The Forest offers first look at their open-world survival horror title

The Forest

By on May 10, 2013 at 10:24 am

The Forest is an ambitious-looking title, aiming to release later this year exclusively for PC and with Oculus Rift support. It’s being put together by a bunch of indies named SKS Games, based in Vancouver, many of whom were digital effects artists on titles like 300 and Tron: Legacy.

SKS are promising a living and breathing world with changing weather patterns, dynamic tides, plants that grow and die, and the ability to build structures and traps. At night, you’ll have to defend yourself against various horrors, so make sure you have a campfire (or fire of some kind, at least). Check out the trailer below.

An alpha version is expected this year. Hit up the official site to learn more.

As someone who has played a ridiculous amount of Stranded 1 and 2, this looks really good.

 

I’m in.

 

Colour me interested.

How much is Oculus looking to sell for once released?

 

Murray Hibble,

The Dev ones are selling for $300 at the moment, so hopefully around that price. At $300 USD, I’m certainly interested in getting one.

 

tough to watch with the website stuttering all the time =(

 

mrdeeds,

I’d say that’s just you :P
