What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I'm a solo dev working on all aspects of the game alone.
The game is in a playable and already interesting state, but it can be improved a lot, and get so much more content !
I need more time to implement more features, and I need feedback on the already implemented aspects, to improve the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Several months at least, a lot of features are missing”

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

“Shortly : More species, less bugs. More mysterious content is also planned !”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Wild Souls is already a chill ecosystem simulation, with enough existing features to spend hours having a good time.
It has all the essential core features of the final version (working seasons, animals behaviors and plant spreading, biomes creation). It's a good representation of it's full potential.”

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

“Yes. The price will evolve as new features are added to the game.”

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

“There is already a discord server with people testing the game since the very first demo.
The community can also join Twitch and see me working live while I'm adding more content to the game.
I'm making sure I'm listening to my community and following both their suggestions and my own inspiration.
An association is involved in the process to help me implement new animals and plants, and make sure they are faithfull to their real-life counterparts.”

About This Game

Plant a tree, watch the forest grow.
Wild Souls is a chill ecosystem sim with no time pressure, inspired by Don't Starve and Zoo Tycoon.
Build your own world like you would a garden, experiment which animals and plant species can live together, manage and balance the populations, write YOUR stories.

You start as a Souls Keeper : a being with the power to gather the souls of recently deceased animals and plants.
Those souls can be offered a new life, in a new body. But which body ? You decide.
Decide which species you're gonna choose to build your own world, plan ahead, improvise, experiment.

As you learn the specific needs of each species, you'll get closer to a perfectly balanced ecosystem : follow the bloodines of the creatures you added, watch their offsprings grow, and witness the stories of their lifes.

A mysterious guide will show you the way


Plant a proud willow by a river. It may die, put down by a beaver or the thunder.
Or survive long enough to become the elder of a massive forest, shelter to many forest-dwellers animals...
What will it's story looks like ?

Key features :


  • Collect souls as a currency, spend them wisely to add new creatures and plants.
  • Create different biomes by painting which climate should each part of the map belong to
  • Control any animal : you can now try to survive in the very environment you created !
  • Observe your world evolve, see the livings interacts with each other in a lot of ways
  • Follow the rythm of seasons : Winter can be a difficult time for all, but in the Spring flowers will regrow on their own !
  • Relax : listen to the sounds of nature, the music, and release stress
  • Unlock new species by completing little quests


Seasons will change the look of the landscape :





Fire is a dangerous hasard, animals will flee before it, but some may not be that lucky...

Before you decide to get the game, you should know :

Wild Souls is in its early stage of development.
Wild Souls will be in early access for quite a time (several months at least), and will continue to get updated (new species, less bugs) a long time after it's "final" release.
It's an ambitious project made by a solo dev that I don't want to rush, or let un-updated shortly after it's release.


If you decide to start the adventure, you and your feedback will be very welcome in the discord community !
