Rick the Fox, armed with a magical crossbow, must master its powerful ability to change between two seasons within each level. Create new platforms out of falling leaves in autumn, freeze surroundings in winter, and use other powers at his disposal.  Only by mastering the seasons will Rick be able to outfox his enemies, explore the mystic forest, solve brain-teasing puzzles, claim victory against colossal bosses, and bring the mystery of the fifth season to light.

Inspired by timeless classics such as the Castlevania and Zelda series, FOX n FORESTS will be both accessible and challenging. The game combines modern game design and retro charm accentuated with glorious 16-Bit graphics and a chiptune soundtrack.
