Ten thousand Deer in the virtual Woods
The Endless Forest crosses the 10,000 registered users mark
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Gent, Belgium, 16 January 2007
Today, the number of confirmed registered players of The Endless Forest has exceeded ten thousand, while the artistic game project has been downloaded over 64,000 times since its first release in September 2005.
The Endless Forest is a social screensaver. A multiplayer game without goals or chat. A peaceful environment where every player is represented as a deer, running around, rubbing trees and sleeping in the sun. And casting Forest Magic on each other or partying under a night sky filled with floral fireworks during ABIOGENESIS, a spectacle created in realtime by authors Auriea Harvey and Michael Samyn whenever the mood hits them.
Tale of Tales is a Belgian games development company founded by former internet artists Auriea Harvey and Michael Samyn, better known as "Entropy8Zuper!". Their goal is to explore the potential of the games medium as an artistically expressive form of entertainment.
The Endless Forest is supported by Musée d'Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean in Luxemburg, Vlaams Audiovisueel Fonds and Design Vlaanderen.
