In The Lab: The Forest

Welcome to In The Lab, Geekenstein’s livestreaming show where we check out the upcoming and recently released games to see if they’re worth your time and money. Here Alex and David check out the latest survival game, this one with a horror twinge. The Forest, as Alex put it, is Don’t Starve in 3D.

In The Forest, you play a passenger on an airliner that crashes into a mysterious forest on an island. Taking an ax you find in the wreckage, you build yourself a shelter and gather resources to ensure your survival. Unfortunately there seems to be a race of people, some looking mutates, building effigies in the forest and coming after you for ritualistic purposes.
