Build, explore, survive in this terrifying first person survival horror simulator.

It’s been a long journey so far for all of us, but we’re really excited to have people join us in the next stage of development, where together we see how far we can take this concept.

Our aim for this first alpha is to release a platform we can build upon, adding more animals, more interactions, more emergent moments, polishing, improving, opening up new areas of the world and really make this into an unforgettable survival horror experience!

Originally scheduled for last week, The Forest is now available on Steam Early Access (9AM PDT, $14.99).
