What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Our studio has a big focus on community-based development and this is already the third time we launch a game on Steam Early Access. Both of our previous games greatly benefited from the experience and so we have returned to develop and improve our new game together with our players once again.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The Wandering Village is planned to stay in Early Access for one year or longer.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will have a bigger set of features and more content. We plan to add new building types, new biomes, new events/missions and expand the background story of the game. It will also be more polished, having gone through lots of testing and QA and will hopefully be localised in more languages. Also, we're sure players will have lots of interesting ideas during Early Access which we will consider implementing as well.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The most important features of the game are already there: building, farming, scavenging, research, scouting and controlling the giant creature. The current version forms an enjoyable gameplay loop, but is still a bit bare-bones, lacking content and polish. We also plan to add more features such as trading with merchants and more advanced scouting mechanics.
Also, there are certainly still some bugs that will need to be ironed out.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price may increase moderately when we release out of Early Access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We are planning to communicate with players about new features and ideas for the game and gather their feedback and bug reports in our forums and on Discord.”

In a world where mysterious plants are spreading all over the earth, emitting toxic spores as they grow, a small group of survivors seeks shelter on the back of a giant, wandering creature they call 'Onbu'.
Become their leader, build their settlement and form a symbiotic relationship with the creature to survive together in this hostile, yet beautiful post-apocalyptic world that now surrounds you.

Build your village

A functioning village is the basis of your survival. Build your settlement and expand it over the creature's back. Plan production chains and optimize them to utilize the limited space as efficiently as possible. Create a society that can overcome any challenge.

Live on the creature’s back

Living on the back of another organism comes with its own set of challenges. Will you live in symbiosis, bond with the creature and survive on mutual trust? Or will you become a parasite, only aiming to ensure a better life for your villagers? The choice is yours.

Discover different biomes

Travel through a multitude of different biomes and adapt your village to their unique opportunities and threats. Scout your environments and send out foraging missions to gather rare resources and ancient artifacts.

Research new technologies

Remnants of the old world hold knowledge that has long been forgotten, but can be unearthed by your villagers. Find and research these technologies, but use them wisely, as progress can be a double-edged sword.

Survive the wastelands

Ensure the survival of both your villagers and your Onbu, even though poisonous spores, merciless weather, bloodsucking parasites and many more challenges mean that the odds are often stacked against you.
