Secret runs: dating playable characters, gender swap, and more!
Hi, my dear backers! (:
Woah, I get distracted and then we're heading towards 22k already?! AMAZING!
I mean, the 25k stretch goals seems more than doable right now! I know what you're thinking: can we make it into the 30k stretch goal? Who knows! Let's try to get a big last boost!
NOTE: actually, I don't know what you're thinking. I don't have telepathic powers. Don't get scared.
As always, I have to remind you that we have an ongoing Thunderclap campaign.
Please sign in to help us into getting that last boost to smash some more stretch goals <3

2. NEW REWARDS
Also, a reminder on this one!
Being so close to the end, I decided to talk costs with the artists so we can make some changes to the higher rewards.
As a result, we've erased a couple of rewards and instead we decreased the price of several ones
MOST IMPORTANT: the MONSTERSONA thing seems to be quite popular, so now it has been added at all the higher rewards too!
Now collaborating with the devteam into creating a new item costs 250€ instead of 400€!
Now collaborating with the devteam into a creating a whole new secret ending costs 400€ instead of 800€
Now collaborating with the devteam into a creating a MINOR CHARACTER!!! costs 500€ instead of 1000€
Now there's little to no margin there, but at least we get to create more content,right? (:
3. SECRET RUNS
These days I want to talk about what could be next once we prepare the core experience of Monster Prom. Yesterday we talked about new love inerests.
Today we will talk about secret runs. Secret runs is a stupid idea I had: some kind of mode or extra content that is basically isolated runs you unlock. They have very specific and special conditions that turn them into a fine treat for our biggest fans. They have little to no replayability value, since we would create content specifically for them, so it'd be content for no more than a run or two. If playing Monster Prom would be like watching a TV show (since we're adding enough depth so you can play and play and still discover new wacky situations), the secret runs would be like the special episodes, you know?
Let me share with you some of my ideas for secret runs so far:
- A run where you play as some of the NPCs and pursue the love of the playable chars! (this one is the one I'm the least sure about it)
- A gender swap run where everyone has his/her gender swapped!
- The attack of the background chars: there are silly chars in some of the backgrounds of the events. In this run, these chars start to complain about our chars stealing their spotlight. They try to become the heroes of this run!
- The groundhog day thing: in this run, the chars start to realize that they have been repeating the 3 weeks before Monster Prom again and again. They try to figure out why is this happening (maybe... A CURSE!?!?!)
(who are these guys? what's their story?)
As you can see some of these ones are pretty doable (the last one), some of them require some extra content (the 3rd one) and some of them require A WHOLE LOT OF WORK (1st and 2nd ones).
Do you like the idea? Sometimes I think it's just stupid and sometimes I think it's pure genius. Not quite sure.
Once again, thanks for all your support!
I'm amazed by all the people that is believing in us! We're so close to the 25k mark! So... maybe we can make it into the 30k stretch goal before this ends?
