Forsaken is a 2D side-scrolling poetic experience emphasizing the themes of companionship and sacrifice. During a journey to save their village from a spreading corruption you are befriended by other creatures whose lives have also been altered. With your band of friends, you collect fireflies to light your way through the darkness which is threatening the land and to bring light back into the world. The mechanics of the game are deliberately very simple, immersing you in the experience of the world and its inhabitants.
