Description

Monstrum Games is the pseudonym of Dan Stradwick, a designer and programmer living in Melbourne, Australia. Originally focused on free web games, Monstrum is now moving toward downloadable games for PC platforms.

History

Biclops Games

The original Monsters' Den (2007) and Monsters' Den: Book of Dread (2008) were released with branding for Biclops Games. Biclops was a collaboration between Dan and his brother Matt, a shared portfolio website for their Flash games. The site lasted for several years until they decided they should have their own separate identities as developers. Later updates of these games changed to display Monstrum branding instead.

Monstrum

After finishing work with EA on the Flash game Dragon Age Journeys, Dan returned to independent development as Monstrum Games. Monsters' Den Chronicles was released in 2012. Monstrum focuses on games with an emphasis on replayability and procedural generation, embodied in the Monsters' Den series. Dan hopes to continue to create games that evoke the lost golden age of 90s PC releases.
