It appears my WordPress career has taken a bit of turn of late from “serious” reviewer to game flogger. Well its that time again because, after getting a tip from the awesome YouTube channel Indieformer I have been led to another game that I will tell you about, leaving it up to you whether you back the game or not because, you know, money doesn’t
grow on trees, no matter how many pennies we plant in the ground.
Fox ‘n’ Forests is a 16-bit game styled in vain of SNES era games such as:
“all time classics like Super Ghouls ’n Ghosts, Wonder Boy in Monster World and ActRaiser 2 as well as the Castlevania and Zelda series.”
You plays as Rick the Fox who is unwilling thrust into an epic quest to defeat an evil force that is creating animal-plant hybrids, as well as attempting to introduce a fifth season, to take over the land. Armed with a magical melee crossbow which allows him to shoot, slash, and change the seasons at will, Rick must journey to stop this force from destroying his woodland home.
To be honest the game looks brilliant with its brilliant graphic, musical score, gameplay mechanics, neat gimmick of season changing, impressive boss battles, and a ton of nostalgia. Seriously, just go look at their page, it is fantastic. But don’t just take my word for it (I mean that should be enough but whatever that’s fine) esteemed game critic Jim Sterling has also thrown his weight behind the game in his Greenlight Goodstuff video.
The game has over €50,000 donated to it but only has 10 days left to hit its €95,000 target. I know it’s a big ask but this game is definitely worth your time. Check Fox n Forests out, watch their videos, and if you can back this game!
UPDATE: As of the 11th August Fox n Forests hit its funding target!!! It will be released in September 2017. Congratulations Bonus Level Entertainment! I am really looking forward to seeing this game next year! Fox n Forests have a just over one day left before the project ends so if you want to get a copy of this game which will be cheaper than release then go and back it now! Now just to go mark next year’s calendar in September for a very foxy day!
