Wow, this was such an amazing experience! And I've tried only one character so far!

The overall ambience of the game is great - it's so beautiful! And botht the art and music are gorgeous. I'm curious, is the music custom made or just very good choices?

As for the characters, I liked all of the ones I've interacted with, but I'm weak towarts Nikolai. He isn't really "my type", but I really like alkonosts - one of my favorite magical creatures actually. I was amazed to see one in a game honestly - they're not a very well known species. And well, somehow, I've come to like him a lot, even in such a short span. But I bet his route will be tricky - at least to get a good ending. Oh well, I do like challenges!


Also, I wanted to ask three questions, if you don't mind!

- Will you add more characters to the game?

- Are you planning on adding CGs?

- How many chapters per route for the full release?


Anyway, thanks for the great experience, and good luck with the project!

I absolutely Loved the game, and I highly look forward to future content updates.

Thank you so much!!! We really appreciate your support and hope you will continue to enjoy the game as it progresses!! <3

Hey, thank you! This is a really cool thing you guys are doing!! Unfortunately, I don't think this game would qualify for this, but we'll definitely keep it in mind for future projects! Thanks for playing and commenting!! <3

So I just got an update telling me you guys have added the doll girl but apparently my demo ends right after the date with the rabbit girl. How do I get the updated version?

Are you able to refuse to go on a date with Elsie after talking to her? That should give you the scene to meet Vivietta, but if you still have trouble, please let us know!!

Thank you for asking, I hope that helps!!

This game is lovely! Love all the characters so far, though I haven't gotten too far in the game since I was enjoying myself too much and suddenly remembered that "player character death" was under the warnings and now I'm too anxious to play. ;_; but fret not, i shall romance all those monster babes eventually. Eventually. 

Oh noooooo ahaha!! Well, you can rest assured that nobody can die in the currently released content, so it's safe to play for now!! But as we release future chapters, you're welcome to come to our discord server and ask us what options to choose to avoid any character death and we'll do our best to help you out ๐Ÿ’– 

Thank you for playing and commenting!! ๐Ÿ’–

I absolutely LOVE this game! I love the characters, the story so far, and I really can't wait for more content! 


The only issue I have is I'd like more customisability while speaking. More options on what to say, if that makes sense!

Ahhhh, thank you so much for your lovely comment and for supporting our game!! <3


That's a really great point and I'd love to hear your thoughts on what places in the text you particularly would have liked more dialogue options! Would you be willing to join our discord server and chat with us about it? c: <3

I really love this game so far!! Its amazing! I do want to ask though, when will we have access to Vivietta? I saw a post on twitter from back in December saying that she would have been in the game later that week, but she isnt here. I could be wrong and just dont know how to find her, but I just thought I would ask!

Thank you so much for commenting! I'm so sorry about Vivietta- we really wanted to get her update done but we got very busy over the holidays and never quite recovered. But! We are definitely making progress and hoping to have her update out sometime this week!! Once the update is out, to find her, you'll have to refuse Elsie. <3 Thank you for playing and supporting us!! <3

The update is out and you can now date Vivietta!! ๐Ÿ’–

Hi, so far the game is really good. What frustrated me a bit was the limited character customization at the beginning. If there won't be at least a skin customization feature at the beginning, then an idea would be to remove the OC from the picture altogether, like other games. All in all, I love the game so far. I hope more improvements regarding these facts come in the next update ^^

(+1)

I'm really glad you liked the game!! Skin tone should be changeable via the lower slider, were you thinking of a change for the skin that isn't color? 
I hope you also enjoy the next update! ^^

Hello, I really love this game, but there's isn't any new about new updates, are you still working on this game?

(+1)

Thank you so much for playing and commenting and checking on us!! <3 Sorry for the lack of news, I'm just bad at keeping up with social media. We are still working on it!!! There is a new update that should hopefully be out this week! <3

(+4)

damn nikolai was wasting no time with that date

He has priorities heh

Thank you for playing and commenting! <3

(+2)

I really liked this and I hope it's still being worked on. The art is so nice! I'm really curious how the rest of the game will go. Fell quite hard for that wonderful kelpie Cailean.

It's still being worked on! We're just terrible at keeping up with social media, haha. Thank you so much for your kind words!! I hope you will enjoy discovering more of Cailean's story! <3

(+2)

This is so cute and wonderful!! I don't know if this is still being worked on or not, but Deka is honest-to-god my reason for living and I CANNOT wait to see where this goes!! 

