Always Sometimes Monsters Demo

A playable demo is now available for Always Sometimes Monsters is now available through Steam, offering the chance to check out Vagabond Dog's throwback role-playing game, which is currently on sale for half-off. They give this the full meta treatment, as the demo places the player in the role of a game journalist playing a demo of the game at a launch party. Here's one of the most offbeat demo descriptions we can ever recall seeing:

Video game media from all over the world are converging on Dubstown to attend the Always Sometimes Monsters launch party hosted by independent game developer Vagabond Dog. The prestigious Daily News Times has tasked you with attending the event to play the game many are touting as an "introspective ethical role-playing game" and write a review for the paper. Can you endure the unenviable torment of interviewing game developers? Will you survive the all-you-can-eat assortment of appetizers and hors d'oeuvres? How much free alcohol will you drink?!

  • Mingle amongst your peers at the event to glean their thoughts about the game or down a cocktail before interviewing the developers.
  • Settle in at a demo kiosk and play a short slice of Always Sometimes Monsters to see what all the fuss is about.
  • Write your review of the game and assign a score which ultimately decides the fate of developer Vagabond Dog forever.
