    Lets see Bear Grylls survive this sh*t! lol

    But it does look pretty neat. A survival game where you actually have to SURVIVE.

    Yea, I like the direction these types of games have been going in..
    Just the sheer will to survive.
    Not a million guns and rocket launchers, to kill a million undead swarms..
    Use your wit, run or die..

    I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this..
    I'm going to post about another horror you guys might like as well. I found it on greenlight.
    Hasn't come out yet.

    whatever engine they are using looks very impressive for just an Indie game. With the weather effects and lighting.

    Yea, I'm all over this when I get my Oculus rift. hehehe :toast: I'd like to know what engine as well. It's possible it's unity or unreal engine, but I doubt it's the source engine. Of course i've been wrong before.. some people have really made the source engine look great. I can't wait for the new source2 engine..

    EDIT: I just checked and it uses the Blender Game Engine.

    that doesn't make any sense. why not make it trying to find water/food and fending off bears? the last thing i am going to care about after a plane crash is ghosts.

    Because that's the direction they wanted to take it!? Is that so hard to believe and understand?

    That's one hell of a crack torch, to light that much area.

    Needs a nerf.

    Maybe, but they'd do much better making it about actual survival of the elements, not the supernatural.

    Forest + Ghosts = stupid.

    Financially? That cant be decided, you dont know which consumer base would harbor better results.
    For the few that want a purebred survival game, it would be really cool and nice to play, even i admit i want that, but it depends on where the money is in the market.
    Right now teenagers making lets play scary forest horror games videos bring more public advertising.

    It does..heck even the green on the tenth hole at the golf course at night time is spooky.

    Now a forest where you think you're alone, after a tragic accident + you're trying to survive off the land...I'd say fear of the dark would get the better of most people.

    It's the not knowing that's the worst.

    yes. how am i going to be scared playing a horror game after my character survived a plane crash. if i survived a plane crash in real life the last thing i would care about are ghosts. i would feel invincible. i would grab some grub and shoot off some flairs like a boss. :pimp:
