About This Game

You are Dehon, the Great Disciple of the Caste of the 40 000 Moons. You have slain and devoured your brothers because they lacked courage in the face of the mysterious Evil that decimated your universe. Bravely fighting him in your fortress temple, you gradually lost your mind, and in a moment of lucidity you took your own life.
Your body and soul drifted through the spirals of time, going back to the origin of everything. When you woke up in the temple of Evil, you felt your hate towards this Evil hadn’t faded. You will have to follow an initiatory course that will lead you to confront this Evil, guided by your father and mentor Gommend. Will you really keep the promise you made to yourself?

To make it simple, Monster Challenge Circus is probably the game that depicts hell in the most convincing way :

-clunky camera control
-confusing spell selection
-unintuitive mission objectives
-oversimplistic combat system
-glitchy gameplay/cutscene transitions
-horrible use of film grain, if not the worst in video game history

As a demon that lust for revenge you must make your way through 4 levels that will take less than 1 hour to complete, even with trial and error.

To make things even worse, the story revolves around a father-son relationship that is strangely reminiscent of Freud's oedipus complex. How awkward could it get?

To be honest, it is quite disappointing that Monster Challenge Circus turned out as an unfinished product since it had some potential. Imagine a game like Sanity : Aiken's Artefact but with a Thrill Kill/Silent Hill twist. This is what the game could have been.

Here is the full playthrough :

REVIEW (UPDATED)(another update: see bottom for ultimate reason why you should not get this game)

This game is the afterbirth of all the games available on Steam. It is terrible on every single level. Bugs, glitches, goblin darts, they're all there.

Music is awful.
Voice acting is that of a Simlish Rammstein song.
Gameplay is poop.
Whoever thought the idea of adding a grain filter so deep you could cut through it was a terrible idea.
Game crashes galore.

This game is STILL on Steam Greenlight since January 2014, waiting to be greenlit. However it has now been published by Strategy First, who have released about a hundred OLD games on Steam within the past couple of months. No early access, no greenlighting procedure, etc. I then took a look at the Strategy First website, and there is absolutely no mention of DEHON Monster(s) Challenge Circus.

This is not an old game. This was started in 2010, and was just released yesterday (16/05/2014). Who the hell greenlit this? Who sat at a desk with three hundred other games and said "YEAH THIS IS OK TO RELEASE. GREENLIGHT IT"

I'm honestly not sure what FreeGamer's goal here is with this..... thing too. They certainly aren't a professional studio, that's for sure, with one post refering to their logo which is a crudely drawn GOAT, and connects this with the line of games they are associated with. WHO CARES! What matters is the GAMEPLAY!

In my initial review I forgot to mention that the game crashes every single time after dying, and choosing a game mode.
I also forgot to initially mention how ridiculously short this is, with four RIDICULOUSLY SHORT STORY MISSIONS and then 4 survival arenas. FreeGamer promised 3 to 4 hours of gameplay. That is crap.

UPDATE #2: I just downloaded the demo of this game that was made available on Gamershell. Already I could see that the file sizes were similar. However...aside from only two levels only being available for each game mode, and less than 1MB difference, the file contents of each of the versions IS THE SAME.
How the hell did you think you could get away with this?!

This is truly one of the weirdest thing on steam, don't expect anything remotely playable, even turning the camera is completely insane.

The base idea isn't even bad, it has a weird atmosphere and doesn't look too bad, but it's a real mess gameplay wise. Not even good for the lulz :(
