Update v0.2a (5/19/2019)
Bug fixes and adjustments to villager behaviour. Also added undo for mask painting.
Read more about the update at:
After disaster struck the surrounding villages, the tribes were left without homes and searching for shelter. While searching for a new home, Bumi and Jamu discover a deserted campsite. Instead of leaving, they decide to start a new village, welcoming all the villagers without homes. It will take a lot of work, but maybe one day their little village will become something great.
A 3rd person village management game with city building, survival, and social elements. The game is currently in alpha, but provides the player with the core concepts:
- Paint your mask!
- Layout and build your village!
- Recruit a variety of unique villagers and assign them roles!
- Watch your villagers form relationships and engage in special events!
Supports keyboard and mouse, but XBox controller is preferred.

Super cute game, I didn't think this type of game was for me but I was allured by the cuteness and ended up playing as much as I could. Its v good :)
Great game dude. I love the work on this game so far and it looks amazing.
Can't wait to see this game become something of what Stonehearth couldn't be :p Just poking some jabs but none the less, good job.
Few Suggestions: ( If you have not seen them already )
- You should change your Itch.io to a more forum based format, comments boxes like these are usually only good for Game Jams and stuff, forums are so much cleaner and allows for easier suggestions and topics.
Saving of course :p
A quest list, while I do like remembering the information, I think a quest list would help when I am and doing something and I forget a Villager needs an item ( Turns out the Board has it, pointing it out would be nice, though I am an idiot )
Being able to give an item in my inventory directly. For example: I have a clover in my inventory 2, I talk to Jamu and I have inventory 1 selected, the game can't tell I am trying to give him the item, so I would have select inventory 2 and talk to him which then the game knows I am trying to give him an item. Just making it so when its in my inventory and I can give it to him no matter the slot would be a nice Quality of Life feature, sorry if this sounds weird to understand.
A villagers list with their feelings towards me and other villagers and if they are tired or not. ( Just to know if I can give them a break yet )
Can't wait for more man.
I heard about this game in a server and decided to check it out - I didn't regret it! I can't wait to see more as it progresses! :)
I thought that the game was really adorable and was sad when it ended. I am hoping that more will be added and this sees a full release, because I really enjoyed the game alot. I also included this in my Indie Game Showcase. Here is the gameplay highlight from Indie Game Showcase.
I really like this game, so far! I'd ask for a way to save, but I know you're already aware of that need for players :) I think it'd be interesting if your playable character had a need for food, as well.
A couple of bugs I've personally encountered:
- Sometimes upon booting up, the posts on the bullatin board have no visible text, particularly when posting gossip about the other villagers. The list shows no names but they can still be selected.
- Villagers with full inventories become "Stuck" if there's nowhere to deposit their supplies.They accept gifts of food but don't eat them and complain they're hungry, while refusing to move or do anything.
That aside, I completely adore this game so far! I love the concept and I'd love to see where it goes. The AI's are charming (though I feel like them being able to force you out of build mode to talk to you shouldn't be allowed/they should be made to wait) and the art style is adorable!
A little polish and some variety to the hunting mechanic/maybe the threats/sights the villagers mentioning being realized and I think this game can really be something!
A few base functions for the future:
Save feature, or at least an export/import system for masks.
Returning materials when demolishing structures as not to soft-lock the game. (I doubt stones and trees respawn, do they?)
Other than those, this seems to be going along really well. Reminds me of the old Animal Crossing games.
We've gotten a couple requests for a save system, so we'll definitely get that in when we can! As for demolishing, we haven't decided yet if we'll have the resources returned or respawned.
Thanks a lot for the feedback!
Incredibly cute and fun!
it would be so cool if there was a first person view and maybe add a render distens :D
it would be cool to have in game settings
maybe a way to give people jobs on the board and know what jobs people are doing.
First person mode would definitely be interesting! We're also hoping to add some more settings and customization in the future. Thanks a lot for playing :)
wow this game is so fun i love it.
i like how theres no fighting it a nice and calm game
This game looks really good, especially the npc interactions, though I am wondering if there is a goal in this game besides survival? Maybe their could be a combat mechanic where you delve into dungeons and certain tribe members are better at combat than others. Just a suggestion because even if a game is of the survival genre there has to be goals to keep the game interesting.
Thanks a lot Dokinim! We had some ideas for a main goal, as well as some more side content similar to how you described. Might be a bit before the next update, but if you have anymore suggestions we'd love to hear them!
None of my games are working on here someone help
Got a villager who is extremely rude... is there a way to kick these brats out when they disrespect their all-powerful bunny leader? I tried to kill her, but she gets back up.
Looking forward to future updates!!
Exiling villagers is actually something we wanted, but weren't sure about adding. We'll try give you some options ;)
Wonderful to hear! I'm excited to make these masked children kneel before me with my mighty, fearsome power! Mwahahaha~!!
Edit: Naea, I can't wait to kick you out of my village and feed you to the boars. Don't you backsass me.
I haven't played this game, but I can't wait to after reading this.
I cant play it... in order to shoot the bow you need to press both mouse buttons.. im on a laptop! doesn't work.. so sad! was really looking forward to playing this game! it looks so cute!!!
