Management, meet the monsters!
X.D. Network, the company bringing To The Moon to the Nintendo Switch, invite adventurers to join the cutest safari yet with zoo management sim, Monster Safari!

Players raise adorable monsters and explore unknown continents to find new creatures, all in an effort to create the park of their dreams!
Make sure that the monsters are happy, well-fed, and most importantly, having a great time – if not, don’t be too surprised if a park-goer gets their arm chomped-off. These are monsters we’re talking about!
In Monster Safari, players are able to start off with either a preset zoo or a blank slate that they can sculpt into their ideal park. Hire employees to help maintain your grounds, but choose wisely, their actions can greatly affect the monster and attendee happiness!
Monster Safari is developed by SmallOne Studio, which is a newly formed game development team aspiring to present unfettered and humored concepts through their games! ‘Being able to nurture creatures that are considered as bosses in other games is already a humorous idea. We are intentionally taking a different route designing Monster Safari, which is combining cute features with monstrosity!’ says Xiao Yang Jiong, the producer of Monster Safari. The team has a tight-knit vision to bring exciting and light-hearted experiences to players across the world.
Monster Safari lets players nurture powerful bonds with the creatures of the park. Players can help their monsters by choosing their habitat, meal choices, and introducing them to select events — all in an effort to make them distinct. Tending to your monsters doesn’t end there as players will need to help them meet their perfect mate. Help your monsters find Mr./Mrs. Right to create future generations of adorable creatures. Cute baby monsters have unique stats and a skill inheriting system — choose the perfect Mama and Papa to give their sweet babies unique skills.

As players explore, they’ll also unlock new decor, shops, and special events to help grow their park and monsters in completely new ways! It’s up to the player to manage this, their workers, park-goers, and new exploratory missions all in a fine-tuned management system that brings depth to the cutesy first blush impression of Monster Safari.
The zoo is not just a place for the players to collect monsters, it’s also an active park where guests will be cruising around and sightseeing your monstrosity museum. Guests are customers and customers spend cash. The park’s business model simply wouldn’t work without their money!You’ll need to provide guests with restaurants, concession stands, souvenir shops, and even toilets to create a comfortable experience.
When the park meets certain conditions, special guests including VIPs, politicians, thieves, and poachers will make an appearance. You’ll need to take special care of these guests and aid (or not) their survival. Surprisingly, getting eaten by monsters is not a strange thing at all in Monster Safari.
