The Deer God doesn’t hold your hand, or tell you what to do. It can be a struggle, but it’s all worth it when you’re shooting fire out your antlers.
Part of this is due to being an early access game on Steam. It’s unfinished, incomplete. But that’s where the intrigue lies. With no tutorials, or anything to give guidance, you have to gather how the game mechanics work on your own.
It’s this exploration of how the game works with the literal exploration of the in-game landscape which makes The Deer God so very interesting.
I hope as the game gets closer to coming out of early access, it doesn’t lose this sense of mystery, because that would be a real shame.
