It is September 1st and that means it is new free game day on Xbox Live.
Today’s offering is an indie game called The Deer God.
Here is a quick look at the game play.
I have to say as much as I absolutely hate bitching about things that are free, I was completely underwhelmed by this game. I dug the 3D pixel art and that was about it. They set up an interesting mechanic where when you die you come back as whatever you last killed. I died twice, the first time coming back as a porcupine that couldn’t jump in an area requiring it. The next time I died I came back as a snake and this happened.
And I promptly exited the game and deleted it from my hard drive.
In short I can’t even recommend the game, it didn’t hook me and while the resurrection angle was novel it actually ended up being one of the more problematic things for me.
