Always Sometimes Monsters Turns 5


Five years. Half a decade.

This long, you’ve been our fans, and more.

Every anniversary, we look back and feel both grateful for all of you who played Always Sometimes Monsters, and proud that so many of you managed to find something of personal meaning within our little game.

As time marches on, and we look back at those early days of development, there are still many things that befuddle us. It’s still hard to believe in earnest that the game exists, despite remembering all the long hours that we put in to making it. It’s difficult to rationalize its success, despite meeting players all over the world. To this day, it isn’t easy to accept the support and praise that has been sent our way.

No matter how much time has passed since the game’s launch day, we know that we are very lucky to have had the experience we did. Especially today, not every indie developer gets to find the success we did, and thus we are reverent to our own history.

Looking forward, the calendar is thin.

Next year is an important one.

We are excited for you, the ultimately patient, to finally find Sometimes Always Monsters.

See you in the Discord.

4 Years of ASM


Once you've done something important with your life, it's hard not to feel like you have peaked.

This is particularly common in the world of games that encourages indie developers to put every ounce of energy they have into their projects, just for the chance of breaking through the surface of this crazy industry. 

At the end of the day, we're just some folks who enjoy making games. We were never emotionally prepared for the reception that we got, and have been in a very strange personal space since the release of our studio's debut with Always Sometimes Monsters four years ago. Though, we remain insanely grateful for this amazing position.

Love, Thanks, And Appreciation

Extra gratitude to everyone at Devolver Digital, who took a ridiculous chance on some goofy neophytes with a big dream and absolutely no idea how to make games. Without their support early on, Always Sometimes Monsters may never have come to pass.

Much love to the Indie Megabooth crew, for giving us our first (and many more) chances to showcase our game at so many lovely conventions. Without which, we'd never get to meet any of you in-person.

Finally, infinite love to all of you who ever played the game. Without your passion, and desire to share it with your friends, family, and lovers, we would not be where we are today. Thank you for your grace, patience, and adoration through all of our confusing antics and awkward silences. You're the reason we love doing this.

The Future

We are still hard at work on Sometimes Always Monsters, fully aware of how eager you all are to play the game.

The project has turned into something far larger than we ever realized it could be, advancing almost every aspect of our formula with more depth and complexity. It may be a difficult waiting period, but we promise the game will be ready one day. Until then, we hope you enjoy life to its fullest, and join us for the inevitable launch.
