The Deer God, the lush 3D pixel art adventure from Blowfish Studios and Crescent Moon Games releases today on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita as a Cross-Buy title for $9.99 USD / €9.99 / $14.95 AUD with an additional 30 percent discount during its launch week.
The Deer God tells the story of a hunter who learns what it means to become the hunted. After setting out to bring home a large trophy, the protagonist meets an untimely end and comes face-to-face with the Deer God, who in an act of karmic retribution reincarnates him as a fawn.
Journeying through stunning, procedurally-generated pixel art landscapes, players rely on their platforming skills and wits to protect the young deer from ever-present dangers while solving puzzles to unlock new skills and abilities that will aid the pursuit of continued survival. Deer can also go down a dark path and acquire destructive powers to unleash upon hunters and other creatures of the forest, but this could result in the eventual reincarnation as a life form lower than a deer.
Inspired by classic titles, including Metroid, The Legend of Zelda and Ecco the Dolphin, The Deer God also draws from childhood experiences enjoying the peaceful experience of immersion in the great outdoors.
The game comes with 30 Trophies and a Platinum.