Thanks for letting us know MagicalMidgey! We'll come up with a solution for the next update :)
If this game could have a saving feature it could be amazing!
Hi, I made the horrible mistake of downloading this adorable gem for free. Is there anywhere I can donate to you? I'd love to support content like this!
If I'm not mistaken I think you can click the Download Now button a second time to donate. If not, I also have a patreon linked on my profile!
Thank you so much for the kind words and support! We're very happy you like the game :D
Absolutely love this game! Can't wait for there to be more to play!
So I was at the very beginning of the game and everytime I accidentally click on Jamu(not sure if that's right?) I get stuck. I can pause and rotate camera but that's it. I can't move or do anything else. So I have to continue to restart the game which results in me starting all over again. Please help ;-;
That's strange. Do you get stuck when you try talking to Jamu during the tutorial? Or is it afterwards?
a verry cute little game! played it for my small YT channel aswell, cant wait for more of this game to come out, i hope my support brings you further!
Thanks a lot Eshkova! We'd love to see your video :)
I just finished the demo and I absolutely love this game! I hope the full version is coming out soon :)
My only suggestion is that I wish there was a way to set all the little villagers to one task if you want them all to build or take a break, etc.
Hey deleightful! That's a good idea, we had something similar in mind for a structure that helps manage groups of villagers, but hadn't gotten around to implementing it just yet. Thanks a lot for the feedback!
Hello Cajji, my name is Lauro (Nick name Atomic Death) i'm from Brazil and i have played this game for only 3 minutes to know that have a lot of potential, the game is awesome and i'm sure that i will spend a lot of time in it, I've been thinking too about this game have others languages in the future and if you need (or like the idea) maybe i can help you with the translate of the game to English to Brazilian Portuguese.
I'm very happy with this game, is perfect!
I will wait for your response.
Hi Lauro, nice to meet you :)
We hadn't planned on it, but we'll let you know if we end up adding translations. Thanks a lot!
reminds me a lot of Animal crossing so cute
So, any idea when the full version might be out?
At the moment it's undecided how far we'd like go to with the game. We'd love to make a full release, but it may be a while before we decide as a team if we'd like to implement all the features we had planned.
We're glad you're interested though :)
A good start, I really like that you can upgrade buildings and I hope there will be relationship improvements as you talk and do missions for other villagers. :)
Thanks a lot Cryptic Hybrid, it was fun watching you explore the game and figuring everything out! Thanks for playing!
I have questions about the boars... and the monster
I am very excited about future updates for this game. The writing for the characters is fun and fresh, they have very distinct personalities. Keep it up!
Is there any way that you make this game playable with a track pad?
Do you mean like a laptop track pad? It should work- unless you're having issues with left and right clicking for the bow.
Really had fun with this game! I installed it fairly recently, but it may not have been the latest update, so there may be things I commented on that have been tweaked since I played. Either way, I love the artwork and the overall vibes of the game!
I do hope there will be more buildings or ways to interact with them if you can implement it, like being able to customize tents the same way you can customize masks, or the villagers being able to physically sit at the eatery like they can on the benches and have food on the table. Also would love to see more inventory slots and animal varieties, like chickens.
Regardless, great job on the demo and good luck with the full game!
Lil Tribals was EPIC! My video was a tad on the quieter side but this game was amazing. It has amazing art that sets it apart from other games. It controls nicely, It took me a bit to get comfortable with the all of the controls but once I did it was smooth sailing. I love what you guys have done and cant wait to see more!
I really love this game and can't wait for the full version but I was wondering if there was a way to erase mistakes when painting your mask without having to start over all together?
At the moment there's no undo for mask painting, but I'll see what I can do to add it to the next update! Thanks a lot for playing, glad you enjoyed :)
Hello I have a bug! When a villager was hungry I tried to give them food but they keep saying; "No thank you". Then they keep continuing saying "I'm hungry.."! I think this is a bug.. If so, please fix it.
Thanks for letting us know, we'll have that fixed ASAP! Thanks for playing!
Also I have a question! When a bug is fixed or when a update occurs, do I have reinstall the game? Also can you add an option to change your gender/mask?
Unfortunately you'll have to download the game every time we update the game. I'll be looking into ways around this in the future though!
At the moment we like to consider all the characters to be genderless, but we may add more character customization options to allow for more self-expression and gender identity :)
Kind of dissapointed tbh. As soon as I finish the tutorial, Jamu immediately starts ragging on me and it doesn't change, even when I upgrade everything and have tons of food stocked. I even try giving gifts and talking with the villagers, yet they get pissy right away. Am I doing something wrong? Them yelling at me every couple of seconds and having them throw stuff around is troubling.
Edit: Works now (lol)! Really cute, and fun!
We've been hearing this is happening to quite a few people, but it is definitely not intended. We're looking into it and will hopefully be fixing it very soon. Sorry Jamu is being so rude :( but thanks for playing!
Edit: Should be fixed now!
Great start to what is going to be a fun game! Love the edition of personalizing your own mask, would be great if you could have different animal head shapes! Love the demo and can't wait for the finished product!
Thanks a lot GooseFat!
We considered letting the player have different animal head shapes at one point- maybe we'll bring it back :O. Really glad you enjoyed it, we hope to update it more soon :)!
