Red Forest, officially titled The Rake: Red Forest, is an upcoming indie FPS horror game and the revamped version of the 2016 original. Developed by SlenderDev, in association with BiscuitPlay, the game is scheduled to be released on November 25th, 2019 on Windows.


The Rake: Red Forest is packed with tons of new features to make it stand out against its predecessor as well as other horror games. Just some of these features include:

  • Large, open-world environment - full of trails, abandoned houses and vehicles, animals and more.
  • Immersive graphics that build up the game's creepy atmosphere.
  • Real sound effects recorded from the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone and the Red Forest.
  • Lots of interactivity between the player and their surroundings.


The Red Forest is one of the most unique spots in the Chernobyl area, with various mutations still taking place here. It is visited by tourists wishing to see something extraordinary.

Both plant and animal mutants can be seen here. However, this time, scientists have found a a new kind of creature that they have never seen before. Now, they are ready to pay millions to anyone who catches it - so they could study it.

People from different corners of the world start coming to this place, hoping to catch the creature and be rewarded with the bounty. There is even a local dealer here who is ready to sell weapons to everyone interested.

The Rake was last seen two years ago, but all the attempts to catch him failed since then, and the scientist who had made those attempts was found dead in his trailer among the woods.
