The Endless Forest is a multiplayer online game for Windows in which the player is a deer in a peaceful forest without goals or the ability to chat. Unique pictograms above registered deer's heads represent their names. Players communicate with one another through sounds and body language. During ABIOGENESIS, every deer runs around, rubs against trees, or sits next to sleeping deer to cast Forest Magic on one another or party under a night sky filled with floral fireworks in a spectacle, created in realtime, by authors whenever the mood hits them. The Endless Forest can be run as a screensaver or an application.
Tale of Tales is a Belgian games development company founded in 2003 by Auriea Harvey and Michaël Samyn, better known as "Entropy8Zuper!". The Endless Forest was created by a small team of professionals. Their goal is to explore the potential of the games medium as an artistically expressive form of entertainment.
A notable aspect of The Endless Forest is the community involvement. The Tale of Tales website has a forum and a community site where many players post their ideas and feedback for The Endless Forest , which can affect the development of the game.
The creators of The Endless Forest strived to create a very artistic game , a moving painting. Dubbed by its developers as a "multiplayer online game and social screensaver", The Endless Forest is not a mainstream MMORPG – it is highly unlike other MMORPGs. The most notable difference between The Endless Forest and other MMORPGs is the lack of violence and human communication (talking) in-game.
