In Secret of the Forest, you are a lonesome hermit trying to live peacefully in your cabin in the woods.

In order to survive, you must Hunt and Gather from the woods for food.

Beware: you are not alone. Every action you take is being watched. The spirits might not like what they see.

How to Play

To navigate, click the menu buttons detailing your actions. Actions you take will increase your Exhaustion.

Hunt and Gather to find food to Eat and refill your Hunger.

Place Offerings, Burn Offerings, Place Totems, and perform other actions to try and appease the spirits.

Spirits inhabit different areas, and are affected by things that you do where they live.

The more spirits you see, the angrier they are. If you see them at your Cabin, you're in trouble.

Survive as long as you can.
