The Forest gameplay: Our first life (and death) in the wilds

The Forest is one of the more punishing survival games we've played recently — partially because of its cannabilistic inhabitants, but also because, due to its Early Access nature, it's still a bit rough around the edges. If you're curious about the game, which shot to the top of the Steam charts following its release earlier today, you can check out our first attempt at The Forest in the video above. Spoiler alert: It does not end well. Or begin well, for that matter. In the whole video, nothing especially "well" happens to us.
