Existential RPG Always Sometimes Monsters has updated itself with a new demo on Steam that comes full circle.

The demo will let Always Sometimes Monsters demo players be game journalists, going to a review event for Always Sometimes Monsters within the demo itself. You’ll be able to “interact” with in-game journalists and the in-game developers, and even write the in-game review.


These quotes will then be shared amongst other demo players as a mixing of the real and virtual worlds.

Always Sometimes Monsters was released in May this year by Devolver Digital and sets you as a person who’s hit rock bottom and discovering your beloved’s about to marry someone else. The choices you pick and what you do then, set against a ticking time clock, will give you endings which may or may not see you reunited with your lost love.


It also touches on a lot of key current topics, including racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, mental health, suicide, child abuse and more. As part of the celebration for the new demo, the game is now on a a 50% discount as well for this week.


Always Sometimes Monsters is out now on PC.

    50% off just 3 month after release… The price that game come out now is practically a scam, it’s really just there so that they can milk out the early adopter more and can give really big discount to entice people that normally wouldn’t buy it, because people (me included) are sucker for discount no matter the actual price.

      It was 9.99 dude. You aren’t losing that much.

      Since when were good deals considered scams? They’re obviously trying to get more people to buy it, that’s the whole point. If you buy something because of a discount alone without looking into the game, that’s your problem.

      • meiam

        The scam isn’t the good deal, the scam is the original price, it’s purposefully set high so that they can later on heavily discount it.

        At this point buying indie title on steam at full price is just throwing money away.

    I wonder if this will ever see a release on the Playstation Vita or the Nintendo 3DS. I can see this being a perfect fit for them and maybe for the iOS and Android as well.
