The Deer God is an indie platformer originally funded through a Kickstarter campaign.

The game starts with the player being a hunter. As a deer hunter, he gets attacked by wolfs and dies. Mother nature wants the hunter to learn his lesson, and thus the deer hunter reincarnates as a deer himself. At this point the player can start controlling the character.

The game features a 2D platforming world in which the player encounters food sources, obstacles, enemies, and NPC's. Surviving for a long time lets the player grow to an elder deer. The game contains a lot of NPC's which are friendly to the player. These can nonetheless be killed, but it'll affect the in-game moral system, giving bad points for killing innocents and good points for enemies.

Enemies in the game include ex-fellow deer hunters and foxes. Several bosses are an alternation to the normally encountered enemies, including an eagle, snapping turtle, beaver, snake, and a toad. The world features big deer statues which can be used to upgrade the antlers of the deer.
