“Always Sometimes Monsters deals in chaos and quantum theories – in every second of our lives, we make choices that forever impact our timelines going forward, dictating whether we keep or lose friends, maintain a job or succeed in our goals. We are the masters of our destinies, Always Sometimes Monsters says – but we can't control other people's lives. That's where it gets tricky.”
4/5 – Joystiq

“It's an earnest look at life under tough economic pressure, at love when things don't go according to plan and at a creative career during its shittiest lows. It has a lot to say, and importantly, it speaks from the heart.”
8/10 – Polygon

“Always Sometimes Monsters isn't the first game to get clever with morality. It's not the first game that's had a few grey areas. It also isn't about either of those. It's about perspective. It's about empathy. It's about who we are and why we do what we do. That narrative is one of contradiction and hypocrisy, because that's what real people are about.”
9/10 – Eurogamer

Content Warning

Always Sometimes Monsters has content dealing with racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, mental health, sexual assault, child abuse, animal abuse, drug abuse, and suicide.

關於此遊戲



Out of money and out of luck you find yourself heart broken and on the verge of collapse. Your landlord's taken the key back, you can't finish your manuscript, and your beloved is marrying someone else. With no choice but to handle whatever life throws at you, you set out on the open road on a mission to win back the love of your life. The story from there is up to you. Can your life be salvaged, or are we always sometimes monsters?

Choice
A story-driven experience focusing on relationships and emotional bonds rather than traditional RPG combat and adventuring. Indecision is your enemy and empathy is your weapon in a quest to earn one last chance to win back the love of your life.

Circumstance
Choose from characters of different gender, race, and sexual preference and live through the common experiences and unique hardships of each based on your selection. NPCs may treat you differently based on your gender, race, or sexual preference opening and closing different paths along the way.

Consequence
Each playthrough is filled with a staggering number of diverging paths that can be discovered through both overt actions and subtle choices in conversation. The journey you experience will be tailored to your personal ethical compass as your decisions both conscious and subconscious change your fate.



Download the original Always Sometimes Monsters soundtrack by LASER DESTROYER TEAM featuring 15 remastered tracks from the game. Available on Bandcamp.

人性其實很矛盾,當你沒得選擇的時候,你多麼希望可以選擇;當你面臨選擇的時候,你多希望你不用選擇...

Always sometimes monsters,主題就是人在某些時刻會猶如怪物,一個因為人生不同的選擇,而造成各種互相影響的因果RPG。劇情總是在一些地方給予玩家選擇...但是你完全不曉得這些選擇到底會影響甚麼...甚至會完全出乎你意料之外!

這遊戲很有趣,雖然並非是完全自由,有預設了不少劇情與選項,但是也安排了很多相對應的抉擇給你;遊戲介紹就提到內容包含了各種社會議題,性愛、藥物、道德兩難等等,不過我沒想到遊玩起來的內容還真的挺...該怎麼形容,人生挫折、現實層面的殘酷、藥物濫用(夜店搖頭咖、藝人嗑藥)、各種你不知道究竟是對或錯的兩難抉擇,這讓遊戲更加的吸引人,感覺有趣的同時也令人深思。

Few games manage to tell such a breathtaking story with such admirable minimalism as Always Sometimes Monsters does. What’s even greater is you are in control of the story, and how the game will pan out. For me, calling this a game is an understatement of what it really is. Always Sometimes Monsters is a declaration about life, about how our choices are all we really have, and about how those choices, no matter how small, can reorient our life in ways that we can never predict. In life there is regrets, happiness, anger, wishfulness and countless other human feelings. Always Sometimes Monsters shows that while experiencing these feelings is inevitable, you will never be able to travel back and reshape your life with different choices, so you have to make the best of what you have and never sink into regret with the decisions you’ve made in life, or you will never be able to move forward in the unique journey that is your life. 10/10

Always Sometimes Monsters is far from perfect; there are glaring flaws to be seen. But for every misstep it makes there are moments that hit their intended mark so well it transcends any amount of mini-game drudgery that came before it. It oozes personality and that personality can often be found to be your own. It is at times absurd, mundane, funny, hopeless and mean, but always endearing. And sometimes it's brilliant.

