While the release of Monster Crown [Steam] may be a while away, this monster catching and breeding game is confirmed for Linux.

Speaking to the developer on their Steam forum, they said this in reply to my question about Linux support:

Absolutely it will! I'm a huge linux fan myself!

I'm quite a big Pokemon fan and honestly, this actually looks like it comes somewhat close while still very much having its own identity.

About the game:

Monster Crown - Dark Monster Catching Game with True Crossbreeds

Monster Crown is an in-development indie title for the die-hards, the monster catching completionists - the battle masters. 

Featuring a brand new dynamic breeding system and a deep story in a world filled to the brim with optional content. Offer contracts to dangerous beasts and breed them to create new species. Travel across Crown Island with your Monsters as you work toward stopping an underground plan to revive the sadistic Philosopher Kings and return them to their thrones


  • 200+ Monsters to Collect
  • Countless Combinations to Breed
  • A Sprawling, Wild World
  • A Deep, Dark Story
  • Online Battling/Trading

According to Steam, it will release on February 1st, 2019. One to certainly keep an eye on, for those of you itching for some good monster catching action on Linux.

Seems fun. Too bad about the gameboy soundtrack. Hopefully music can be disabled. I guess it might be nostalgic to some of you though.

I'm not into this kind of game but I'll add to the wishlist just for this quote

Reminds me more of Azure Dreams than Pokemon, especially with the breeding two monsters together to make a new monster. Either way, this is one to keep my eye on. :D

Funny you say that, because the sound track is the reason it's on my wishlist now xD

Looks interesting, I love the old Pokemon Red/Blue style graphics. Hopefully the game makes it on to GOG.
