The Forest

The Forest is a 'survival horror' first person game on Steam Early Access for $15. Obviously no good.

In The Forest, the player must survive on a forested island after becoming the lone survivor of a plane crash by creating shelter, weapons, and other survival tools. Inhabiting the island, along with various woodland creatures, are a tribe of nocturnal, cannibalistic mutants who dwell in deep caves beneath the island. While they are not necessarily always hostile to the player, their usual behavior is aggressive, especially during the night.

This game kicks ass, and you say its no good because its $15? For being made by such a small team and actually being a game that does something for the survival horror genre it is awesome. Go rag on your own projects/ideas before you attack someone else's over a '$15 price tag'

I think the distaste might be because of the practice itself...charging people for them to beta test your game.

From what I've seen, they need to lower the health on the mutants, it takes a rediculous amount of swings from the ax to kill them.

True but its not like youre playing it as a favor to the devs, youre playing it as a game still. i wouldbt call my purchase beta testing as i havent reported 1 bug, i play it for entertainment. Im against certain early access practices but there are solid E.A. games out there and the game is going to cost money (if not more than what its at already) so its not like youre losing out on anything from the start.

I bought arma 3 early access for $30, and the full release went up like 10 bucks, definately was worth it. If youre expecting a top quality/glitchless game you shouldnt be buying early access in the first place ya know?

But i understand what youre saying shiken, i bought a few early access games (like stomping lands where the devs just disappear for very long periods of time) that make me hesitant on buying ea games.

Also on topic i agree rev, i know they just added starving cannibals and i believe they take just a few hits to kill

Yes, giving a lot more hit points just for the sake of lingering gameplay is like the downside of Hollywood: money and needing to release another movie to pay people, instead of doing a movie you really want. Once you have the idea out, you can't do it again. In other words, it's a bland feature, needless to speak of why.

About the pricing and how it's life or necessary to price things, there are still things about that that aren't really understandable. Like big marketing computer companies. Only the boss, or the people who run the entire business, really get to know how many of their computers sell, while the employees who sell them only get so much of the revenue. This means the Dell owners could be owning a big house with a pool right now. While that sounds a bit normal, it's also a pool they don't use, along with an extra car, motor cycle, fancy bicycle, etc. I think that's wrong, because it's greedy for no good purpose. They aren't using the stuff they buy. A lot of people do that, but look at us, or our friends we want to play with on Steam: we can't. We have wait until life expunges us since we buckled down, got a job, and a girlfriend/boyfriend. It's simply a fucked up mechanism that such things are a requirement in order for people to be allowed to feel happy about making choices they want now.

Furthermore on that subject, the ones making all the money probably forgot all about enjoying the simple things. Instead, they learned to live a bigger life. Sometimes, a bigger life could also be making more fun out of the simple things. That can get ghetto, but ghetto involves a more personal, risky tact on life. That shouldn't stop someone from living their life. Now, such people won't ever take notice of mods of Half Life and maybe help them out even if the developers here at NMRiH don't want money, because they are simply rich arseholes "who will pay you to buy the house you live in." Instead, it's about gambling and keeping up with friends who also chase their tails, forgetting how easy fun can still be. Worst of all, deep down below are the developers of The Forest, who produced a prehistoric setting involving 21st century humans, where the game is only fun to people who don't know great games, or people who have no problem buying and trying any game, even if they completely stop playing a month or so later. It's like we point out vital things to understand more about, like how long it takes for us to forget, yet somehow believe it's okay as long as we hope we get a proper respond to our posts! It's crazy how far a paradox can go in a simple topic like this, isn't it?
