It isn't easy working for Mr Massive Monster, bump into him before he has had his morning coffee, and you are likely to get eaten. So why do it? Why do his loyal pets bravely put their lives on the line each and every day? No, not because they are heroes. Well, yes, they are heroes. But that's not the only reason...
Creativity and style are at the beating heart of all our games. We hand draw our art to give it that personal touch that can only be achieved when there is a direct route from mind to pen. We want players to have fun and to use their own imagination to tell their own stories.
We love including humour in our games, surprising players & diverting their expectations. We let our imaginations run wild, and we hope to spark our player's creative powers as well. It's all about embracing those wild ideas that are within us all.
What's better than going on a big adventure with your pals? Defeating massive monsters, collecting loot and pulling off crazy moves! We're all about that at Massive Monster and aim to create only the mightiest of adventures.
