    Fox Hunt is a clever puzzle game where your goal is to find the Fox, but it isn't a simple task. Find the note cards and explore the minimalistic surroundings as secrets unveil themselves in grayscale and color.

    Conclusion:
    Fox Hunt ran perfectly as the visuals are mostly low poly without textures. DXVK allows us to run games made with Direct X 10/11 so I was able to launch this Unity Engine game and play with great frame rates, controls and save/load functionality. My GeForce GTX 1060 ran it without problems in 1920x1080 resolution.

    Gameplay Video:
    coming soon...
