Do Not Feed The Monkeys Swings Into Action Next Year

Publisher BadLand Games has announced that Do Not Feed The Monkeys will officially be releasing sometime during the first half of 2018.

Developed by Fictiorama Studios, Do Not Feed The Monkeys is a story-driven “digital voyeur simulator”. As the newest member of the cleverly named “Primate Observation Club”, it will be up to players to use the technology available to them in order to spy on a number of (mostly unhappy) residents living within an apartment building. By tapping into surveillance cameras and unprotected webcams, players will be able to watch the lives of each of these individuals unfold before their very eyes.

Players will also be able to browse through social media networks, wikis, websites, newspapers, and the like, in order to gather information about their subjects. While nothing is off-limits when it comes to collecting information, the player is strictly forbidden from interacting with their subjects. Of course, that’s a rule that, depending upon the actions of the player, may end up getting broken. Everything that players choose to do, or not do, will have consequences, meaning players will need to think carefully before acting.

Do Not Feed The Monkeys is slated for release on PC via Steam sometime before summer of next year. Do Not Feed The Monkeys will also be one of the 70 titles to shown this year in the fifth annual Day of the Devs festival, presented by Double Fine and iam8bit, held on November 11. Will you be joining the Primate Observation Club yourself? Let us know in the comments below!

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
