What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“With players providing feedback after they finish each early access section, we can use their invaluable opinions to shape the complete game. This includes information on what is running smoothly and what needs tweaking, what you would like to see changed or added, and even your moral support, all of which we will review to determine what can be changed for the better.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to have the final version of the game completed and released by the Q4 in 2018.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

In the full version we are hoping to include:
  • New and previously unseen locations..
  • Finessed gameplay shaped using some of the views and ideas of early access players.
  • Added in-game events and more hidden secrets to discover.
  • Improved character and object models.
  • An expanded upon and complete storyline.
  • A full set of achievements.
  • Linux support.
  • Possible translation into other languages such as Spanish, Japanese, German and French.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The completed game will be structured into five main segments that are comprised of many different interconnecting locations and events. Right now we are making the last 5th section and after that we will be ready to make full game release.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?


How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The original version of The Cursed Forest has a lot of fans; we hope that their support will carry over into helping us improve our new version of the game.
We want to improve the quality of the game by watching player’s Let’s Plays, reading player’s reviews, emails, messages on social networks and forums. We will analyse this feedback and compile a list of what needs to be done, and use this to determine what we can improve.”

Happy Halloween! The Cursed Forest v0.7.2.

Happy Halloween!

All point to the fact that is the last Halloween that The Cursed Forest will celebrate in the early access. For now, all is going as it was planned. We plan to make release in the second part of November.

Demo version that we promised to make is ready, but still needed to do a few corrections. So, it will take some time.

Demo version will include the first section (fully updated) of The Cursed Forest. We hoping that this demo version will introduce our game to the new players, which will be able to play it and consider about buying the full version.

Also, we made some improvements:
  • The starting part of the first section is more improved. How you think is it become better?
  • Small optimization for the all sections
  • Small game-notes corrections.
  • A new loading screen is added.

Player TheReaperUK, tried The Cursed Forest through Steam Proton: He had some small problems but mainly game there is working not bad. If someone else tried to launch The Cursed Forest through Steam Proton, don’t be shy and let us know about your experience in this game forum topic in Steam discussions: It can help us to fix problems that we able to fix.

We still continue working on our game and hope that we can make it as we planned. Not so much things are left to do, stay tuned.
