Meg’s Monster retro turn-based JRPG game is getting to release on Linux, Mac, and Windows PC soon. Thanks to the epic minds beind developer Odencat. Which is all due to make its way onto Steam.

Japan indie publisher / developer Odencat Inc. is gearing up to release their epic, stylized, retro turn-based JRPG game. Which is also creating ripples in its homeland, which is due in the West on March 2nd, 2023. Meg’s Monster is coming to both Linux and Steam Deck. Which has also been in development for the last two years. So now, the final touches are being completed to make this one of Odencat Inc’s most ambitious releases. Which is due to include multi-language options. Coming after successful releases including Bear’s Restaurant. Along with amazing community support and anticipation for the game.

Meg’s Monster chronicles the story of two very unlikely friends. While encased in a unique, raw, scripted, turn-based battle system. Where the player controls a nigh invincible monster who must defeat enemies. Doing so while protecting a fragile human child with strange apocalyptic powers. Because if she cries, the whole world dies.

Meg, the human child, (whose tears just so happen to hold the power to bring forth the apocalypse) winds up in a world full of mutants and monsters. They also 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 location. So the trio slowly warm up to one another. While also uncovering some truly amazing secrets about their world and themselves.

Meg’s Monster Teaser Trailer

Meg’s Monster’s retro style and simple in presentation quickly unfolds into a challenging, amusing, and must-play RPG. The story quickly pulls the player into the story while at the same time giving a real empathy for the characters. Over 50,000 words of dialogue give a rich and compelling story to the many battles coming as you venture forth. Each battle comes with its own unique mechanics and minigames to master. So you can duke it out while protecting and keeping Meg happy with her favourite toys. Yes, keeping Meg calm and happy is just one underlying factor. A nice toy will achieve this. But it’s not that simple in Meg’s Monster.

Roy, the monster, has 99999 HP and is almost invincible (as in almost every enemy can’t kill him; think Saitama from One Punch Man). However, when he takes damage, the other protagonist, Meg, takes emotional and mental damage in Meg’s Monster. Since she is a child and can’t bear to see Roy getting hurt. If her mental gauge reaches zero, she’ll cry and the world ends. This means that players will need to balance Meg’s mood, as well as defeating enemies that want to destroy them. Roy will need to use toys to keep Meg happy and prevent her from crying.

The Demo for Linux, Mac, and Windows PC is available on Steam. Should you want to test your skill at keeping Meg calm.

Also, famed Monster Hunter, Hi-Fi Rush, and Atelier Ryza 2 composer Reo Uratani, and a main theme featuring ethereal, otherworldly lyrics written and performed by Laura Shigihara of Plants vs Zombies™, To the Moon, Rakuen, and Deltarune fame, Meg’s Monster soundtrack has much to offer.

Meg’s Monster retro turn-based JRPG game will be live on Steam, on March 2nd, 2023. Priced at $14.99 USD / £10.99 / 13,99€. Along with support for Linux, Steam Deck, Mac, and Windows PC.
