The Forest of Love
WE GOT A FUCKIN STEAM PAAAAAGE LES GOOOOO!
(Germany folks aren't able to view it, sorry!)
Itch.io only: Dustin's mini game is unreliable. Gets off beat and may result in a crash. We definitely encourage folks to download and play the game on the desktop!
Yo folks! Thanks a ton for all of your support and interest <3! We've now got a fix out for some of the pesky bugs on the last build. Unfortunately, your saves will (likely) not carry over, so we have enabled several CHEATS to help you skip/catch up on what you've already done.
What's new with this Fix:
- Fixes Penny/Mabel Date
- Fixes Dustin's Novice level being accessible too soon
- Adds a bunch of Cheats to help quickly navigate through the game.
- Makes Chapter Select work as expected.
- `Once a chapter is unlocked it is unlocked permanently.
- "Non-Linear Data" (Gossips/Dates/Gifts) will PERSIST through chapter select
- To completely clear your save, you will have to go to options>Delete Save
- Skip the plant quest minigame (type "plant" once the minigame starts, after plant scene)
- Reset hits in the Dustin dash minigame (type "hits" after the minigame starts)
- Activate invincibility in the Dustin dash minigame (type "safe" after the minigame starts)
- Unlock all chapters for chapter select (type "story" in the Start menu or Pause menu)
- Unlock & auto-complete all gossips (type "gossip" in the Pause menu)
- Unlock & auto-complete all dates (type "date" in the Pause menu)
- Unlock all gallery scenes (type "movies" in the Gallery menu)
⚠️ NOTICE ⚠️
For the best experience, download the game and play it on your desktop! WebGL works, but save data does NOT persist after you close the tab. And the game is getting long :x
⚠️To Windows Users: ⚠️
The game will act funky if you bury the folder DEEP in windows explorer. For example, C/Users/Desktop/Newfolder/etc/etc/etc/etc < This sort of thing will result in too long of a directory path, and they game will act funky.
IT'S TIME Y'ALL~! Time for ACT 2!
First off, we're pretty dang blown away the support and attention this game has received here on Itch! We're happy to see folks enthused to give our little game a try :> Thank you all for looking, playing, commenting etc! Let me answer a few questions I see coming up pretty often.
- YES The game is in production. We do it full time, it just takes a while to make sure things are solid. On our Patreon, we have Weekly Posts, Monthly Builds, and you get access to our Discord.
- We are ONLY releasing full acts on Itch.io. Act 1 had a release, this is our Act 2 release, Act 3 will have its own, etc.
- The game is free on Itch.io. We will be looking at getting it on Steam very soon (Likely for 10 bucks or so). Patreon members, we got you, don't worry.
- We DO NOT have touch support yet. But some higher-end tablets can play the Itch.io version! It works on my 2020 Ipad Pro. Keyboard and Xbox Controller work as well! (this is not the best experience, but it is do-able!) Once we're on steam, we'll look at getting it verified for the Steam Deck as well!
OK Onto Act 2. We've got a lot of new stuff to show!
- ALL NEW MUSIC! Same tunes, but remastered/reworked!
- 17 Illustrated nsfw scenes! Some are multi-part!
- 4 New animations!
- Meet 4 New critters!
- Introducing Dustin's Dodge Challenge minigame!
- New "Critter Dates" mechanic! Pop in on other critter's dates and see what they're up to!
- Something happening in the forest? Rascal's involvement in the forest accelerates the plot and elements of the game! Act 2 starts to show what things we have planned :)
- Chapter Select! As you progress, you'll be able to hop back to previous sections of the game. This does wipe your save progress for now though. We will be working on this feature in the future, it was a bug testing thing that we decided might be pretty dope to clean up.
- Particle Effects baybeeee!
- New Title Screen! It's sleek!
- Much more! We've got a few new systems in place that will flourish in our future builds!
You'll just have to see for yourself! Give it a shot and let us know what ya think!
Oh, here's a list of a few bugs we're aware of:
- Interacting with Penny will mess with the Background Audio levels in Central Forest. It'll go back to normal eventually.
- WebGL has a loud hiss that happens. Likely due to audio memory allocation for browsers.
So what's next?
First, we'll be taking a little break! Then we will be transitioning our entire game to a fresh project. Vixel's super stoked about this transition and what it's gonna save him in terms of time and bug-busting. It'll be a lot of work, but absolutely worth it! He's already started the process several weeks ago!
Then we'll be going full hog into Act 3! As I said, tons of content is already prepared for it, Hopefully we'll be looking at quicker turn around times per-act. But we'll see. We are doing our best not to over-stress ourselves out with deadlines, and just letting things get completed when they do!
That's it! Please enjoy <3!

