Live the life of a Monster, from birth to elderhood and beyond, making decisions that affect the world of Monsters and Humans.
You live in the village of Omen, and your favorite snack is the fingers of small children. As a Monster, you pop up in the most interesting places - what do you do when three angry bears discover a young child in their cabin? Or when you spy a wolf hunting down that woman with the red cloak?
As a Monsterling, your choices are simple ones. Do you chase those poor little mice (+1 Ferocity) or protect them from the dogs (+1 Kindness)? Do you come clean about that fungus your friends ate (+1 Honesty) or cover for them (+1 Bravery)? As a youth, your choices determine your personality.
But all youngins must grow up. Monsters and Humans have been at odds for centuries, and there are Human villages on the other side of the enchanted woods. When Human children get lost in those dark and winding thickets, do you terrorize them for fun (+1 Ferocity)? Do you help return them to Human civilization to prove that not all Monsters are to be feared and hated (+1 Kindness)? Or do you fatten them up for Human foie gras - a Monster delicacy? All this, to the backdrop of increasing tensions between Monster- and Humankind.… Expand

You will be making text-based decisions, and that's it. The art style is cute, charming and childlike. It's nicely drawn and amusing but lacks any form of animations, making it feel stale. The gameplay is based around picking dialogue options, gaining statistic increases (E.g. bravery, cleverness) depending on what route you pick, and the routes are quite vast, resulting in one of 14 potential endings. Sadly, that is all there is to it, it gets repetitive quick and there is very little content present, resulting in one playthrough taking somewhere around 1 mere hour.