(+1)

Thank you so much!!! It absolutely is still being worked on, don't worry!! <3 Wow, Deka fans are so rare, thank you so much for commenting and being so lovely!!!! <3 <3 <3

(+2)

It's no problem at all!! I wish y'all the best of luck on this project and I can't wait to see what you come up with!!

I'm going to wait for the new chapters of this amazing game <3

Hope you can update soon!!

Ahhh thank you! We hope to have another update out soon!! Thank you so much for playing and leaving us such nice words. <3 <3 <3

This was so good! The customization options were amazing, and to be rather honest, relieving. Not only that, but I really loved the characters! Their personalities were so unique and charming, and it was super cool to go through all the endings and see everyone's pov on different subjects. I'm really interested to see where the story goes, as its definitely a plotline I've never seen before. <3 <3 <3

Aha, your comment makes me curious about what you found relieving in the customization options.I'm really glad that it was a positive experience! <3 Also I'm really delighted that you played through all the routes and enjoyed seeing things from different points of view in the game!! It's something we put a lot of effort into and I'm glad it's fun for people!! <3 Thank you so much for playing and leaving us your kind words!! <3 <3 <3

I love this game!

I hope you can update soon again! 

Nikolai is my favorite character. I can't help myself. He's so cute :)

Thank you! We're working on the next update and hope to have it released soon!

Nikolai is so fun, he's one of my favorites too. c: I'm glad you like him so much!! Thank you for playing and leaving us a lovely comment!!

the fact u can choose your own pronouns and customize your character already had me sold for the game, its hard to find games that allow non-binary pronouns. so i was literally bursting with happiness when i started playing the game

then i saw the art!!! i was in awe with how beautiful the game is, just i love it so much for those things alone. and the characters and music is absolutely amazing!! 

like, the world building and the atmosphere of the game is wonderful, just everything about this game so far is amazing and i look forward to more chapters!

(1 edit)

Thank you so much!! I'm glad that being able to have control over the character's pronouns means so much to you. <3 And thank you also for your lovely comments on the art and world building!! We really appreciate it and hope you continue to look forward to the future updates! <3

Dated all characters, they're all my favorites and I look forward to more chapters. 11/10, love this game. 

Thank you so much, this is such a sweet comment!! I'm impressed that they can all be your favorites, wow!! Thank you for playing and supporting us!! <3

I went in without knowing anything other than the developer supported Maximum Monster Month! 2 and I ended up kissing Elsie on my first run. Not really into the racism theme, but I liked the characters. I loved Elsie and Deka. Cailean is an interesting character too, but I guess he and Nikolai are a bit overly stereotyped. I really enjoyed the game, it's been a while since I am lost in a visual novel without judging it too harshly.

Thank you for participating in Maximum Monster Month 2! Sorry some of the themes of the game weren't to your taste - they are listed in the 'Content Warnings' section of the game, but I realize the page is long and they may have been missed. Regardless, thank you for playing!! I'm glad you enjoyed Elsie and Deka so much!! <3

Well, I need more of this game like I need the air I breathe. I'm going to be singing the design, and character building abilities of you lovely developers and sitting her waiting for the next chapter. The art style and theme is perfect for me, I'm a sucker for mythologies and fantasy, and magical realism. It's all over my art, my stories. Seeing as I just finished obsessing over Deltarune and drawing my favorite characters, I think Cailen is next. Freakin' considerate, shy, potentially dangerous 'sea horse' (clever) with a beautiful design. I'm not going to apologize for falling in love, because you didn't leave me any other option!

oh as a side note, thank you for assuring visualization to us gender--fluid and nonbinary folk.

Thank you so much for your words of praise!! They're lovely and they mean so much to us. <3 I'm so glad, also, that you personally appreciated the options for gender expression. People like you are the reason we include that in our games, so you don't have to make compromises when you play them. So thank you for mentioning it. <3

As for the game!! We'll be adding an update next week to celebrate the one year anniversary of the game's initial release!! So you won't have much longer to wait for that, and I hope you'll look forward to it and enjoy it when it comes out!! Thank you so much for your support!

Enjoyed the art style. My only nit pick is the hair style  of MC. Would of been nice to have a couple options of style not really a big deal.

