Earlier this week, Beetles, Ants and Mealybugs were released in the first installment of Venu’s Garden – a series of Creature Quests (DoN’s Story Mode).
Here’s the preview video:
And here’s a full walkthrough!
Be sure to get your name up on the leaderboard for the new Beetle mission!
Along with in-game tutorials for all creatures, some other interesting updates (ahem ahem!) are headed DoN’s way in the coming days, so be sure to follow DoN’s Community Hub on Steam or DoN’s Youtube Channel to stay on top of everything Drunk On Nectar!
With the ongoing focus on gameplay, a new leaderboard map “Lady Love” has been released.
Here’s an overview narrated personally by me!

To celebrate this release a Leaderboard Contest is underway with nifty prizes to be won. The contest will conclude on 10th of April 2017 so be sure to check out this Steam announcement for more details and the list of prizes!
The current contest leader is Steam user “NuclearMedic” so if you want to beat Medic’s score of 1:15 (as of now!) put your jumping boots on, check out the new map and get your name up there on the leaderboard 🙂
More “Creature Quests” are headed your way in the days to come!
Celebrations reign! Trumpets blare! It has been done!
The Monarch Butterfly’s lifecycle has now been successfully depicted in DoN making it perhaps the first game ever to depict an animal’s lifecycle in full 3D, at full scale, from birth as a tiny egg to larva, to pupa and to adult, no compromises!
Check out the very special Monarch Metamorphosis Trailer below!
Download the latest patch on Steam and experience the Monarch’s lifecycle for yourself!
Please spread the word about DoN by sharing this video on social media; subreddits, your favorite forums, anywhere! DoN’s dazzling Monarchs and their great sport deserves to be seen by a much larger audience, so let us make that happen!
DoN’s number one priority now is to promote the Monarch Metamorphosis update; to that end, a sustained marketing campaign will be executed over several weeks to help the twin-winged butterflies of Drunk On Nectar encircle the entire globe with their mighty wings!
A million Monarchs dance,
Clad in bright orange robes.
Beating millions of mighty wings,
They shall encircle all the Worlds!
Beauty, Born, from a mighty Spring,
Beauty, Joy, Forever, brings,
Spiralling In, Spiralling out, Reaching wide and far,
Reaching every corner, Of every globe and Star!
May the Monarchs usher new life into Drunk On Nectar’s Worlds!
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!
DoN’s Steam Early-Access Journey:
It’s been a while since the last post; as you can imagine, building Drunk On Nectar full-time while managing its Steam presence has left little time for the blog posts and dev diaries of yore.
However, a number of articles, announcements and updates have been periodically released on Steam, IndieDb and Youtube so if you’re curious to know how the journey has been so far, here’s a list of fun articles for you to read 🙂
