Alien Petshop

Created by Ogre Crossing Games

The Kickstarter campaign is over and games have shipped to backers, but you can still bring these cute and mildly dangerous pets in your home! Manage your dice workers and the chaos in this light engine builder.

Latest Updates from Our Project:

The force is with us! Wait. Can I say that?? Live long and pros.... err. WE UNLOCKED UPGRADED CARDS AND BOARDS!

Thank you SO much for jumping onboard this spaceship to the galactic pet market!  We have unlocked linen finish cards  and thicker shop boards. If you haven't played a game with linen finish, those cards feel so good and look great! The game most people have played with linen finish is Exploding Kittens.  Our pets most certainly do NOT explode.  But they may eat your workers....

 I can't wait to see and feel how the cards and boards turn out with this high production quality!

The final stretch goal is for a plastic insert. With all the dice, tokens, and cards we have in Alien Petshop, a plastic organizer will really help with game setup. The GIF below shows what the insert might look like, and if we unlock this goal we'll aim to get something similar to this! 

Onto old business, if you haven't voted on your favorite pet design for the unlocked stretch goal pets, please let your voice be heard! Here are the pets again in case you missed them:

Once again, thank you Alien Petshoppers!

Best regards,


Stretch goal reached!! More pets have been unlocked!!!! Vote on your favorite!!!

That was a lot of !!!!! 

We continue to discover new and exciting species of alien critters for our petshops. Thank you all for your support!

That means its time to vote on the next pet design. Although 2 pets have been unlocked, one of these I will keep SECRET for now.  For the other, here are some sketches. Vote for your favorite!

The card on the right shows us what the in-game qualities will be.  It is a SUPER-PET!! It is DANGEROUS!! And it is a water pet. Some of these sketches don't look dangerous, but maybe you don't care. 8)

If you have a name for the pet you vote for, please share it!

PS: One of the previous sketches I shared will replace a piece of art on a current card. The old Norelca art just triggered a little too much trypophobia. 

Best regards,


Check out our new pet, the Glume!

Hello Petshoppers!

We are 8 days away from finishing this campaign!  Hopefully we'll unlock more stretch goals to make your game even better!

After the campaign, I will be using a Pledge Manager. This is where you can enter in your address and even purchase additional copies of the game if you wish.

Onto the new pet!!

I wanted to introduce you to our newest pet thanks to meeting the $9k stretch goal.

That finishes the 3 new pets! Thank you everyone for the ideas and feedback!

I am 99% certain we'll unlock the 2 new pets at $13k. We can do it! So, I'll send out sketches for those soon!    

Best regards,


Lots of mini-updates!

Thanks to your generosity and support, we have reached our second stretch goal, scenario cards!!

I love these cards because they add more replayability and make Alien Petshop a little more challenging.

Think of them as episodes for your favorite sci-fi show. 

The image below shows how they work:

These have been tested for months now, and I am excited to add them to the game!!

Here is one of my favorite scenario cards:

If you want to see them action, watch this playtest in Tabletop Simulator: 

 Next up, a few more pet cards!! 

Speaking of pets, please comment 'A or 'B' to vote for which color scheme you like for the new pet, and what shall we name this critter?

Thanks Petshoppers!
