Interesting Game of the Week: The Endless Forest

Another blurb this week, and I encourage everyone to go download this game and to try it.

Ok, so picture this: you are a deer with the head of a human. You live in a beautiful forest, and within that forest you will find other human-headed deer to frolic with. Occasionally, two Gods appear and do some cool things.

There is no chat, no combat, or levels.

Your "name" is a symbol above your head.

Really, the game is just a screen saver that you download and install and that runs whenever your PC goes to sleep mode. Or, you can log in at any time to explore and to meet others. The community is active and although development is slow, the project is very, very interesting. At the very least it is a neat way to lean back with some good music to enjoy some cool sights.

The music, the sights, the art design...all speak of a possible future of gaming that is much more than just logging in to kill monsters. Gaming like this is an artistic movement, like a piece of music. I see projects like this and dream of games that have no usual limitations, or of MMOs that ignore the normal set of rules for design or game-play.

It will happen sooner than later, I think.

Go try the game. Think of all the possibilities gaming offers now and will offer in the future. And be sure to sit in the mushroom circle for a long time, at least long enough for a surprise to happen.

Interesting.  Our world in gaming is so small right now with so little room for truly new ideas.  Creations like this are interesting sidebars that might well hint at things to come.

quick question on the game.

1. Does the "forest" look like that(the pictures) all the time?  I detest how "forests" are represented in games and those picks aren't giving me any hope

2. How big is the world roughly?

 Well, it's more of a panoramic picture that you can walk in. It's not huge, but does go on "forever" by scolling the landscape. I hope that makes sense.

 The company makes games that are pretty experimental, and this one is kind of a chance to see how players will react in an environment that isn't like normal MMO's. It's not even really a game, but it'll get your imagination going! :)
