Roguelike survival horror game Monstrum now available Early Access

About a week back, Linux Game News brought you details of an upcoming survival horror game from Team Junkfish. Monstrum is more of a roguelike with fill-your-pants moments.

Now Monstrum is available for purchase on Steam Early Access and on the Humble Store for a discounted price of $14.99/£9.99/€12.50, which will increase to $17.99/£11.99/€14.99 when the game launches fully in Q2 2015.

Monstrum is a game that takes the traditional survival horror formula and remixes it completely, introducing procedurally generated levels, permadeath, and AI driven predators to ensure that nowhere on its derelict cargo ship are you truly safe.

Offering up a challenge to even the hardiest of gamers, Monstrum will force you to use your wits and whatever tools you can find to outrun or outsmart your pursuer. Attempt to escape from an environment that is out to kill you while evading the lurking terror that could be around any corner. Can you survive Monstrum?

Early Access Features

The initial Early Access version of Monstrum will feature:

  • Two unique monsters, each with their own tracking methods and hunting styles
  • Three potential escape routes, each with their own challenges to solve
  • Four ship sections to navigate through
  • A procedurally generated environment, no ship is ever the same.
  • A variety of distractions, hiding places and tools to aid your survival

Full Release Features

The full release of Monstrum will include:

  • Three monsters in total
  • Five varied ship sections, with their own environmental traps and hazards
  • Oculus Rift support

Something to keep in mind, as with many Early Access titles a Windows PC release is usually the more common platform. Not to fret, a Linux and Mac build is on the way.
