''The Endless Forest'' is an {{MMORPG}} for [[UsefulNotes/MicrosoftWindows Windows]] where the player is a deer in a forest, without goals or the ability to chat. Unique pictograms above registered deer's heads help to identify each individual. Players communicate with each other through sounds and body language. And that's all there is to it. You start the game as a fawn and play as one for 30 days before you mature into a stag. The entire time you run around in an [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin endless forest]] as a deer, rubbing against trees, braying/mooing, and emoting to other players. You can also [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs cast "forest magic" on each other]], which changes pelts, masks, and antlers.

The creators (also known for ''VideoGame/ThePath'') get a lot of feedback for the through the official forums, though it only gets any major updates maybe once a year. The community is very dedicated to the game, even going so far as to create in-game legends such as the [[PunnyName Deermuda Triangle]], a triangle formation of three glitched (duplicated) rocks in which strange things are supposed to happen.

And did we mention that all the deer have [[NightmareFuel human faces]]?

* CuteButCacophonic: The fawns are cute, but their call is just as loud as the adult deer. Website/SomethingAwful once [[http://www.somethingawful.com/d/mmo-roulette/endlessforest.php used this to their advantage]] during a long-ago raid on the game. Thanks this, the creators made it so the call gets quieter the more you use it consecutively.
