Monster Prom 2: Monster Camp Reviews
Looking for something super spoopy to do this Halloween? Or, you know, NEXT Halloween? This may be your jam and jelly.
Everything is vastly improved from Monster Prom 1, which already was a super game in its own right. It is a lot more clear from the very beginning who your chosen love interest is, the choices are a lot more clear in what logic paths you need to go down, and it is a lot more forgiving with stats.
I also enjoy that there are filters for how immature or dark the humor gets, which I wish a lot of other games would do, as well, purely from an accessibility standpoint.
I’ve been playing Monster Prom since it came out, everyday enjoying it more and with more and more friends. So when I heard of a Kickstarter for a sequel… I couldn’t pass up that opportunity to help make that dream a reality.
After the time I’ve been dedicating to this great game on the last couple of very busy days, I can say with full honesty that Monster Camp is just as enjoyable (if not more) than the OG game. The writing is phenomenal, as expected from the great team behind Beautiful Glitch, and the art looks gorgeous. The characters are charming, and almost all jokes land amazingly, making the experience (of even absolute rejection) enjoyable.
I deeply love this game already, and can’t wait to see what new content and magic the great creators of this franchise keep bringing to us. After all, we’re young, unafraid and ready to start!
PS: I’ve received the game for free after pledging on Kickstarter a year ago.
Monster Camp is a great sequel in every respect. It takes and improves on pretty much everything that we had in Monster Prom, without it feeling like a rehash. The game’s mechanics are fairly similar to first game, with new fun interpretations of how to implement them as for example, you don’t take the quiz anymore to determine your stats, but instead picks from an assortment of essential (?) items that you’ll need (?) at camp. This could be seen as a downgrade if you really liked the quiz, but it does fit very well into the aesthetic and theme of being at a camp.
The writing returns with even more wacky and funny storylines to explore. It improves a lot on the already great writing from Second Term. With the introduction of the new cast and the return of our favourite library computer and spicey red baby, gives us a great opportunity to experience new dynamics with some of our favourite characters and the new ones. This means that Monster Camp keeps its freshness, especially because the writing can still find ways to surprise the player even after so many events.
Monster Camp is a great buy for anyone who liked played Monster prom and even for those who haven’t played it, as there are ways to turn off and tweak the settings to suit your taste and needs. It’s a great game that I would recommend looking into if you’ve thought about it.
This game is SO DAMN GOOD. All of the characters are amazing with fantastic writing. Some encounters have made me legitimately burst out laughing for minutes at a time. The drinks in the game add a fun twist to the mechanics, to either help or ruin your friends. All the characters have their own voice actors, but also an option to turn off voices so you and some buddies can make up your own voices for an extra layer of fun. It is the best (and only) Multi-player dating sim I’ve ever played.
Loved Monster Prom, great and really funny short form dating sim. Monster Camp is a great sequel and expansion to the first game. Writing is still really fun and funny, I really like the being able to date the more background characters from the first game while still having Damien and Cal around, and Milo might be my new favorite character. What is a bit of a downside is just how literally and explicitly horny this game is, like I’m down for a horny monster dating sim, but I don’t need the game constantly (like literally every scenario) calling me horny, thirsty, etc. It makes the game feel more one note than the original, which had notes of more romantic, and even platonic feelings, where as this one is just kinda sexual. Overall still really great.
TLDR: You are better off just playing the first one if you already haven’t.
Oh boy, where should I start. Ok, I absolutely love the first game. But I have to say that Mon camp is not nearly as good and it’s kind of sad, since I was really looking forward to this. You are better off just playing the first one.
1 . The game locks you with one character for the rest of the game, when in the first one you could change if you didn’t like the options the game recommended. Now if you get stuck with one you don’t like, you have to either suck it up or restart.
2 . The cast is very weak compared to the og cast. 3 of the dateables have very similar personalities, all of them being very aggressive and stabby. It makes the game a bit bland since the first cast was such a mixed bunch.
3 . So much unnecessary text and dialogue oh my god. Trim it a bit so people have the patience to actually read it out loud with friends and actually concentrate. There must be a way to make it shorter yet still comical. Now it just feels like a wall of text for a “haha random” factor.
4 . Just a personal preference, but the game is so much hornier in a tasteless way than the first one. I don’t mind raunchy humor and jokes but I feel like they overdid it here a bit.
5 . The game launched as bit of a too much early access to me. No gallery etc. Some features are still not ready and stuff. They could have honed this more before publishing, I’m sure the fans wouldn’t have minded.
