No one wants to be a bad person.
Most games aim to take us as far from everyday problems as possible and set us on fantastic quests to perform in the realm of imagination. Yet the real life and interaction with other people tends to be much more challenging, and the obstacles we find on our way every day are much more difficult. In most games, there’s always a good way out of most situations. It’s the reality that often drops impossible choices on us. This is a game about such choices. Here, out of money and out of luck, you find yourself heart broken and on the verge of collapse. You set out on the open road on a mission to win back the love of your life. The story from there is up to you. Can your life be salvaged, or are we always sometimes monsters?
Always Sometimes Monsters is a title designed for a mature gamer who isn’t afraid to face his fears and problems that reflect what we’re dealing with each day in the real world. You’ll be faced with racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, mental health, sexual assault, child abuse, animal abuse, drug abuse, and suicide. Every choice you make affects the virtual (yet lifelike) world and affects the protagonist and the people you’ll meet on your path. You may find yourself struggling with every decision, but the outcome–whatever it might turn out to be–has the potential to feel like katharsis.
If you think you’re up for the challenge that seems far from everything you’ve faced so far in the gaming realm, make sure to sign up for the original experience that is Always Sometimes Monsters, for only $8.99 on GOG.com. The 10% off release discount offer lasts until Wednesday, May 28, at 4:00PM GMT.
