Monstrum: procedural horror game arrives in May for consoles, see trailer
Certain games spend so much time in development that you forget they were being produced. It is the case of monster, which spent the last few years gone, and will arrive on consoles next month!
Searching for the title of the game here on the website, I realized that I mentioned it for the first time in February 2014… more than six years ago! Since then, the game has only reached the PCs, and will soon finally hit consoles, and promises a terrifying survival horror experience.
The game’s story puts us on an abandoned freighter, and we don’t know how we got there. To make matters worse, there’s a monster out there on the boat, and he’ll do anything to wipe out our race! Finding a way to escape alive is our main objective, but we must also investigate and collect clues that will allow us to understand the situation.
Check out the new trailer for the game below, which finally delivers a release date:
Although it’s essentially a survival horror, monster it has roguelike elements in its recipe: to start with, there is permadeath, meaning death is final, and there are no continues or save points. Dying means starting all over again.
Furthermore, the ship’s layout is procedural, changing randomly from one game to another. In other words, it’s no use thinking you can decorate where each room is, as everything will be rearranged. Even the monster can be different every game!
That is, monster it will be a punishing experience of trial and error. Something that, I confess, doesn’t attract me at all. But, it’s a matter of taste, so if you want to be angry about being chased by the monster, don’t forget that the game hits consoles on May 22, and will have versions for Playstation 4, Xbox one and Nintendo Switch. the version SQUARE is already available on steam, and overall received good reviews.
