Just announced by Stray Fawn Studio is The Wandering Village, a city builder/sim title where survivors establish a settlement on the back of a giant wandering creature. The game has been announced to launch on Steam's Early Access on PC in the second half of 2021. The developers have also announced a Kickstarter for those who wish get exclusive rewards while also supporting further development of The Wandering Village.
The game is set in a world where mysterious plants are spreading across the Earth. The plants emit toxic spores, and a group of people seek refuge on a giant wandering creature. The player becomes their leader and tries to build a settlement and a symbiotic relationship with the beast they are now depending on to survive in a post-apocalyptic world that they now live in.
Players will need to farm crops to keep their villagers fed, send out foraging missions to gather rare resources and scout the environment while expanding their settlement. Maintaining the trust and the health of the creature that the player and their village is living on is also a requirement, and if enough trust is built the beast might listen to the player's requests as it wanders through a variety of different biomes.
If you're interested in backing the project on Kickstarter, you can check it out here. The Early Bird Villager gets you the game for around 21 Canadian dollarydoos, or about 16 American freedom dollars. While the Kickstarter will last 31 days the Early Bird pledge will only last for the next 2 days, so be quick on the mark if The Wandering Village strikes your fancy.
The Wandering Village will be available on Steam's Early Access for the second half of 2021. It will be available on Kickstarter for the next 31 days.
