Village Monsters is still happily in development, but will no longer be posting updates to indieDB

I'm a one-man operation which makes posting to many sites too difficult. As such, I'm consolidating where I post updates.

If you wish to follow development of Village Monsters then you have no shortage of options!

Have you ever wondered what happens inside the world of an abandoned video game? All those NPCs with their artificial lives...what happens to them after the game is powered off for that final time?

Village Monsters is an relaxing village life sim set in one such forgotten world.

A Monstrous Community

  • Befriend dozens of whimsical monster villagers, each with their own personalities, interests, and problems to solve.
  • Unravel unique personal stories as you build friendships and learn the history of the village and its inhabitants.
  • Purchase a fixer-upper and build it up into your very own comfy-cozy homestead.

Relaxing, Open-Ended Gameplay

  • Pursue several laid-back hobbies like treasure hunting, creature collecting, mushroom gardening, and fishing.
  • Engage in a variety of daily tasks and activities. Earn money with a part time job, participate in events and holidays, or go adventuring with your villager friends.
  • Complete a massive journal that tracks all your collectibles, challenges, and achievements.

A Living World

  • Explore vast areas outside the village ranging from vibrant forests, arctic deserts, enchanting lakes, and ruins of a best forgotten empire.
  • Discover a simulated world with its own rules and interactions. Shifting weather patterns, seasonal changes, and realistic creature behaviors makes the world come alive.
  • Solve world-spanning puzzles and uncover hidden secrets as you piece together an overarching mystery.


HOW CAN I FOLLOW DEVELOPMENT?

I'm very active on Twitter, so if that's your thing too then I'd love to have you follow along.

There's also email (josh@warpdogs.com). Beyond that, there's lot of other choices!

Finally, if you think about it there's really just a finite number of humans out there, so if we both talk to enough of them then we'll eventually find each other. I look forward to seeing you!
