Über dieses Spiel

Leben Sie das Leben eines Monsters, von der Geburt bis zur Weisheit des Alters und darüber hinaus. Treffen Sie Entscheidungen, die die Welt der Monster und Menschen beeinflussen.

Sie wohnen im Dorf Omen und Ihr Lieblings-Snack sind die Finger von kleinen Kindern. Als Monster gelangen Sie an die interessantesten Plätze. Was tun Sie, wenn drei wütende Bären ein kleines Kind in ihrem Haus entdecken? Oder wenn Sie den bösen Wolf erwischen, wie er dem Rotkäppchen auflauert?

Als aufwachsendes Monster sind Ihre Entscheidungen einfach. Jagen Sie diese armen kleinen Mäuse (+1 Wildheit) oder schützen sie vor den Hunden (+1 Güte)? Verpetzen Sie Ihre Freunde, die einen Pilz gegessen haben (+1 Ehrbarkeit), oder decken Sie ihnen den Rücken (+1 Tapferkeit)? Als Heranwachsender bestimmen Ihre Entscheidungen Ihre Persönlichkeit.

Aber alle Kleinen müssen aufwachsen. Monster und Menschen sind seit Jahrhunderten zerstritten und es gibt Menschendörfer auf der anderen Seite des verzauberten Waldes. Wenn Menschenkinder sich in diesen dunklen und verwinkelten Dickicht verirren, terrorisieren Sie sie zum Spaß (+1 Wildheit)? Oder helfen Sie ihnen wieder in die menschliche Zivilisation zurück zu finden, um zu beweisen, dass nicht alle Monster zum Fürchten und Hassen (+1 Güte) sind? Oder mästen Sie sie für Menschenstopfleber - eine Monsterdelikatesse? Allerdings führt dies zu zunehmenden Spannungen zwischen Monstern und der Menschheit.

Hauptmerkmale:

  • Wägen Sie Tapferkeit, Cleverness, Wildheit, Ehrlichkeit, Freundlichkeit und Respekt ab, um Macht auszuüben.
  • Treffen Sie mehr als 900 Entscheidungen. Fressen Sie das Rotkäppchen. Verschlingen Sie Hänsel und Gretel. Verspeisen Sie die drei kleinen Schweinchen.
  • Erleben Sie Dutzende mögliche Abenteuer mit immer neuen Verläufen der Geschichte.
  • Bonus: Werden Sie ein Neurochirurg, ohne medizinische Ausbildung. Das ist doch was!

Astranon's Review of Monster Loves You!:
A game of the "Choose Your Own Adventure" genre, Monster Loves You! allows the player to assume the role of a monster from the time it is born until it returns to the slime from whence it came. The story of a monster's life changes (somewhat) based on the player's decisions. The artwork is very well done, and the soundtrack isn't too bad either. When you're tired of playing games that require you to hack and slash your way to victory, this one can come across as a pleasant departure from the norm...assuming you have never played it before.

Don't get me wrong. There is nothing inherently wrong with playing a "Choose Your Own Adventure" game. The problem, however, is that Monster Loves You! is less of a game than it is a book. And people don't play books. They read them. There is no opening or ending sequence. There are no animations (save for a few static pictures being popped onto the screen or a pair of dice being moved across it). You don't actually get to see the situations you are confronted with as a monster (yes, there is background artwork, but it has little or nothing to do with the events that occur). You don't even know what the monster you are raising looks like. In short, there is nothing to justify why Monster Loves You! should not exist on paper instead of in the Steam Store.

OK, so Monster Loves You! doesn't have much going on visually. But what about the game mechanics? Well, your monster has five different attributes: Bravery, Cleverness, Ferocity, Honesty, and Kindness. Each decision the player makes can either increase or decrease them. At times, there is no effect at all on attributes. Some decisions require a high amount of a certain attribute to be successful. The problem here is that there is no variation whatsoever in how the game adds to or takes from a monster's attributes. In other words, it doesn't matter whether you are trying to play the game as a "good" monster or a "bad" monster. The same choice that resulted in +5 Kindness for your first monster (who may have eaten humans) will have the same result as for your second monster (who only ever ran from humans). Does the way in which you play the game with one monster influence the next time you play? The answer is no. The exact same choices that were presented to you the first time you played will be presented the next time you play. The lack of change due to past choices is odd, considering the game tells you that "You are born from the slime that holds the memory of monsters."

