We have a guest blog post from ‘Cade Peterson’ on their new game Kitsune Tails. See below.
Made from a collaboration between the two queer indie darling game studios, MidBoss and Kitsune Games that made 2064: Read Only Memories and Super Bernie World respectively, comes the exciting Kitsune Tails, a platformer styled after beloved classics steeped in Japanese mythology and diverse relationships, coming to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, as well as Windows and Linux via Steam and itch.io.
Play as a young female kitsune, one of Inari’s fox-eared and bushy-tailed messengers, and embark on a hero’s journey that begins while delivering your first message. Experience a romantic encounter with a kindly sorceress who comes to your aid in a time of need. Explore the complicated relationship with your former mentor turned antagonist and uncover her reasons for sealing your love interest inside an elemental prison. Unlock powers that manifest as cute outfits to help you run, jump, and dash across five elemental worlds to save your love interest.