Thank you for playing and for making a video!! I hope you enjoyed talking to Elsie. <3 The customizer is limited to make development faster, but maybe with more funding, we could add a couple more options later. c:

I absolutly <3 this game!!! I can't get over how kind (and cute) Cailean is. I hope we get to enjoy the full version soon (fingers crossed).....

Thank you so much!!! I'm glad you like Cailean so much!! <3 I don't know when the full version will be complete, but we will keep updating with new content as we complete it, so check back again in the future!! Thank you for playing and commenting! <3

(+1)

I really enjoy this game so far! Deku is my favorite so far. When do you think this might be completed? 

As in, entirely completed? We're not sure. Hopefully within another year? In the meantime, we're just adding updates to the content as we complete it, so check back again in the future!! Thank you for playing and leaving us a comment!! <3

wow, so i liked the game but i don't knew this is no fully complete yet. 

This get so sad. But i'm looking forward the next story, so thanks for he good work, i really liked the game the monster, 

Nikolai  is my fav, i wanted see the friend with black hair too, but Nikolai look lonesome, something him need I don't know. 

Well thanks and i'll waiting for more, this is very nice

Thank you!! Sorry to disappoint you with an unfinished game, but we'll hopefully update again soon!! Maybe some day, Nikolai's friend can get a sprite too, haha. Thank you for playing, and I hope you will enjoy the next installment too. <3

(+1)

Very nice so far!

 I really like the art-each character seems to have their own color scheme (Cailean's is green and blue , Nikolai's is red, Deka's is purplish and Elsie's is also purplish?) But at any rate, they're all very pleasing to look at! Especially I like Elsie's shirt, for some reason. It looks like it's very comfy. I liked how Deka's eyes changed with their mood. It was very clever, and very cute.

If anything I am more curious to what happens next in the story, especially about the necromancer.  I wonder if you can date the necromancer though that wouldn't be the best idea XD

Keep up the good work! I'll be eagerly awaiting it!

(+1)

Yes, you're right!! Elsie's color scheme is more of a green/white, but you were pretty close! (Maybe it's not clear enough oops haha) Her sweater does look very cozy <3 Thank you very much for playing and leaving us a nice comment!!

As for whether you can date the necromancer... well, that would be spoilers, wouldn't it? ^^

(-1)

It is the best game I've played but if you want some advice i would say some pictures as in certain parts of the game where each picture of the character your dating is in a spot where they look good for example: a human girl at the beach in her bikini or a human guy working out at the gym, like other visual novels. you should also animate the movements of the whole body when there face changes or they change position and have the animation of the friends and waitresses so we know what they look like as well. one more thing since you don't have it finished try to get more people on your team for example: you can have more people to come up with ideas, people who draw those ideas, people virtually draw those those ideas, people who program them, and etc. 

Thank you for the compliment!! <3

I believe the images you're talking about are CGs? We are planning to put CGs into the game later!! It's just not as high on the priority list as we wrap up getting sprites for the major characters.

Animating movements of the whole body is a nice stretch goal, but it's a LOT of extra work! So while it's something we would ideally like to do also, it's definitely on the "Things we'd like to do if we get a lot of Patreon/KS funding" list, haha. Same for making full sprites for the background characters. c:

As for more people on the team: It's true we are only a two person team right now. But we are comfortable with the team dynamic we have now! We might commission outside sources for assets at some point, such as music, and maybe someday we will want a larger team for our works, But at the moment, this is what works for us.

Thank you for all your lovely suggestions. c: I appreciate you taking the time to think about how we can improve our game and I welcome more ideas! Thank you for playing and leaving us a nice comment! <3

The art is great, from the characters to the backgrounds. I love absolutely everything about this game! <3 Thank you for making this (also a VERY big thank you for pronoun options) I will definitely wait for more content โ™ฅ

Wow thank you so much!! I'm glad you appreciate the pronoun options <3 They're not hard to implement, and we feel like they're worth it for the people that need them. c: I'm glad it made the game a better experience for you. <3

This looks really good I just wanted to ask, I'm confused on which file to download, I have windows and it looks like there are three different versions? Please help because this looks so awesome!!

(+1)

Ahh, I hope you'll like it!! Any of those versions should work just fine, but if you don't want to decide, we recommend this one: monstrata-fracture-win-linux.zip

Let us know how it goes!! <3

Thank you!

Edit: I just played it, Elsie is my favorite! I thought I wouldn't like Deku but I actually like them a lot too.

