The Forest Quartet

The Forest Quartet is a 3D narrative puzzler about a gone, but not forgotten, lead singer. Play her spirit and travel through 3 acts unique to the members of her band for a final farewell concert. Face their emotions, solve puzzles and fight the corruption plaguing their souls.


Something strange has taken over the once green and lush nature that Kirk would draw his inspiration from. The fungus slowly creeps and turns growth into decay. Use the power of your voice to restore the forest.
The forest has become an abyss of darkness.
Creatures have awoken from the depths of the underground, swarming JB's house.
Find the light that once existed to reignite JB's musical spark.
A volcano has erupted, spitting lava out into the nearby forest causing fires and destruction. Reestablish a system of water in the deep underground and reconnect lost pipes to stop the volcanic eruption.


Sing to interact with objects, create light with your fingertips. Glide, float, and transform into butterflies to explore the band members' psyches.
Environments and objects add unique layers to the soundtrack. Whether it be crackling forest fires or the cold winds from the deep caverns.
Live through heartbreak and loss. Recover from grief and restore the band’s musical spark.
No written descriptions or instructions, progressively gain powers for your travels.
Note from the developer:
The Forest Quartet is a personal and family made project. The original jazz score is composed by Mads' father, Nina is voiced by his sister, the soundtrack is performed by select musicians from The Danish Radio Big Band based in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Three musicians pick up the emotional and practical pieces after their singer dies in this comforting and warm game of fiendish headscratchers with a phenomenal soundtrack

65 / 100
The Forest Quartet is a nicely atmospheric puzzle game that is over a bit too quickly and doesn't live up to its musical inclinations.
by Adrian Burrows
8 / 10
The Forest Quartet is a gorgeously emotive game, one that explores the complex emotion of grief with empathy, nuance, and understanding. This jazz-inspired puzzle game is an experience to be relished, one that will live long in the memory.
