Jun 5, 2013Dejobaan has made a game with attention to detail: the text is tingling with witty black humor, there’s pleasantly looped music and the static drawings portray beautifully this surreal monster-world. [May 2013]
Apr 23, 2013If you go into Monster Loves You with the knowledge that this is really an interactive story for children, then you can get plenty out of it. It's quick to get through and packs the same kind of charm and sweetness as a good kids book but it really is a game designed for younger gamers.

Jun 11, 2013Monster Loves You! is a cute, whimsical and basically well done Choose Your Own Adventure kind of game, but it is entirely too short.
In each phase of the monster's evolution, the player faces a number of "challenges" where multiple choice answers slowly form the characteristics of the monster. If it helps others, the kindness stat goes up, if finds good solutions to problems, the cleverness attribute increases. if it flies right into battles with claws extended and teeth exposed, it becomes more ferocious, and so on.
In essence, this is the entire game. The graphics are well done and atmospheric, the dialogue is shallow but funny, with plenty of references, but there isn't much actual gameplay here and you'll be through in under two hours. It's more like an (simplistic) interactive story, and not like Tamagotchi, as I had initially believed when I read the description.
It's not bad. It's just too short and has little replay value unless you are going to hunt for the Steam achievements. It is clear that love has gone into making the game and visuals and audio are beautiful, there just isn't enough game here for the money.… Full Review »
Nov 1, 2013Pros: Cute visuals, nice music, interesting concept of choosing your monster's character and destiny. It's nice for people who like text-based games as the writing can be witty here and there.
Cons: If you are a fast reader, a single play-through takes only 10 mins (perhaps 15 mins the first time). Even though you can theoretically play the game through several times, making different choices, you'll soon realise that there are very limited adventures, and you'll more or less know the results after playing it two or three times. The story is very short, and very limited, despite the attempt at giving multiple choice answers. While the visuals are nice, they are mostly just backdrops, and you can't interact with them.
Verdict: I paid US$6 for the game (on sale) and find that it isn't really worth the money. I think I could find several better (albeit older) games for that price. The game would have really benefited from a more extensive storyline and a greater decision tree.… Full Review »
Jun 13, 2013Monster Loves You! is a beautifully animated, majestic game with a great story line and fun adventures that you can set out to achieve. There are hundreds of ways your monster could end out.
The engine and cut scenes were well thought out and the Radial Games Corp. has just done an amazing job. You can pick your future and it changes with every choice.
Monster Loves You! has a unique sense of humor and i would recommend to any of you out there with a boring life to get it! It is also great for children and it is very addictive.
I have played for 4 hours straight picking my destiny and wishing it would end out as perfect as it can be. I rate it 10/10, awesome game… Full Review »