(1 edit)

Ahhh thank you for playing it!! I'm glad you liked the characters!! <3

I'm confused, it suggests there is much more content but I can't get past Elsie. A, I doing something wrong?

Thank you for asking!! Since Elsie is a recent addition, her section of the game is a little bit linear right now. To access the other characters in the game, when you're in the classroom and it gives you the option to look at the "rabbit girl" or to look at the "seaweed boy", choose the "seaweed boy". This will set you on the path to meeting everyone else who is currently in the game. Sorry about the confusion!!

Elsie is adorable! Lovely adition.

Thank you!! We'll be adding a few more girls soon!!

(+1)

I enjoyed the demo! I really like Cailean and Deka. Both of them are super cute!

I'm really glad you like them!! They're both very sweet. c: Look forward to the next update and thank you for playing and commenting!! <3

I love all of the characters

Awww, thank you! <3 We have more of them in store, I hope you'll love the future ones too!! Thank you for playing and commenting!! <3

I don't see any love for Cailean in the comments so I just wanted to change that! He is sweet and adorable <3 I love ALL the characters but he seemed underrepresented here lol.

I'm sure he appreciates your kindness!! <3 Don't worry, he's quite popular in our Discord server. <3 Thank you so much for playing and commenting!!

Love the game, but it crashes every time I try to save it... I've played earlier versions and didn't have this problem, on a mac each time - I adore Elsie though!

Oh dear! I'll ask the lead developer to look into this. Does it give you any information when it crashes?

I'm really glad you enjoyed it despite the crashing! So sorry about this!!

Ah no need to apologise, every game has teething problems! It doesn't give any information - whenever I click on a save slot the game just shuts down. I'm still able to play right through the game though..

Thank you so much for reporting this! This is the other developer. If you could, do you think you could make it crash again, then go to /Monstrata.app/Contents/Resources/autorun/ and send us the log.txt? It would really help me replicate your issue, and hopefully fix it asap!

I downloaded the update but couldn't help but do Nikolai's route again. I love this game and the characters a lot. Thank you for your work!

(+1)

Thank you for downloading and playing again! I hope the changes to Nikolai's route were fun for you. <3 Thank you so much for your comment!!

This game is absolutely wonderful! Thank you so much for your hard work, I'm already pretty invested in all the characters with just the demo! You guys have done a wonderful job and thank you so much for sharing such a lovely thing. I can't wait until it's done since it's already so fantastic.

Nikolai seems to be very popular lol, easy to see why. I really love that he's an alkonost, I thought that was like, the coolest mythology tidbit! You guys have done awesome here. I love the depth you've already put into the world what with Nikolai being upper class and Deka lower, and this showing very clearly.  I look forward to seeing Nikolai's development, lol, since he's charming and beautiful and I can tell there is more but he is a bit of a mean girl. As you are when you grow up lucky.

Sorry for rambling but I already could so much tbh! Lovely!

Ahhh, thank you so much! I'm glad you're enjoying the game so far! I'm really glad that the clear social stratification is coming through also. c: I hope that Nikolai's development will be satisfying for you!

Also there is a new update, if you haven't had the chance to check it out!

Thank you for the lovely comment! <3

(+1)

Any new content? I'm anxious to romance Nikolai!

(+1)

Ahhh, Nikolai is my favorite too!! There's no new content yet, but I'll put together a status update soon so everyone will know where we are currently! Thank you for checking in!! <3

i'm glad we all feel the same about Nikolai and his glorious self but i have a question, i know that he is an avian but i was wondering if he's based off of/ is something specific like a sirin or a harpy or if he was based off a specific kind of bird

 A good question! Nikolai is an alkonost, a creature from Russian mythology very similar to a sirin!! He is not designed after a particular bird, his design is purely the whim of the artist. I hope that answers your questions!

Thank you! it makes me incredibly happy to see that unlike some other creators, you make time to come online and answer questions that fans of the game may have^^ keep up the good work!

Thank you! I may not always answer in a timely fashion, but I do try to answer eventually! We really like connecting with the people who play our game. <3

im just checking in too to see how its going 

That's sweet of you, thank you!! As I mentioned in the other comment, things slowed down for some real-life reasons for a bit, but we'll be back on track with an update soon! I'll try to write up a devlog to state our current progress soon. Thank you for checking in!! <3
