What is it?
Super Man Or Monster is an exciting new 3D third person action game. The player chooses if he or she wants to fight as a MAN to save the world, or as a MONSTER to destroy it! As a man, it’s a great mix between a shooter and an RTS game: Build your army. Blast monsters and fly around with your jetpack. Kick ass. As a Monster, it’s a bash, stomp and beat ’em up: Wreck the city. Bring chaos. Let your inner monster roam free.
What’s so super about it?
The original Man Or Monster is a Unity browser game we developed for Miniclip.com. We’re now taking the development to the next level by adding all super 16 bit retro stuff we didn’t have time for. At this moment we have lots of new content and a pretty awesome splitscreen mode! Besides all the fancy fullscreen effects we can now do! We’re hoping to release in 2017 on PC.
Back in October 2013, our friends at Miniclip were really keen on doing a Minecraft-like game. We examined that style closely, but realized that we didn’t want to just copy the look. So we investigated how we could make it more our own thing. This meant that we kept the cubic style, got rid of the low-resolution textures and added a nice bright retro style to it. And of course, lots of bullets and explosions! We’re big fans of 8 and 16 bit games and we hope that we created something that brings back those days, only now in glorious 3D!
The game was a great success on Miniclip when we launched in 2014 and even won a Dutch Game Award for Best Browser Game. Over the course of 2015, we’ve been adding loads of cool stuff (we even did a VR demo!) and doing a lot of polishing already. After quite a long break , we resumed production in 2016 to implement another cool feature: the splitscreen mode!
Now it’s summer 2017, and the latest thing we did was introduce a cool retro new look for the game. As you might know, we’ve also been busy working on the browser multiplayer game, ManOrMonster.io. We’ve just showcased the game at the indie festival Indigo and got a lot of great feedback. Now, hopefully, we can finally wrap up the game development 🙂 Seriously though, we want to be 100% happy with the game when it releases, so we hope you can be patient with us.
