OverviewOverview

The Wandering Village is a strategy game where you build a city to escape a world made toxic by spores. You seek shelter on the back of a giant, wandering creature called Onbu. It's unusual because as well as building a thriving settlement, you have to also take care of the creature on who you are building. You need to build a symbiotic relationship to survive together in the hostile, yet beautiful post-apocalyptic world that now surrounds you.

Like other simulation games you need to gather resources, farm various crops, send out foraging missions to gather ores and survive a variety of different biomes and events, build a relationship with a giant and influence its actions. Unlike those simulations, you have to also deal with the toxic spores as you travel through different biomes with specific and different challenges each time you play.

Living on the back of wandering creature comes with challenges. You need to maintain their health and build trust. Your goal is to find a place where you can settle down with the creatre and live in peace. It's an Ecology/Biology inspired game that puts gameplay and imagination rather than issues first.
