Endnight Games have released a trailer for their upcoming indie title The Forest which is a PC exclusive. You play as the lone survivor of a plane crash who's ended up on an island filled with cannibals. We wanted to create a world where we could drop the player into and give them free range to do whatever they want, similar to something like Minecraft where a lot of the fun comes from decisions that you make. Players build up their skills and equipment in order to get to new parts of The Forest, but specific goals won't be spelled out. Instead, you'll be dropped in the world and will have to explore without any defined missions. If you want to uncover the story of The Forest, clues are hidden amongst the environment. There will be an ending, but it's optional and the developers think that many gamers will get so caught up in surviving that they won't even realize there's a conclusion. As for the cannibals residing in The Forest, we are taking a unique approach. These cannibals aren't evil, just hungry. If you kill their friends they'll cry over their bodies or in some instances they'll even run away. Other times they'll watch you from a vantage point in the trees without moving in & slowly stalk you waiting for an opportunity. Those who can survive in The Forest long enough will be able to earn a spot on the leader boards. For the hardcore survivalists out there, permadeath will also be an option. The game will be in Beta in the next few months and the footage in the following trailer is merely early alpha footage and work in progress.
