Is it just me, or does the above image look like a still from a next-gen Friday the 13th game? I can easily picture Jason Voorhees stalking a gaggle of horny camp counselors from behind one of those gorgeous trees. That screenshot, as well as the handful more I have waiting after the jump, is from the indie horror game The Cursed Forest. It’s a beautiful game, thanks in part to the engine that powers it. It’s using the same powerful engine behind Crysis 3, as well as the upcoming co-op shooter Evolve.
Much of the game is still shrouded in mystery. It’s official summary offers sparse details, outside of a somewhat cryptic “Gather everything you need to perform the ritual, to clear an innocent soul from the defilement. You will not pass if you do not collect things for the ritual.” You had me at ritual. Read on for more.
For more on The Cursed Forest, feel free to follow it on IndieDB. If your computer can handle it, its developer has made a Russian language version of the game available for download.
