About This Game

Live the life of a Monster, from birth to elderhood and beyond, making decisions that affect the world of Monsters and Humans.

You live in the village of Omen, and your favorite snack is the fingers of small children. As a Monster, you pop up in the most interesting places — what do you do when three angry bears discover a young child in their cabin? Or when you spy a wolf hunting down that woman with the red cloak?

As a Monsterling, your choices are simple ones. Do you chase those poor little mice (+1 Ferocity) or protect them from the dogs (+1 Kindness)? Do you come clean about that fungus your friends ate (+1 Honesty) or cover for them (+1 Bravery)? As a youth, your choices determine your personality.

But all youngins must grow up. Monsters and Humans have been at odds for centuries, and there are Human villages on the other side of the enchanted woods. When Human children get lost in those dark and winding thickets, do you terrorize them for fun (+1 Ferocity)? Do you help return them to Human civilization to prove that not all Monsters are to be feared and hated (+1 Kindness)? Or do you fatten them up for Human foie gras — a Monster delicacy? All this, to the backdrop of increasing tensions between Monster- and Humankind.

Key features:

  • Balance Bravery, Cleverness, Ferocity, Honesty, Kindness, and Respect to wield political power.
  • Over 900 choices to make. Devour Little Red Riding Hood. Gobble up Hansel and Gretel. Eat the Three Little Pigs.
  • Encounter different adventures each time you play, with a dozen or so possible endings.
  • Bonus: Become a Neurosurgeon without having to attend medical school. That's value!

This game is cute and fun. I'm so glad I stumbled upon it. I would recommend buying it on sale, just because it is a shorter game, but it's well worth half it's normal price. There are multiple outcomes and the music and atmosphere make for a fun, enjoyable game to play.

There isn't an ESRB rating, so I like to provide ones that are as close as possible to the rating system as I can make it. This game hovers between an E10 and a Teen. Normally, I would say E10 for Fantasy Violence, but some of the scenarios in the game are Teen oriented (for example, a monster has the choice to leave a young child and baby to supposedly perish in a burning building, and a few other such scenarios). Everything else is very lighthearted- there are just a few more mature elements for younger players.

This game isn't for me. I don't like it, I thought it was going to be something different. But it was recommended to me by a friend so I bought it (in 2013).

I don't recommend it because I just didn't find anything about it fun or entertaining, personally. The limited customization didn't make up for the various outcomes in the story-line, and the story itself was just too dull for me. The challenges weren't challenging in the right way.

You make a little monster and answer questions that make up a story and your decisions affect the outcome. That's all I can tell you, because I only played it once YEARS ago and didn't get very far before I closed the game and never played it again. Most of my time was actually AFK.

At the time Steam didn't offer returns/refunds, so I uninstalled it and forgot about it. Now, however, I'm stuck with the game since the purchase was made so long ago (even though I have the less than 2 hours played requirement and the last date played is the same as the purchase date...sigh).

PLEASE UNDERSTAND I'm not saying this is a bad game; it has great reviews. But it's an ill fit for me, and one glance at my game library would tell you why. So if you're not sure about this game, do some research before purchasing and don't screw yourself out of a refund should you change your mind afterwards.

It's a cute game, if rather simplistic in its representation of good and evil, but then I'm definitely a sucker for the choose your own adventure storyline. The graphics are adorable, and none of the text blocks are too unwieldy. I'm not sure I would pay full price for it, but it's still a lot of fun.

Played it for like 20 minutes, reached 3rd, or 4th stage of monster growing and went for refund. WTF did I spent my money on? I stopped reading text after 1st stage of life! And I am a person that enjoys narrative concepts of the games. This one here is doing everything wrong.

If you plan to buy this game - don't! It is boring as hell, has meaningless choices, crappy interface, terrible soundtrack and ruined concept.
If you bought this game less than 2 weeks ago and not played it for more than 2 hours - refund it and get your money back, as I did.
If you bought this game and left it on your shelf then I feel for you.

It's humour; pure humour. If you don't enjoy games that are about making choices and seeing how those choices affect your character's development, as well as the world around you, then this game isn't for you. If you do, however, then this game will make you laugh.
After all, how often do you run into a game where you grow out of a vat like a amoeba, turn into something nature could only invent when it's drunk on whisky, and get Kindness-points when you feed your colleague an entire ant colony?

This games takes the old concept of allowing the reader (player) allowing to influence a story's outcome through interaction, and makes a computer-game out of it. Will you turn Kind, and work to increase understanding between monsters and humans? Or will you become Ferocious, and wage war until all the humans are dead?
...while discussing the philosophy of rocks, and feeding your fellow monsters entire ant colonies.

Monster loves you is a choose your own adventure game reminiscent of choice of games, however it has graphics.

The game is generally fun, and I am enjoying myself looking for the different endings.

I'm a lot into games that you just have to sit and enjoy the story without any stress. This is a game you won't stress over, you will just sit and enjoy the story you're creating. And the sense of accomplishment after giving my monster a full life made me happy in a very innocent way.

Unfortunately, the customization is poor, you can't name your monster and the game is too rushed, so you don't have time to get attatched to your monster.

But it was a nice experience for sure. I loved every second of it.

A really quick game to play but as it has multiple outcomes it will be a game I keep returning to, it requires very little concentration so it's a nice, easy game to chill out with.

The visuals of the game are cute, good colours and a clean, simple design.

It reminds me of "Long Live The Queen" in a way because the choices you make affect the outcome and give you trait points (kindness, bravery and ferocity for example) which will then further affect decisions you can make.

Recommend.

Adorable little indie casual game about the birth, life and death of a monster which you control by multiple choice visual novel dialogues. A little fun game.

Cute little story, with multiple endings, depending on what your actions are through out the story depends on what ending you will have. Throughout your life as a monster and the decisions u make depends on what your stats will be and u can use them (if they're good enough) in the future to win conversations or fights.

I think i should write at least a short thing about this game, because it truly deserves it =)

Its a kind of "Build your Adventure" story game in which you raise your own monsterling from birth to adulthood. It involves quite some good reading and humor. The game gives you lots of choices, like "save the monsterling - or eat it", which in progress develop your character and the storyline.

Besides the many small story bits, its not overly complex, but its very entertaining.

The Achievements are fun to hunt down and you will need to play through the game several times to get them all. Generally the game has plenty of replayability with its varied small stories, so that is not too much of an issue. I played it several times over and still find new ones. A playthrough shouldn't take more than an hour i guess, maybe less.

If i had to criticize something, then its probably that its not very long, but i guess that's the way the game was designed, its not meant to be a complex long thing, more something easy to play in between.

And i would have loved to be able to design the looks my own monsterling, sadly the game doesn't give that option, i think its random how your monster will look like.

Technically the game is solid, no bugs or anything that i would have to mention.
Also i totally dig the artstyle, but thats personal preference =)

It also has the best emoticons, so thanks for that.
( :hee::ooh::hmm::blech::grr: - they dont work in this Review post )

Conclusion: This is a very fun small charming game worth to be played =)

"Monster loves you" is a text based game, an interactive story both for adults who enjoy reading children's books and kids. It's a wonderful storyline with nice music and great humor (btw English here is quite difficult for those who have it as a second language). Monsters are odd and incredibly cute, they will melt your heart and make you smile during the whole game. You can play as one and choose your character, behavior and destiny. Welcome to the cutest monster-world ever! And remember - monster loves you!
