Ambitious open-world horror game The Forest detailed

Jeffrey Matulef (Eurogamer) : When I think about games that have disappointed me, I can't help but think of BioShock. It's not that Irrational's dystopian shooter was a bad game, but it wasn't really what I thought it was going to be. I was lured in by the premise of being an anonymous survivor desperately trying to escape the ruined, mutant-infested remains of a spectacular underwater city. I thought you'd get to navigate this environment in an open-ended fashion, taking advantage of a supposedly rich ecology of mutated miscreants. Instead it ended up being a bunch of linear corridors full of one-dimensional kill-happy characters and binary choices. (PC, The Forest)

I have very much been hyped for this game ever since I knew of its existence, but there has been little seen of it.
Nice to see such an in-depth article. Also nice to see that development, at this time, is focused purely on PC, so they really aren't limited there.
They talk of possibly bringing the game to consoles sometime down the road, so I hope they put just as much effort in maximizing the game's potential on those platforms as they are here.
