Anyone else played the "The Forest" yet?
It's neat hardcore survival game where you are stuck on an island with cannibals, has a very horror/creepy/realistic approach to it. I actually enjoyed it quite a bit and feel when complete (as it is in very very very early alpha) it could be a really good game!

If anyone wants to see it, here is a youtube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mMNDEOcIyrg

Here is the steam store page for the game http://store.steampowered.com/app/242760/

Nothing like being attacked from behind to find yourself waking up in a cave, darkness surrounds you and you just walk where ever you can. You see a giant cavern, the water shining and reflecting off the surface of the rock. It's then you see a strange orange light, different than the rest, all the way up on the roof of this cavern, next to a stalagmite. You focus on it, trying to get closer.

Then you realize that this light isn't natural, it's fire and when there is fire someone has to start it. You cannot see what is up there hiding between the stalagmites, you just know you don't want it to see you. Sneaking your way past the light source, hiding behind rocks and following the wall of the cavern you see a gate. Suddenly the light source on the roof is gone however and you see nothing but a naked man with sharp teeth, soaked in blood rushing towards you.


The game feels pretty damn creepy when stuff like that happens to you ^

Fixed but in all the game is good they do gotta fix a few things like the flare gun duplicating and they also gotta make the cannibals easier to kill because my god they can take a hit! also if you guys are on the fence I saw wait because they haven't added the "save" option so when you exit you start all over!

Well... First of all an easy way to kill the cannibals is this.
Use molotovs, how do you get them?
Alcahol + cloth = molotov

When i got off the plane i could make 10 molotovs just then.

ALSO to survive very easy, make sure to go to the beach! There is a boat and you can hide on there very easily.
If you want to see me survive then watch my video on my youtube channel.

Best way to deal with the mutants are traps, lots of them. Effigies work but not all the time.

Flare guns as of right now has infinite ammo, so it makes it easily the most overpowered weapons. Also, you can build walls without doors to keep yourself safe and cozy. You can spam jump up the walls to get out on both sides to make it safer than doors. Also building fires around your walls and lighting them from the inside of the walls is possible. Most of the mentioned methods will probably be patched soon... so enjoy safety while it lasts!

Yeah, I've heard they already patched in sharks. Boat safety goes from 10 to 0 that fast.
