The Wandering Village, city-building game set atop a giant dinosaur, screenshot of the gameplay

In sheer defiance of the very concept of common sense, the humble townsfolk in The Wandering Village have decided that the best place to begin their life anew was atop a gigantic dinosaur casually stomping its way across the world. In order to ensure this venture doesn't end in disaster you'll need to grow and gather a variety of resources, send expeditions out into the wilderness in search of long-lost technology and other goodies, as well as figure out how to communicate and coexist with the colossal beast.

What all of this madness looks like in action, that you can get a pretty good impression of through the recently posted launch trailer. Have a gander, it's quite a charming one:

Before you get too excited, it's worth mentioning that The Wandering Village has only just entered Early Access and is thus still unfinished. This initial version brings with it the basic gameplay loop of building, farming, scavenging and researching, while future updates will expand the world and your options, add extra features like controller support, as well as polish everything up. All of this is expected to take at least one year, so do be prepared for a bit of a wait if you decide to jump in early.

You can learn more about The Wandering Village, as well as keep track of its updates moving forward, over at Steam. Enjoy!
