Story of Montas


You wake up at the desk of Joseph Walker, an accountant working for a firm in the city of Montas.

Normal life for Joseph has become a distant memory, haunted by nightmares of events that didn't happen, and cursed with unsettling hallucinations wherever he goes. As a result of stress and anxiety, Joseph is now an alcoholic.

Paranoia is growing, and the situation worsens when police begin to question locals about recent murders in the area. What is happening to Joseph?... and what is Montas hiding?

This game has been in Early Access for too long, devs don't seem to be implementing any new changes anytime soon. Very disappointing. FeelsBadMan.

Montas. It's a horror game that stayed 2 YEARS in Early Access.
We all know what that means. Game won't be finished(?).

I'm sorry devs.

Visually impressive, though I'm kind of bugged they don't update the game as often as promised. Cautious thumbs down for now, to give it a shove in the right direction, I guess?

Early Access Review
Montas is survival horror game that really focuses on immersing you with its atmosphere. As you explore the environments you can discover multiple paths that can lead you to hidden secrets and content. I was honestly paranoid and scared from the very start even when nothing had attacked me yet. Eventually you will come up against enemies that will chase you down Amnesia style and you must avoid them. This game is currently in early access so it's not a complete game and I did come across glitches and annoying level design flaws but that will be fixed during early access I'm sure. I really recommend trying Montas out for yourself if you enjoy horror games.

Montas has all the right ingredients to be a great horror game with a lot of exploration to do, platforming and puzzle solving.
As an early access game the developers did a very good job not to spoil the story much but it still gives you a lot to do in the game. The city is very much open with plenty of dark corners and secrets, you can go wherever you want, if you are not too afraid to go there...
The atmosphere is amazingly creepy, most of the time you have no idea of what's going on and what's real and what's not and if you are dreaming or awake and that makes you fear the game and trust nothing in the game.
Lighting is great, sound is also good, there are a few glitches some frame rate drops, some animations also need polishing but this is still a beta.

Have in mind that this is not the final product but if you are an horror fan you should at least try it.
