Tale of Tales: The Endless Forest, submitted by Shmafty. If you like the idea of massively multiplayer video games but hate being forced to actually "do things" and "talk to other people" and "have fun", this might be the perfect... thing for you. It claims to be more of an interactive piece of art than a game, and succeeds in being more of a creepy and boring waste of grant money than anything.
You are a stag, a male deer. So are the other players. You meet each other in an endless forest on the internet. The setting is idyllic, the atmosphere peaceful. You communicate with one another through sounds and body language.
The Endless Forest is a virtual place where you can play with your friends. There are no goals to achieve or rules to follow. You just steer your deer through the forest and see what happens.
And what happens is a whole lot of nothing, discounting dizziness and a headache from the game's overuse of bloom lighting. Did I mention that the deer have disturbing human faces? Because the deer have disturbing human faces.
