Hva utviklerne har å si:

Hvorfor Early Access?

“If you are not interested in joining Niche’s development process, we encourage you to wait for the full release in Q2/Q3 2017. The game is still very bare bones, with lots of features and polishing missing.

We love to work together with our community to create an entertaining and unique game. Our playtester group provided us with valuable feedback and suggestions during the early stages of the development. Early Access allows us to easily collaborate with interested people in order to evolve Niche into its final form.”

Hvor lenge antas det at dette spillet vil være i Early Access?

“We want to release the full version only when we and the community think that the game is ready. We estimate that this will be in Q2/Q3 2017.”

Hvordan er det planlagt at fullversjonen vil være forskjellig fra Early Access-versjonen?

“The final version of the game will have more content and features. We are going to add additional genes, biomes, plants, preys, etc. Existing features and controls will also be more polished.”

Hva er nåværende tilstand på Early Access-versjonen?

“This is an alpha version of the game. It is neither content nor feature complete.
The game currently features over 40 genes, 3 biomes, one type of carnivore, five different food sources and 4 islands.”

Vil spillet være priset annerledes under og etter Early Access?

“The final price is going to be lower than the Early Access price.”

Hvordan planlegger dere å involvere samfunnet i utviklingsprosessen?

“The people who love Niche are a vital part of our development process. Features we implement are discussed to gather feedback. We also encourage our community to suggest their own ideas.”

Update Preview 0.3 - Jungle Biome

The February update is here ^^
It's not quite finished and still rather buggy, that's why we uploaded it on a separate branch. This preview version is labeled as version 0.2.3.

The timing is a bit unfortunate. We were offered a booth at the GDC this week, so we will be off to San Fransisco on Friday and be gone for about a week. So please have a little patience with us in terms of response time.

What is new?
- New island travelling system (Once travelled there is no way back, islands are randomly connected)
- 3 new islands (Jungle/Grass Island, Oasis Island, Jungle Island)
- New biome: Jungle (along with 3 new predators)
- Changed sickness mechanic (having two different immunity genes is more important)

--------------------------------------------------
How to get the update:
> right click on Niche in your library
> click on properties
> select the beta tab
> enter “AccessBuggyJunglePreview” and click check code

This update features a lot of new content and we had to rebuild the game quite a bit. Because of this older save files will unfortunately not be compatible with this update.

If you are a Youtuber/Streamer:
Please inform your viewers how to access the update and let them know it is a preview version.

Now the big bug hunt and feedback round begins.
We would be very grateful if you could help us with this.
Thank you all very much for your time and support :)

Om dette spillet

Niche is still in development. Please read the Early Access text below before purchasing. Thank you :)

Niche is a fresh blend of turn-based strategy and simulation combined with roguelike elements. Shape your own animal tribe and find an ecological niche for it to live in.
Keep your tribe alive against dangers, such as hungry predators, climate change and spreading sickness. Resource management and smart breeding based on real genetics are key in Niche. All worlds and animals are procedurally generated.



Niche is played from a top-down perspective, giving the player a god-like view over the board. Rounds are represented by a day cycle, in which the player controls animals to move and perform actions (collecting food, scouting a new field, mating, attacking a predator, etc). Animals have a limited lifespan, which makes procreation indispensable. An animal’s characteristics are defined by its genes, which are being passed on to the next generation. Challenges come in form of animals dying and dwindling resources. The game is lost, when a player's tribe goes extinct. In the next game a new world is generated, but the previously unlocked genes remain.

Games that inspired us
- The Creatures series
- Spore (mainly the first stage)
- The Curious Expedition
- Black & White
- Don’t Starve

Educational aspects
While playing Niche, the player is introduced to the scientific mechanics of genetics (featuring dominant-recessive, co-dominant inheritance, etc). The game also features the five pillars of population genetics (genetic drift, genetic flow, mutation, natural selection, sexual selection). All knowledge is interwoven with the game-mechanics. This creates the effect of learning by playing.
