    This has been out a little over a week now. Never played the PC version but so far having a great time with this. Really smart AI has me struggling to make it past day 3 solo. Fantastic atmosphere and can be pretty terrifying during the night! Probably the best survival game you can play on PS4 at the minute.

    Coincidentally I did have a look at that this very morning. Looked ok. I think I will wait for around the £8 mark. I have bought many good indys off psn when they have a sale on.
    I did go for The Vanishing of C, it was under £5 I think.

    The best indy I have ever bought from psn still belongs to EGttR. It is sublime.

    @neilka during the day itís pretty good. At night, itís about 3 foot! It gets dark, really ramps up the tension.

    @DUFFMAN5 I'm always happy to see you advocating EGttR - one of my favourite games this generation. Ethan Carter is good but doesn't quite reach the same heights.

    I'm interested in The Forest but was slightly put off by a recent blog post on the PS EU site. The developer's '8 top tips' for survival seemed to be mostly centred around killing everyone or everything in sight. Is it really that combat-heavy?

    @andy10 the longer you survive the harder it will get. Your not attacked constantly though. Your scouted, taunted into traps etc. There is a peaceful mode though if you prefer that.

    It seems like one of those games you should just jump in and see what happens. It's been on my radar for ages, and I'm much more relaxed about stuff like this rather than "Winning" everything nowadays. Especially with games like Don't Starve and Invisible, I find the surprises cooler anyway.
