Monster Madness Online Playable Pre-Alpha Released
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Nom Nom Games recently released a playable pre-alpha version of Monster Madnness Online, its upcoming free-to-play MMO shooter RPG. In the game players must take up arms to take back their town from evil Martians, working with other players to defeat legions of enemies. The game features more than 70 kinds of enemies, 10 different kinds of vehicles to operate, a variety of game modes, and cross platform multiplayer options.

The citizens of Suburbia City were caught totally unprepared for the Martian invasion! Harnessing the mystical power of Monster Tokens, the evil extraterrestrials sucked all of the town’s adult inhabitants into the Void, paving the way for the Invasion’s second phase, a new Monster onslaught intended to weaken the Earth’s remaining defenses. What these atrocious aliens didn’t reckon on, however, was the Monster Tokens’ inability to affect anyone under 18!

Saved from another hellish day at High School (“Go Wildcats!”), our four heroes — Zack Fowler (the Nerd), Andy Gomez (the Skater dude), Jennifer Sweeney (the Cheerleader), and Carrie Rosenberg (the Goth) — are ready to take back their town from the interlopers.

Added by the always-generous Barry Tools, the kids are on a mission to beat back this insidious invasion, block by block, and then take the fight to the enemy’s mothership and beyond! It’s time to team up, gear out, craft some weapons, and get hunting… in Monster Madness Online!
