After years waiting for a hero to fight, the monsters and villains of an abandoned video game soon grow tired of doing nothing and begin creating lives for themselves. This is when the player enters the game in Village Monsters, a village life sim where players can plant gardens, build homes, make demonic friends, and find what lies in the aftermath of the abandoned game it takes place in.
Village Monsters has the player acting as the player, a newly-arrived person looking to explore the game world that has been so long forgotten. Instead of battle and conquest, though, players will find an easy-going life amongst the creatures and beasts, able to chat with the monsters and help them out with their problems.
Players can look forward to making homes for themselves in this world, with various decorations and pieces of furniture to decorate it with. When not doing that, players can take up archeology and dig some holes, go fishing, seek out fossils, collect the various natural animals in the woods, solve puzzles for the monsters, and find out about the local holidays and traditions the monsters have come up with inside this video game world. Players can also seek out the abandoned game that it was supposed to be, finding remnants of possible battles and dangerous plots.
Players looking to own a dog and chat with some skeletons and zombies across the seasons can follow Village Monsters’ development through its Itch.io page, and they can also try the game’s early alpha, which is available to download there as well.