Let’s end up positive (Pros) :
1 . The drinks system is fun and refereshing. I really digged that.
2 . The old main cast characters are still gold. So far I’ve had the most fun playing Damien’s route. His interactions and dialogue just felt most like the good old mon prom. But at the moment I think his interactions are also still missing voice lines which made them feel empty.
3 . Milo.
4 . More side characters and some of them are actually really good like Counselor Flodge.
I will update this review if the game ends up getting some major updates that change my stance here.
But we’ll see, since my biggest issues at the moment are in the long boring dialogue and the main cast they chose to go with.
All The Good Names Taken
Monster Prom was a great mix of stat building visual novel and party game about asking monster people with mostly horrible personalities to prom. I love the idea of changing the setting to summer camp and they didn’t really need to make any major mechanical changes, so I figured this would be an easy slam dunk sequel. Alas, other than the setting it’s a step down in almost every way.
It stumbles from the get-go with a really odd decision to arbitrarily change the cast. Monster Prom had six “datable” characters with very distinct personalities and a whole host of minor NPCs in the base game as well as two more major characters in the DLC. Camp has six characters again, all of which were in Prom and two of which were major characters. That’d be fine if the cast was as distinct as in the first game, but three of the six speak in all caps and try to kill everything in all of their scenes, two of the other three were deliberately annoying minor characters before, and the last one almost literally never showed up in our game. Even if you enjoy the individual characters more than I do, it’s hard to see how half the cast having almost exactly the same personality won’t be grating.
After stumbling with the cast, it proceeds to face plant by giving you an unclear joke decision in the opening menus that effectively locks you to one character for the whole game without a warning that it’s doing that. If, like me, you get one you can’t stand, then you’re just stuck with interacting with almost no one else ever. Half the fun of Prom was competing with the other players for the same characters and screwing each other over, but if you make different decisions at this random point literally a minute into a 90 minute game, then there’s just none of that. You’re each basically playing your own separate game from the on, and even though there are interactions after that, they don’t matter at all.
If Camp had come out first, I’d probably say it was a great idea that needed some refinements and more varied writing. As it is, the game it should be already exists, came out years ago, and has a cheap DLC that pushes it even further beyond. This isn’t necessarily a bad game, but there’s just no reason at all to play it over Prom unless you’ve fully exhausted that game and still want more of this setting. I ended up refunding.
I originally saw this game and its predecessor, Monster Prom, several years ago when Game Grumps first played it and while I only bought it recently due to the sale and Camp’s release, both games have consumed my thoughts all throughout this week and I haven’t had this much fun playing games in a long time. There is something for everyone whether you want to pursue your favorite love interest or screw over your friends in the most hilarious ways possible! The writing is very funny and the creators are devoted to listening to the fans and making each game improve with changes over time! Definitely consider checking out both games and DLC if you want to have an unforgettably fun time!
I would call this a huge success from Beautiful Glitch “So Fun!” lol. I loved Monster Prom and Monster Camp is an awesome sequel. I love the characters, the stories, winning, losing, it’s all an amazing experience. Beautiful Glitch never ceases to make me smile with their charming and, at times, heartwarming writing. If you like dating sims, you’ll probably like this game. If you like party games with your friends, then you’ll probably love this game!
I know I’ve only just scratched the surface of this game, and I know there’s still a lot to look forward to, I’m having a blast already with Monster Camp! Getting to know these new characters and reconnecting with old ones feels like I’m meeting old friends for new shenaningans. And if you haven’t played the original Monster Prom (which you definitely should), the customization options are super user friendly, so you can play the game and not be confused by a random callback to the first game, not to mention if you find certain topics offensive or triggering, you can hide those scenarios altogether. Definitely interested to get the hang of the new “Drinks” mechanic, and find all the hidden endings! Got a pretty steamy one with Aaravi already ;)
I fell in love with Monster Prom years ago, and it just captured my needs for chaotic antics, hilarious and unique characters, and an all around good vibe. Definitely helps me keep fresh as a voice actor too, especially playing together with my friends! Love the art style and creativity that went into this project, and I can’t wait to keep playing :D
The addition of content filter options is appreciated, as the humor of this game amps up that of its predecessor to a degree. There’ve been improvements less than a week after release for clarity as to which filters are turned on. DLC costumes do not have that luxury, unfortunately, as I ended up with them accidentally on for our first playthrough, thought that I had turned them off, and found out that I had turned off the option of the default outfit options somehow. Could use a pass.
