Revealed today on PlayStation’s blog, Blow­fish Stu­dios announced its pix­el art game, The Deer God, will  soon be avail­able for PlaySta­tion users. 

 If you have nev­er heard of this game, it is pix­el art but set in a 3D world. Appar­ent­ly, it also has an “amaz­ing sound­track.” It is a plat­former where you cross var­i­ous land­scapes doing sto­ry relat­ed quests and bat­tle huge ani­mal boss­es. There are also a vari­ety of pow­ers for your “mag­i­cal antlers” (that’s hilar­i­ous) to use on your ene­mies.

Platformer "The Deer God" Coming to PS4/PS Vita in April

Ben Lee from Blow­fish Stu­dios had an inspir­ing mes­sage regard­ing The Deer God:

The game is very much inspired by things that we loved grow­ing up (not just video games). Being out­side in the woods, build­ing forts, see­ing deer stand­ing motion­less in the for­est and chas­ing after them. Build­ing bows and arrows, pre­tend­ing to hunt. We miss those days, but the feel­ing is here, inside of this game. 

The Deer God was released for Xbox One and PC back in 2015, but accord­ing to Lee this ver­sion is the most refined of them all, with “extra pol­ish­es and fix­es since the orig­i­nal launch.” Lee also states he believes this game is a much bet­ter fit for the PS Vita. Would make sense, con­sid­er­ing it is a sidescroller plat­former. 

The Deer God will be arriv­ing on April 25th for the PS4 and the PS Vita.
