Kevin Costner's Tatanka Hunting Simulator 2013 gives Costner the role of a lifetime

New, 3 comments

Kevin Costner's Tatanka Hunting Simulator 2013 wants you to help actor Kevin Costner consume the hearts of every bison across the mighty plains of America as part of a cel-shaded take on the Oscar-winning film Dances with Wolves.

The game is designed by independent developer Acid Wizard Studio as an entry in the recently ended Global Game Jam. Developed for Windows, the designers describe the title as a heart-consuming romp featuring flying squirrel costumes.

"If you've seen 'Dances with wolves,' you know that eating fresh bison (tatanka in Sioux) hearts makes Kevin a happy Costner! Jump on a tatanka and stay on it long enough to eat it's heart, filling up the hunger meter. Watch out and don't fall to the ground or hit the horizontal edges of the screen! Each time you fail a run, you get coins for total distance traveled and eaten hearts, which you can spend on upgrades for your character.... like a flying squirrel costume. How awesome is that?!"

Check out the trailer above for a look, while the game itself can be downloaded and played here.
