Whilst the oncoming winter might carry the usual connotation of snuggly blankets, frothy coffees and darker mornings for us habitual humans, but when you’re a fox, frostier mornings can be decidedly tougher (via. Indie Game Mag).
In UltraCoolHand’s Foxfolk, players are plunged into the guise of pixellated little fox, and left to forage for birds, rabbits and squirrels to support their vulpine family. Players must stealthily sneak up on unsuspecting prey, and carry their captured morsels back to their subterranean den to fill the family crockpot. As only on prey can be carried at once, however, a certain amount of management is required to ensure their foxy family is kept happy. In addition to stalking your dinner, you’re also responsible for collecting logs and sticks to stoke the fire and keep your kin warm; with each type burning for varying lengths of time.
Foxfolk is available on itch.io for PC Windows. Usually priced at $3.00 (o £2.08), the game is currently discounted at $1.50 (or £1.04). For more information, you can follow UltraCoolHand on Twitter.
