On the hunt for The Deer God

Up here near the Wisconsin border the 10-day muzzleloading deer hunt is on and aficionados of the arcane art of the black powder rifle are up to their bib flaps in antlers. Lucky for them that The Deer God was released on Steam's Early Access sometime after they left for the lodge, or else they might be more concerned about the karmic implications of taking down a majestic, pagan ruler by accident.

The Deer God broke from cover as a remarkably successful Kickstarter this summer, only to amble onto the scene yesterday on the Steam marketplace. The side-scrolling puzzle game takes elements of an endless runner and an RPG and mixes them into something very special. Griffin McElroy joins Charlie Hall on the hunt.
