We had a great time at EGX Rezzed and one of the highlights for us was getting to meet long time member of My Games Lounge Stephanie who’s a developer on the awesome, procedural game Monstrum that is for PC and uses Oculus Rift technology to take you to a confined ship trapped with one of three different Monsters.
The cool permadeath element and the fact your level is never the same due to the starting of a new game places you on a new ship layout every time really keeps you on edge during your gameplay and, as you hear in the interview a number of people were jumping out of their seats playing it! Just what we want to see.
Some more detail on the game is down the page.
Don’t miss our EGX coverage featuring:
Monstrum takes the traditional survival horror formula and remixes it completely with procedurally generated levels, permadeath, and AI driven predators, ensuring that nowhere on its derelict cargo ship is ever truly safe.
Offering up a challenge to even the hardiest of gamers, Monstrum will force you to use your wits and whatever tools you can find to outrun or outsmart your pursuer. Attempt to escape from an environment that is out to kill you while evading the lurking terror that could be around any corner. Can you survive Monstrum?
Three Unique Monsters
Face one of three monster types each play-through, each one with different behaviours and tactics. Can you work your way out of an ambush or escape a direct attack? And will the same actions work every time?
Prepare for a different gameplay environment each time you play as the ship’s interior shifts shape with every run, changing the location of items along the way.
Discover different methods of escape and delve into the bowels of the ship to recover items you need to repair them.
Opportunities and Hazards
Use whatever you can find to try and outwit the monster. Hide in lockers or under furniture. Use distractions to attract the monster to you, or, perhaps more wisely, to where you’ve just been, but be careful not to run too fast lest you fall into one of the ships numerous traps along the way.
Death is death. Get killed in Monstrum and you’ll be starting again. In a different ship, probably against a different monster. Good luck. Start running.
