Black Forest is a (mostly) cooperative multiplayer game about survival. Strategy and resource management are other fitting words to describe it.

It is set in medieval Germany, in the forest of the same name. It is a casual game, meaning that you will spend anywhere from a few minutes to maybe half an hour on it per day.

In the game, each player controls one family in a village that is located deep in the forest. Everyone tries to survive the wolves, bears and worse that come at night. Plant and harvest, gather and build, cooperate and betray. Survive as a community, but do not forget about yourself. Try to survive the coming winter to win the game. Or simply be the last survivor to gain a personal victory.

The core element of the game is cooperation and its limits. At some point, you have to think of yourself first. If your community is strong, others will help you. But the forest will sooner or later overwhelm you all - when will cooperation break down? Will people betray openly, or trick? Is that proposal a trick maybe, or really the best? What role will common ground play? Does the village provide shelter for those who lost their homes? Do you share resources or keep them private? All of these and many other questions will be asked and answered in every game.

This game looks good! Is there any possibility of a review copy of this game? I could give some great feedback and an honest review with praise where its due and constructive criticism. I also have a big group of testers if you are willing to give extra keys and they are just waiting to play your game!

I feel like i need to make this clear, im not a scammer and i dont want payment to review the game, all i want is the game to review in the first place, giving me something to do is payment enough :) lol

I could even do some promoting for the game!

If you are interested add me on steam or email me at

Hi Masnik - the game is not easily translatable at this point, as I didn't write it with translation in mind. But I thank you for the offer, spaciba.
