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 Q1 in 2019.”

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.”
