It is a chilly and grey October day; perfect weather for an afternoon hunt. You exit your truck and head down the trail towards a deer blind you had set up a few weeks earlier while scouting the forest. A thick fog hangs in the air, making visibility difficult. As the leaves crunch underneath your feet, you decide that you must hurry North to the blind, as you only have a few hours until dark.
But when the darkness consumes the forest, you find yourself tracking an elusive buck through a maze of deer trails. Deep within the trail, a horrifying revelation awaits you.
The Deer Trail is a classic parser-style text adventure. It was created in two weeks for the 2021 Ectocomp game jam by Justin Squires (@darkforestmedia).
