days, but back then... (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: i guess i missed it. i was too busy running about all over the place throwing boxes around as my mute husk. lol (4 Hours ago)
