“Thankfully BadLand Games and developers Fictiorama Studios have also made quite the interesting title involving voyeurism, surveillance, and curiosity due out in 2017.”

Pry into the Affairs of Others & Decide their Fate in Do Not Feed the Monkeys
Arriving on Steam in 2017
MADRID, Spain — Dec. 15, 2016 — BadLand Games and Fictiorama Studios are joining forces once again after the recent release of Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today (PS4 physical) to bring Do Not Feed the Monkeys to Steam in 2017.
A narrative-driven, voyeuristic experience, Do Not Feed the Monkeys will give you the chance to invade the privacy of strangers and witness their most intimate moments. Will you intercede in the name of justice, sabotage their dreams … or sit idly by while the world burns?
“We love working with Fictiorama Studios because they always offer wonderful, out-of-the-box ideas and gaming concepts,” comments Luis Quintans CEO of BadLand Games. “With Do Not Feed the Monkeys, we know that players will experience a game that will lead them to question their own moral compass.”
“The Primate Observation Club” is not a wildlife conservation society as the name would suggest. Rather, it’s a front for a shadowy group used to watch others through surveillance cameras and compromised webcams. Tired of your ramshackle apartment, dull existence and boring job, you’re accepted into the exclusive organization so you can pry into the privacy of the “caged monkeys” as they go about their lives…
Observe subjects by monitoring dozens of security cameras, investigating social networking profiles, combing through email messages, and reading important online documents. The club urges you to not interfere with those observed … but will you be able to resist? Will you help those you’re spying on, extort them, expose them — or will you follow instructions and just watch? Whatever you do (or don’t do) will have consequences.
“We all have a natural tendency to wonder about other people’s lives. Sometimes the best stories are kept secret … all in the name of privacy,” says Luis Oliván, producer at Fictiorama Studios. “It begs the question: Why miss out on life’s best experiences because they’re not your own? We’re trying our hand at an answer with Do Not Feed the Monkeys. Hope you enjoy the ride!”
