You've unlocked Developers Grove!

–In-Game Congrats! Prompt.

The Developer's Grove, also called The Secret Village, is a location only unlockable by having deposited a total of 10,000 Rapo-Coins into the Wishing Well in Drawn to Life. In the Secret Village, some characters created by the game directors and developers are seen. When the characters are talked to, they will say some information or comments about the game. When this village is unlocked, the Hero will not be able to drop coins in the well ever again.

Most developers will talk about the creation or their part, and some give their opinion of the game. Some things said are inspirational, while others are just random blurbs.

Jeremiah Slaczka, one of the developers, asks the player if they have found the hidden flower in Shadow Lair to save the Mayor. This flower does not exist and is stated by Joseph Tringali, another developer, that the player should not pay attention to Jeremiah's quote. James Youngman later confirmed in a Tweet that Jeremiah inserted the quote as a prank to mislead the player.[1] However, In Two Realms the player is told to draw a flower next to the Mayor's statue. It is unknown however if this is an easter egg by 505 games refrencing the rumor from the first game.

Creation is the key to inspiration... and with the universal language of art, one can inspire all. For better or worse, the universe is ours to shape.

Zen management- be detached to be attached to what is really going on. For there is something in nothing and there is nothing in something. Wu!

I was gonna write something, but didn't want to upset the rating board.



  • In Jeff Luke's quote, the word victory is misspelled as "victoly".
    • It is unknown if this is intentional or not.
  • In David J. Franco's quote, he mentions a person named Molly Hymas. Hymas is credited as the voice of Mari - excluding the song The End, who was voiced by Hayley Chipman - along with a few other Raposa sound effects. She and Franco both voiced the Raposa sound bits.
  • Accessing the grove before the Mayor's death could potentially spoil what happens to him.
