So I got the opportunity to play this coop with someone. It's definitely a little buggy, but playable for sure. I had the best time in the ~25 hours I've had in the game during that 1 hour of coop. The biggest downside is that there is no way to save and reload a coop game. You can load a game you saved in coop mode, but you'll be playing it SP. So its basically a proof of concept coop tech demo, but you can't actually keep playing and building and such.

So it was totally worth it...
Hey man, I totally dig them working on this. Seems like they are progressing at a nice pace. Looking forward to getting online myself soon. Thanks for keeping me in the loop brother.

Was able to really survive, build a big base with walls and everything. It was pretty sexy. To do it right at this point, you need to set aside 2 hours and hope whoever is acting as the server doesnt crash or it's game over. For me, about an hour and a half in, my game crashed when accessing inventory. You don't want to hop back in and start from scratch after that.
Hopefully they hotfix the save issue, or they add the ability in the next patch ~2 weeks.

Played it for a bit yesterday with Cale and baron
my new fashion style
The Pop increase is nice..... But Damn there's still a bunch of Bugs present in the game
I love a heap of the additions they have added though, makes it much more enjoyable. Most of the bugs you can overlook for Co-op, but others are just downright annoying..
Such as how no fish seem to spawn anywhere, there's a limited amount of cannibals ( we only had groups attack for the first two nights, after that we searched around at day and night and couldn't see any)
There's a few sync issues, such as players not being able to see fires that other players make (with the exception of campfires)
The animal spawns still need to be reworked, we had 5 lizards spawn on top of each other each time we killed one, then after the first 2 days never saw another lizard on the map.
There's currently also no saving for Co-op and you have to direct connect via IP which can get frustrating as you have to forward your ports if you want to actually host.
It still has bad physics, we made a tree house then I decided to chop down the tree while they were not looking, The tree fell down but the tree house stayed floating with its alien technology.
there's an annoying buy with items such as the pacemaker or walkie talkie, where the UI telling you what button you press to close the item stay's up...forever
You currently cannot see other players items that are dropped on the ground and there are bad sync issues with the UI for building, as it displayed an incorrect number as it didn't count the other players logs, sticks .etc
Overall its a fun game, but needs a lot more work on the core structure before more flashy things are added

The bugs aren't game breaking, but definitely some annoying ones. The global sounds were the worst, quite unnerving to hear another players axe swing while you're crafting. Especially as Star can't fully grasp the idea of co-op gameplay
I can see myself playing this a whole lot more now with multiplayer mode, hopefully data saves are implemented next.

Bought this game during the steam sale and played with some friends. Really enjoy some of the core concepts they've incorporated. I'm liking the fact that you can prevent night attacks from the tribal cannibals if you avoid the scouting party from ever making contact with you. If they do make contact as long as you kill the entire party before they can get back to their respective dwelling that also prevents larger raids from seeking you out. I also like the fact that you can scare them off by simply standing your ground or killing their leader. Of course that doesn't always work and after you start killing them in droves it stops working altogether. I read somewhere that the devs want the game to play out similarly to "I am Legend" (the book, not the movie). Well worth the ten bucks I spent picking it up, but as others have mentioned the bugs in the game can get rather annoying in co-op.

so i had a few hours game play at a mates on sunday.
The Forest fuckin rocks. i havnt looked yet but could some of you guys post some screenies please or even some vids of your base/ camp/ home.
the game ended when my mate got sprung by 2 natives. it was on a MP server him as host (one person only).
i found a re-breather, an air tank, a modern axe, a cassette player with a tape. and when we built a small animal trap we were able to capture live rabbits. we also built some storage racks (logs, sticks, rocks). it was an awesome few hours, i really enjoyed the concept and i shall keep up with how it develops.
i still cant believe how immersed i was!
if i had a PC still i would spend all my time in The Forest
