Out of money and out of luck, you find yourself heartbroken and on the verge of collapse.

Your landlord’s taken the key back, you can’t finish your manuscript, and your beloved is marrying someone else.

Could things get any worse than this?

You see no choice but to confront whatever life throws at you, so you set out on the open road on a mission to win back the love of your life.

Always Sometimes Monsters is a story-driven experience focusing on relationships and emotional bonds rather than traditional RPG combat and adventuring. It’s a game in which indecision is your enemy and empathy is your weapon.

Live through common experiences and unique hardships based on the nature of the character you’ve chosen. NPCs will treat diverse characters differently which, in turn, will open and close disparate paths through the game.

This infuses each playthrough with an incredible number of paths, triggered by both overt actions and subtle conversation choices, creating unique experiences from one player to another. Everything from the happiness of an elderly neighbor to the actions of a suicidal stranger hinge on the choices you make along the way.

This tale of redemption hinges on you and asks: Can we be salvaged, or are there always sometimes monsters?

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
