Monstrum is now available!

Well, this is it. Monstrum v.1.0 is now available! No more Early Access, you now have the whole game to die in! We’re still planning some further optimisations as well as the Mac, Linux and Oculus builds too.

We want to take this moment to say thanks to all the people who’s supported us this far, the friends, family, Early Access backers, press, let’s players, streamers, testers, people at expos, people who’ve given us advice and devs local and not so local who we’ve met on our adventures on the high seas (sorry) of developing Monstrum! We’ve probably missed someone out, but without you lot we’d not have gotten to this point, so thank you very much!

And to those of you joining us now, good luck.

Here’s to game number 2!

And now: the patch notes too.
