Funny concept! Maybe if you add a countdown and put less useful buildings here and there it would become more challenging. :)

Taking part to a game jam with your kids is very sweet. I read that this is the first jam for you... I wish you and your family to continue having fun making games! Me and my friends just started too, and we can't stop already...

I like the concept, I'm just unsure if it was working properly. As soon as I made my monster level go to zero, it never went back up. 


Thanks for playing. I ran out of time to implement all the features I wanted. It's my first jam and I was woefully under prepared. Instead of your monstrosity going back up, it should have been more difficult to lower it. :) I'll make sure to let you know when I have updates.


Hehe, we all know the feeling of running out of time! Cute idea. Would love to see how it would play out with buildings having varying effects. :)


Thanks, Doc! My kids are on spring break next week, so I expect I'll get some more time to jam on it. They have all been contributing to my concept art, so I'm looking forward to continuing the work! Thanks for playing!

Super cute to involve your family! Nice way to inspire young minds. :) I'll check back in the future sometime to see how it has come along.


Then you remember... YOU'RE A MONSTER! haha. Great game.


I, like you, ran out of time. The buildings were supposed to have a purpose other than just their names and you had to find the right buildings to fix the things that made you monstrous. Thanks for playing!


It was really fun playing this because it shares a name with my own entry but is such a vastly different take. I think this is a cool idea and I hope you flesh it out some more. I like the buildings you have in there and thought it was hilarious that I was getting plastic surgery (actually it happened in my first two playthroughs). Great job, congrats on submitting, and thank you again for playing/rating mine!


Thanks for your kind words and your time to play through. This is my first game jam and I think I'll do another one. I want to finish this to be the game I planned. I'll update you when it's done. The building names will be even better once that feature is added! It had to be sacrificed to be able to be done enough to submit.

Totally understandable: "The jam...it claims us all..." Sounds good though! Keep going!


Beat the game in under a minute, I think I found a bug?? Other than that, fun story and interesting game play.


I ran out of time. :) I didn't get to implement the feature that would make it longer. What bug did you find? I have s flyswatter.

Thanks for playing!!!


Ohh i thought the bug was beating it instantly. Either way, well done! 


In a way, you're right. It's a bug because it's a partially developed feature!
