What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The core game mechanics are fully working, and launching as Early Access allows you, the players, to shape any additional game modes, challenges and the final look-and-feel of the game. Over the next few months, we will gather feedback from the community and work with you to continuously improve and extend the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game is already functionally complete with a full release expected in early 2022.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Future updates will focus on multiplayer - in particular porting to other platforms for cross-platform play. Further work will also be done to tune performance and support a wider variety of lower-end PCs, together with tidying up and customising artwork and other assets.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Fully playable singleplayer campaign mode and freeplay. Initial multiplayer support included, but further work needed to field-harden it at scale and cross-platform.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price may rise as we ship new content and features. Purchasing now not only gets you the game at this current low price, but also allows you to shape and influence its future direction so the finished version is truly your game. This rewards the early players and the help they provide to make the game the best it can be.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Feedback is an essential part of the future success of Monstermonger. Please let us know your thoughts on the Steam discussion forums - we'll be checking every day and engaging with you to work through new ideas and content.

Some initial questions to get the ball rolling:
  • What were your favourite / least favourite moments?
  • What made you feel amazing?
  • Was there anything you wanted to do, but the game wouldn't let you?
  • If you could change any aspect of the experience, what would it be?

“Monstrous fun. Plays like 'Splendor' but with additional mechanics to give more strategic depth to your choice of moves.”
-- Mithrilmaker

“I had really good fun with this - it's got that 'easy to learn, hard to master' feel...as I found out when I went from the tutorial to the hard AI and got schooled :-)”
-- Steam reviewer

About This Game

Welcome to the unexplored Realms of Dragoris. Part hunter, part trader, Monstermongers capture creatures and sell them to wealthy dungeon keepers to help them stock their lairs. Compete against others to recruit skilled villagers to build a team to capture them. Decide which monsters you want to sell, and which you want to tame to add to your team to help capture even bigger ones. Whoever gets the most gold wins!

Inspired by engine-building Euro-style board games, at the heart of Monstermonger is strategic choice. Sell what you capture to bank your gold now, or invest to gain more gold later? It's a careful balance, but one you'll need to master. Sell too much and you won't be strong enough to capture the monsters that fetch the highest prices - sell too little and your opponent will surely beat you...

Monstermonger is a strategic fantasy Digital Board Game. It plays similarly to award-winning real-life board games like "Splendor" and "Jaipur".

You collect resources (recruit villagers) which allow you to collect more resources (capture monsters), and build up a hand that can sell resources for victory points (gold) which determine the winner. The strategy and tactics are all in deciding which resources of what type to get, when to get them, and then deciding how and when to convert them into your winnings.

As with all good strategy games, the mechanics are straightforward. Learning how to apply them to outsmart your opponent is where the enjoyment and challenge lies!

  • Quick to learn, hard to master.
  • Compete in a solo campaign & freeplay, or local & online multiplayer.
  • Capture over 250 monsters across 8 fantasy realms
  • Outwit varied AI with different strategies to beat.
  • Gain ranks to become the ultimate Monstermonger!
