“Do Not Feed the Monkeys is our most ambitious project to date,” comments Alberto Oliván, Narrative Designer at Fictiorama Studios. “We have had total freedom when it comes to design the stories and the game’s mechanics and, as a result, the player will experience different situations and face different endings based on the decisions they take.”

What Some Members of the Press are Saying…

“Do Not Feed the Monkeys preys on the fear that drives people to put tape over their webcams. In it, you’re tapped into surveillance cameras that spy on different locations and people going about their lives.” Stephanie Chan, Venturebeat

“appears to blend some of the creepier elements of Watch Dogs with the strange meta-game of Five Nights at Freddy’s. Slathered with an early 1990s LucasArts graphics style.” Charlie Hall, Polygon

More About the Game

Do Not Feed the Monkeys is a “digital voyeur simulator” a story-driven title in which you invade the privacy of dozens of strangers while you witness their most intimate moments, trying to keep up with the rent payment and have enough money to buy some food from time to time…

You’ll be the new member of the “Primate Observation Club,” which of course is not the wildlife conservation society that the name suggests. It’s a cover for a clandestine group that watches over people through surveillance cameras and unprotected webcams. Tired of living in a shabby apartment and having boring jobs, you have been accepted as part of this exclusive organization, so you’ll be able to spy on the “caged monkeys.”

The game, which has strong “pixel art” visual style, allows you to browse social networks, wikis, websites, newspapers, online stores and chat rooms, where you can collect information about the “monkeys” you’re spying on. The Club forbids you from interacting with those you observe (i.e., “feed the monkeys”) … but what will you do? Are you going to intercede in the name of justice? Will you sabotage their dreams? Or will you sit around doing nothing while you watch the world burn? Everything you do (or stop doing) will have consequences.

What to Expect While Playing?!

  • MONITOR hacked surveillance cameras
  • PRY INTO the lives of dozens of subjects
  • INTERACT (or not!) with fun, sad, horrific, surprising, dramatic, or sci-fi themed narratives
  • DECIDE THE FATE of the subjects: will you help them? Will you expose their most intimate secrets?
  • BROWSE social networks profiles, wikis, websites, newspapers, online stores… Use chat logs, email tools and more!
  • MANAGE your resources: will you spend all your savings on buying more “cages”, or will pay rent? Are you healthy enough to work? How many sleepless nights can you stand before collapsing from exhaustion?
  • REPLAY to experience different climatic endings
