Among Trees is a sandbox survival game in which we try to survive alone in the forest. The production, which was announced at The Game Awards 2018 ceremony, was made by an independent FJRD Interactive studio. The title is the first serious project of the studio that has debuted in Steam Early Access on PCs.
Among Trees recalls dozens of other survival productions that have flooded the PC market in recent years. The action is observed from the first person perspective. The player's character status is described by several indicators, such as health and hunger, which change over time and depend on the situation in which we find ourselves. The game takes place in a forest far from any civilization. Players have a small wooden cottage at their disposal, which they can expand, as well as a set of tools and basic supplies that allow them to survive for a long time.
During the game we explore the forest and nearby caves and hills. Players need to get food by hunting, fishing or picking mushrooms and fruits in order to survive. The game has cooking mechanics, which lets you cook different dishes and grow plants. Sometimes players may come across a dangerous predator, such as a bear, which has to be killed or avoided from afar. Dynamic weather also has an important influence on our chances of survival - e.g. during a snow storm we have to find a safe and warm shelter.
Among Trees is characterized by a very colorful graphics design. Pastel colours and a complex lighting system create an interesting calm atmosphere that distinguishes the title from the competition.
