Overview

Maximum Monster Month! (MonsterMax for short) is a month-long game jam centering on creating games that prominently feature monsters and monster-human hybrids (sometimes referred to as “demi-humans”) as characters! This is our second year: you can take a look at last year's entries by clicking here.

Prizes & Voting

We're happy to give thanks to our sponsors for providing additional prizes for Maximum Monster Month!

First, we'd like to welcome our newest sponsor: Astralore! Astralore are the creators of Monstrata Fracture, which was originally created for the first Maximum Monster Month and has since become a fully fledged project! You can check them out at:

There are two types of prizes: a cash prize and rewards! The prize money of $75 will be awarded to the first place winner (chosen by our panel of judges). The first place winner will also receive a set of charms featuring characters from Monstrata Fracture (solo devs get a set of 3, and teams get 1 per member, limit 5).

The second place winner will receive a hardback copy of Monster Girl Encyclopedia (volume 1) and a deluxe edition of Angels With Scaly Wings! Teams will choose to whom the prizes will be distributed, but each member will still be recognized as a winner.

A third honorary winner will be chosen by public vote based on five factors: characters, creativity, graphics, story, and music. This honorary winner will receive an I ♡ CUTE MONSTERS lanyard (featuring characters from Monstrata Fracture) for each team member (limit 5).

What constitutes a “monster”?

For the purposes of this jam, a monster is any non-human creature (often of mythological or cultural origin), or a part-human hybrid of such creature. Everything from vampires and mermaids to changelings and aliens is okay; go crazy! Original concept races are fine, too (as long as you have the rights to use them, of course)!
