Village Monsters, “a Monstrous Life Sim Game” by lone wolf developer Josh Bossie is currently seeking Kickstarter funding, with the goal of raising $16,000 by October 12.
Having originally launched its campaign on the popular crowd-funding site on September 12, Village Monsters has already amassed over $6,000, with 232 backers pledging their support.
Bossie describes the game as a relaxing life simulation set in a world of a long-abandoned videogame: “You play as someone booting up the game for the first time in decades only to discover that it is nothing like you remember. The monsters that were once enemies have thrown away their weapons and have settled down in a peaceful village of their own making. Stranger still, they’re inviting you to come join them.”
According to Bossie, the game draws inspiration from the acclaimed Animal Crossing series in order to create that carefree village life experience we’ve all come to know and love other the years. Players will be able to explore the quaint, yet rather outlandish world of Village Monsters to their heart’s content as they engage in activities such as: fishing and bug-catching, home design, solving intriguing mysteries, and just chatting to the whimsical monster residents.
The game is currently slated to release – if funded that is – sometime in October 2018 for PC, Mac and Linux.
A demo is currently available for PC and Linux users, which can find right here.
