Forest of Sleep is a procedurally generated graphical storytelling game, inspired by Eastern European folktales. The game is beautifully hand-illustrated and animated, with a specially commissioned soundtrack of regional folk music. Forest of Sleep will combine centuries-old ideas of folk tale plot, structure and character with frameworks for procedurally generating stories — each play through you make decisions that the game plays with to build your individual story. This playful collaboration is driven by an ambitious system that works with the player to produce stories and situations that follow similar patterns – as in folktales – but satisfyingly different and surprising each time.
