Creepy screenshots of Oculus Rift horror game The Forest
J Thoendell stashed this in Oculus
While little is known about The Forest at this point, SKS has previously revealed the game is an open-world survival horror with a real emphasis on survival – not only do you have to defend yourself against the game's creepy enemies, you must gather supplies and materials to build and maintain a shelter in said forest, involving everything from chopping wood to growing and maintaining your own food.The screens certainly invoke this kind of sensibility, with a number of naturalistic scenes of varying degrees of danger. Of course, again, the game is being designed with the Oculus Rift in mind.As SKS puts it, "you enter a living, breathing forest with changing weather patterns, plants that grow and die. Tides that roll in and out with the day/night cycle. Below ground, explore a vast network of caves and underground lakes." You can also set up traps, but it's unclear how integral this is to the gameplay.
