Welcome, Villager! 

You are on this island to build a cosy little town for the peeple that want to live here.

Gather wood and stones to build and unlock other buildings. Some produce resources for you, others make your inhabitants happy. Well-fed and happy peeple produce more resources, but keep them hungry or sad and they will leave. They might seem a bit lazy, but without them, buildings won't produce anything!

Build your first house and somebody will come soon, but there is no rush! Take your time and explore the island. There is no pressing matter, no harsh lose-condition, so be creative and build something beautiful.

Be good to them, and have fun.


This little game started as a quarantine project, partly inspired by my desire to create a relaxing city-builder and mostly inspired by this amazing tile-set by Cluly.

This is a pico-8 project, so the default controls are Z, X, and the arrow-keys.

Can also be found on the pico-8 BBS.

Cute game!

I've been playing for an hour and this is pretty engaging. :3


Game is pretty cool and fun and all but a saving feature would be the cherry on the cake, and maybe a few more decorative option, like making an artificial river.

wouldnt it be Better having more to build ?

It would be better too, but like, I don't know, making my perfect little town doesn't mean for me having a ton of things in it, rather having a ton of pretty spots


Yea Understandable

Cool game

its the beast but i wish it would save the game

i love this game so much! is there ever going to be any updates


Really enjoyed building a tiny town, the art is lovely!


Good game. Keep it up♡♡

Great game! It gives me some Kingdom of Keflings vibes, which I used to play a lot. Though I wish it had more sound effects.

Edit: Nevermind, I just had my volume down lol

but can i win?


Thank you for a few hours of fun. Help me relax on my day off.


Great Game! I love it to play it on my phone :) thank u! 

Great game!

why is first player always keyboard

i cant build a stone storage

i have the materials and everything


I expected the game to stop at 99 peeple, but it didn't. At this point I decided not to wait to reach 999!

Can you make an android apk file instead of zip because I cant install the file


I fear I don't have quite the time for that, but you can also just play in the browser (just press the play button on the page), works great on mobile phones :)

Small humble town :D

What's the build button??? It just looks like a square.... and "O" doesn't work.

Never mind I figured it out - would be good to get a quick explanation at the start.
Love the game though! Super cute and fun. I don't really understand how it works. The cats keep disappearing and I don't know why. 
But still, very cool game.



What a terrific gem of a game!  An addictive city management game without the stress.  Well done!


How exactly do you download it for Android? All I'm getting is a couple files that I can only read

Either you open the .html file in a browser, or, the simple solution, just press the play button on the top of this page :)

I've just been pressing the play button at the top lol thank you though. I wish there was a way to save progress...this game deserves more recognition!


This is the equivalent of curling up in bed with a good book. It's so cozy and warm feeling without the stress of any goal or task. Really cute little game. I'd love to see more added to this (like making and covering streams), but this was a an absolute joy to play.


Lovely game! :)

love it, unfortunately there is no save function or any updates 

E.g. walls, stacking buildings on each other or even more islands (better if randomly generated). 

These functions would satisfy the people who play this game including me but most importantly make the game replay able and would even make you proud of your work, well done :)

I would play this game more if it had a save function


10mn later, i have double the crop production. and the fish prod. x)

out of this view, 10 tavern (for beer and prostitution ;) and 8 church, to confesse prodistitution...

dude are happy x)




Love this, but it is such a shame that there is no save function </3 <3 

Any cheat codes for extra resource drops c; wink wink c; ? xD <3



i made a prison yard too, sadly no villagers will spawn in it :(


i present,

cool guy city, population: 24

(this isnt the whole town, I couldnt fit it on screen)

i present Oregano Town

i think so to


maybe add some house variants? when you build a ton of houses it kinda looks bland



I agree

maybe bigger houses as well
