'Monster Crown' Steam Early Access Update Adds New Features

by Rainier on Aug. 28, 2020 @ 10:21 a.m. PDT

Monster Crown is a dark monster catching game with true crossbreeds, featuring a brand new dynamic breeding system and a deep story in a world filled to the brim with optional content.

In Monster Crown, players can catch and tame all sorts of monsters and even breed new species with them. Breeding or fusing monsters in Monster Crown creates brand new species that can be named by the player. These crossbreeds are truly a mix of both parents in every way.

20 years ago, Crown Island was ruled by the sadistic, monstrous Philosopher Kings who used dark magic to inflict suffering and exert their tyranny. A group of young people rose up, overthrowing the Philosopher Kings and bringing peace back to Crown Island. Now, a dangerous young woman is trying to get her hands on the Philosopher Kings’ power.

Unravel Crown Island’s dark, cruel story as you create your own monster legacy. With a history of sadistic rulers and heroic saviors, the island faces another threat in the form of a malicious young woman seeking power. It’s up to you and the monsters you make pacts with to prevent the return of tyranny. Will your decisions make you a savior, or a dark messiah?

It is up to the player to travel across Crown Island with their monster companions to put an end to the dark, underground plot.

Studio Aurum introduces three new features to the game: online monster trading, NET Eggs and the ‘Move Learner’. Players breed ‘surprise’ monsters, let their monsters remember a new set of skills and trade with other players. This content pack is the first of multiple planned content updates during its Early Access period on Steam.  

  • A NET Egg lets players breed with a random monster egg, which contains monster genes from players all over the world. The egg serves as a wild-card parent, resulting in a surprise monster.
  • The ‘Move Learner’ allows monsters to remember a new set of moves from its large roster of attacks. Monsters can learn a lot of moves, but they can only remember six at a time. Now players can select which moves their monsters remember at any given time.
  • Lastly, online monster trading lets players exchange their monster creations with the world.  

Monster Crown is available through Steam Early Access.

Key Features:

  • Make pacts with monsters to receive their protection in return for shelter
  • Breed and fuse over 200 base monsters to create your own new species
  • Travel across Crown Island with your monster allies to uncover a dark world.
  • Make a pivotal decision that will drastically change the ending and post-game.
  • Play online to battle and trade, and have your new species reach across the globe.
