(This pic is a hint at one of the changes coming.)

If anyone wants to try out the beta on Steam, here's the code:


To use this code (you must already own Vilmonic), restart your Steam client (just in case) and go to your Steam library and right-click on Vilmonic in the list of games, then select "Properties" from the popup menu. In the window that opens, click on the "BETAS" tab and paste the beta access code in the text area provided then click on the "CHECK CODE" button. Once the beta is unlocked, you can switch back and forth between beta and latest release using the drop-down menu at the top of the tab.

Here's a mock-up for the in-game GENE EDITOR I'm working on. Trying to simplify the UI as much as possible to work with mouse/touch. Top: copy buffer, Bottom: genes and selection range.

If it seems like I'm bouncing around haphazardly between Vilmoniprojects, it's because I AM! Gene Editor... or New Life Form... or Mobile... or Humod Future... or More Craftables... Ugh, which one next??? :-)

Based on cellular automata, i.e. Conway's Game of Life, with some additions to make them fit into the Vilmoniverse. Will poison fungs? Can be eaten?? Antagonize zombs??? New crafting ingredient????

This will be a new DLC add-on. Here's an animation showing how jelly-like these are:

Another add-on in the works, L-system "trees":

“I’ve discovered that sexual reproduction in Vilmonic is extremely difficult.”

Victoria wasn’t happy with her fungaloids. She’d combined the genes from two mushrooms, but the results were disappointing: no matter what she tried, the results were mostly “non-viable life forms.” Little did Victoria know that the next day, not only would those fungi be flourishing – she’d have written her name in their D.N.A.

Working on the mechanism for implementing DLC in Vilmonic. Here's my test, a new avatar add-on body part!

Life! Don’t talk to me about life. Unless you’re talking about breeding artificial lifeforms in something like Vilmonic, where you guide evolution to help increasingly sophisticated beasties flourish. Or just whack ’em next to some predatory zombitons and see what happens.
