UPDATE: Man or Monster has been unleashed! PLAY NOW!

Are you a man… or a monster?

Do you want to smash buildings to bits with your bare hands, crush your enemies between your mighty feet, and blow helicopters out of the sky with your fiery breath? Or are you the kind of person that wants to command tanks, grab your gun and soar high above the city in your jetpack, taking on giant, skyscraper-sized monsters?

Soon you’ll be able to, in our new game Man Or Monster, coming exclusively to Miniclip.com!

Man Or Monster is set to be one of our biggest titles of the year: a 3D action game with big city environments, massive monsters and retro visuals. It’s two games in one: you pick your side, man or monster, and then your mission is either to save the city… or destroy it. There’ll be multiple colorful, destructive environments for you to fly/stomp around, plus a host of power-ups, side-missions, collectables and customization options.

As you’ll see, Man Or Monster has a voxel art style with great chiptune sounds and lots of nods to classic video games. We’ve had a lot of fun making it, trying out new ideas and seeing what works to make the game look and play as awesome as possible.

Man Or Monster is still in development, but over the next few weeks we’ll be bringing you regular blog updates from the game’s developer, as well as giving you exclusive behind-the-scenes access to how the game is shaping up. Make sure you subscribe to our blog and follow the @miniclip Twitter account so you don’t miss out on the latest monstrous news!

The game is set for an early summer release – in the meantime, here’s a few screenshots of how Man Or Monster is looking in its current build, and a couple of views of the monsters themselves…

You can either tower over each city as a monster, or zip about it as a man in a jetpack.

The monsters really ARE huge - fortunately you can fly up to their eye level and perch on buildings to get a good shot at them.

  1. This, if it turns out to be multiplayer, could bring a whole new dimension(Pardon the pun) to one-on-one gaming. If multiplayer is not part of the plan, please add it soon after release.
