The season of spookiness is upon us, and a funny, lighthearted, multiplayer dating sim featuring overly thirsty monsters could be a perfect way to get in the spirit for Halloween 2020. Until recently, there was maybe, like, one game that could fill that niche. That changed on October 1 when the release window for Monster Prom was announced via the game’s official twitter account.
The sequel is called Monster Prom 2: Monster Camp and, although it doesn’t have an official release date, it does have a page on Steam where people can download a demo or add the game to their wishlist.
The first Monster Prom is a very rare example of a game that is both a dating sim and a party game. In it, players use their stats, items, and personality to hopefully land a date for the prom. A game of Monster Prom can be very brief, but a lot can happen in it.
The sequel is set in a summer camp and will allow characters to meet characters like “Dahlia Aquino, the buff, blue goddess,” and “Calculester Hewlett-Packard, a machine who learned to love.” In addition to the new setting, the game will also contain new mechanics.
The first Monster Prom was initially available for PC but was later ported to the Nintendo Switch alongside its expansion, Second Term, for a title called Monster Prom XXL. Regarding the release of Monster Prom 2: Monster Camp, the developer has tweeted, “just to be clear: it’s coming out on PC first. Consoles may happen later.” The PC version is set to release on Steam at some point in October 2020.
