The Forest Trailer

This trailer shows off gameplay from The Forest, a first-person, open-world survival/horror game in the works at SKS Games, a Vancouver studio formed by special effects artists who have worked on films like 300 and TRON Legacy. They say an alpha version of the game is expected this year, and the video, in which it can be difficult to see the forest for the trees, calls the footage it includes "pre-alpha." The game is seeking Steam Greenlight support, and here's why they feel it's worth your vote from The Forest website:

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.

Gameplay
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.

It was like Lost until the mutants from The Descent showed up. The music even felt the same. (SO tired of EVERYONE copying Giacchino these days.)

So it's Don't Starve with better graphics?

That was my thought. Looks gorgeous though.

Also, I had a full 30s commercial before that 75s trailer. That's just F'ing annoying.
Ad blocker. BAM and the dirt is gone.

Has potential if they could get a game like minecraft going with 2013-2014 technology built into it. Imagine building anything you can think of just as you would in real life practically? Using only the resources available to you within the world they created(the forest) anything goes with no limits or restrictions. It could have potential to act out a Cast Away type of scenario. See how long can you last on the island/forest.

love the idea but they've never actually made a game before to completion and it might be over-ambitious for a first game. I wish them good luck though.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing; it is pretty ambitious, and correct me if I am wrong, but this isn't the first time we've seen these guys throw something at the wall to see how well it sticks. Or I may be confusing them with another developer.../shrug

trailer looks really good, first half has sort of a Lost feel to it. Hadn't heard of this before, but really looking forward to it.
