In a world where mysterious plants are spreading all over the earth, emitting toxic spores as they grow, a group of people seeks shelter on the back of a giant, wandering creature. Becoming their leader, players build both their settlement and a symbiotic relationship with the gentle beast to survive together in this hostile, yet beautiful post-apocalyptic world that now surrounds them.
At its core, The Wandering Village is a city-building and resource management game with rogue-like and survival elements. Players need to farm various crops to keep their villagers fed, send out foraging missions to gather rare resources and scout the environment while constantly expanding their settlement.
Of course, living on the back of a living, breathing beast comes with its own challenges, such as helping to maintain the creature’s health and building trust, which might even lead to the beast paying attention to your requests as it wanders on through a variety of different biomes, each with its own perks and challenges.
