The developer describes Meg’s Monster as an “Adventure RPG”. While telling the emotional story of two very unlikely friends, with a unique turn-based battle system. As the player controls a nigh invincible monster who must dispatch enemies while also protecting a fragile human child. One who comes with strange apocalyptic powers, because, “if she cries, the whole world dies.”
When a lost little girl named Meg (whose tears just so happen to hold the power to bring forth the apocalypse) winds. Doing so in a world full of mutants and monsters who eat humans for breakfast. It’s up to a hulking brute named Roy and his pal Golan to help her make it back home. While they scour the Underworld for clues regarding her mother’s whereabouts. In Meg’s Monster, the trio will slowly warm up to one another, while also uncovering some truly amazing secrets about their world and themselves.
Meg’s Monster Trailer (Linux, Mac, Windows PC)
Starting Meg’s Monster off already maxed out at 99,999 HP, Roy is virtually invincible on his own. But with Meg added into the mix, he’ll have to also be careful not to let any of the tricksy monsters lay a finger on her. Or do anything that might make her cry because if she does, it’s game over for everyone. The system itself is a relatively simple turn-based affair. Since each battle comes with its own unique mechanics and minigames to master as you duke it out. All while protecting and keeping her happy with her favorite toys.
Over the course of their journey together, Roy and Meg will encounter a host of quirky and colorful characters. All lovingly rendered in Odencat’s trademark vibrant pixel aesthetic. Due to making even scary monsters look cute in Meg’s Monster. Whether it’s small-time thugs looking to gobble Meg up themselves, or a human who’s defied the odds. All while managing to survive in this harsh setting for years. Maybe even the distinguished members of the High Underworld Council. There’s plenty of drama and intrigue coming here. Even previously defeated enemies can be befriended through optional sub-events.
With music and sound design by acclaimed Monster Hunter and Atelier Ryza 2 composer Reo Uratani. A main theme featuring ethereal, otherworldly lyrics written and performed by Laura Shigihara of Plants vs Zombies™, To the Moon, Rakuen, and Deltarune fame.
