OverviewOverview

You play a fox in a magical fairy tale forest. The world extends in front of you in stylised form, with trees, mountains and streams glistening with sparkles of life. You run, jump, climb and dip your paws in every aspect of the world. But it’s the plants and other creatures, and how they respond to you, that really draw you in. Looking deeply into these creatures’ eyes, you share a song and learn new abilities from them. You progress by embracing this interrelated ecosystem and finding your place at the heart of the world.

Fe’s world comes into its own after completing the few hours of challenge, when you can explore to your heart’s content. The space that initially seemed alien and otherworldly has been restored to harmony and becomes a place to coexist in.

Although there may be slight confusion at first, you’ll soon discover how to move around, climb trees, dip in rivers and communicate with other animals. Fe lets you explore its world at your pace. Take your time enjoying the environment and experiencing what it’s like to be a tiny creature setting out into a world.

Content Rating

This game was rated PEGI 7 for pictures or sounds likely to be scary to young children, and non-realistic violence towards fantasy creatures. The ‘Silent Ones’ are menacing monsters that relentlessly chase the player in some situations. The setting can be tense and dark at times, and might be scary to younger children. There are also instances of violence towards some of the fantasy characters present.

You can pop-up a map at any time to assist with navigation. Singing to the other animals is a process guided with both sound and visual prompts. Singing to the flora and fauna also leads to guiding visual and audible prompts about which animals you need to find to progress. Singing from the top of trees brings birds to show you the way.

There is very little reading but some textual guidance is quite small (although has a good contrast). You can use the left trigger to zoom your view of the world and make it larger. The colour prompts for the different songs each have a symbol, to be identifiable without needing to see the colours.
