Always Sometimes Monsters Game Review

Always Sometimes Monsters by Vagabond Dog is a choice and consequence RPG. It’s built in RPG Maker so has an old School, JRPG look to it and is very light-weight with simple controls.

Always Sometimes Monsters Epic Fail Review (7)

The Character creation is interesting. You don’t realise you are creating your character (although I guess I’ve kind of clued you in, huh?) but are instead asked to recruit a writer. So I picked the guy who (from the dialogue) seemed like to best. The Writer is then asked to introduce their Significant Other so the Player picks them. I once again chose based off the dialogue, therefore ending up with this Emo-looking Dude as my main character and a sharp-looking Black guy as their SO. I named them Adam and Wayne. In theory I could have gone back and had another go (often I will pick a character that looks like me) but I liked the random element of generating characters this way so I stuck with my gay interracial couple. And I did get the impression that my choice of characters had a subtle consequence on how my character was treated. The developers didn’t just seem to pay lip-service to diversity but that it actually mattered that we were LGBT, and that my characters partner was a POC.
