A New Demo & Trailer for Village Monsters!



2017 07 13 16 20 30

I'm very excited to announce that a new demo for Village Monsters is now available - and there's also a new trailer for you to enjoy right alongside it!

You can find the demo right here at my website, and the trailer below.

This release is still considered Pre-Alpha, which means that there are missing or incomplete features, placeholders, and bugs.

Still, this latest demo represents the most amount of work I've put into the game so far, and while it's still in a rough state, it is absolutely playable with many core features and fun things to experiment with.

Here's an sample of things you can find in the current demo:

  • Catch bugs and other critters, then donate them to the Historical Society
  • Experience a day/night cycle with dynamic weather
  • Go fishing!
  • Talk with nearly 20 unique villagers with distinct personalities
  • Buy furniture, then decorate your house with your purchases
  • Shake trees and dig up half-buried items to discover treasures, money, and...food?
  • Discover all kinds of hidden secrets and easter eggs (be sure to check each mailbox!)

oink oink

So go check it out, and be sure to follow me here at indieDB, on Twitter, and on Facebook.

Work has begun on the full Alpha demo which will be releasing sometime in September, so look forward to weekly Developer Diary Digests on my progress starting this weekend!

Enjoy your week, everyone!

      Hello everyone! I finally mustered the balls to come here and ask for your advice.
      To simply put it, my friend and I would like to emulate, or make a small private server of, this pretty old MMO.
      We've managed to obtain the database of said MMO, even though it's not the most recent version.
      The issue is.. both of us are what you'd call non-programmers, so we have no idea where we should start.
      Having the database we've used SQL Server to take a look at it, but that's as far as we go.
      He says we need somone who's familiar with c# & sql programming languages to help us set this up, skills that none of us have.
      All we want is to put a small server up and running so that the two of us and a couple other friends can play together, kind of like minecraft.
      We'd like to find people to help us set this up, or to at least guide us on what we have to do so we can hire some programmers.
      So I'd like to ask:
      Since we have the database and (I think) don't need reverse engineering, what are the next steps to make it work and have the server go live? What are the programms that we need to use for said steps? What kind of skills should we look for in the people we'd hire to set the server up? I'm sorry if this sounds halfassed but I really appreciate any advice you'd have to offer.
      Thank you in advance!

      Hi everyone,
      I'm new to this forum, just getting to know the lay of the land, so I'll just jump in with my question.
      After some intense development period that lasted 10 months, my friend The Programmer and I (The Designer) just launched our first FREE game on GooglePlay, called Starman Journey to Mars. For those interested, you can check it out in the link bellow.
      So now that production is done, we're stuck with the relatively unexpected challenge of actually promoting the game and getting players. To that end we welcome any advice about where we need to go from here and what we need to focus on. Can anyone help point us in the right direction? Any Marketing advice would be worth its weight in gold to us
      So far, our game has been received relatively well on the store but we are also interested in any feedback you might have, should you choose to play it.
      Do you like it? Any strong point or weaknesses we should be focusing on?
      Thanks in advance to anyone willing to take the time to answer or give the game a try.
      Starman Journey to Mars Team

      I fail to find the youtube video where they (author and commenters) about "Game Designers" who are in reality "Story Tellers". Puzzles for my intellect, racing for adrenalin. The combination (super mario): fun. I stopped playing story based games after monkey island II because of the disapointing ending. Also I do not watch Lost or GoT. So what puzzles do you think about? I never understood star craft: It is like real life, thousands way to success, not the single solution. It is not like math. It is not fun.
      Animals, so you are an Artist? Links to a gallery? Mario has cute animals. Better than candies. It sets candy crush apart, but after 30 minutes watching it, I get sick in the stomache 😉
