TOKYO — Nov. 23, 2021 — DEEER Simulator: Your Average Everyday Deer Game, the sandbox action game starring a disruptive criminal deer developed by Gibier Games and published by PLAYISM, breaks free from Steam Early Access and wreaks havoc today on Xbox One at 3:00 PM PST, before riding into town on a giant zebra on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 on Thursday, Nov. 25 at 12:00 AM PDT.

As a human reborn as a deer, frolic on the peaceful continent of Orchestralia, an idyllic land full of humans and animals. Bestow gifts to the humans there in the form of antlers, become a slice of bread from I Am Bread, and live in peaceful harmony.
Or don’t do that, and wreak utter havoc painting the town red. Pick up pistols and laser rifles, and sling the deer’s elongated neck to grapple to objects and fling it across the map. Hitch a ride on cars, or get a bit more wild and take horses and fish for a spin. The world won’t be able to handle the Deerstruction.
Havoc increases the Deersaster meter, summoning the police. The force consists of polar bears, sheep, and rabbits, but they’re heavily armed and it’s deer season. Commit too much crime and they’ll summon giant police robots composed of multiple conjoined animals to hunt down John Doe. Take advantage of the deer’s ability to sprint on its hind legs to evade the brutal law in town, and find the weaponry to defeat them!
The 1.0 version and console debut includes an expanded story asking a bold question: what is the meaning of deer life? Ponder the existential while facing off against an all-new final boss. Play a game of Cowthello, the classic board game Othello/Reversi with cows, against either a giant bovine or against a friend (also possibly a cow) online exclusively to the Nintendo Switch version. Spend a few bucks for the new DLC and outfit the buck with four new skins, four attack items including a Mini Koala, and two new weapons.
“We can’t wait to see the mayhem the console community will make as they finally get to explore the world of DEEEER Simulator,” said “Naspapa”, Founder, Gibier Games. “Creativity is the only limit to how they destroy this poor city and terrorise its inhabitants.”
DEEEER Simulator releases on Steam for Windows PC and Xbox One at 3:00 PM PST on Tuesday, November 23, and on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 at 12:00 AM PST on Thursday, November 25 for $19.99. It supports English, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, French, Italian, German, Spanish (Spain), Japanese, Korean, and Simplified Chinese languages.
