Sometimes Always Monsters
RPG Thursday, 02 April 2020
The sequel of Always Sometimes Monsters that lets us learn the further adventures of the original’s protagonist (allowing us to import save games). This time around, we start out as a young, married author of a bestselling novel. Looking for inspiration for another book, the protagonist embarks on a bus tour through the country, making new acquaintances with his fans and fellow writers. Similarly to the first installment in the series, Sometimes Always Monsters puts emphasis on interaction with non-player characters. In the game, there is no combat system whatsoever; instead, we have to constantly make difficult decisions. Player’s choices shape the story and the protagonist’s relationships with other people and influence the number of available options—the decision to take his wife with him alone can open or close some story possibilities. Sometimes Always Monsters features two-dimensional pixel-art graphics which are, however, more detailed than those of its predecessor.

Sims can also control the minds of others and feed on their life energy – another way to regenerate their strength is to rest inside a coffin. Note that transformed characters shouldn’t get exposed to direct sunlight, because these can weaken or even kill them. The Sims 4: Vampires also brings along a brand new location (Forgotten Hollow), with such features as a grim graveyard, new interior decorations as well as extra customization options for Sims – some of the things that you can adjust are the length of fangs, skin complexion and eye color.
