It’s a Hard Fox Life…

Barcelona, Spain / Giebelstadt, Germany, September 24th 2019: Are you aware, that according to a recent study, published by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, about 27% – or in numbers: more than 28.000 – of animal species on our planet Earth are threatened with irreversible extinction?

Imagine now, mankind, in its neverending effort to ravage the planet, has brought even the beautiful and cunning foxes – one of the most adaptable creatures of the animal kingdom – close to extinction. It will be your mission to safely guide a fox mother, the last of her kind, and her three vulnerable cubs through the dystopian future of an exploited Earth, where there is barely enough room or food for them to survive. On her journey to find the last safe haven, the vixen has to be sly to avoid hunters, find and gather food for her family, and overcome all dangers that lie ahead.
While leading the skulk to safety, the pups will grow (level up), learn new helpful skills and get stronger. As your challenges increase, so will the stakes of your decisions of how to protect your younglings from looming perma-death. Can you give this Endling a last glimmer of hope?
