'The Forest' Coming To Steam Early Access - New Screens

by Rainier on March 25, 2014 @ 11:08 a.m. PDT

The Forest is a first person survival horror simulator where you, as the lone survivor of a passenger jet crash, find yourself in a mysterious forest battling to stay alive against a society of cannibalistic mutants.

Utilizing cutting edge volume lighting effects, parallax mapping, vector based motion blur, screen based real time reflections and physical materials our team has pushed Unity 4 to produce some of the most striking visuals ever made with this engine.

Our backgrounds in film visual effects and animation on projects such as ‘Tron: Legacy’, ‘The Amazing Spiderman 2’, and the ‘Twilight’ films have allowed us to utilize realtime technology to deliver a realistic looking and harrowing vision of horror, featuring some of the most believable and life like creatures you’ve ever seen in a video game.

We are also excited to officially announce our alpha price point, releasing on steam the 22nd of May, 2014 The Forest will be available for $14.99
