Pictogram generations

As many of you know, the pictograms that identify deer in The Endless Forest are regularly updated. This way the era when you started playing becomes part of your deer's identity. Pictograms are not just decorations, they are names that belong to a single character. This is why we discourage donating or trading pictograms. They are part of the story of the Forest.

So please, do not try to acquire pictograms from previous generations, or any pictograms that were registered by somebody else.

They are not commodities. They are identities.
Please respect that.
And add to the story of The Forest over time.


Thank you.

Raising funds for the Forest

The IndieGogo campaign to remake The Endless Forest with new technology closed with an amazing 86% of its target collected. That's fantastic! Thank you all for your support.

This means that the remake will definitely happen!

I'm sure we can count on you to collect the remainder of the budget now that we have a bit more time. You can do that here.

Fan art in the game!

Hello there!
I am Margo Putzeys, a student Game- and Digital Design and I am currently doing my internship with Tale of Tales. I am still studying but I will be entering my Master year next schoolyear.
For my internship Auriea Harvey and Michael Samyn asked me if I wanted to work with the players and make models and concept art together. And with great pleasure I accepted this of course! This means you will be able to add art to the game!

But there are some 'rules' attached to this: If you make a 3D model, pleas send it as an .OBJ file to me. But a .Blender file ( Blender's file extension ) would be even better! But a .OBJ is good as well! As for the concept art you can send a photoshop file, PNG of JPEG.

So what can you make? Well it's like a set that the deers can wear in the game! This set includes: a mask, antlers and a pelt. Both made for the adult deer AND the baby deer. You can (if some of you know how and want to) texture these models by using a UV map. If you do texture them, send texture files as a PNG. ( PNG supports transparancy )
But of course you are never obligated to making more than you like. The meaning of this task is also for me to make stuff, so if you only would like to make the adult deer's models, that's fine by me. I can always texture them, add models, etc.

So if any of you are interested in putting your art or 3D models in the game. Send them to me and I can adjust them if necessary or take a look if something needs to be changed and so on.
You can of course also send your concept art to me and I can realise that concept art into a 3D model which may have a chance to be put in the actual game: The Endless Forest!

My e-mail adres is : Margo.Putzeys@gmail.com. I hope I will be hearing soon from you guys!!

Greetings,
Margo


EDIT: from Michael and Auriea --
To be clear, we want Margo to do ALL of the modeling and ALL of the texturing. Because that is what her internship is about.

13 Years Have Passed

Dear fellow players,

Today marks my 13th anniversary for being on this game and community since 2010. I have played this game for such a long time. I hope everyone is well. For years, I have helped numerous players keep their physical avatar appearances and giving candles for new players. I wonder if there is a way for me to still become a backer for the new version of The Endless Forest. I hope to enjoy playing the game in the years ahead and seeing my old friends and making new ones.

May the Lord bless you with peace, prosperity, and joy.

See you in the forest. Smiling
Starling's picture

/shelter/




Starling - toyhouse - she/they
discord: pixeldeer#6405


• Russet-coloured coat, deer-faced
• Wears anything in-game & likes creature spells
• Welcomes any company! friends, strangers, come chill with her

Starling sometimes feels like a bit of a lost soul; drifting through each hour like a ghost. This deer is incredibly introverted and her social-energy can drain very quickly. As of more recent years, her shift in age has reconnected with deeper roots, and she will at times naturally fall into a feral state of mind. She is drawn to herds, though enjoys being on the outer edges and being able to come and go with ease.

May be unresponsive whilst I work throughout the day. But I'm often checking in and will probably see if you stop by! any company is welcome & appreciated. <3

Encounter





Fawn, Frog.
You've heard of lowpoly frog, now get ready for warped 2D frog.
Somewhat dedicated to the frog I saw a while ago while hanging out near the stream, under the "66" username.

The peacock is one of my fave pelts/sets, despite its meme status.
