What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I've been working on Village Monsters for 3 years. I'm really happy with what I've accomplished so far, but it's an ambitious game and I'm just one lonesome developer. With Early Access I can invite the community to join me in the development process. Your feedback and insight will help me build the best possible version of Village Monsters!

It's like they say: it takes a village!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Village Monsters will remain in Early Access for approximately one year.”

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

“In terms of content, I intend for the game to roughly double in size between Early Access and the full release: additional seasonal events, village activities, and homestead upgrades, plus a dozen areas to explore with associated collectibles and lore.

I also plan to include greater story elements, cutscenes for villager relationships, and post-story content in the final version.

Finally, I anticipate a great deal of iteration on what's already available in Early Access to ensure things are polished and balanced by version 1.0.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Many of the major features & systems of Village Monsters have already been implemented in some capacity. While things are still rough and unfinished, the overall core gameplay is solid and will be iterated on repeatedly.

Here's a more specific list of what's available:

  • A cozy village with 30+ monster villagers to befriend
  • Each villager has hundreds of unique lines of dialogue
  • Fishing! Catch dozens of fishy friends and complete your fishing journal
  • Critter Collecting! Catch wild critters and tame them to become pets
  • Treasure Hunting! Unearth lore-rich artifacts, valuable gems, and more
  • Mushroom Gardening! Grow and mutate all sorts of weird fungi
  • A purchasable homestead
  • Odd Jobs, aka minigames for villagers to build relationships and earn money
  • 6+ huge areas outside the village to unlock and explore
  • Four distinct seasons with different types of weather, events, and flavor
  • Secrets, ancient lore, easter eggs, and ...?
  • Embarrassing wordplay

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

“Yes, the price of Village Monsters will increase upon leaving Early Access.”

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

“Each week in Early Access will have a different development focus or theme voted on by the community. Overall player feedback will be used to guide the direction of development throughout Early Access.

Community involvement is the primary reason I've turned to Early Access, so I plan to utilize it early and often!
