The Forest has played a survival game of its own, passing Steam Greenlight way back in 2013 before sitting in Early Access for the next four years. It’s been a long, grueling road, but in 2018 the launch version of The Forest finally hit. For the hundreds of thousands of fans, this didn’t disappoint. The Forest is survival with brutal horror elements, dropping the player deep into a forest filled with cannibalistic mutants. Scavenge resources, fight to survive, and try not to end up with your head on a stick and your thigh on a plate. What’s not to love.
