Felt super satisfying to figure it out what a joy!
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Monstrüous is a puzzle game in which you have to figure out in which order to use 8 actions to kill the monstruous creature. It usually takes about 45 min to complete the game. No crazy gaming skills required, it's the perfect game to play with your non-gamer friends or family ! a game by Arnaud Millot :

Really loved this game and only wish there was MORE!!! Great job and I cannot wait to see what comes next
Delightful game, the art design both impressed and made me chuckle a lot, and the puzzle was cleverly put together.
loved this! hope to see more monsters to kill!
Haha are videogames really about killing stuff ? Meeeeh, I guess they are !
Happy to see it got you in a killing mood :)
this is so interesting I absolutely enjoy your art style, remind me of adventure time snd midnight gossip but more scary!
Really love this game - the visuals are obviously gorgeous but it's so easy to get addicted until you finish it.
How can I contact you about a maybe kinda-cool thing?
Hi Ryan ! Sorry for the late reply, I just saw your message here. Thanx for your kind review, glad you enjoyed my game ! I sent you a mail
A fun looking game some neat animations. It is pretty short, but its obvious that the creator put in a lot of work to make all the charming little animations.
That was very interesting and really fun!
I adore the visual design and the animations are smooth. The music and sound effect do a nice job too.
I believe that a longer game doing the same kind of puzzle would became repetitive soon and, thus, having a single combat puts it into the right length. However, i would not mind trying a game that expands the worlds with varied puzzles and situations .
Thank you for making the game!
Hi Perlta ! Thanks for playing the game and for this kind developed review ! the original plan was to make 1 level like that and maybe afterwards make some others, maybe with different styles or tones. But making this 1 game proved to be veeery long and yes, I'm not sure making others just like that would be interesting as you have certain patterns really hard to change, like having to activate the slowest options first (here trumpet and coffee).
I might make an other game, but more like a puzzle / escape game this time and kind of the same visuals. As coding is not my strong point, I naturally go towards easy-to-code games :)
Excellent. On avance dans la déduction à un bon rythme : J’ai mis pas mal d’essai à y arriver mais à chaque essai je comprenais quelque chose de nouveau. Et les anims sont très drôles. Par contre c’est vraiment cruel.
Haha oui c'est cruel ! Mais du coup je trouve ça marrant de me dire qu'il y a des joueurs qui ne veulent pas tuer la créature (on ne sait même pas pourquoi il faudrait la tuer d'ailleurs) mais qui vont le faire quand même parce qu'ils veulent jouer ^^ Merci pour ton retour Léon, ça fait plaisir !
It reminded me of fighting monsters in the woods near my house as a kid.
Thanks for your kind review ! Iif you have monsters like this one anywhere near your house, I would recommend burning down the woods entirely XD
Amazing game! Loved the animations and the humour :)
The art here was great. More story than I had expected but I'm all the more pleased by it! I hope you enjoy my video I madeYour game starts at 3:14
really fantastic game ! creative, newable and smoothly rendered animation
Soooooo cute! ! ! ! This work❤❤
Whether it's art style or skill animation, it's very cute.
Looking forward to the next story
Such an awesome little game. I'd love to see it expanded on!
Animations and art style were very perfect and it was fun figuring out what that all the abilities did.
Thanks Samao for this kind note. I'm very glad you enjoyed the game that much :) "very perfect" is a strong compliment haha ^^
What a crazy game. We liked it very much.
At first we always had to sacrifice the frog to succed but we found the right combination eventualy. :)
Couldn't open on Mac v10.14.3
Hi Louis, I'm sorry to hear that... Which Mac OS version are you using ?
Overall, it's a very cute game. A mini-world of enormous creativity. Loved the designs, the animation and the final music! Reminds me of those early puzzle flash games.
Would play a full game, if there's any in the future.
Thanks Borza ! Slowly working on something new, but not a sequel :) Hopefully you'll like it as much as you did monstrüous ^^
Very delightful animation! Would buy a full game if there was one
Haha thank you Oori ! Don't expect a full game anytime soon though, these things take time ;)
Hey Arnaud, excellent animation! Was it done using flash or photoshop?
Played, replayed to find animations I missed, came back to donate. Thanks for this delightful little creation!
this is the second ending, i got it after a read the frog dies but still finishing the game. it took me 2 3 tries to got this :D
PS: DONT WATCH IT IF YOU WANT TO FINISH IT YOURSELF!
It took me a while to get the ending where the frog dies but I was sad when that happened so I sifted through comments for the other ending to see if it was different, It isn't... But It's very awesome! Is it a demo? If so will the finished game be on Steam?
