The indie-made 3D pixel art adventure, The Deer God, is now available as a digital download for PS4 and PS Vita from Blowfish Studios and Crescent Moon Games.
Previously released for Xbox One, PC, and mobile platforms, 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 titular Deer God, who in an act of karmic retribution reincarnates him as a fawn. As such, players traverse through procedurally-generated pixel art landscapes and need to rely on their platforming skills and wits to protect the young deer from ever-present dangers. There are also puzzles to solve that allow for new skills and abilities to be unlocked that will aid the pursuit of continued survival.
"As games have evolved as an art form we have seen them address everything from heroics on the battlefield to war crimes, but we have not seen many games that show an appreciation for the environment," said Ben Lee, CEO, Blowfish Studios. "Whether you have a love of nature or not, The Deer God will provide an experience that is as rich and rewarding as it is entertaining."
The Deer God is rated "T for Teen" by the ESRB.
