Deer Avenger 3...D Coming to Mac
10:38 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Several days ago Simon and Schuster Interactive made three screen shots available from their upcoming title Deer Avenger 3...D, yet another installment in their successful series of parody titles. However, the accompanying press release did not contain one element that we often see in S&S press releases, besides off-the-wall humor -- it did not mention a Mac OS version of this game.

We were of course alarmed at the prospect of Mac users missing out on such a title, so we contacted Peter Binazeski at S&S immediately. He put our fears to rest , thankfully, with the following response:

indeed a DA3 is coming for the Mac. The reason why I didn't
include it in the release is because it will come out after the PC release.
The gaming engine for the PC version is custom built by Hypnotix... and they
will be porting it over pronto once the PC version is done. I would expect
it to be finished about a month after the PC version ships.
Well, that's a relief. If you are unfamiliar with this series, Deer Avenger is a parody of those lousy 2D deer hunting simulations that were topping the charts several years back. Those hunting sims have now moved into the 3D realm, so Deer Avenger is following suit with more zany humor, madcap antics, and deer flatus -- now in 3D. Here's an excerpt from the press release:
Bambo, Deer Avenger's hero character, is trying to spend a little "quality time" with his amorous girlfriend when their interlude is interrupted by the frantic pleas of the forest animals. "Help us!" the animals cry. "The hunters are back!" Bambo easily dismisses their pathetic cries for help and turns back to Jane. Upset by the animals' cries, Jane explains to Bambo that she cannot "get in the mood" until the animals are safe. Angry and frustrated, Bambo sets out to find and eliminate the obstacles that are keeping him from his true love. He will make them pay_dearly.

Players hunt in four different hunting environments during the summer or winter seasons. Explore in rich 3D environments, complete with lakes, trees and other obstacles to hide behind, climb over or swim through. Players encounter over a dozen 3D characters with varying degrees of skill and intelligence, and have access to Bambo's arsenal of 10 weapons that are accumulated after each kill. Bambo's own extremely lethal particle farts can also locate, lure, scare or destroy the hunters.

Ah yes. One must not forget the particle farts. In any case, Deer Avenger 3...D is due this September for the PC, with the Mac version following in November or December -- just in time to make an excellent stocking stuffer.
