The Forest
« on: May 09, 2013, 03:42:39 PM »
You're stranded in a forest after a plane crash. To stay alive you'll have to chop down trees, build shelter, hunt for food, maintain a fire to stay warm, plant vegetation, and set traps. For you see, this is no ordinary forest, but rather a forest inhabited by freakish cannibalistic mutants.

Correct. It's the sequel to 2011's 'The Desert'. In that game, we saw the elderly racing across the desert dunes of WA in motorized wheelchairs/fords before they died of dehydration.

Cool, if they can pull it off

Rather than acting like dumb, evil monsters, they’ll display caution and empathy for each other. They won’t rush you and explode like Minecraft Creepers. They may follow you from afar, call for backup when attacked, and mourn their friends you’ve defeated.
