‘Fancy and the Fox’ Impressions: This Town Needs a Heroine Now More Than Ever

Fancy and the Fox

The surrounding forests, from which your fiancée has yet to return, have suddenly become populated by evil spirits. Ugh. Surely nothing else can go wrong, right? Actually… there’s the tiny matter of three rather important orbs which have gone missing too, and obviously, you alone are able (or willing?) to look for them. Never a dull moment for Fancy, the protagonist in Fancy and the Fox!

While the story kinda borders on nonsensical, it did manage to keep me motivated until the credits rolled. Chances are the writing, of which there’s plenty, the game being presented in the form of a silent film and all, had something to do with that. Since there aren’t any actual puzzles, without a strong plot, the entire thing would likely have fallen apart; fortunately, that was not the case.

That said, at first, the whole thing didn’t make a lot of sense. But then little by little, orb by orb, the pieces of the puzzle came together, and… I got the worst ending. Or at least, I think I did. According to the developer, it depends on which items you manage to find by then. Well, suffice to say, I found but a few. Maybe things would have turned out differently, had I only spent more time exploring. Maybe.

Either way, bad (worst?) ending or not, I certainly had fun. Ain’t often the protagonist is female either, so there’s that too. So, think the outcome will be different, once the credits roll for you? Only one way to find out: download and play Fancy and the Fox! Oh and be sure to vote for it in the 2014 Indie Game Maker Contest afterwards, eh? Remember, your vote matters!
