A downloadable game for Windows

Wishlist Bug Fables on Steam!

Our Indiegogo campaign is over, but we've opened preorders here! If you enjoyed the demo, come hang out in our discord server!

(If you downloaded a new version of a demo, save files are compatible! Just drag your saveX.dat file to the folder you downloaded the new demo version to!)

Follow Bee, Beetle, and Moth as they uncover the secrets of the Land of Bugaria!

The demo includes most of the game's prologue, plus some bonuses at the end that give you a taste of what will be in the final game!

Visit our development blog to get updates as we work on new stuff!

(Linux and Mac users: this game is compatible with WINE)
Note: The demo does not have Super Blocking, which will be present in the final game.

This is genuinely some pretty awesome stuff. I'm really looking forward to this game's release! One question, though. Any plans to possibly release this game on Mac in the future? 

Currently there are no plans for a mac release though it should be possible to play using a windows emulator like WINE.


I loved the demo. I want buy the complete version when launch!


This game is the best! It's the best paper game I've ever played on my computer.

A beautiful game that wear it's obvious inspiration on it's sleeve.


It's one cute rpg game. I really love the artstyle and, the dialog is pretty funny!

Beat the demo and it's very much like Paper Mario in a good way! Had a blast playing the demo and it's a really cool touch to add in bonus side quests once you beat the prologue. 


Solo para decirles que buen trabajo me gusto les deseo lo mejor :D


Can't wait to try... i've been watching with a curious eye for a few months now ! Good job to everyone at the team ! ♥
