Today during this week long event I am going to be talking about another Indie game and their developers that I found, and haven’t found the time to play it just yet, but felt it needed some love too. It’s a game called The Forest. This game has multiple genre’s attached to it. First it’s early access and has been around for roughly 3 years now. It’s also another Survival style game that has Open world, horror, etc. added into it. Now what is it about? Well here is the snippet from the store page on steam.
As the lone survivor of a passenger jet crash, you find yourself in a mysterious forest battling to stay alive against a society of cannibalistic mutants. Build, explore, survive in this terrifying first person survival horror simulator.
The Developers have a background in film visual effects, and have worked on a few movies. To name a few they have done stuff on The Amazing Spiderman 2 and Tron:Legacy. So yeah they have really a great eye for visual effects in the game, and they have also tried to make it run on all systems, even the older ones like what I have. The company they have formed is named Endnight Games LTD , which is based up in Vancouver, Canada but they also use outside contractors to help with the game as well, and usually there are 5-10 others working on the game itself. So for a developer to ask for help outside their natural scope of office says a lot and says they are not afraid to ask for help on certain things, and that says a lot about them.
These guys are trying to create a stunning game for us to play, and I have watched countless hours of YouTube videos on it, and it’s in my game list, but I have yet to sit down and dedicate some time to play it for myself. Now it does come with various modes as well. It has the Vegan mode which means no cannibals, it has normal mode, and it does have a hard core mode for those that want it.It’s also another Co-op game and you can fun with your friends on it as well. It does have a story as well, and you can find out more by visiting the steam’s store page for them. But again hats off to these guys for creating a game, and listening to their community as well. So if you are into these type of games. Head on over to steam, via the links for there store pages, or just type in the game name and search for them yourself. Most of these games are not just on steam too, they are on places like Indie Database, and anywhere else the indie developers go to share their game, and to allow us early access for it, even though Steam’s EA is a good place as any to start. So happy gaming,and hope you enjoyed another day into Developer Appreciation.
