I can’t really explain what my attraction to The Forest is. I don’t think I can quite place what attracts me to the genre-mashing indie game. I think the reasons may be manifold. And definitely nebulous. Definitely. I never thought I’d be completely addicted to an open-world survival horror lumberjack simulator (in alpha!). I never thought I’d be so determined to build traps made out of sticks and rocks. I never thought I’d cling to a log cabin pipe dream so dearly.
There’s just something so awesome about marauding mutant creatures who want nothing more than to destroy those who endeavor to create lincoln log masterpieces.