I had been sick of saving the world, fighting zombies or shooting people in games. Always Sometimes Monsters featured a storyline where I was just an ordinary person trying to stay alive in this cruel world & to get back with my significant other. I definitely recomend.

Very interesting game if you enjoy the genre. It's completely worth it if you play through it til the end because there is a lot of content.

Great game with hard choices. One of the few times I've truly felt bad over a choice in a game.

I was hoping for meaningful choices with consequences, instead all my choices were liquified into a "score" that decided if I got the "happy" or "sad" ending.

If the game only had one ending, no matter what, it might have said something about choice narrative in games, or fate, or how sometimes in life no matter what you do it still ends badly. Instead, an arbitrary gameplay "point" counter decides if you get the "happy" ending, or the "sad" ending, which makes the "sad" ending feel the same as a "game over" screen, "you didn't get your points high enough." You can't even see this counter unless you check the info on your save-game, and even then the scores are not explained, just shown.

In short, the game is about supernatural karma. I.e. you helped an old lady cross a street and so you magically win the lottery that day. That was a disappointing realization.

For that reason I wouldn't recommend the game, but there are good points:
+Sometimes the characters feel really human, warts and all.
+Being able to pick male/female, straight/gay, black/white etc. is awesome.
+The feelings of poverty and struggle are painfully realistic.
+Choices you make can cause real introspection, about who you are as a person.

Sadly, the realistic characters you get attached to, your choice of male/female straight/gay black/white, your struggles through poverty and pain, and all your tough moral choices mean nothing except how they effect your score-counter that you can only see when in the save-game menu.

Crappy game. It's either broken or so obtuse it may as well be, to say nothing of the preachiness. A good chunk of my playime comes from minimizing the game and trying to find out where the ♥♥♥♥ I'm supposed to be going. Not in the cheaty, perfect game kind of way, just I got given a job then forgot what I was meant to be doing, so ♥♥♥♥ me apparently. No journal reminders or anything. You'll only ever find guides for the "perfect" ending on google, and using that would defeat the point of the game, so why bother?

This is like my dream game made real. Life, choices, decisions, grey areas, love, betrayal - all packed into one. With a few tweaks it would be a masterpiece!

I had so much fun with game! There were always different options and different out comes. I never knew what to expect. The olny dislike I have is, a couple times I'd get lost or confused, there was no real direction. But over all a great game!

This game takes concepts too tired for a 90's sitcom, and executes them in a more vanilla JRPG fasion than you could imagine, except there is no combat as of 60 percent completion. After the bet on the car race, I couldn't stand any more of the TV tropes and had to stop playing, before the game's uncanny resemblance to my life set in. Always Sometimes Monsters, a play on words for anyone who hasn't completed fourth grade, is definitely a unique exprience.

I was disappointed in how the creators had democratic liberal bias in many of the games decisions. Only worth playing through once.

From what I've played of it, Always sometimes monsters is a horribly written game which tries to address issues of race, sexual orientation, and gender and fumbles hilariously. It's really ♥♥♥♥ing bad, don't play it.

I've got very mixed feelings after playing out this game.
It feels like no matter how I would have played it, the lesson and the outcome at the end would have been the same.

The story is nice and surprising, I'll try to spare the spoilers here, but oh, what a disappointment.
Like others are pointing out, at some point in the game there is a part where you just are grinding over and over just to get a little further and that made the outcame so much more disappointing (I'm repeating myself there).

So here I should decide wether I should recommend you buying this thing or not.
Well, I'll say YES, but just a tiny Yes that you should hear only when this game has a decent sale on it, does that count ?

This is game about the story of trying to get back together with your patner but where the real narrative lie is in how you will go about doing this....
Choices will dictate the end.....
