What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“There may be additional features added to the game which change its gameplay dynamic. In the early access version of Hoofobia the fundamental entertaining gameplay features are ready to play, such as sneaking around forests among a deer pack and stalking + attacking the human hunter. However, we have many more ideas for gameplay after we prove the concept of this core functionality. We're seeking real feedback on the fairness of early game modes in order to level the playing field for both teams in their asymmetrical combat.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will likely remain in early access for the first 6 months after release. During that time, updates and adjustments will be made in attempt to improve the gameplay experience and fix bugs.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Development goals for the full version of Hoofobia include character customization, player progression & ranking, greater depth of game mode objectives and an overall increase in game mode types.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is in Beta state-- features may be added which change the gameplay experience.
Please refer to the “About this game” section on our store page for all the details. This section includes all features that are currently included in the game.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We aim to always price the game as fairly as possible in relation to the current game market. The price may raise in accordance to what we think the games’ true worth is valued at. If we achieve our goal of adding more features, content, and an overall more well-rounded playing experience, the game price may gradually increase relative to the added value increase.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Feedback of any kind is greatly appreciated, whether in the form of Steam reviews or external reviews & commentary. We're looking for any feedback on what features should be added or retracted, what you like/dislike about Hoofobia and any bugs that may or may not arise. We will strive to be as receptive as possible to any constructive criticism.”

About This Game

In Hoofobia, the dominance hierarchy is flipped on its head. Stalk the human hunter, strategize with other deer friends, make coordinated assaults on the hunter to knock him over, and finally escape his proximity forcefield before being brutally shot in order to earn a point for the deer team. In order to stay on his feet, the hunter must be more keenly aware than an NFL Linebacker or a Brazilian Spider Monkey, keeping his head on a swivel and closely listening for sneaky deer.

Play multiple game modes with many more coming soon!

Imposter Hunt: Blend in among the deer herd, knock over the hunter, and make him go insane.

Stay Close: Stay Hidden within the hunters proximity to earn points for the deer team.

Hit and Run: Knock over the hunter and escape his proximity bubble to earn a point.

Join global matchmaking lobbies that include 4 players per match and multiple game modes.
