SECTION A: SYNOPSIS
  • A Monster's Heart is a short adventure game with a linear narrative that focuses mainly on gameplay and story telling. There is only one battle at the end of the game, so if you're looking for a combat heavy game, this is the farthest thing from it. This game was made in about 3 weeks for a game jam hosted on itch.io where the theme of the jam is to make a game where the Monster is the hero. So in that regards, A Monster's Heart takes you on an adventure with a lovable green troll as he makes his way through a small labyrinth of tunnels with the help of a small child named Lynzie to find her lost father.
  • Character Switching Mechanic - Switch between the Monster and Lynzie. The Monster his strong and slow and Lynzie is small and nimble.
  • Hunger System to encourage exploration and push forward gameplay - Food and loot drop quantities are randomized.
  • 30-90min of heart warming gameplay
  • "Parallax" Mapping give the game a realistic yet painted look
  • All for the LOW LOW LOW price of $0.00!

Love the details of your parallax mapping. The plot and mechanic seems interesting. I'll download this one and leave a review on your thread. I hope the game gets the drama right.

You've been hard at work on a fair few games. :D I like the idea of playing as a monster, so I've decided to download it and give it a try. I'll probably rate your game on itch.io afterwards as well. :)

Edit: There's a missing resource error after I filled the little girl's canteen with water from the well. Apparently, a cursor or something is missing.

@OnslaughtSupply That'd be great. I'd really like to continue playing, but having two error messages consantly pop up is annoying.

I loved the intro, it was pretty funny. So far, the only criticism I have is that you clip through loads of stuff, especially in the cave.

Yeah RMMV doesn't handle collisions for very large characters too well and being pressed for time, I was like it's good enough and just pushed on through. Game jams are fun:dizzy:.

Sorry for double post but just uploaded a fix that should work, all I did was add the missing audio, I hope. Truth be told I forgot to include all the audio from the different mini games. Don't really care if I get DQd, it was pretty annoying having that popup every 30 seconds.

Please redownload and just overwrite the old exe. Old saves should work but in case it doesn't, start a new game. I left the page down button to fast forward dialogue on with Yanfly's message core.