This is a blast to play with a group of people voicing all of the characters.
The writing and art are as excellent as ever, the variety of events and outcomes is a delight. There are enough new features to keep things fresh - stat determination via selecting three out of nine random options of ‘camp’ supplies is humorous and allows for a substantial amount of freshness. New music tracks to mix things up are a big improvement.
The attention to detail and amount of character art devoted to even what appear to be one-off characters is absolutely incredible.
A big concern, being that so far I have streamed and acted as a cursor for several other people in my friend groups, is that the secret endings appear to be tied to the drinking mini-game that happens periodically. Without multiple controllers plugged in, you are instead offered a random drink (out of many possible ones), or the option of a mystery box for a second chance. For those pursuing a recently unlocked ending, this might entail countless additional attempts being required to even have the opportunity to play through that side plot, let alone possibly succeed at it.
Even for short games, each love interest’s required stats seem to be comparably high to those of Monster Prom. Success probably requires the clarity of several playthroughs.
The credits are killer, also, dang.
They took everything that felt smooth in the first game and improved it. I feel like trying to get scenes with your romantic interest is much easier in this game and that takes a lot of the guesswork out of playing which is great. The exclusion of currency is great, less grind for special items for your ending!
The events seem like they’re a lot more varied, I haven’t been seeing the same one over and over again as often. The drink mini-game is pretty interesting, I like how it can spice up a playthrough pretty quickly.
The game feels super solid and I can’t wait to see what more Beautiful Glitch has planned.
Having been a big fan of the first Monster Prom game I was excited to pick up the new Monster Camp game on release day and it was so worth it! The camp theme is so well executed, and the character dialogue is so rich! Even the art work is just to die for! I could not recommend it enough, as it is a very enjoyable, very content heavy dating sim! The adult humour especially, alongside the monster characters, makes it the perfectly hilarious, but also makes you fall in love with all the characters so much more! Despite the fact I’ve only managed to get a date with Damien out of the four games I’ve played, it is a fantastic game!
Looking forward to getting more secret endings, meeting more of the npcs and enjoying camp life!!
I normally wait a while before I review games and sometimes I’m too lazy to write a review but this time I wanted to because this franchise has been a part of my life for so long and I want to see it continue to grow and get even more awesome!! Now for the review: I gotta say that I am loving the new editions to the cast of romancables especially Milo and Dahlia. They both amuse me in different ways. There’s something in this game for everyone. This game has gotten my bf who doesn’t play visual novels to consider buying this one! It’s so much fun to play by yourself and others! I’m looking forward to when the gallery opens up and we get more voice acting so I can fall even more in love with these characters! Beautiful Glitch gives us so much for so little so I am very happy to support them with future DLCs!!
Okay. I’ve been playing this game A LOT and I think i finally have some coherent thoughts.
On the surface, and even on your first 10, 20, maybe even 30 playthroughs it really does feel like “different” Monster Prom, but with something else there that is kind of hard to describe, which is kind of what drove me to keep playing.
What piqued my interest in the original Monster Prom was Jesse Cox’s involvement, who I have been following online for a…. long time. I found Jesse from the Saint’s Row 3 playthrough with WowCrendor when I was like 12 or something and been a fan since. What I’m trying to say is I went into MonProm not knowing what to expect, and what I came to find was a fun and humorous game….. for about 20ish playthroughs, which is kind of dull for a party game. I couldn’t tell why I didn’t have any drive to keep playing cause I hadn' t done everything yet, but alas even with the amazing lovable characters and even the modtool I put a little under 30 hours into MonProm and didn’t look back. That really isn’t me discounting Monster Prom, do not get me wrong I love that game with all of my heart, I don’t put 30 hours into some games I absolutely adore! After a while it was like there was nothing else left for me at Spooky High.
Then information starts coming out about “Monster Prom 2” and the Kickstarter drops. I download and play the demo and it looks nice but it seemed like reskinned Monster Prom so I decided to not buy into the Kickstarter (and I honestly regret that choice because I really want those anime outfits omfg). Anyway, some time passes and the game releases, which I didn’t realize was even announced. I thought that id get it before it goes off its launch sale and try it at some point. However later on release day one of my friends buys the game and streams it to discord for us to play together. And to say I was enchanted is an understatement, everything was o familiar but the subtle changes made me feel so lost at the same time, and I was loving it. All new secrets, techniques, and mechanics to discover were what initially drew me in and made me buy the game instantly after finishing. The changes made to this game, such as the new characters, MUCH improved writing and dialogue, and the new mechanics like drinking make this installment not only more competitive, but overall has more soul.
