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!

Monster Loves You! is a nicely created game with cute monster artwork. You create your own story by making choices in the game. You're born as a monster and the choices you ultimately decide generates what personality and appearance that you will develop as you go along with situations that happen in the game. ♥
You can choose to be friendly or ferocious, honest and kind, or clever, you could be a brave monster or afraid of anything that moves! ♥
The gameplay can be repetitive, but nice if you enjoy collecting stories or replaying for different outcomes.
Overall I thought this was a charming game to play to relax and has a lot of amusing text to read as you create your own outcomes and story. ♥
If you like cartoons and decision making platform games that are not too complicated and you enjoy creating your own story outcomes, you will love Monster Loves You! and Monster Loves You! will Love You! too. :] ♥

Monster Loves You! is a casual, text based, Create-Your-Own adventure game.

You are a monster, living in a monster town. You begin as a tiny monsterling, and grow as the game progresses. Through childhood, into adulthood, and possibly even as a monster elder, you must make choices. Each choice alters your monster in some way, and lead up to several different endings based on how you choose to play. The writing is humorous at times, with you having to decide between truth or lies, fight or flight, and occasionally whether to help someone out...or just eat them and be done with it. The art style is something out of a toddler's story book, which fits surprisingly well with the game's design; and the story itself isn't very long, which makes it a great time filler.

The game is simple, easy to pick up, and family friendly. However if you don't enjoy point and click games, or the Create-Your-Own adventure style, then this probably isn't the game for you. Overall I enjoyed the time I spent on it, and can see me coming back to it to kill time.

One of those choose-your-own adventure games simliar to The Yawhg. The lack of emotional depth, mysteries, or twists in the narratives however, make this game just an exercise in collecting endings.

Really super cute "choose your own adventure" kind of game!! It offers a variety of goals that you should aim for on each of the different playthroughs! It has the same basic storyline (you're born, you grow up, you're an adult, you die), but because you get to choose which scenarios you want to partake in in each stage of your life, it adds to the replayability.

This game does provide to me an admiration. First, this game is a simple and cute. Colorful backgrounds and harmonious soundtrack made a relaxed atmosphere. Definitely, I am starting become to insane after hundreds repeating the same melody (more than twenty hours had played).
Second, game contains a several idioms and many kinds of synonyms, what was helpful to improve my English vocabulary. I have been started learning English only last few months, but this game was a comfortable ground to do it.
And last, I recommended this game for all who had same aims as me (expanding vocabulary). Other way, this game might be more interesting for kids instead of adults.
Anyway, my greetings to developers for their work!

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.

Cute and entertaining click-through story/choice game, if you get it for 1-3 dollars.

This is a ridicoulouse amount for the asking price, i got it for roughly $3.50 with a coupon and i still feel like it wasn't worth it. Not a bad game just way to short, takes 2 hours to beat it and the achievments broke for me as well so there's no reason for me to ever play it again. Unless achievments get fixed. I had to force myself to keep playing on my 2nd try and there's no way im going to be playing for a third. It doesn't have much depth either. The only way chosing different choices effects you is by percentages of respect and other stats you acquired which in the end just basically decide what choices you CAN make (Without high chance of fail).
Overall 2/10 fun the first time but way to expensive considering.

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.

[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.

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

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.

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.
