The Endless Forest is a multiplayer screensaver where everyone plays a magical deer. There’s no goals or missions or chat. Gameplay consists of discovery and creative communication in a peaceful landscape filled with surprises. The project is continuously being developed further in collaboration with the players of the game.
The Forest of Phase Three has doubled in size, so now you can roam even farther and enjoy the new sights and sounds. The new area features a completely new landscape, with birch trees and sycamores, blue berries and little birds that sit on your antlers if you’re very very quiet. Which is impossible when you’re a Fawn, of course! New players will play the game as a young deer before they acquire the full potential of the well known human-faced avatar. To make sure the Fawns remain amused, a little playground has been added, a quarry of sorts, with big boulders to jump on and hide under.
Phase Three also includes a major overhaul of the game engine with better performance and lower memory requirements. Even the file size of version 3.0 is less than that of 2.0, despite of the additional features (under 50 MB!).
130.000 Downloads and 18.000 registrations after the first release 2 short years ago, the artistic MMO project has more momentum than ever. A lively community that actively participates in the design of the game. Ever growing numbers of active players (between 1200 and 1800 unique players every month). With live performances and presentations at museums, community centers, and media art festivals. From its beginnings as an experimental project, The Endless Forest has now gained a place for itself on the daily menu of many online gamers and art lovers.
