The Quirky Game About Alpacas You Didn’t Know You Needed…Until Now
Have you ever wondered what would happen if an alpaca gained the ability to absorb other alpaca? No?
Japanese developer Cocosola released Alpaca Evolution on mobile devices this year and, apparently, enough people are curious. It’s already been downloaded over five million times, and once I tried it for myself, I realized I really do want to know how an alpaca evolves. There’s not much to do, but the game is still addictive. Starting with a normal alpaca–aside from its ability to absorb others–you just tap on alpaca to knock them out, and tap again to absorb them. Eventually, your alpaca earns enough experience to evolve into various muscly-armed humanoids, multi-headed beasts, and other crimes against nature. I’m still finding myself pulling up the game every so often as more victims are generated, so I can see what monstrosity my alpaca will evolve into next.
If you’re curious now, you can download Alpaca Evolution for free on the App Store or Google Play.
