About

The Deer is an indie history education game developed by Fabio Ferrara and Giulia Airoldi.

Story

The game follows a deer living in the Pleistocene epoch that goes through the world's woods and gathers provisions to survive the winter.

Gameplay

The Deer is a purely educational experience designed mainly for children. The players control a deer that goes through the woods. No enemies are present in the game at all. All the game's assets are hand-drawn as well as hand-animated.

As the players go through the woods of the Ice Age, floating tooltips will appear on the screen, telling them about different aspects of life and nature during that historical period. At some points of gameplay, the players will encounter puzzles, which help the players memorize various facts about the Ice Age. The players will also witness several time periods as they progress through the game, starting with Spring that is followed by Summer and Autumn, and Winter, which finishes the game.

There are no bad ending present in the game, as the players will get the provisions necessary for the deer in any way. There is a little degree of interactivity present in the game, as the only thing the players can do is to move the deer, solve puzzles, and admire the game's drawn environments.

There are no T-Rexes in the game, as they have already gone extinct several millions of years before the events of The Deer.

The Deer reviews and comments

Translated by

Far too short The Deer Is actually designed for Children. But even an Eight-year-old probably couldn't gain much from this Game. Gameplay In The Deer we are, attention, a Deer. We run first a little to the left and then To the Right to learn a little about the Epoch. There are Texts everywhere that are sometimes difficult to read, as the Writing disappears into the Background. In Addition, there are 3 small Games where you won't be rewarded if you solve them. Children In particular need some Confirmation. In addition, it took me exactly 5 Minutes for the whole Game without a joke and I really saw 100% of the Game. Story Well, we're a Deer in the Ice Age. You can get more out of 5 MInuten. Graphic/Sound I actually liked the Graphic Style right away, as it seems like it wants to teach the Game something comfortably. Praise is therefore Praised For the Graphics and Sound. Verdict So, I received the Game in a Bundle, some here seemingly free. The Game lasts a maximum of 5 Minutes (the Rest is Card farms), has quite nice Graphics and is supposed to teach something. But even free, the Download would be almost too much Trouble, as it can take almost longer than you actually play:-D I have also played a few other Titles of Chubby Pixels and have to say that they always have very good Ideas, but in Practice usually do not expand them far enough. Too bad, because The Deer Could well have had some Success With more Mini-tracks and more Languages. So, I can not recommend the Game for Purchase though. Did the Review help you? Then follow me in my Steam Group, where I write my Reviews as a Curator.

"The Deer" is a ... No, excuse me ... It should be an educational Experience for Children. We are a Deer 700,000 Years ago and lapping through nen Forest and ... Under Water in a lake ... As a Deer ... Educational. Oh yeah, we've got a Santa Hat On ... "The Deer" lasts five Minutes. And that's generously calculated. On youtube there is a Lets Play That lasts 2:54-just under 3 minutes! (Not Hours)-and that wasn't even straight through. There was plenty of Time to read all the Lyrics. Speaking of the Lyrics. The few existing seem like loveless copied from the Net, are pure Facts and offer no Gain Of Knowledge, because they come completely unrelated. The gameplay possibilities are numerous. Not only can we walk right with our Wild Animal, no. We can also, amazingly, run to the left. And this in an inconceivable Breadth of ... Three Screens. When we click on certain Places, plop Texts and there are even three Puzzles ... The three Puzzles: A Memory with exactly six Pairs, a Screen in which we have to pick five Things a Deer can eat and a Screen where we have to pick the right Bones ... That's it. The Graphics are drawn quite nicely, the Sound doesn't get annoying just because the Game only lasts a few Minutes. "The Deer" is an educational Cheekiness, a blank, a non-game, a zero number from which to save Children-even if you like them even to some extent. Rating: 2/10 Atmosphere 0/10 Story 5/10 Graphic 2/10 Sound Cluds 10 Game Mechanics 2,10 Balancing Economics 10 Game Pass Conclusion: Oh my deer! (sic!) I bet reading this Review takes longer than the Game. And also brings more Insight. +% Overall
