A truly original game that fans of graphic adventures, investigation and social discourse will love. Watch out: like watching the "cages", once you start playing it's difficult to sop.

Do not feed the monkeys is a colourful voyeuristic journey into shady organisations and oddball characters. Some of its systems aren't particularly well explained, but discovering a new nugget of information about a weird old man makes it all worthwhile.

The Primate Observation Club has you watching monkeys as you struggle to pay for more cages while taking care of yourself. The balance between time and money is consistently engaging. The subject's lives are yours to watch. There is just one key rule: Do not feed the monkeys.

Do Not Feed The Monkeys isn't a perfect game by any means, and its minor interface and design hiccups are unfortunate. Thankfully, these small irritations do not serve to massively undermine what Fictiorama Studios has achieved here; the capacity for indie developers to come up with novel ideas never ceases to impress, and this is a doozy of a concept. Weaving together the "monkeys'" stories is rewarding and satisfying, and there's an impressive sense of foreboding to the whole thing. You'll play Do Not Feed The Monkeys through to the end more than once, believe us.

Revealing itself through multiple playthroughs, Do Not Feed the Monkeys gets wilder every time, and has a ridiculous number of outcomes waiting to be discovered. Expect to spend hours glued to the screen, as you're driven by a compulsion to see these stories through to their many hilarious or devastating conclusions.

Offering a short but unique premise, Do Not Feed The Monkeys grabs the player's attention but botches it with conflicting mechanics that replicates too much with the mundane tasks it aims to satirise.

Do Not Feed the Monkeys is a unique point and click game about joining a mysterious club to watch cages (surveillance cameras) and reporting on them while managing their time and resources and making decisions how to deal with the club's demands. Do Not Feed the Monkeys wasn't as impactful as I thought it would be for such a strange concept, but we appreciate bringing something fresh and exciting for the players.
