Tame Monsters in Monster Sanctuary, Coming to Early Access Later This Month

Harness the power of mythical creatures and beasts in Monster Sanctuary, a Metroidvania-style adventure coming to Steam Early Access on August 28th.

Developed by Moi Rai Games and published by Team 17, Monster Sanctuary takes influence from the Metroidvania genre, as well as creature-taming games like Pokémon to bring a unique side-scrolling experience.

We got our hands on a preview build of the game earlier this year, and it got us pretty excited. With less than a month to go before release, this is definitely one to add to your wishlists.


Explore the Monster Sanctuary, a land where monsters and their keepers have always lived in harmony. The recent arrival of unusually powerful monsters has disrupted the peace, however, and it is up to you to unravel this mystery.

Collect, hatch and grow your monsters to add different skills to your inventory; then engage in tactical turn-based combat, utilising your team’s strengths to exploit enemy weaknesses. Each monster has unique skill trees to put points into, allowing you to customise your team to best suit your play style. The more efficiently you can take down your opponents, the more likely you are to win rare items upon victory.

Monster Sanctuary will be available on PC via Steam Early Access on August 28th. Check out the announcement trailer below.
