After early success on Steam, retro Pokemon inspired creature capture / taming game Monster Crown has its first major update available now and it sounds exciting.

This first and rather large content update introduces three new game features: NET Eggs, the 'Move Learner' and online monster trading. A NET Egg lets players breed with a random monster egg, which contains monster genes from players all over the world. The egg serves as a wild-card parent, resulting in a surprise monster. The 'Move Learner' allows monsters to remember a new set of moves from its large roster of attacks. Monsters can learn a lot of moves, but they can only remember six at a time. Now players can select which moves their monsters remember at any given time. Lastly, online monster trading lets players exchange their monster creations with the world. 

Gotta make a pact with 'em all!

All three new features together already change how you play the game, so can't wait to see what else they have cooking. Impressive from a new and small indie developer, it's shaping up quite nicely.

"Unravel Crown Island’s dark, cruel story as you create your own monster legacy. With a history of sadistic rulers and heroic saviors, the island faces another threat in the form of a malicious young woman seeking power. It’s up to you and the monsters you make pacts with to prevent the return of tyranny. Will your decisions make you a savior, or a dark messiah?"

Feature Highlight:

  • Make pacts with monsters to receive their protection in return for shelter.
  • Breed and fuse over 200 base monsters to create your own new species.
  • Travel across Crown Island with your monster allies to uncover a dark world.
  • Make a pivotal decision that will drastically change the ending and post-game.
  • Play online to battle and trade, and have your new species reach across the globe.

You can find Monster Crown on Steam in Early Access. We're also going to have a livestream of it sometime soon, so be sure you're following us on Twitch.
