Indie Spotlight - The Forest

Each week the DRM Gamecast will highlight one Indie game that we feel is worth looking into. Every game listed has a planned console release for the Xbox One and/or PS4.

The Forest

The Forest is an open world survival horror game where players must scavenge for resources, build a shelter, and survive the long and deadly night. Powered by the Unity 4 engine, The Forest is being developed by Endnight Games, a four person indie studio based out of Vancouver.

Players will need to utilize every resource the forest has to offer to survive. Tress can be chopped down to build structures, animals can be hunted for food, and the island has plenty of locales to be discovered. In true survival fashion, you will have to maintain your hunger, thirst, temperature, and more to stay in top shape. In the PC Alpha there is also a "veganmode" which turns off the enemies.


The world
Enter a living, breathing forest with changing weather patterns, plants that grow and die. Tides that roll in and out with the day/night cycle.  Below ground explore a vast network of caves and underground lakes.

Complete player freedom
Chop down trees to build a camp, or start a fire to keep warm. Scavenge food to keep yourself from starving.  Find and plant seeds to grow food.

Build a small shelter or a large ocean side fortress. decorate your home with found items. Lay traps and defenses 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.

Fight or Hide
Use stealth to evade enemies, or engage them directly with crude weapons built from sticks and stones.

A new type of open world, survival horror experience
Defend yourself against a clan of genetic mutant enemies that have beliefs, families and morals and that appear almost human.

The Forest is currently available for purchase on Steam Early Access for $15 with a planned console debut for the PS4. For more information you can visit the games official pageWiki and also follow the developers Endnight Games on Twitter.
