The latest species to arrive in DoN’s World is the lovely Monarch!
Start life as a tiny 1mm sized caterpillar wriggling out of an egg and grow, moult and metamorphose your way into an adult butterfly! Of course, the adult butterfly metamorphosis is only coming next week but you can go all the way up to being a mighty fifth-instar caterpillar for now 🙂
For those who haven’t purchased the game on Steam yet, here’s a gameplay overview.
Do consider buying the game to support DoN’s ongoing development!
