You’re a young monster, orphaned by humans who now wear your parents as luxurious pelts. You live in the village of Omen, and your favorite snack is human fingers. As a monster, you pop up in the most interesting places — what do you do when three angry bears discover a young blonde girl in their cabin? Or when you spy a wolf hunting down that woman with the red cloak?
As a monsterling, your choices are simple ones. Do you have that blueberry pie, knowing it will spoil your dinner and turn your coat blue? Do you play with one bowling ball and become better at sports, or juggle a dozen, thereby growing lots of arms? What happens when you win that staring contest with the Thousand Eyed Demon? As a youth, your choices determine your appearance.
But all youngins must grow up. Monsters and humans have been at odds for centuries, and there are human villages on the other side of the enchanted woods. When human children get lost in those dark and winding thickets, do you terrorize them for fun? Do you help return them to Human civilization to prove that not all monsters are to be feared and hated? Or do you fatten them up for human foie gras — a monster delicacy? All this, to the backdrop of increasing tensions between Monster- and Humankind.
Monster Loves You is what happens when you put Radial’s Andy Moore and Dejobaan’s Ichiro Lambe at a table with artisan whiskey, simple syrup, chillies, and an iPad. Out now on Steam right here.
