Wicked Forest: Online open world RPG shooter

Hi

I just submitted to the App Store an open world 3rd/1st person RPG shooter with survival elements: Wicked Forest.

It is an online only multiplayer game that will intro at $1.99 with no iAP. You can start with your own world to build and harvest resources, scavenge for supplies/weapons, or you can join another world to raid. Every world is open to anyone. Beta tests have found players who are peaceful builders to aggressive players who only raid other player worlds. Prepare to meet all types of players. Full realtime chat system, customizable character, crafting, scavenging, acquiring resources, 30+ firearms and melee weapons, network only features (WIFI recommended) and much much more.

iPhone 5 and equivalent and above. Essentially, you need 1GB RAM to play. Network only.

AppStore Description:

Survival: The Wicked Forest.

After awakening in a forest cold and helpless, your mission is to survive. Forage the forest for crafting items, or scavenge scattered buildings to help your survivor cope with the dangers of The Wicked Forest. Beware the night, powerful lurking creatures will come until dawn.

Build up your own world by crafting shelters, buildings, water pumps, weapons or invade other worlds to steal supplies. Of all the dangers in The Wicked Forest, be aware of others players. Will they be friend or foe? What will you be when you join another players world? Are they there to help you build your world or to steal your supplies and resources. Resources are fixed and will not replenish. Protect what you have. Play up to 12 players per world.

NOTICE! The Wicked Forest requires a network connection. iPhone 5 and equivalent and above.

Happy to answer questions.

Thanks!

Sadly, no. At the moment the main character is male only. He is, however; very customizable with 5 different types of clothing, backpacks, and weapons that will differentiate your player from others.

Okay so loaded question for you Dev. Will this be left at the release or are you going to continue to further the game and update it? Because the App Store is full of games like this that are released and left to burn. It would be nice for some dedication for a game like this. Side note I am not calling you out nor am I giving you shit. I just really want a game like this with substance and a good community base. Also is this game set to release soon. Sorry for the ignorant question.

Thanks for your interest. Wicked Forest resulted in a re-write of Barren Roads. My initial tests with Barren Roads suggested that I didn't get it right with my first builds. So, Wicked Forest is a fraction of Barren Roads with far improved network capabilities. However, there are some similarities.

Another question, is this going to be randomly generated, or just the same world in different servers? And is there a chat system? That would be nice. Vehicles too.

Is barren roads going to be a release of its own or is wicked forest the new barrens roads?

Fair question. Most people have that expectations for games.

Wicked Forest is a simple online open world RPG shooter. It is not designed to be all encompassing GTA-esque of open world shooters. It is a small streaming multiplayer game that will allow players to enjoy survival, crafting, fort building, and resource gathering in a multiplayer environment.

The submitted build has bugs in it and sometimes things break. I have had ongoing beta tests for the past two months and felt like it was at a point (with player feedback) where I could do updates and revisions on the App Store in the same manner as I have been with Test Flight. Its not for everyone. I open to hearing everyone's suggestions and will continue to improve it as long as it has players. The entertainment value of Wicked Forest is based on the players involved. And as long as it has players, I will continue to improve it.

Thanks again.

There is a realtime chat system. But, not VOIP. Worlds are fixed with randomly generated building and resource spawns so each world will be different.

There are no vehicles planned at the moment. Apologies, but the terrain and map was not designed for efficient use of vehicles.
