The Faces of the Forest

Share Collapse

Author Comments

When your little town in the Argentinian Patagonia gets overtaken by the new government’s military, you’ll have to search the depths of the forest to find the aid of old and mystical forces of nature. Play as Ana, a brave young girl on her way to take back her town side by side with her neighbors.

Made in three weeks (we still don’t know how) for Latinx in Gaming’s Hispanic Heritage Month Jam 2020. We won Best Gameplay there.

Controls: WASD / Arrow keys to move, mouse for everything else. F for full-screen.

(Also Ctrl+J for infinite jumps and Ctrl+I for invincibility, but only if you need it. The full game should be playable without those.)

papa johns is a cult

Absolutely great game! I would like it if you offered a map or hints in game. I did have to look up a walkthrough to find one of the people, but it is good gameplay and art.

I didn't know you could actually make quality games using Construct. All others (that I have seen) are crap. This one is really cool. I did, however, find myself covering my tracks a lot wondering "what next" rather than being confronted by one clear challenge at a time; I would rather a clear but difficult objective to not knowing where to go next or what to do. So far, I have two masks. I hate resorting to walkthroughs. Excellent graphics and unique concept with the mask abilities and slow-mo interface where you draw the mask. 9/10.

good game

Good comment.

Pretty good game it took me awhile to find the last person. Pity this one didn't have some badges.