Monster Loves You! does well as a story but not so much as a game. I do not recommend this game.

An interesting text-based choose your own story. Only, the outcome isn't always obvious and sometimes the result of your choices leave you a little confused. But every run through the game takes only about 20 minutes so it's pretty easy to just try again and see what you get.
It's humorous with a good mix of cute and creepy, interesting enough to keep you entertained, and innocent enough to let your kids give it a shot. Over all worth the buy if you're grabbing it on sale.

To tell the truth, I was a little bias about this game at first. But then I played it for the first time and it left me happy for the end of the day. It's simple, it's cute, it will surely grab your attention. Monster Loves You reminded me a little of visual novels, but with a twist. Unlike in, say, TWAU or TWD, every choice you make affects the outcome.
I can honestly say that this game is one of the few in my library that I don't regret buying.

An overall good quality Choose Your Own Adventure-esque game. The game does require reading, so an adequate level of English and patience is required. It will require multiple playthroughs if you want to get all the achievements, which may become tedious if you do not have the patience to go through the same game multiple times. There are many choices which you can make within the game, which all eventually affects the type of ending you will get. If you enjoyed reading Choose Your Own Adventure books in your childhood, then you will certainly enjoy this game. If you didn't enjoy those books or you don't even know what I'm talking about, still buy this game because I guarantee you will enjoy it!

10/10

Monster Loves You is an adorable little experience where you play as a growing monster, making decisions and developing your personality. If you buy into the Story vs. Game debate it definantly lands more on the interactive story end. The choices you make give you points in certain attributes that are then tested at a handful of landmarks. While not necessarily a very flashy or unique game, I found myself repeatedly going back to discover new endings and storylets. Overall, if you aren't a fan of games like The Walking Dead or No One Has To Die you probably won't find too much enjoyment here, but if you're looking for whimsically cute interactive story, I'd definantly give this one a shot.

It was fun! ...For the first run or two.


Well that was upsetting. Monster Loves You! is a text, choose-your-own-adventure game where you start your life out as a newborn baby monster and you live your life up until your return to the slime vat pool or until you finish the game as an elder who transcended above death to decide what ulitimately happens between the humans and monsters when the inevitable conflict happens.

You have 5 personality traits, Bravery, Cleverness, Ferocity, Honesty, and Kindness. You gain and use your traits to your advantage in situations that require them. This would be awesome if there was actually more situations that required that. Because more or less everything you do it a sure thing. It's pretty obvious if you're going to lose something or gain something from most interactions. I'll continue that shortly.

You use these personality traits to your advantage to gain respect from other elders and monsters so you may be respected enough as an individual to transcend into becoming an elder on the day you are supposed to die. Then once you are an Elder, you must work to either build or sabotage human and monster relations in the coming days before the conflict of humans and monsters. It is this point I believe the story ends with the effort you put into this before the conflict.

Everything about this game was really cool except that this game doesn't vary or switch up the story at all. By my second playthrough I already knew pathes and things I needed to say to reap the most (xyz) out of that "adventure" So I could get my stats high or close to maxed out as possible while getting tons of respect from the elders. I was hoping that after each death it'd be like a new life with new characters and new adventures. But I kept seeing the same thing over and over again already and it got really tedious and simply not fun. It immediately became apparent that i'd just start grinding to get medals for achievements. I don't care so much about the medals. It's nice to see new endings. But that's not the point of a game like Monster Love You! or at least shouldn't be circled around what the ending is going to be. The meat and soul of the game which is the time spent in each life stage is where you're spending most and pretty much all over your time as opposed to the scripted age-transistion stages. It was like I had a really amazing, fan-friggin-tastic sandwich, and in two playthroughs I felt like I was eating the same sandwich for months. I was so sick of it.

Contining on that point is that you get really familiar with each adventure pretty easily, they're very distinct and memorable most of them. And the options listed make it very obvious which choice is going to get you the most points and the good stuff.
I was rolling honesty and kindness monster path and I knew the pathes so well and understood where I could get good chalk-free in two playthroughs I already knew where I could build ferocity without consequence. I had kindness and cleverness maxed, I had honesty about 86% up there and I had roughly 69% ferocity. I shouldn't be able to get my ferocity stat so high rolling honesty and kindness. Cleverness was just so easy to pick up. It made it super-easy to bend end game to my will because I had such high stats overall I could make the story anything I wanted it to be. Therefore there was really no reason to keep playing the game. Because in two playthroughs I could understand the routes I need to take to get the most (xyz) and how to get the medals and other things.

