Happy Friday tamers!
Content Pack 7 is HERE!!!!!
The other half of the monsters from the Frostbite vs. Ferrorizer competition are now in, in total, the following monsters can transform:
As well of course as the next chapter in the Monster Crown story! If you're all caught up in the current story you're looking for three legendary beasts, and the second is now here! (the first was available in Nio Kio as of last Content Pack). Start your search in Frobec and try not to end up bitten in half!
This content pack is particularly nostalgic for me, as you'll be returning to an area familiar to fans following us since the early days, the Frobec Mountains were featured in a very early alpha demo, I hope those of you that remember those days feel just as surreal returning to those stomping grounds!
Next month's content pack will expand to the third power, tucked away deep in Appenton :)
This update also brings:
Brilliant monsters now bless the team with a temporarily boosted growth rate by 10% when leveling up in battle or using scouting.
Ton of new attack animations
You'll be prompted to confirm when you decide to save, a much requested change.
Plenty of polishing and bug-fixing.
A while back Ahab's Artwork approached me about the idea of a fan manga for Monster Crown. I was really flattered by the idea. I've poured a lot of work into building Monster Crown's world and lore, and who wouldn't want to have the opportunity to see their world expressed in manga format?
I decided to commission Ahab's Artwork to produce an official pilot manga for Monster Crown. This 6-page manga pilot follows a courier and his Monster Companions during a day on the job in the dangerous Desperado Province. You can grab it here:
The manga is currently pay what you want and you can decide on $0 and grab it for free if you wish,
right now we're using the reception of this manga to gauge the viability of producing a more normal length manga series in the future, following a tamer and their monster companions on a full length journey. While my focus will remain entirely on core development of the game for the forseeable future I'd definitely be involved with establishing the storyline and ensuring the world aligns with my vision for Monster Crown's world during pre-production.
I hope you enjoy the pilot!