oooh this is so cool that game . are there any game like this game plzz if there any game any one know it plzz tell me
Excuse me, what should I do when the fish in the water come out? thank you
Does anybody know how I can unlock Story 05? Thanks.
I played this last November and i loved every minute of it this game reminds me of undertale with the deeper lore and adorable characters plus the hours of content. but to end it here this game is great and if you are a furry or is just really horny you should play this
when i get the floaties and jump in the water and then get out the game glitches and makes the panda go in and out SOOOO much. sometimes its doesn't stop.
the best way around this is only just go into the ledge and stop and dont go in at angles only straight on
Can't wait for the 3rd act to come out
Please add a way to rebind controls. Not all of us use QWERTY keyboards.
Note for Linux users (at least for Manjaro with the Plasma desktop environment, not sure about other distros or DEs):
After extracting, you may need to go into the executable's properties to the Permissions tab and check the "Is executable" box. Additionally, your DE/file manager may say something like "For security reasons, launching executables is not allowed in this context." when trying to double-click the executable. If this happens, you'll probably need to run it via a console command (or equivalent, like right-clicking and clicking "Run In Konsole") or create a .desktop file or whatever the equivalent is for your machine (I'm pretty new to Linux myself so I don't really know a whole lot about how things work normally)
how i can unlock the "stories" 16 and 18
(sorry if something is bad redacted i dont speak english)
I haven't gotten 18, but for 16, you go back to the girls, select the dialogue about bukkake, and you select ladies!
I scrolled through the comments and found how to get 18! "For those who havent got the last story scene, Beat Dustin's novice level without getting hit, then you should unlock the final scene for act 2, hope the next acts come out soon" you can scroll down and upvote Kneets' comment so others can see it!
When is the steam on the shelf
what is the point of asking if you like anal just to say too bad instead of having to start the event and use a code to skip the event have the choice actually mean something!
edit:No wonder you can't just skip it you made jokes about getting buttfucked by it and can't out right say you don't enjoy it. This game is just for gays like every other furry game on this shitty site. What a waste of time.
^ Someone left their trash-talking child above, pick them up please.
If ya don't like the game, don't play it, prick :) no reason to spread hate just because you don't like gay people :)
man, you seem to actually be offended by the existence of anal in this game. Like, if it's not your cuppa, you can just click through it and not have it mentally devastate you like this. There's also m/f so it's not JUST for gays. Sorry that you're so offended by gay content just existing.
Anybody know a channel who make horror gore animation video. I remember there is a snake who head can fell and a video where a boy is running from a big monster and a guy with a noble or magician suit come out and stop the monster and try to show friendly to the boy but maybe he is the headmaster who created all of these monster.
Exelent work, really good quality and love put into the project. Just a bit laggy when there's too much npc in the scene, like the bridge and the ruins scenes
how do you meet the final critter and see the final story
Beautiful artwork and fun characters! Almost went straight to Patreon to support, but was really disappointed when the game forces you to be boned in the bum though. Illusion of choice. Tried the skip cheat but it didn't work. Would be nice if you tell Scarlett you're not into anal and it just skips it for you. Can't see any other way to progress either. Until that gets changed it's a dnf for me. Otherwise a great looking game!
Will there be a android version
CHINNES folks aren't able to view it TOO!!!! why！！！I WANNA SUPPORT IT!
Why wont it allow me to download on Mac OS X version 12?
This is a great time! Can't wait for more updates! I know it's supposed to be raunchy and all, but I honestly got a lot more invested in all the different characters and story. Take your time, we love your work!
I really would love to see more between Rascal and Mabel, I would like for them to be together, I guess I ship them hard now, it would be cute :D
I have ploblem is 15-16 dates. I have a bug, scene is stun and does not continue. Restarting the game doesn't show up anymore.
This is a work of art!
Nauthy art, but good ;)
how do i get the woo
It's kinda funny that there's a little rat whit my name in the game, i really like her actually! It kinda fells like it is my persona in the game XD
My name is Mabelle, but i always stick with "Mabel" as a nickname.
Congrats on the game! It's really good, i'm excited to see the final product ;)
I think I found a way for you to add a apk without making controls for now just make it so you can play it on mobile with a xbox controller
Well ill be, Can't wait to give act 2 a try. This game has been phenomenal so far.
how do i unlock the last story?
For some reason, when I start the game the screen is grey. It works fine when I play on the website though. I'm on Windows 11.
Damn this was amazing, getting the last story for the gallery is going to be impossible if anyone can beat Dustins "novice" challenge than good shit to you
i cant wait for more and for full thing but why 2024 so long oof :(
will they're be a android version eventuality or at least be playable on an android ?
How To i type? i want to skip the plant
just type the letters, theres no place to type it, you just type it
when is act 3 coming out or planned to? that is if hes making act 3
Finally a new update, even tho its just an announcement, this gave me hope that act 3 will come
