You are wild and you are free. You are a beast of the wild woods. Roam the mystical forest and live out your life as a wild animal in their natural setting. Find the totem poles to transform into other animals. Hunt, graze, or forage in the undergrowth for food, drink from the lakes, you can even swim! Fight and kill, or make friends and forge families!“
Here are a couple screenshots from a game that I found called Lif.
You start out as a rabbit. You can either stay a rabbit, or move around to find the other animal totems; Deer, Fox, Wolf, and Bear.
Rabbits and Deer eat the grasses. Foxes, Wolves, and Bear eat meat from any animals killed, not the typical prey animals (rabbits and deer) only.
To start a family, you have to find the opposite gender of your animal, and ‘nuzzle’ them. While playing as a female, the only way to become pregnant is to have the male 'nuzzle’ you.
This game is both single-player and multi-player. You are almost always being chased by something while you’re in single-player. You can technically be killed by any animal, but they mostly leave you alone if you’re a bear or a wolf.
Multi-player seems to be more about the wolf and fox groups, and having babies. There are packs of each near choice areas; ample water from a stream or lake, that particular totem, and a starting point for prey animals.
This is a great game for my otherkin friends. Controls are super easy! (if you’re confused, don’t be afraid to ask me what button does what ^-^)
Angstiest? Gotcha. Even though Oliver loves going to the surface to learn about humans, he's also extremely afraid of it cause he already lost Allen (2p America in my mertalia au) to a fishing boat, as well as James (2p Canada) to a motorboat propeller. Though he loves humans, he's deathly afraid of them as well from previous events that happened to his family
That would work but he doesnt know an Allen or Matt. Ollie loves humans but he’s not scared of them. He’s cautious because he knows they can be dangerous. Its like swimming with sharks knowing one can kill you if youre not careful.))
i think part of the reason i’m constantly clinging to my obfuscated understandings of science is because it is a great comfort to me knowing that a caterpillar capsizes and turns to liquid before it becomes a butterfly. like, if coral reef can be immortal and aspen groves reach out to each other under the soil to form the one of the world’s largest living organisms, or if pretty flowers can kill me and if salmon can die while swimming upstream then yOU KNOW MAYBE I CAN DO SOMETHING WITH MY LIFE TOO
