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.

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)

Hey that was really charming. It was great as is, but it was so fun I wanted more. Larger map, biomes, different crops... Also, I couldn't tell what happiness affected.

(+1)

Glad you enjoyed it! It is just a pico-8 game, so the tiny size of it all was a given. Though since many more people like it than I ever thought, I might work on a "proper" version of it at some point! :)

Happiness affects if peeple join or leave the village! Should've made this clearer, you're right.

(+1)

I would love to see "proper" version. You did a great job here :D

Estaría bien poder guardar tus mundos

nice, but windmills need to stack the effect of auto harvest crops, once you get 20+ people you start to have to manually harvest often or they run out of food

Is it possible to play this as a apk instead of online browser

Really nice game!

I LOVE IT

Wow, I had 500 of everything and happiness on 100 but I couldn't make the villagers go above 15, I thiught it was by design.

(+1)

I finished the game. (Couldn't be bothered to wait for pop to grow to max)

(+2)

is there a save option, i am using the linux edition and i didnt find a save button/anything similar

(+1)

Due to the constraints of pico-8, unfortunately not. I wrote about it in some detail in the pico-8 BBS post, if you're interested. I hope you still enjoy the game! :)

(+1)
