Embark on an incredible adventure on the back of Onbu, a giant wandering creature. «The Wandering Village» is a city building simulation game, taking place in a post-apocalyptic world.

The development of «The Wandering Village» began as a side project, while the team was still finishing their second game «Nimbatus ». It has now become the studio’s main focus for an estimated early access release at the end of 2021.

This successful campaign is not a first for Stray Fawn, as their previous titles, «Niche – a genetics survival game»  and «Nimbatus – The Space Drone Constructor», were both backed through Kickstarter. This achievement demonstrates once again the importance of community building, an essential element for which Stray Fawn and more particularly its co-founder Philomena Schwab have been advocating (see her GDC talk about the Power of the Pack). «The Wandering Village» has, for example, already reached 20’000 wishlists on Steam.

«The Wandering Village» was previously selected for the SwissGames Showcase 2020  and has been supported by the Spring 2020 Call for projects.
