Description

A pixel art monster taming game featuring sideview visuals, metroidvania like exploration and challenging turn based combat. As the youngest heir of an ancient bloodline of proud Monster Keepers, you step out into the world to follow in your ancestors' footsteps. You will gather a party of monsters to grow and train. Meanwhile, a series of unsettling events worries the experienced Keepers of the Monster Sanctuary. This is the beginning of a journey to unravel the cause of this mystery that threatens the peace between humans and monsters. Monster Sanctuary is the idea of combining monster taming, turn based combat and metroidvania-like exploration. Any monster you encounter can become a part of your own party. Additional monsters provide a lot of tactical options in combat or allow you to overcome certain obstacles to explore new areas.

History

Monster Sanctuary started as a free time project in 2015. When publishing first game-play footage of the game with many of the postings going viral with people appreciating the original idea, the goal was set to make Monster Sanctuary a full time project.
