thanks!

Yes i plan to release a demo, hopefully this year still.

yeah you can have have 3 active in combat and 6 total in your party (also getting the exp from the combat) - before every combat you can choose which 3 you use. You will also be able to switch them mid combat, but that will consume the turn for the switched in monster.

Besides your party you can have unlimited (or a rather big number) of monsters, but you can only interchange them with your current party at specific locations in the game.

Recently i reworked the start combat screen, making it look more flashy, readable and display more information.
You see some of the monsters preselected by default, if you just hit "start combat" that will be your setup if you don't want to waste time. But you have always the option to select specific monsters to counter your enemies.

Also here is a gif showing the process of how collecting new monsters works in Monster Sanctuary: By having good combat results you can receive rare items like monster eggs. Those you can hatch to receive new monsters. The player should be motivated to play the combats strategically and efficient.

thanks Smiley

I've worked on a new Monster recently: Catzerker.



He will be a high physical damage dealer with skill tree revolving around critical hits. Also he will have earth and wind elemental attacks.

Just registered to say I really love what you've done so far! Keep up the good work. Any ETA on a demo? I think most of us would enjoy a taste of whats to come!

Looking very nice. I'm a sucker for smooth parallax scrolling. UI is tidy too. Smiley

This is a really cool idea, I'm interested to see what comes of it. Was your Golem (in the first post) inspired by Legend of Mana? I've always loved the golems in that game, even if they weren't terribly useful.

Thanks for the motivating feedback Smiley
@Alboreo: Yes it was an inspiration, Legend of Mana was a great game (as well as the predecessors)


I have worked on a Title screen:

Iterated a bit on the title screen (sped up the title intro animation, changed the menu intro animation, change a bit the background composition, iterated on the mech golems steam particle effect)

I really like the looks of this game! Especially the Pokemon aspect without really being more fantasy than Pokemon. I would find a different transition effect (The light fade into letters one.) for the title and battle just so you have a little more variation. (Of course keep the current one.)
Just look for some ways to change it up some.

Oh, right. What software are you using to make this? (I'm sure it's been asked already.)
If it's GML (Game Maker Language) I'd like to talk to you about how you did the mini map.
