Crescent Moon Games has announced that its 3D pixel adventure game The Deer God is now available on Nintendo Switch.
The Deer God takes players on a journey of spiritual reincarnation where the hunter becomes the hunted. Set in a colorful 3D pixel art world, players explore vast landscapes, tackle challenging puzzles to unlock skills and abilities, while avoiding hunters and other dangerous enemies in the quest for survival.
While the life of a deer is fraught with peril, death is not the end. Upon each sunrise, the deer becomes older and stronger, eventually growing into an impressive buck. If the deer is able to find a mate, his offspring will act as extra lives, continuing the hunter’s cycle of rebirth.
Player behavior determines whether they will align with good or evil karma. Sparing non-predatory wildlife instead of trying to be on top of the food chain grants abilities for choosing the road less taken. On the other hand, killing everything in sight grants destructive powers, but leads further away from the lesson the magical force behind the hunter’s karmic journey is hoping to impart.
The Deer God is available on the Nintendo eShop for $7.99 / €7.99.
