The developer also announced that as of today more than 1.5 million people have downloaded The Deer God across Xbox One, PC, and mobile devices.

Never heard of The Deer God? No problem, Blowfish provided the following overview of the game along with the announcement:

The Deer God  takes players on a journey of spiritual reincarnation where the hunter becomes the hunted. Set in a colorful 3D pixel art world, players explore vast landscapes, tackle challenging puzzles to unlock skills and abilities, while avoiding hunters and other dangerous enemies in the quest for survival.

The story follows a hunter as he attempts to take out the largest buck for bragging rights. His expedition takes a turn for the worst when he gets mauled to death and comes face to face with The Deer God. Reincarnated as a fawn, the hunter returns to his world and must stay alive as he traverses a procedurally generated world.

Players are granted one life and feed to replenish their health. As fawns progresses through the day and night cycles in the game, they mature, allowing them to mate with doe and have offspring. Each fawn that is born offers players another life, should they die.

Ben Lee CEO of Blowfish Studios added the following:

The Deer God delivers an exciting and moving experience within a gorgeous world with  Metroidvania-like gameplay. It is an honor to bring a game enjoyed by so many gamers to the PlayStation community.”

There is no currently no word on whether or not the game will support any type of cross-buy feature. Nor was a price point divulged. However, a new trailer was released, which you can check out below:
