Game description generated withAI

The First Tree is a visually stunning and emotionally-charged third-person exploration game that delves into two distinct narratives, one about a fox desperately searching for her lost family and the other about a son seeking to reconnect with his father in Alaska. Guiding the fox through a bittersweet and mesmerizing journey, players uncover items and stories about the son's life as the two tales intertwine, culminating in a profound appreciation for life and death. Featuring an evocative soundtrack comprising of renowned composers such as Message to Bears, Lowercase Noises, and Josh Kramer, The First Tree is not your average "fox simulator," but a deeply moving and intimate story crafted by one individual. Lightweight puzzle-solving and platforming elements enhance the gameplay, while the absence of any adversaries establishes the game's contemplative mood. With a running time of approximately two hours, The First Tree boasts a satisfying conclusion that will leave a lasting impact.
