Always Sometimes Monsters

An RPG About Real Life

So many RPGs tell a grand tale of worlds in peril and heroes that come from meager beginnings. Always Sometimes Monsters from Vagabond Dog and Devolver Digital is none of that. It's about real life, relationships, and a love slipping away.

Players can choose to enter this classic-looking RPG as a customizable protagonist of different genders, races, and sexual preferences. Those decisions will shape the story, and through number of branching paths lead players to different conclusions.

You can see the announcement trailer of Always Sometimes Monsters below. The title will be at PAX in Seattle this weekend. It's due out in Spring 2014.

  • That seems cool. I'd play it out of curiosity.
  • Looks interesting

  • Wow...kind of out of left field with this. It looks and sounds different, that's for sure. Might be interesting.

  • 'It's a show...about nothing.'
  • Seems... interesting enough. It'd like to see how it pans out.

  • interesting I'll give it a try, if a rpg about farming (harvest moon) is fun to me im sure a rpg about life could be a little fun

  • Color me interested. I love whenever a game deviates from the usual stuff we get.

  • I have this sinking feeling that this is gonna be one of those games that is surprisingly good, but at the same time, the story is really, really depressing...
  • If it was randomized then that would be pretty epic. It still looks pretty awesome though.

  • I'm really excited for this, it looks like it could be great. No mention of a platform though, I hope it's PC.
  • I love the title.

  • It's nice that it's a game about something most games aren't about, and so I suppose it's got that going for it.

    But the whole preachy emo subjective morality crap . . . I got enough of that in college.

    Not interested.

  • I've actually wondered why RPG's like this don't really exist. I would gladly play one. This game definitely holds my interest.

  • This is exactly the type of game I look for. Will buy, guaranteed.

  • I am extremely curious right now.

  • Mod

    It seems pretty cool. I 'll have to keep my eye on it.

  • It does raise my curiosity but I like my RPGs to have magic, skill trees, level grinding and all that good stuff.

  • I wonder if they've got consoles in mind for it?  I'd be up for playing this. Always on the lookout for something different.

  • Sounds really interesting, im going to checkit out for sure.
