Vilmonic [itch.io, Steam] is another late night discovery, this time thanks to the itch store. It has a free and a paid version, so there's nothing stopping you taking a look.

It may not look like much, but wow this game is actually really damn cool.
You can mine, craft, build yourself a house and all the standard things you would expect in a sandbox experience. What makes Vilmonic different are the creatures themselves, since you are the caretaker of this world.
You can farm different forms of food, which seems to alter the animals and how they breed which is pretty cool.
It amused me too, as it tells you to build some flooring as it's teaching the basics, but the problem is some of the life-forms are attracted by a nice floor. They will even fight over it.
It's early days for the game, but it does show some real promise. I am looking forward to seeing how this game evolves over its development.
It's simple enough for a younger audience and interesting enough for adults too.
