“The Deer God delivers an exciting and moving experience within a gorgeous world with Metroidvania-like gameplay,” said Ben Lee, CEO, Blowfish Studios “It is an honor to bring a game enjoyed by so many gamers to the PlayStation community.”
For those who are unfamiliar with the game, The Deer God is a 3D pixel art adventure centered around karma and reincarnation. You play as a hunter who is on the prowl for the biggest and most handsome buck in the forest, only the hunter soon becomes the hunted. He is then met by the apparition of the Deer God, who is having absolutely none of this hunters nonsense, and decides to reincarnate him as a young fawn. Now he must learn to live and survive in the wilderness as a creature he once lovingly hunted. A twist on this game is that you only have one life to live. but as you go through day and night cycles and mature into a young buck, you have the ability to mate with young doe and produce offspring, thus creating another life for you should you die later on. With stunning and vibrant pixel art styles, and engaging gameplay, this is one experience you don’t want to miss out on.
