Explore an autumnal forest, forage for food, find a warm, dry den to make your own and prepare for winter.

Forager is a game by Nate Gallardo and Cat Burton.


An important note from Cat & Nate:

We're releasing Forager in a not-entirely polished state! Unfortunately, after over a year of part-time development, we reached a point where we realised we weren't able to devote the time to it that it required to become the project we initially dreamed of. So you'll notice some rough edges, some flickering geometry, some missing sounds and so forth. That said, it's entirely playable and the the core game loop is functional, so please do check it out!

Finally, we put a lot of work into Forager, so we're going with a pay-what-you-want approach. If you do enjoy the game as it is then we'd be very grateful for any payment you feel fair, but please note that due to its unfinished state we won't be supporting the game post-release. We'd encourage you to play the game before deciding to make any contributions :)


Xbox controllers are supported, but we recommend mouse and keyboard :)

I am currently downloading it right now, the art style reminds me of " We Happy Few " You should def check it out :D

This is a super beatiful game! I love the fact that you're playing as a squirrel ( i think)!

I wish you guys would keep on developing it!

I'm struggling a bit with the controls. The a/d keys don't do anything so I can't turn easily, the only way to do it is using the mouse as a guide, but I can't seem to find a way to adjust mouse sensitivity so small tweaks to my direction don't seem to register. Is there something I'm missing, since you recommend playing it using the mouse and the keyboard?

Otherwise, what I've played so far is great. I can't wait to continue exploring! This is the kind of game I'd like to see more of, it's fun and very relaxing. Great job.

This is a really nice and fun little game. The graphics are decent and pretty to look at. The sound design is nice, and the story and what you have to do is fun. I didn't know what to expect from this game but I was surprised by how just nice and calm everything was. You play as what looks or feels like a little squirrel and its your job to build the the little critter a home to hibernate the winter away. I love being able to run around and run up anything I want with a simple little objective of picking some simple home improvements. It sucks to see this game isn't being worked on anymore especially with all the educational purposes this game could have. All in all a fun little creative game. I did a video on my experience with the game if anyone is interested.

Thanks so much for the video man, we both really appreciate the time you gave it!

looks pretty good ! gotta try it !


Hello. I played your game and I enjoyed it a lot, it is a shame you will not continue it but I would still recommend you put this game up on the Gamejolt website, as a survival game of sorts I think it would do very well. 5/5.
