Merry Christmas!

Hope you are all having a lovely time in these darkest days of the year. But as Auriea says: Winter is simply the time towards Spring. Every day will be longer than the previous day. The light is coming back!

Merry Christmas to all my dear deer!
Best wishes!

I'm afraid I have been a little optimistic. :_(

The commissioned project I am working on ran into some annoying technical problems that haven't been resolved yet.

And I wanted to start using a new version of Unreal Engine for The Endless Forest but I wasn't able to compile it from the source code. And this is required for building a dedicated server. So I will stick to the old version for now. Hopefully the source code will be fixed.

I hope you enjoyed Halloween this year! We certainly did. Even though I can't wait to do this in the remake!!

Anyway, Without being able to make any promises, I will try me best to free up as much time as possible for The Endless Forst. But I might also be traveling back to the old homeland this month since I haven't seen my parents or brother for almost two years, because of the pandemic.

I guess it's a good lesson in patience. :-/

On my way


For the past two months I have been working on another project, raising funds for the continuation of the remake of The Endless Forest. The other project is not entirely done yet and might in fact lead to something quite big later. But I will carve some time out for working on The Endless Forest again as of now. Because it would be nice to have a new build for Christmas, right? Smiling

Sorry for all the delays. Thank you for your patience!

Peace to all,

The game is up

I have updated a bunch of scripts to the requirements of the new server and it seems that logging into the game works again. Please let me know if you run into any errors!

A little patience

The web server that takes care of the login has been moved but there's still some technical issues. I will look into these next week when I get back to my computer. I'm currently off work because after a year of not seeing them, my children are finally visiting my home. Thank you for your patience. Sorry for the inconvenience.

The Endless Forest doesn't work at the moment

The game server that runs The Endless Forest is fine but the game relies on connections with And the old computer that hosted the domain has broken down after many years of loyal service. The entire website needs to be moved to another machine. This will take some time. Sorry about the inconvenience.

Community server has moved

As you may have noticed, the community website has been unavailable for a few days. This was caused by a severe malfunction on its server. As a result, the entire website has been migrated to another machine.

Please let us know if anything seems to be wrong.

TEF II: more fawn and all of the options and more

Time flies. But progress is being made, step by step.

Over the past three weeks I have continued the implementation of the fawn character and added all the items that are still relevant to the options menu. I want to add new options relevant to the current engine but only after the remake is fully finished. I couldn't resist adding an slider to increase the density of the forest, for those of you with powerful computers. And I have added the names of all backers to the credits (you can still join them, by the way).
