Hey look, it’s Oh, Deer! This is a video game about drifting your station wagon along the Perfect Line to Grandma’s House. Is it a metaphor for the futility of human existence? Is it a militant vegan parable? Is it a crass advertisement for family automobiles? Let the mystery unfold before you.
This game is currently not available for purchase for Various Reasons, but we'll put it back up eventually. While you were able to buy it, this beta had one main mode with 5 miles of track, and a survival mode which was infinitely different and replayable! Wahoo! In the future, final game, the more deer you hit, the more dark and disturbing the graphics will get. The more you avoid, the lighter and fluffier it'll get! Weird! But right now, only the music does that.
Speaking of which! Did you know that Motohiro Kawashima made our soundtrack? If his name doesn’t ring a bell, have yourself a listen-see to this song. Turn it up and try not to void your bowels. That’s Streets of Rage 3! The best Streets of Rage that ever there was! Kawashima did the music for it, and Oh, Deer! is the first game he's been lead composer on since then! Crazy! You can buy the soundtrack right over here.
What the heck, why not listen to him performing a live mix of a bunch of the music? I think we can all agree you’ve earned it. But yeah! Oh, Deer! is a video game. Hit all the deer or avoid all the deer! I can't tell you how to live your life! Honk honk!!
