After all, the franchise includes dozens of games, a card game, many TV series, manga, and more. Plenty of modern gamers know all about games like Monster Hunter: World. But people who have played video games for two or three decades will remember classic titles that originally launched on platforms as old as the SNES.
So, in Februarythey decided to make their own breeding-centric monster game: Monster Crown.
Two years and change later, the duo's now turned to Kickstarter to fund their expanded vision. This brand new species is totally yours—even to name. After a few generations, it will be impossible to tell what monsters you even started with.
A brilliant breeder may find their creations in high demand by competitive battlers and collectors. Your monsters are your legacy. There are roughly collectible monsters in Monster Crown, but you'll have to create the "countless" others yourself by combining whatever suits your fancy.
Some of the base monsters look familiar though I won't name any namesbut the player-made hybrids look unique. Naturally, you can bring any of your creations into the game's turn-based battles, not to mention battle and trade them online. The game's story, meanwhile, is much simpler than its systems: the land of Crown Island once again faces the threat of the Philosopher Kings, an ancient evil that a mysterious woman named Beth plans to revive.
It sounds like you get to choose whether to side with the kingdom or with Beth: Studio Aurum says there's "a pivotal choice that drastically changes the ending and post-game," and that you can become a savior or a dark messiah. You don't really need to turn on your Foreshadow-tron to decrypt that.
