An Atmospheric Adventure from the Art and Creative Directors of Never Alone

“Ukrainian mythology has so much to teach us, but for people outside of Eastern Europe it has remained largely inaccessible. Having grown up surrounded by these magical tales it is so exciting now to be able to share this part of my culture with gamers everywhere.”

Dima Veryovka

Creative Director, Colabee Studios

In a forest filled with supernatural creatures, the player discovers a magic flute and gains the ability to relive key moments in their life.




The Forest Song is a First-Person Adventure that explores the connections and conflict between humans, nature and supernatural world

The Forest Song is a videogame adaptation of Lisova Pisnya (Лісова Пісня), a classic Ukrainian drama in which players assume the role of a peasant who has an extraordinary encounter with an elusive and powerful Forest Spirit. Their connection opens the player to a spirit world and sparks a dramatic clash between the supernatural inhabitants of the forest and the world of humans.

The Forest Song features a living systemic game world in which its human and supernatural inhabitants follow their own goals and agenda. A unique time-loop mechanic challenges players to observe and anticipate events. A wide array of interconnected puzzles enable players to manipulate the game world.

We’ve assembled a world class development team that includes game developers based in Seattle and Kyiv as well as an array of Ukrainian culture and folklore experts led by esteemed faculty of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv.

We’re building The Forest Song for the latest gaming consoles with specialized VR content where players will experience an unprecedented sense of immersion and presence. The Forest Song will offer players the unique opportunity to explore a fantastic new world inspired by old-world traditions.
