Playdate: Running wild in 'The Deer God' and 'Castle Crashers'

Fun fact: If you do a Bing voice-search on Xbox One for The Deer God, instead of coming back with the option to download the indie sidescroller you'll see results for the 1996 Greg Kinnear flick Dear God, an Avenged Sevenfold album with a song named "Dear God" on it and absolutely zero games named The Deer God. Actually finding the absolutely gorgeous venison-focused title takes a lot more work, which is strange considering that it's one of this month's free downloads as part of Xbox's Games with Gold promotion. No matter! We did the digging for you and are going to play the game live on Twitch (along with Castle Crashers Remastered) starting at 6 pm ET / 3 pm PT.

Is the game worth subscribing to Gold for? Find out with myself and Sean Buckley right here on this post, the Engadget Gaming home page or Twitch.tv/joystiq. You know, if it, ahem, behooves you to do so.