100ish hours strong sunk into the game I don’t see myself walking away just yet, unlike with the first game, the sequel always makes me feel like there is something to come back for. I’ve played all the big game releases this year, Doom Eternal, Last of Us 2, Half-Life Alyx, you name it; but overall Monster Prom 2: Monster Camp is my game of the year.
I have put truly so many hours into Monster Prom. It’s such a delightful game, with wonderfully witty writing that I just keep going back to. The characters are all really well fleshed out, and I love all the twists and turns that come with each game. It’s never the same game twice, there’s truly enough content out there that I haven’t seen even half of it yet. I was obviously very excited, therefore, about Monster Camp. I’m one of the kickstarter backers because of how much I believe in this game, and I was not let down. I got to play the beta, and that only served to get me more excited and hyped up for the full game. There’s still so much more for me to do, so many more characters to woo, scenes to read, and sexy outfits/victory scenes to drool over. There’s so many wonderful references, from the original Monster Prom, to Popular Culture such as The Hunger Games, to general camp cliches. So many more background characters than in the first game, and I know I’ve barely seen any of them yet. I’m super excited to continue playing this game, to discover the depths of depravity it can bring me to.
Wow, just wow Beautiful Glitch you have outdone yourselves. I have been a fan of the Monster Prom series ever since my friend introduced it to me. I own it on both the Switch and Steam. Monster Prom 2: Monster Camp is phenomenal! You took all the silly/raunchy humor from the first game and DOUBLED IT! I haven’t gotten to play that much yet but already love the game!
As for gameplay, the gameplay is just like Monster Prom (so those of you that liked it will love this) with some new twists. One twist in particular is the drink minigame. For some reason I just do not understand how it works, however, still fun. I just mostly take the gamble instead of using my skills.
Fantastic game, simple yet hella fun. Especially with friends. Although I still love playing it even by myself. For those who want to have a nice chill video game that is sure to entertain and please you look no further.
This game is so much fun in a different way from monster prom. The game play is different in that it sometimes prompts you to put in answers to questions that are then put into the game’s storyline which allows for an even more personalized game. I enjoyed that there were more romance options in this game and that it did not stick to the main 8 from the last game. My one critique is that in the game there is a spot where you can get a drink either at random or using your skills which you can decide on how you want to get your drink. However, I had no idea how to use the skills approach as it did not give a prompt or instructions on how to do that part of the game. Other than that one critique I’d say that this game is easily becoming addictive and the characters definitely grow on your quickly. It’s a beautiful game!
I don’t even know where to start!
I appreciate Beatiful Glitch for the efford they put into this game and I totally see the improvments compared to the first game.
I have never seen such an awesome company, that even includes fanmade stuff. I feel honored to be part of this wholesome community.
I wanted to start off by saying how well written all these characters are!
This game really pushes you to take a deeper look at all these interesting campers and their well-structured characteristics! You just fall in love with those dorks in an instant!
With interesting characters comes filthy and horny humor. I can’t even describe how hysterically I laughed at all these jokes! This whole game (and the previous one) is so cleverly well written, that I bow down to the creators for the creativity they put into Monster Camp.
And don’t get me started with the visuals and animations!
This Game has such a stunning artstyle and THE ANIMATIONS… they are just made for a cartoon show (I would be overjoyed if this turns out to be reality).
And if you ask yourself if you could get bored with this game after playing it for some hours…
Let me tell you how wrong you are!
This game has way too many events, outcomes, new drinks and even secret endings to count!
Please give this game a try and decide for yourself if it’s your type of game or not, but all that I can say is, that THIS is truly a masterpiece!
Did you like Monster Prom? You’ll like this even more.
Did you not like Monster Prom but through it had good ideas? Try this out.
Personally I really enjoyed Monster Prom and made the choice to kickstart this game. I couldn’t be happier with what my money went towards. Honestly it’s just an overall improvement of Monster Prom. I think the humour and characters are even better and funnier than Monster Prom. My current 10 hours played on this game featured no repeat of events and was played all in one night with friends across multiple games.
There are some features currently missing but there are promises to update the game to include them, the gallery feature is probably what I am most disappointed about being missing but from past performance I am sure it will be added in sometime soon so I can check out all those sweet CGs whenever I please.
Overall it’s a fun time both single player and multiplayer
