Tunic is a gorgeous Zelda-style adventure starring a fox

You may have known it as Secret Legend

Samit Sarkar (he/him) is Polygon’s deputy managing editor. He has more than 15 years of experience covering video games, movies, television, and technology.

One of the highlights of the PC Gaming Show at E3 2017 so far has been a trailer for an indie game called Tunic, which showed off an intrepid fox in a beautiful pixelated world that’s seen from an isometric perspective.

Tunic is being developed by Andrew Shouldice, a one-man team based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. He is working with Finji, which has also published indie games such as Infinite Fall’s Night in the Woods. Shouldice originally introduced the game as Secret Legend in early 2015.

Here’s a brief description from Tunic’s Steam page:

Tunic is an action adventure about a tiny fox in a big world. Explore the wilderness, discover spooky ruins, and fight terrible creatures from long ago.

Tunic is scheduled to launch in 2018 on Mac, Windows and “consoles” — Shouldice said on Twitter earlier this month that there have been “no official decisions” on which console the game will be released on.