Hi Ben ! Sorry for the disappointment, at least you got to see the frog dance and got a sense of accomplishment. It's not a demo, more like a first short game to see if I could make one and now I'd like to make a second game which would be pretty different, to explore a new genre
hahaha, THAT is awesome ! Thanks for letting me know that it went all the way to China ! I can't understand a single word that he's saying but his acting/editing is hilarious :D
An excellent game!
The animations were all very fluid and lovely. I enjoyed trying to solve the puzzle, and though I was sorely tempted to just look up how to solve it, I'm glad I didn't. I actually thought it through, and got the ending where the frog fella lives! I won't get the other one, tho, I don't want him to die! I especially like the warrior lady and her tea.
I would love to play a full game with similar mechanics to these!
Thanks for holding on till the end O-Gin ! :D That's a very nice feedback you give me here, and you're not the first to say the horse lady is your favourite... that's funny, I thought the little robot with the party hat would get all the love :)
You're welcome :) Maybe it is because the horse lady is so easy to understand. Her first action is hitting, and second is drinking tea to hop her up, so she does real damage. Easy to put together XD
But for everyone else, you have to link their actions all together-like frog's trumpet charges the sorcerer's bubbles, and robot breaks the sorcerer's bubbles. But horse lady stands on her own. Sorta!
I tried to play the game, but at a certain point the images stop and I can not see anything anymore, but the game continues to work as if nothing had happened.
P.S. using high performance graphics I had no problems, but I do not understand why with the default graphics it has problems
Hi Dart, sorry that you experienced difficulties running the game with your default configuration...
It is due to the game being fully animated, and to me not being a skilled programmer, so it's certainly not perfectly optimized...
I hope you still were able to run and enjoy the game though !
Such an amazing little game! I love the visuals, very creative :)
amazing. such a simple concept, and so engaging
Hi Jacob Peter ! As many mentionned here, I got the puzzle-combination game design from Eyemaze's Grow games but I'm glad I managed to do something engaging with it ! ^^
Cool visual style and nice to play!
Hey, thanks for your comment Chandeskee ! I'm really glad you appreciated the cartoonesque vibe I put into it ! ^^
its really nice to play something like this!
i didnt know there are hint after my friend played it. it took me 5/6 tries to figure out a way.
SPOILER ALERT: DONT WATCH IT IF YOU WANT TO FINISH IT YOURSELF!
thanks Coconut Mousse for having played the game and making a video capture of it ! You did it pretty fast, I'm impressed ! ^^
but still, i cant figure out the second ending :P any clue?
you got the hardest ending right, so that should be quite easy... You just have to mess up the order a bit so that the frog wouldn't be protected (the endings are not that different from each other so you won't be missing out a lot if you don't get it)
I like this a lot. It's a nice mix of logical and lateral thinking for a puzzle game. The handrawn animation was quite nice. The way the decisions and events progressed over time reminded me of Eyezmaze's GROW games. Considering it's probably been almost a decade since I last played those, that was a pretty cool flashback of nostalgia to have. Good job all around, I hope to see more :)
Eyesmaze has made more grow games since then, I reccomend checking out the new ones!
So I'm not the only person that immediately thought of the GROW games!
I didn't realise they were so well known.
I just bought this game, but it's unplayable on my laptop. :'(
oh really Calliope ? Sorry about this ! please send me details of your configuration so I can look into it ! Are you on PC, Mac or Linux ? Is there any error message ? I'm looking into refund options in case we can't make it work on your computer
I am on PC, there is an error message of "Can't create a OpenGL 3.3 Rendering Context" followed by another message immideiatly after saying "Your system's graphic drivers seem not to support OpenGL 3.3/OpenGL ES 3.0, sorry. :( Godot Engine will self-destruct as soon as you anknowledge this error message" I'm not super sure what details I need to send, but my laptop is a five years old or so samsung, with pretty much everything standard still in place aside from a replaced hard drive.
Please try to update your graphic card's driver. You can also e-mail email@example.com and request a refund.
Hope this will work ! And again, I'm sorry for this mishap Calliope !
Is there only one solution?
nope Jojo, there are 2 : one in which the frog dies, the other where it lives. But the endings are pretty similar :)
OK, I love this little game, but I am stumped. I think I have tried every combination. Can I have one hint please? Thanks.
well, the hint would depend on what stucks you. And I'd rather not post solutions here, so send me a PM and I'll try to help you subtly :)
It is amazing! Really digging the art style, animations and gameplay. Very excited to see what future updates bring and how the game is further improved
