So, everyone had heard about the amazingly powerful DEEEER Simulator: Your Average Everyday Deer Game (hereafter, just Deer Simulator, please GOD), but has everyone found out about Deer Simulator connects with the real world mystique behind the deer environment? That was where the developers were trying to go, and we have some really good reasons to believe they actually made it happen.

For starters, the power of Deer Simulator stems not from its ability to actually mimic the world of true deers. In fact, it eschews such nonsense. Over in the deer-world, people know what they want. And what they want is good old fashioned physics games where nothing makes any sense. Give me my deers in a realm where power meets the ground, full stop. In this vein, the developers at NASPAPA Games gave everyone a real run for their money.

In many ways, the mystique of Deer Simulator is the same kind of juice that captivated all of us in Untitled Goose Games. That is, it’s the same kind of juice if that juice was itself on juice (that is, if it was on steroids, ya dig?). But never fear, for this kind of power comes with some help.\

First, your deer has the power to destroy things. It can also do it well. Just like in Goat Simulator, you better watch your back or you might wind up in a whole lot of hurt if you know what I mean.

And even if you do not, well, I guess that just means you are about to find out. Aren’t you? Anyway, if you check out the last aspect of Deer Simulator that we should all be aware of, then you will find out that the Deer isn’t actually a deer at all. It’s a computer simulation.

In one of my favorite parts of the game, the deer even moves like a train as it builds up steam and crashes into things. This time, however, Bruce Willis is not on the train. This is not going to be Unbreakable 2. (Besides, we already had Unbreakable 2, it was called Split.)

Now, for those of you who were not aware, DEEEER Simulator: Your Average Everyday Deer Game was just released on Steam yesterday. That means you can go out and give it a purchase if you happen to be a major big-time video game with an impulsive side that demands you live your life as an out-of-control, all-powerful DEER Force. I wish you nothing but luck, my young cosmonauts.
