DEEEER Simulator – PAX West 2019

DEEEER Simulator is similar to Goat Simulator, made by NASPAPA Games; the game is all about broken physics and how you can abuse those to destroy the world around you. Unfortunately, it’s too similar to the latter without the same detail and polish.

Easily the best part about the game is the ability to stretch your neck out to grab onto cars, buildings, light poles, and even planes. It’s somewhat of a Spider-Man experience that is certainly good for some fun and laughs. It’s a great way to get around and explore the world, but the world gives you little incentive to explore it. The entire world is bland, monochromatic, and simple. You feel very little reward for destroying things and wreaking havoc. It doesn’t help that there’s very little sound from what I saw in the demo besides things exploding. No birds chirping, no music, very little indeed.

The whole game seems to be about breaking things and then fighting off the different types of animal cops that appear and try to stop you. The combat isn’t satisfying enough to build this kind of wave-based game off of. You can destroy the environment and defeat enemies by rushing at them with an ability that has you stand up and sprint very fast or by driving vehicles into them. The controls for both are a bit inconsistent, making the act of playing the game very lame and annoying.

I had high hopes for this game going into it, but there just isn’t enough to do. It also makes you question why you would want to purchase this game instead of just picking up Goat Simulator. At best, DEEEER Simulator is a failed attempt at making a charming, wacky physics game that you play just for giggles, but hey, if that’s your kind of game, then be sure to check out the trailer below and their Steam page.
