Always Sometimes Monsters

By Devolver Digital

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Out of money and out of luck you find yourself broken hearted and on the verge of collapse. Your landlord's taken the key back, you can't finish your manuscript, and your beloved is marrying someone else. With no choice but to handle whatever life throws at you, you set out on the open road on a mission to win back the love of your life. The story from there to redemption is up to you. Can we be salvaged, or are there always sometimes monsters?

• Choice - A story-driven experience focusing on relationships and emotional bonds rather than traditional RPG combat and adventuring. Indecision is your enemy and empathy is your weapon in a quest to earn one last chance to win back the love of your life.
• Circumstance - Choose from characters of different gender, race, and sexual preference and live through the common experiences and unique hardships of each based on your selection. NPCs may treat you differently based on your gender, race, or sexual preference opening and closing different paths along the way.
• Consequence - Each playthrough is filled with a staggering number of diverging paths that can be discovered through both overt actions and subtle choices in conversation. The journey you experience will be tailored to our personal ethical compass as your decisions both conscious and subconscious change your fate.

Customer Reviews

Has potential, but actual life is more fun

The shtick here is that the developers built in a huge number of ethical and narrative decision trees in order to impact the everyday living and consequences experienced by your character. That principle sucked me in, because I like most of the few "morality sim/RPGs" that exist (like the old console game Fable).

The first couple hours of gameplay were enjoyable because I could see the direct impact of real-time decisions, make some challenging moves and interact with NPCs in a more or less believable and interesting way.

The game quickly turned to mindless grinding -- when I was fortunate enough to stumble across the place *where* I was supposed to grind. Killing hogs, moving boxes, sleeping on filthy mattresses in alleyways -- yeah, why am I NOT outside IRL right now? And it's always sometimes depressing.

I admire the game's stated goal, but in my view it constituted an amateurish, monotonous and ultimately unsuccessful attempt.

I'm about to play threw your game.

I owe you more than this play through, with your help I've been able to get on my feet. At least enough to spend some quality time thinking about everything that's been a true nightmare. But I'll get back to you very very soon.

The bad reviews make me more sad than this game did

I've had this game since it came out, and I'm leaving a review because I think this game deserves a better rating. if you're a curious type of person I think you'll enjoy it.
