The art is impressive : it's very expressive and colorfull, I like how the characters seems all unique ! Also it seems fun to play.

Still I have a few questions :
- Seems that all characters have their owns stats ? But do they also have their owns sexual orientations ?
- Which kind of monsters are available in the game ?
- Can you make a playable character date another playable character ? (outside of the "date the same NPC" system ?) (I suppose not since I went on the website ^^.)
- Will there be kisses CGs so I can fangirl =3 ?

Anyway, keep up the good work : it seems already amazing. Congratulations.

I'm excited to see how things progress. Good luck with it all :D.
Hi! (:

We're aiming specially for the local-multiplayer experience. Right now the one player option is basically the same but 1 player instead of 4, and honestly it is not that fun. We have in our list of stuff to study a better implementation of a 1player experience, probably where the game session is longer.
We can promise nothing, but we have this in mind!

Thanks for your kind words! (:

1. Thanks a lot for your kind words! <3
2. We hope it'll be fun to play! (:
3. No sexual orientations. The game is non-binary. They don't like boys or girls... they like people. They preferences are not defined by gender, but by traits. Demian might feel attracted to a bolder people, while Liam appreciates someone being smart and creative and for Polly being funny is a turn on.
4. No, you can't romance other players. Well, you can if you want, but not in the game :$
5. There are 11 chars now: 4 are playable chars (Frankenstein's Monster's bride, zombie, djinn and darkness/death/not sure), 6 love interests (vampire, werewolf, demon, mermaid, ghost and gorgon) and 1 shopkeeper (cat-human)
6. This is one of the things we're looking when asking for funding on KS: more CGs and more secret endings. Now secret endings can't include your playable char because that'd mean multiplying secret ending CGs x4. But we'd love to.

Thanks a lot! (:

What's your fav char right now?

As I told before, the game is meant to be played with friends better, but down in the pipeline after the Kickstarter we have planned tackle the 1p game experience to see how we can improve it, since keeping the same flow as for the local multiplayer version would has as a result it being maybe too short for a solo ride.

Ugh, Damien is always such a bigot!

Not, really I'd love for people to fell in love with the chars. I'm not talking only about romancing them (that too); but the overall idea. As said many times before, Monster Prom seeks to be similar to a TV show. Game sessions are rather small (45-60') but overall depth can make you play 10 times before you encounter 2 same situations, so the goal is for the players to have such a fun time they want to go back to the 3 weeks before prom again, to live all new situations, uncovering new layers of the 6 classmates and the whole nonsense that is in this crazy highschool.

I want people to say stuff like "damn, I just want to see what new crazy adventures will Polly live this time" and things like that, u know? I hope I can achieve this by beautiful art and superb narrative. I (and my team) will do our best ò_ó

I have a question, man...

Do the playable characters have their own personalities or will everyone be a blank slate sort of thing? If they do have their own personalities, will those affect the kinds of choices that you can make?

Well even if she was the absolute hardest, I'll do my best!! QvQ Also, why have a separate single player mode if it affects what you wanted to do for multiplayer? I'm sure people could just select multiple characters to play multiplayer mode but alone, too. I know someone who did that with the Yawhg... xD

They are blank slates. You determine how they are. We want players choosing character not feeling pressure on any kind of strategy. Choose the one that you like the most.

Anyway, we convey some personality through design and various illustrations, right. I have even this personal document where I develop internal lore on how all chars (include playable ones) behave and how their relationship is, if no players played the game. Like... Ok, everyone can romance Polly (the Party Ghost), but if Monster Prom was a TV show... which chars would be romantically related to her (including playable and non-playable chars). But this is only because I've grown attached to this universe and I want it to be as solid as possible.

Let me be clear: Monster Prom presents a world of absurd and blunt reality where everyone lives crazy situations and always at some point someone is a bit "douche-y" with everyone. Vera being mean, Damien being angsty or Polly being happy but selfish (ok, there are some exceptions... Scott is maybe the purest character). But at the same time, in this universe, even if they reject you with a pinch of cruelty (sorry... failure has to feel like failure), my idea is that these 10 characters are, in the end, good friends.

I wanted to convey this through the credits, if I get enough funding. I wanted to create some cool credits with an original track and lost of CGs of all chars doing nice young stuff together, like partying together and going to the pool and whatnot. I want to convey the magic of being young and feeling like there's no tomorrow and still you're living in eternity.

But game-wise, the playable chars will work as blank slates, yeah. Stats between players will depend on the gameplay and it will be set differently from start through a silly initial minigame (an absurd pop-quiz).
