Game Name: Knitted Deer | Publisher: The Mandragora Team | Format: iPhone | Genre: Endless running, Platform
Christmas may have faded to a memory, but that shouldn't stop you from appreciating the kitschy warmth and fun of a holiday sweater.
Actually, it should - but the developers of the newly released Knitted Deer hope that you'll give their sweater-based endless runner a second look.
You read that previous sentence correctly, by the way: Knitted Deer is an endless runner set entirely on a sweater.
We first heard about Knitted Deer a month ago when a demo video made its way online. Now, just a few weeks after that demo footage, a completed version of the game is available in the App Store. Knit 1, Purl 2 Knitted Deer looks like a fairly basic endless runner with a few notable twists: first, there's the unique, sweater-based art style. Secondly, there's the question of the afterlife.
When your deer dashes into the hereafter, it'll either go to heaven or hell. You begin your endless run on earth, fittingly, and collect coins to purchase power-ups like new weapons and the like.
Once you die, however, you’ll go to either heaven or hell based on the decisions you made in the game.
If you're interested in checking out this unconventional endless runner, Knitted Deer is over on the App Store for 99c / 69p.
