Monstrum launched on Nintendo SwitchTM, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One today
Rotterdam, The Netherlands – May 22, 2020 – Gamers should muster their courage, because the critically acclaimed survival horror game Monstrum is now available digitally on Nintendo SwitchTM, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One. The physical release has been postponed to a later date due to the current COVID-19 crisis. Monstrum, developed by Team Junkfish, received glowing reviews after its Steam® release, becoming a horror fan-favourite and being renowned as an indie cult-classic within the genre.
Expect the Unexpected
In Monstrum, players must escape from a derelict 70’s era cargo ship, all while being hunted by a terrifying monster that prowls its barren corridors. Featuring extensive procedural generation; the rooms and pathways of the ship change with each new game. Combining this with a randomized monster that actively searches for you, players should be prepared for the unexpected as they journey through a sinister environment that is never truly safe. There are three unique monsters in Monstrum, each having their own distinct characteristics and behaviours. Only the hardiest players, who are able to identify and adapt to each monster’s behaviour, will be able to escape. Use many of the items scattered around the ship to your advantage, from creating distractions, to accessing areas you wouldn’t have gotten to before.
Stranded on an abandoned cargo ship, you find yourself hunted by one of Monstrum’s terrifying predators; each with their own strategy, abilities, and weaknesses. You’ll have to use your wits to outsmart your pursuer within the ship’s procedurally generated environment as you search for an escape. Death is permanent; get killed and you’ll be starting all over again. Can you survive Monstrum?
● Survive a changing environment and monster with each new game
● Use whatever you can find to outwit the monsters and escape the ship
● Hide, distract, and run, but be careful not to fall into the numerous traps
● Death is permanent. Try to stay alive or you’ll have to start all over again
