Are you a bad enough monster to help a lost little girl find her mommy? You can find out when you try the newly released demo for Meg’s Monster! You can check it out now over on the game’s Steam page.

Along with the demo, developer Odencat also announced the game will be a part of Steam Next Fest in October. Wishlist the game and find out what they have in store!

About Meg’s Monster via the game’s Steam description:

Welcome to the Underworld—a land of monsters and mutants who eat humans for breakfast.

One such monster—a hulking ogre by the name of Roy—has no interest in eating humans. But one day, he and his best friend Golan stumble upon a lost little girl named Meg, and discover something truly terrifying: the moment she starts wailing in fear, a blood-red hue washes over the sky, and the earth itself begins to tremble and quake.

That’s right: this small girl’s tears hold the power to bring forth the apocalypse—and the only way to stop it is for them to help find her mother so she can make it safely back home.

Meg’s Monster is a short, story-driven JRPG with a big twist. Players control Roy, who begins the game with 99,999 HP and is virtually untouchable—but the real concern is keeping Meg safe, because if she starts crying, it’s game over for everyone. Players will have to master the unique mechanics and mini-games baked into each battle, all while protecting Meg and using her favorite toys to keep her pacified.

Over the course of their journey together, Roy and Meg will encounter a host of quirky and colorful characters, all lovingly rendered in Odencat’s trademark vibrant pixel aesthetic that makes even scary monsters look cute. There’s plenty of drama and intrigue to be found here—and even previously defeated enemies can be befriended through optional sub-events.

What begins as a relatively simple and heartwarming story about two unlikely friends ultimately expands into something much greater, as Roy and Meg slowly begin to unravel the mysteries surrounding the Underworld and themselves. The result is an emotional journey that, like any good storybook, will remain in your heart for years to come.

Meg’s Monster launches for Steam and Nintendo Switch sometime during Winter 2022. Stay tuned to RPGFan as we learn more about this monster and his little companion!
