  • Interesting game Nov 25, 2020

    I haven’t gotten all the way through yet so I have yet to see the entire story but I’ll comment anyways. The controls on the fox and camera are lackluster sadly. There’s no turning animation and the camera’s axis seems to be some kind of orbit rather than a center point. I’d suggest changing this to make the game more engaging. The first ultimate fox simulator by Gluten Free Games and this game uses the same fox model so his game would be a good example to go off with what I’ve suggested. I think those minor tweaks would make the gameplay feel smoother. The story so far is quite enjoyable, but the voice acting feels a little cheesy. It can be hard to write and narrate a story without visuals but I think it would have been possible to make it slightly more down to earth. Still I’ve enjoyed this game so far and look forward to finishing.

    I played the game on steam and android port is excellent. One of the most beautiful and fun adventure games I've played ina while and I'm so glad that I now have the ability to pick up and play it anywhere anytime. If you have been looking for a new adventure game to play on android than this is it. I can't recommend it more. Truly a 10/10!

  • Amazing for the team size, but frustrating gameplay and disappointing narrative Dec 1, 2020

    By EAOK
    While this is a very creative game and highly impressive given the tiny design team, I did not enjoy it. Gameplay quickly became frustrating and unfulfilling - I just wanted to get to the end. Moreover, while the concept was clever, I felt it was poorly executed. It felt immature and a bit, well, cliche. Death and loss are complex subjects worthy of exploitation, but this was just one negative anecdote after another interspersed with frustrating gameplay. It felt like an exercise in angst. Having lost more than my share of loved ones throughout my life, this reminded me most of my thought process and emotions at loosing a parent when 13 - not something I would wish to subject anyone else to for hours! That said, I want to commend the team for their work, especially given the small team size. It is a brilliant idea, and executed quite well given the resources available.

    Play this if you want a nice relaxing game with a thoughtful narrative and calming ambience. The mechanics are pretty simple but it's a nice break—honestly perfect for winding down

    The story is engaging and frankly beautiful! The only thing I had an issue with was I got a tiny bit lost on some occasions, but I understand that was intentional so I would wander around and find where I need to go. I love how you did this! It adds character to an already jaw dropping story. The controls were a little rough but I figured it out. I also absolutely love that in the mode thingy you have little notes and stories about your adventure beginning development! This was extremely inspirational to me as I am a teen working towards game development with my family. I loved your game and even though this is one of the shortest reviews I’ve wrote, that’s because I have no more to say about this game. My simple review: simply beautiful and inspiring!

  • Beautiful “Meh” Nov 24, 2020

    It’s a really beautiful style game I get what they are trying to tell in the story... it’s just not enough I keep getting lost and not in the fun way where I’m rewarded if I do it’s more frustrating and the mechanics are a bit buggy, Ik the guy love his work ethic n his personal story and glad he made it big, but this game really is missing some key story telling & game function If every time the fox found a story point and it when to an animated or animatic visual of what he’s trying to story tell.... now then maybe I could forgive everything else but just to listen to an audio book and get lost with a fox that glitches on rocks n I have to constantly hold down the run icon...(which only has 2 speeds crawl or walk...) gets boring at times cuz I’m just watching a fox run around...

  • Beautiful and Engaging Nov 24, 2020

    By LeoLover Katy
    I can only describe this game with one word: beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. Everything about it, the scenery and backgrounds were stunning, the animation looked natural and flowed so well, and the music and sound effects were beautiful and calming. I didn’t mind the time it took me in some areas that I got lost in, because the scenery and sounds made it easy to not get bored or agitated. In all honesty this is one of the best mobile games I’ve ever played. Once I downloaded it I sat in my room and didn’t leave for hours until I’d finished. Once I was done I felt so refreshed an tranquil, this game is so calming, but also has an engaging storyline. Would strongly recommend.

    I wish it had missions like to hunt food and I wish there was like a town you get to interact with or something like that
