'Always Sometimes Monsters' Mimics Real Life

Ever think you’d make an amazing life coach? Put that hypothesis to the test with new realistic video game by Mashable at PAX, entitled ‘Sometimes Always Monsters.’ The game is structured to mimic real life. Your character starts at rock bottom: recently dumped, broke and lacking inspiration, you have to find a way to get yourself out of a virtual slump.

This dialogue-driven game really illustrates that actions have consequences! Though this might seem a tad depressing, creative partner Amirkhani notes that ‘Sometimes Always Monsters’ gives people a large amount of choice and creative control. Of course there are limits, but since the game is still in development, audiences could be seeing a very realistic game by its release next year. If you think you’ve got a handle on your life, try navigating life for a virtual character with this realistic video game.
