Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake Released For Linux On Steam

A very cute looking game has been released for Linux on Steam titled "Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake" and it actually looks quite decent. It's another Cartoon Network game (the other was Powerpuff Girls) which is interesting to see such a big name support Linux again.

I do wonder if Cartoon Network will keep pushing for Linux games as it would be great if they did.

I didn't think much of the game looking at the screen-shots, but once I watched the trailer I was sold and I now want to spew some rainbows at monsters. The game does look like it's targeting a younger audience, but don't let the charming visuals fool you it's quite a big game.

About
As so many of these things do, it all begins on a magical island. In this case, Gogapoe Island, a place populated by both humans and monsters. What starts out as a mission to get back Niko's birthday cake becomes a quest for the fate of Gogapoe itself. But, ya know, cake is still super important, too!

Oodles of friendly monsters will join Niko's quest and use their kooky powers to help him explore the island, solve puzzles, demolish obstacles, and just generally humiliate enemies. Hordes of evil monsters will cause mayhem and generally be jerkfaces, but that's nothing you can't fix with headbutts, frost breath, stink clouds and rainbow barf.

Save the day and fulfill your monstrous cakelust all at once in MONSTERS ATE MY BIRTHDAY CAKE!

Features
- A big honkin' island to explore
- An epic story of good, evil and baked goods
- Nostalgic top-down adventure gameplay mixed with modern sensibility and design
- A motley menagerie of friendly monsters with nutso powers
- Four unique areas full of challenges, secret paths and birthday cake
- Cerebrum-tingling environmental puzzles
- A whole mess of oddball NPCs with with even odder side quests
- Funky fresh costumes you can unlock for Niko, including some that give him powers of his own

Just a heads up: There's been some kerfuffle about the devs potentially taking heavy inspiration from MonsterUp Adventures, without giving proper attribution / "stealing artwork".

(I personally wouldn't go so far as to use the word "stealing", since they didn't copy & paste the sprites themselves, but YMMV.)

This is ridiculous, the art style is similar, but it’s absolutely not a copy!

I'm so poised to get it. It looks like a lot of fun.
