A downloadable game for Windows

This game is still in development. 

New October Build now available!

Kobold Garden is a virtual pet and RPG game where you raise a village of small lizard people called Kobolds! Explore surrounding wilderness for resources and fend off invading predators and neighboring factions!

This is the first playable Pre-Alpha of the game and is buggy and unoptimized. There is no gameplay currently, you only run around and pet Kobolds on a basic level. This is intended to give a general impression and does not represent the final game. Everything is subject to change.

A DX11 capable graphics card is required and a medium to high tier PC is recommended. Older PCs and laptops will have a hard time running this game if at all. There will be new versions monthly, building on and optimizing the game to broaden the scope of platforms it can run on including Linux and Mac eventually.

Controls

  • WASD: move
  • Shift: Run
  • LMB: Carry
  • Escape: Paus


    Controllers are currently not supported.

    i LOVE kobolds, this game made me love them even more, Kobold Garden is a fantastic game and your doing a great job developing it, even though my pc is trash and its dying trying to run it, i love playing this amazing game. right now its been about five months since the last update, i hope you havent given up on this great project. i cant wait to see the finished product, and i would love to see a steam release.

    I downloaded and played the game a long time ago, just came back randomly to see if there were any updated. Its awesome, would 100% roll across the map at 80mph holding kobold.

    I really like this game, it's super cute, the Kobolds walking around in the world, your own customizable ones and the tiny ones. Character design on point. Very adorable! Unfortunately my laptop can't handle even the lowest settings with more than 7FPS :(
    I'll definitely keep an eye out for this game and future updates though!

    Okay this is so mega cute.  I just run around, carrying my favorite kobolds to the water or with me on adventures.  It's so simple right now and I am not sure if it halted progress or stopped or something, but I would absolutely adore seeing the cute little demo update a bit with just something.  Some adorable houses would be amazing.  I just, there's something so relaxing about being able to monitor the crawling little babies, take off with your special kobold you made with the silly gacha thing and explore, or just watch that one one you decided has a silly personality lay down for a nap in the sun.  Pure joy.

    Unfortunately it seems that the menu's are breaking when at 1080p in windowed mode, at least for me they did, but not so much that they were completely unusable, luckily.

    I found the game beautiful and with a cool idea but it needs to be optimized

    can you please tell me the minimum requiriments for this game? 

    The camera controls need work. 

    The kobolds are cute, though.

    very much this, the mouse sensitivity is way too high for me

    Best game ever.

    The style is adorable and I can see a lot of potential for this game. I wish you the best of luck and can't wait to see what's in store as the game develops :) 

    What program do you guys use to open this? It won't open for me.

    I used peszip http://www.peazip.org to extract the .rar then opened the .exe

    7zip did the job for me

    Will we get kobold stacking at some point? :o

    Just played around, a fun glitch I found - by rapidly alternating petting and picking up a kobold, you can gain height, as the petting animation pulls you up and then locks you in place. You then lift them up again, giving them height, before petting to pull yourself up to them. Using this method, I created a kobold tree, where I deposited all the kobolds on top of one of the palm trees. Well, most of them - you run the risk of losing a kobold when doing this, as they don't seem to fall properly and will just sit in the sky where you leave them.

    Just ran it and wanted to leave some info in the hopes that it'll help developement.

    -Found that while picking up a kobold, I can move through world geometry.

    -Found that I can place kobolds inside geometry and pull them out.

    -Game ran fine on my pretty good computer, if that metric helps any

    Very nice game! Instantly reminded me of Chaos Garden on the Sonic Adventure games, too bad SEGA did nothing out of that unique function. One thing i can say is that mouse sentivity is uber high, at least on my end going with the lowest DPI possible on the mouse it still is insanely fast. Keep up the good work.

    Very cute! I'll be keeping an eye on the project for further updates.

    Just a headsup but the file download is spitting out a corrupted, UnOpenable .RAR right now. (2018, 03, 22)


    EDIT: I thought it was the file as I downloaded it 7 times and WinRar insisted it was "Unrecognized format or corrupt" but 7zip apparently opened it just fine. My bad. (Guess my WinRar needs Kobold Luvvins)

    I can't open it as an archive with 7zip apparently.

    Just played a bit of the game, wow. Great Work. The mouse sensitivity was a bit high, even right off the bat. Great Game so far.

    it reminds me to the chaos garden from sonic adventure 2. its a really beautiful progress, this game has a bright future.

    That's exactly why i decided to support this game, it's cute, has a great end goal, and has a bit of that nostalgia factor to it.
