Monkeys & Dragons is an Indie Retro Adventure inspired by video game classics like Monkey Island, Indiana Jones or Simon the Sorcerer.


Jack and Lana just started their honeymoon, when Jack was kidnapped by a sorcerer who turned out to be Jack's ex-boyfriend. No one wants to help Lana to rescue her husband, so she decides to take matters into her own hands. On her rescue mission, she becomes an adventurer, completes quests and solves dangerous puzzles. However, there was something she wasn't prepared for...

Guild Hall


You play as Lana and you have to rescue her husband on a tropical island full of monsters and mysteries. The Early Access version launches with three chapters that end with an open ending. All players can make suggestions for the game's ending and vote for the ending that will be integrated into the game. So, you have the possibility to contribute how the shall end. Do you want a happy ending? A tragic one? Something complete different? It is your chance to contribute to the story!

Beta Update #2


I spent the last days with improving the current beta test version of Monkeys & Dragons. I want to thank all beta testers who sent me e-mails in the last days. The feedback was very positive and I thank you for all the ideas you sent me. Many suggestions are already part of this update.

If you want to get a free copy of Monkeys & Dragons to beta test it, your next chance is here on IndieDB!

Chapter 2 is going to be published next week.

New features

  • Added support for Steam Cloud
  • The quest journal lists all tasks you need to do for the current chapter.

Souvenir Shop


  • When advancing to a new chapter, the unlocked scenes are displayed.
  • The map in the Souvenir Shop now has the same Pixel Art style as the shop.
  • After using certain one-use objects in the world, they can now longer be examined or used.



  • There is a new option to use always white dialog texts. This is meant to support color blind people.


  • Dan gives now two rewards after completing his task. In case you played the game before this update, you will get the item before you need it. Don't worry!
  • When controls are locked during cutscenes, a proper text is displayed at the top of the screen.
  • Improved mouse behaviour when moving the mouse cursor over different types of discoverable objects.
  • The game version and copyright information in the main menu are now displayed larger and in Pixel Art style.
  • The game is now started in fullscreen by default.

Bug Fixes

  • A problem that could cause game crashes has been fixed.

  • It was possible to interrupt the sequence in which you defeat the spearmaster.
  • The interactions with the spearmaster looked odd with certain fullscreen resolutions.
  • Movement animations for the Beautiful Woman and the Monkey were wrong for certain fullscreen resolutions.
  • The overlay animations could be have the wrong size, if the screen resolution changed while playing the game.
  • It was possible to use a certain item combination twice, although it should only be possible once.
  • FIxed several typos
