Earthtongue has been Greenlit!
Earthtongue is at PAX South!
Buy Earthtongue Right Now![]

A sunless world of fungi and bugs, sustained by a slow rain of nutritious substance, could use your guidance and cataloging.

EarthTongue is a vivarium sim that places in you limited control over a small ecosystem on a fantastical world. You will spend most of your time watching life grow and eat each other to survive.


* Care for a miniature ecosystem, watch as mold grows to sustain the bugs, who may sustain further predators
* Exert limited influence with Interventions, introducing new species into the world or affecting the weather
* Your world is mostly self sustaining and merely asks you to watch over it, using subtle nudges to maintain the balance.
* Catalog the diverse forms of life in the Research Journal, unlocking entries when you have properly learned about different species or phenomena

In many ways, Earthtongue can be thought of a virtual pet, but with a network of life instead of a single organism.
