Greetings from Siberia! I do not speak English, so for the translation of gratitude users "Yozr" and "illusion"

This is my first experience of development. Made on CryEngine Free SDK 3.4.5.

To start you need to register on , this a feature of the free version of the engine. The game was tested on the computer: i7 860, radeon HD5870, ddr3 8gb FPS on average 50-70.

I hope you enjoy the game.

The Cursed Forest is now available for purchase in early access, and can be bought here:
Once you have installed it you will be able to play through the first chapter of the game. We would like to take this time to warn you that as you are buying the game while it is in early access, you may encounter some glitches, crashes or other problems. We will be constantly working to fix this through multiple game patches. The good news is that our game testers didn’t encounter any critical crashes while playing the game, so if you find one please open a discussion topic and fully describe the location your error occurred. If you can provide us with a screenshot of the problem you encountered that would also be greatly appreciated.

We aim to release the next three chapters of the game this year and as free updates to your existing purchase. Unfortunately, after adding each new section, the game’s progress will be set back to the start and you will need to fully replay from the beginning. Because of this we recommend that you wait until the full release, unless you wish to support us during our development.

I'm stuck in one of the houses later in the game. Where you go in and get a stone, then as you're leaving he shows up and I have to run back into the room I got the stone, then the house shakes and then the door opens but when I try to leave he kills me every time.

Hey there, first of all I started a let's play of this game :
[on version 1.4]

Here's a couple of things I'd like to discuss.
So, since there aren't many indie horror games coming out lately, it's a great thing to see a game like this. The atmosphere is great, and the game itself is pretty unique. The whole idea with ''I'll show you where the monster is, and you'll still go there and get killed'' is amazing xD I mean, I knew where it is and I still went to those places out of curiosity, which always killed me. Like I said, atmosphere is amazing. The design on the other hand is more than just amazing - yes, it's just a forest, but everything seemed so realistic. Graphics are great and the FPS was really good for those graphics. I have only 2 complaints :
1] Why is there no saving option, now I have to replay the whole game to get back to where I was...
2] Why can't I go in non fullscreen mode from the settings, but only in-game (that is a problem when trying to record with fraps).
As I was saying, the game deserves easily 9/10, but I'll give it a 10/10 because of how everything is executed, aside of those 2 little things.
Hope to see more games like this in the future :)
