GOG release: “Monstrum”

Team Junkfish‘s mix of first-person survival horror and roguelike Monstrum scares players DRM-free on GOG.

Monstrum breaks survival horror down to its essentials, disregarding a storyline or characters and focusing instead on a derelict ship as setting and a monster that tries to prevent the protagonist from escaping alive. There are different ways to do this and each one requires certain items for repairs that can be found on the ship. However with each play, everything can change.

The layout of the ship as well as the monster are procedurally generated, in the case of the latter there are three types with varied behaviors to stalk the player. Hiding and using the environment to one’s advantage is the only way to evade the monster, as dying means restarting again. So it might not be the longest game, but from the looks and especially scary sounds of it, it might be frightful and intense enough to play in short play sessions which are obviously a different cat-and-mouse game experience each time due to the random placement of items as well.

Monstrum was originally released in 2015 and has been available on Steam, but together with its soundtrack, it’s now available on GOG with a 80% launch discount that will last until November 12th, 4pm UTC.
