Do Not Feed the Monkeys, an Award Winning ‘Digital Voyeur Simulator’ Launched their  ‘Closed Beta’ today in Partnership with Alawar Premium

Do Not Feed the Monkeys; is an award-winning unique “digital voyeur simulator,” that launched in closed beta today. The title is due to release on Steam in early Q4.

After more than two years of close collaboration in the development of Do Not Feed The Monkeys, Badland and Fictiorama have handed over the publishing and distribution to Alawar Premium to reach a broader range of players.

Both sides agree that this is an excellent opportunity for the game to gain more exposure internationally since Alawar Premium has previously released a similar genre title Beholder which led the game developers, Fictiorama and Badland, to work with the Russian-based publisher.

“Do Not Feed the Monkeys is our most ambitious project to date,” comments Alberto Oliván, Narrative Designer at Fictiorama Studios. “We have had total freedom when it comes to design the stories and the game’s mechanics and, as a result, the player will experience different situations and face different endings based on the decisions they take.”

About the Game

Do Not Feed the Monkeys is a “digital voyeur simulator” a story-driven title in which you invade the privacy of dozens of strangers while you witness their most intimate moments, trying to keep up with the rent payment and have enough money to buy some food from time to time…

You’ll be the new member of the “Primate Observation Club,” which of course is not the wildlife conservation society that the name suggests. It’s a cover for a clandestine group that watches over people through surveillance cameras and unprotected webcams. Tired of living in a shabby apartment and having boring jobs, you have been accepted as part of this exclusive organization, so you’ll be able to spy on the “caged monkeys.”

The game, which has strong “pixel art” visual style, allows you to browse social networks, wikis, websites, newspapers, online stores and chat rooms, where you can collect information about the “monkeys” you’re spying on. The Club forbids you from interacting with those you observe (i.e., “feed the monkeys”) … but what will you do? Are you going to intercede in the name of justice? Will you sabotage their dreams? Or will you sit around doing nothing while you watch the world burn? Everything you do (or stop doing) will have consequences.

What to Expect While Playing?!

  • MONITOR hacked surveillance cameras
  • PRY INTO the lives of dozens of subjects
  • INTERACT (or not!) with fun, sad, horrific, surprising, dramatic, or sci-fi themed narratives
  • DECIDE THE FATE of the subjects: will you help them? Will you expose their most intimate secrets?
  • BROWSE social networks profiles, wikis, websites, newspapers, online stores… Use chat logs, email tools and more!
  • MANAGE your resources: will you spend all your savings on buying more “cages”, or will pay rent? Are – you healthy enough to work? How many sleepless nights can you stand before collapsing from exhaustion?
  • REPLAY to experience different climactic endings
