Monsters & Monocles Store Page is live!
Release date: 2015
Monsters & Monocles is a frantic top-down shooter for up to four players. Use teamwork and your arsenal of weapons to defeat the overwhelming hordes of evil. All the levels are procedurally generated with new layouts, objectives, and secrets each time you play. Collect powerful relics as you play to unlock new abilities, and increase their effectiveness by powering up over multiple play-throughs.

Play With Friends
You can play Monsters & Monocles with friends, wherever they might be. Monsters & Monocles fully supports four player network multiplayer, and for single-screen gaming it supports four player local multiplayer. If you don't want to play online, both single player and local multiplayer work fully offline.

Shoot Everything
Shooting is how you do everything in the world of Monsters & Monocles. Want to open a locked door? Find a keygun and let it fly. Want to buy something from the shop? Shoot it off the counter and pick it up. Need to heal your party? Find the secret tea room, shoot the kettle until the water boils, and make a refreshing cup of tea.

Procedural Levels
From ancient mansions to winding caves to labyrinthine sewers, each environment has a unique feel. Monsters & Monocles has a variety of level generators that create maps with uniquely crafted layouts, enemies, traps, and objectives to match the environmental themes.

Mod Support
We're committed to making the game as mod-friendly as possible. You'll be able to add new characters, weapons, loot tables, enemies, and more.

  • 4 player co-op - supports both online and local multiplayer
  • Every game is different - random levels, bosses, enemies, relics, objectives, puzzles, and secrets
  • Mod support - players will be able to add new content
  • Full controller support
  • Dynamic lighting - everything from torches, bullets, and explosions add light and color to the world

Is this multiplayer/coop only, or can it be played single player?

I met with one of the developers of this game today at EGX Birmingham and it was fantastic when I played it, the developer I spoke to who, I regretfully cannot remember the name of was a lovely fellow, gave some helpful advice and was so eager to answer our questions.

To say a little about the game in the short amount of time I could play it (I had a mask on so I couldn't see much to be any good at playing it, but I could appreciate the graphics) The graphics were lovely and the gameplay was addictive, great for co-op and fast paced, the controls felt very natural in my hands, that's my bit.

I played the first two levels of this game at an indie event in Sacramento California. I met with one of the creators of the game, and let me say, it was a outright blast to play. The game is face-paced,colorful-explody-fun all wrapped together. Good work on this guys, I hoe to see more games greenlit by RetroDreamer.
