What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have completed about three quarters of what we want to create but we feel like now is a good time to get feedback from people and show what we have been working on.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We anticipate finishing the remaining levels and gameplay in about six months.”

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

“We intend to increase number of levels and add several new game mechanics. We also must add a more robust tutorial and redo the menu art.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We have over 100 levels built using the current game mechanics.”

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

“We want to maintain the price at around the cost of a cup of coffee when we release.”

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

“We welcome any and all feedback. This is our first top down puzzle game and the first game using pixel art so we need to know if we are doing things right moving forward.”

About This Game

The test monkeys have escaped the lab.

Hypothesis 1
Catching all of the monkeys will result in not being fired.

Hypothesis 2
One can catch monkeys by scaring them into traps

Hypothesis 3
The scariest things for a monkey are loud noises and potential death

  • Flashbangs
  • Bombs
  • Missiles
  • Firebombs

Hypothesis 4
Kill rabid monkeys so they can't spread their cooties (or so I've heard. I'm not a virologist).
