For a long time, our monstrous home was occupied by invading humans. Now, finally, weâ€™ve driven them off, and weâ€™re left with this: a year of relative peace. One quiet year, with which to dismantle their settlements and reclaim our lands. Come Winter, a band of heroes will arrive and we might not survive the encounter. This is when the game will end. But we donâ€™t know about that yet. What we know is that right now, in this moment, we monsters have an opportunity for healing and self-discovery in our deep forest, away from human eyes.
The Deep Forest is a map game of post-colonial weird fantasy. Itâ€™s a re-imagining of The Quiet Year, one that centres upon monstrosity and decolonization.
