Free arcade shooter inspired by retro top down shooters, with deer and woodland creatures as the undeserving target, base game was developed in 7 hours to prove how fast small game development can be with the LÖVE engine and then expanded a little to add mutations. Developed by Obscure Worlds as a prototype and concept game. Like other Obscure Worlds concepts will remain free forever!

Welcome to DeerHunter!


Deerhunter was developed to prove how fast it is possible to create rapid prototypes on the LÖVE engine.

What the current build looks like.

Anyone who has been watching my work for a long time will notice this is the return of the Ran character in a game, infact this game uses alot of the same animation code from that old game (a couple of aged and out of date news posts about this game are available on the obscure worlds page).

Ran
Old game featuring same character.

The current version is available here.

Future updates will include:
A new enemy type,
More sounds and possibly a soundtrack made in AudioTree,

Working highscore tables.

Later levels colour shift.

If anyone would like cheap tutoring in lua development or programming with LÖVE2d, or would like to use the code from this game in their own please get in contact with me through indiedb.
I can also put people in touch with a great pixel and digital artist for art help/tutoring if they contact me.

Peaceful moments like this are rare.

As always have a great day and thanks for taking interest in my work.
