Rolled back last update yesterday

The first AI/social interactions update was posted last night but I had to take it down temporarilybecause of a compatibility issue with the package. I am working on the patch now and hope to get that update out today or as soon as the issue is addressed.

Road map update

Hi there, I hope you have all had a positive start to the year.

I wanted to write a post about the next update in the works. I've been really struggling with getting the social aspects of the troop right. It's by far the most difficult part of the project but I wanted to reach out and say it is being addressed and to any player that thought the game development had finished it is far from it.

I have decided to implement another level of relationship between the gorillas which I hope will finally give the AI of the troop the feel I am going after. This is on top of the quests or tasks the females can ask the silverback to complete, giving more purpose to player.

I will keep you informed of the progress and hope to have some updates each week over the next three or four when I feel we can then have solid relationship structure for the troop to sit along side the survival elements in there now.

I really appreciate the support and I am striving to make this a unique and interesting indie title. Please reach out with comments, forum posts or private messages if you have any feedback, ideas.

About This Game

Welcome to The Lonely Gorilla store page!

This is a animal survival game in the tropical African rain forests and grasslands.

  • A living, breathing environment.
  • Advanced AI simulating animal behaviour.
  • Full climate and weather system.

What do you do in the game?

Explore Rain-forests, grasslands and mountain ranges. Role play as a wild silver-back Gorilla separated from his troop. You must survive the harsh environment finding food, water and shelter.

The ultimate goal is to be reunited with your troop, then protect them against predators and the environment. Can you regain their bonding after the separation? As the alpha male only you can keep the troop together and have the right to mate with the females to produce offspring. If bonding is not high this will not occur, and can even lead to challenges from rival males for troop leader status.

As food resources dwindle, you must lead your troop to new areas while keeping them safe.

How long can you survive?

The game is an indie experience from a small team with a focus on the environment and wildlife. We want to give you a true feeling of this amazing, vastly unexplored area of our planet.

  • Highly detailed environments.
  • Full day night cycle and accurate climate system.
  • Plant growth system.
  • Danger from poachers.
  • Threat from predators and rivals.

We hope you enjoy exploring the beauty of the grasslands, rivers, and rain-forests of Africa. Authentically crafted terrain, vegetation and animals. We would love to hear your feedback on the game, and what you would like to see as we develop towards release.