It as a really fun game my first two runs. After that, it just simply wasn't fun. Definitely wasn't worth the money I paid for it, I expected much more out of it after reading such nice reviews.

Also continuing, from what i've heard in the game, sounds like the game has only 3 soundtracks in it. And that's just a big no-no. The art directive is okay. They could've worked harder in a lot of areas, but whatever. The humor in this game is great. But it's not funny after you read it the first time.


Regardless, Monster Loves You! is a nice and funny and enjoyable game. But after the second playthrough or third, you realize you're just doing the same thing again and it's not fun. I was really hoping that my deaths in the game would have an influence on my next life (which I read this in a review, this was a lie or a fabrication of their beliefs of what's going on in the game) But it doesn't and that's when I realized I was going to just be doing the same thing over and over again.

Overall, this game wasn't worth the money I paid for it, I bought it for about 4 dollars and I personally just wouldn't really recommend it at all to be honest. As I said, it's fun and it's nice. But I personally think you should keep that money for something nicer that pops up on the steam store or in a steam sale that you'd rather grab.


Anyway, thank you for reading my review. I hope it helped you in your decision to purchase this game or not, have a good day.

This game is a choose your own adventure style game. The mechanics are simplistic and the story is cute.

However, the story presuming you progress to the elder stage will take you about 40 minutes. While a nice idea and enjoyable for the short time frame I can not recommend as the game simply asks you to replay it to get all the endings... Not worth the time.

Monster Loves you is a choose your own adventure style story.

The main backbone of the story follows your life, as a monster, from the moment you are born in the "spawning vat". As you progress through the story, at certain points in your life you are given adventures to go on. The choices you make in these adventures determine the course of your life, and the overall outcome of the story. There are a wide array of adventures available at each section.

You might think that this is simply a game for kids, but while kids will enjoy this, it does have some aspects where an adult might understand the more mature themes. It is worth noting however, that the overall playtime for the game is quite low, but trying to get the possible endings & exploring all of the available adventures will bump that time up somewhat.

The graphics in this game are very nice. Although they are not the most important part. That falls to the text. The story is written in a very nice way, that makes it easy to enage in.

The game is controlled via a mouse although if you can stream to or play the game on a tablet, it will work much better.

The music in this game is very nice. It's not too obtrusive and compliments the storylike nature of the game.

Something I do feel that this game would really benefit from is if there were some way of making user-generated adventures. After several play throughs, you will come accross all of the adventures and end up repeating yourself.

All in all, ths is a very nice choose your own adventure game which is definitely worth buying. Although, If you don't like reading, then don't buy the game.

So, I found this game today on the store because I received a coupon for it. With 75% off, I figured why not? I didn't pay much attention to the reviews and just gave it a go.

What you have here is a cute and charming choose your own adventure game, with pretty backgrounds and nice ambient music. However the entire gameplay consists of essentially multiple choice answers to various situations. You go through each stage of a monster's life, from being born, an adolesencent, an adult, and then you either dissolve and die or become an elder. When you're an elder you decide the fate of the monsters versus humans.

Depending on your choices you gain points in personality traits, which you need for other decisions later in the game. Based on your personality and your choices you can get one of 14 endings. An average play should take about 40 minutes, as it did with me.

It's a very charming little title, and if you know what you're getting, go ahead and buy it. But if you're looking for something beyond "click click click" for forty minutes, your attention is best placed elsewhere.

[Mixed Review]

You should only buy this game if you are really, really into multiple choice games. If not? It's just a long tedious, activity about getting every ending. I never felt any emotion toward the characters in the game. The humour was fairly funny though. If you enjoy reading text, and only reading text in a game, go ahead and buy it.

Monster Loves You is a really cute game that lasts just about twenty minutes from start to end full of clicking and choosing between good karma and bad karma in order to create a monster that will become benevolent or crazed. Not much thought needs to be put into playing this game so I would recommend it for younger kids or people interested in quickshot games.

I would say that this game is good for children in the 6 - 10 years age group. Younger kids could easily play game, since there is no skill involved other than some pretty heavy reading, and older kids would appreciate the humor. There are several different endings to get if you can stand navigating multiple choice menu after multiple choice menu. Sure are there a few different "adventures" in each level, but there's no interactivity with the environment.
