Features of Do Not Feed the Monkeys:
“The Primate Observation Club” is not a wildlife conservation society as the name would suggest. It is a front for a shadowy group used to watch others through surveillance cameras and compromised webcams. Tired of your ramshackle apartment, dull existence and boring jobs, you’re accepted into the exclusive organization, so you can pry into the privacy of the “caged monkeys” as they go about their lives…
The Club urges you to not interfere with those observed, though you need to progress in it to access the mythical “Big Primate Cage”. But… will you resist? Will you help those you’re spying on, extort them, expose them, or will you follow instructions and just watch?
Whatever you decide to do, or not do, there will be consequences!
With “Do Not Feed the Monkeys”, Fictiorama Studios approaches a relevant, controversial, newsworthy issue: our natural tendency to snooping vs. the moral limits and the right to privacy.

In fact, one of Fictiorama’s source of inspiration are websites like www.insecam.org and apps like LiveCams Pro, that share the streams of hundreds of unprotected surveillance cameras worldwide, placed in malls, nature backgrounds, warehouses, libraries… and even homes!
To make the gameplay more intense and immersive, Fictiorama added some moral elements and resources management mechanics, so that players can approach gameplay through several ways:
Thus, “Do Not Feed the Monkeys” mixes different mechanics, “Rear Window” meets “The Life of Others” meets “Papers Please”
