And the matter gets even worst when a local hunter wants to turn you into a hunt trophy.

Snow patch

During debugging, I disabled snowing effect in the game but then forgot to re-enable it in the final build.

Here is a patch that adds snowing effect and fixes a stability issue to the game. Simply replace the executable by the one from this patch.

A patch on launch day... sounds so professional !

I love the pun in this title, would consider giving a "Best Game Title" nomination.

To continue the bad pun route, may I suggest...

This game depicts violence towards animals and is not intended for players with a weak hart heart.


...this edit to your description? XD
Thanks guys for the appreciation.

The pun is intentional, not the typo.
Uh oh. It keeps crashing on me a few minutes into the game :(
I noticed it happened whenever I would step off one terrain-type onto another. Obviously I was crossing terrains for the first few minutes without issue, but I just noticed that common denominator each time.

Is there a way to shake the hunter, or does he just perpetually follow my tracks so I have to keep a distance? :P
Game development was done in Linux so the Linux build has been thoroughly tested. The windows build not so much... I've noticed the issue you report and I'm working on it.

The snow patch now solves the issue.

You can shake off the hunter by running away and break his line of sight to you or your tracks as often as possible. Then you must stay still behind a patch of pine trees. The snow slowly covers your tracks so you must hide sufficiently far away from the hunter to give your tracks the time to disappear under the snow.
Then the hunter will resume his patrol, going from hunting spot to hunting spot. He visits the 4 hunting spots in a random order each time and they are located such that he covers most of the map while hunting.
If you get wounded, your ability to sprint is severely reduced so you won't be able to give your tracks the time to disappear under the snow and shake off the hunter.
