4th Update

Hello, everyone!

We've uploaded the new version of 'Monads'. The major changes are as follows.

Rule & Balance
  • Increased some AI units' AP in lower difficulties to make them be able to cast skill.
  • Can't use skill with 'charge' effect, if there's a trap in the middle of the path.

Interface
  • Changed the name of Lucius' unique skill, from 'Cavalry' to 'Belief of Haskell'.

Graphic
  • Modified the backround image of title scene to feel like it's winter.
  • Changed background of portraits shown when activating a chain, to give a dynamic feeling.
  • Removed a small circle particle shown when you click.

Bug fix
  • Achievement 'Pyrrhic Victory' is not achieved with inaccurate condition anymore.
  • Now HP preview is calculated correctly when AI attacks.
  • Now cancelling a 'tactical attack' correctly restores the chance to get bonus AP.
  • Fixed a problem that the first battle wasn't loaded on a certain device setting.

Localization
  • All 'in a range of N tile(s) radius' in skill explanation texts have been changed into 'within radius N'.
  • Words when you put mouse over menu buttons 'Menu', 'Log', 'Glossary' is now displayed in English.

If you have any suggestion to our game, then please let us know via discussion page or email: epicmonads@gmail.com

We'll come back later with new version again.

Thank you.

About This Game

"A story of solitary people going with endless strategy."

Monads twists the typical hero-focused fantasy storyline to highlight other characters as well. Instead of adversaries being merely an obstacle to overcome, they gain more agency. Even unnamed soldiers are not merely pawns for fighting a battle. Combat is not just a rote action, but it is hard and painful each time.

Monads introduces a unique parameter called 'Will'. As the battle wears on, characters become fatigued and lose focus. Their stats drop, and there's an opportunity to make enemies retreat without even needing to kill them.

Test your ability to think on a prepared stage.

Diverse view

No single protagonist, but every chapter has own protagonist as different character.
You can escape from a dangerous trap on a fugitive's view, then search the fugitive's azit on a chaser's view.

This presentation will provide satisfaction that you are looking at the events comprehensively.
20 main characters who work together and become hostile to each other for their own purposes, whom will you like the most?

Mercy & Will

There's not only a way to fight against an enemy that kills its purpose. Enemy runs away when it is in danger.
Going through a mental breakdown, such as killing an enemy or getting hurt in battle, will make a cut at its will and the character will become obtuse.

Depending on the character's nature, the effects of certain factors may be greater or less.
More sophisticated planning will be needed to minimize both sides' sacrifices and maintain the character's mental capacity.

Never do grinding

It's a fascinating experience to have stronger powers than before, but it's not only too boring but meaningless to repeat the same battles dozens of times.
Rewards will only be given if you open up a new story or break a new record.

Difficulties

Tactics is an important part of Monads, but you can play it the way you want even if you don't want to use your head in the game.
It offers a wide range of difficulties from 'Intro' for who wants only to enjoy the story, to 'Legend' for who loves hardcore tactical games.
