Forest Sharks: The Forest, that survival horror game with cannibalistic mutants, just got a big 'ol update with lots of fixes, changes and bug-squashing. The update includes stuff like sharks and a more dramatic scene involving your son, Timmy. Neat.
But nope. Case in point: a terrifying new gameplay trailer for Darkwood, the procedurally generated top-down survival horror game we showed you two months back.

Nearly a year ago, the Dead Space 2 production team crowdsourced one of the game's signature kill animations, in which the player and a necromorph are locked in combat. "Meat Cello," which you'll see when the game releases, was chosen.
