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!

I'm 37 and loved it, and I think this game is great for people of all ages who enjoy stories and making choices. The only things that could be better are the background music (gets tiresome over time) and it would be great if more languages were available, so more people could play the game.

One silly choose-your-own-adventure game, with some nice, if repetitive music, great cartoony artwork, lots of choices, and which doesn't take ages to play. Kids 7+ will love it, and I had some fun myself, even though I'm 65+.

It's adorable, and I dig the choose-your-own-adventure structure. There's not a ton of difficulty, and most of the challenge seems to be in managing to unlock all the various endings. If replaying for the various endings is your thing, I expect the game would take... what, at least 8 hours? Probably more.

I have played this game once and I ended up being a kind monster.
It's fun that you can affect what kind of monster you want to be. Your story starts as a little innocent monster and your actions will affect to your personality while your growing up.
There's 14 different types/endings that you can achieve, you just need to think carefully what to say or do in every situation.
So if you like choice based game which affects to the sory line this game is for you. The game is about 1h long (one play through).
Style is cute and also the soundtrack is very nice.
Maybe the only one minus in the game is that there's so much text to read and you can't really interact with anything and it might get boring in a while. Otherwise I really enjoyed playing it.
Soon I'm going to play it again, let's see what kind of monster I'm going to turn out then!

(Cried when my mosnter died at the end T.T).

8/10

+ Simple mechanics with multiple ending variations
+ Takes ~15 minutes to complete an "adventure path"
- The game mechanic is so simple, that it is a soddin' Excel sheet with multiple choice questions.
- I mean really, you're given choices like "Roar at cat" [+1 ferocity], "Pet cat" [+1 kindness], "Educate cat about neo-cubism" [+1 imagination].
- Yeah. That is really how the whole game works. Pick an option that adjusts some of your stats and redo from start.
- I mean, my old Choose Your Own Adventure-comic book for kids around 8 was more non-linear.
- And more complex, now that I think of it.
- Oh yeah, it also had a random element to it, not sure if this thing has one...

Conclusion: Do you like grinding menu options and making a list of every possible selection path? If you do, this is the perfect excuse for you to write some finer spreadsheet macros!
