The Deer God blends an awful lot of genres. It's a platformer, roguelike, survival game, and RPG rolled into one.

It's also breathtakingly beautiful, with pixel art visuals reminiscent of Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery or this year's Alto's Adventure.

What's it about? Calm down, I'm getting to that. You play as The Deer God itself and must travel across the gorgeous pixel art world jumping on and over things and levelling up your antlers.

That's right, your antlers are your primary weapon and can shoot fireballs out of them.

If you don't want to be a Deer God you can reincarnate as another animal entirely, and there are loads of them to interact with over the course of your adventure.

With a ton of quests to complete, puzzles to solve, items to find and use, and an intriguing dark storyline to follow, The Deer God is almost as full of content as it is compelling.

Hurry up and pitch a tent at the App Store [download] so you can be one of the first to play this gem at midnight tonight.
