Description: Deer Man is a short Interactive storytelling experience. In the winters of 2015, Jacob took a break from his busy and noisy life by visiting his parents in America. Sticking to his usual routine, he took his first morning run in the nearby woods. It was freezing and extremely quiet but Jacob wasn’t alone. You play as Jacob’s memory, where you will have an incredible encounter with Deer Man & the dark side of his love for the wildlife. So, are you ready for a run?

Review: I’m not going to lie to you, I am not sure what the developer was going for with Deer Man. On the one hand, it is a dreamy, slightly scary 360 experience and on the other, it is a short walking adventure. But both things are let down by bad narration and poor storyline and it is the lack of a decent story that really lets this experience down. If this was free I might have suggested you take a look yourself, but even for the small price it is I wouldn’t recommend it. Maybe I missed the point of it, or maybe there wasn’t a point to it in the first place. Either way I didn’t enjoy it, but at least it is short so I didn’t have to endure it for long.
