A monstrous crossover
Developer Beautiful Glitch announces a free update of their latest game, Monster Prom 3: Monster Roadtrip. Launching as part of Steam’s upcoming Scream Fest, the update will include a crossover with the main character of Massive Monster’s hit Cult of the Lamb. The crossover update was revealed during ‘The Indie Horror Showcase’, organized by DreadXP, The MIX, and Youtube channel horrorvisuals on October 19th.
Monster Roadtrip, a multiplayer narrative adventure with survival mechanics, sees players embarking on a road trip alongside fan favorites Polly and Scott, visiting more than 60 different locations and picking up hitchhikers along the way. The game’s new free update will feature Cult of the Lamb’s titular Lamb as a hitchhiker in several original scenes. Additionally, players will have the chance to pursue the Lamb as a Romance Option and unlock a special ending.
Despite Monster Roadtrip and Cult of the Lamb’s differences in gameplay, the crossover serves as a major opportunity to display the games’ shared sensibilities. Cult of the Lamb’s mix of horror, adventure, and black comedy turned it into one of 2022’s most successful indie releases, while Monster Prom 3: Monster Roadtrip expands on the franchise’s much-beloved blend of comedy with horror, fantasy, and sci-fi tropes.
Monster Roadtrip’s free update will launch at the start of Steam’s Scream Fest on October 26th, 10am Pacific, on both PC and Switch. For the duration of the event, players will also have the chance to purchase Monster Prom 3: Monster Roadtrip for a discounted price.
