MonCon is an RPG in which you take on the role of Joey, a young teenager struggling with social anxiety.  Joey decides to attend one of the largest geek culture conventions in the world, in the hopes of meeting his hero - legendary game designer Mr. Miyashiro - and getting an autograph.

For Joey, a normal conversation feels like a fight to the death.  Through his eyes, ordinary people transform into hideous monsters that must be verbally battled to survive.

But with the help of his newfound friends, Joey will start to overcome his social hang-ups, and learn that not everyone you meet is a monster.


MonCon is still under active development, but this demo of the first couple of hours of gameplay will give you a pretty good idea of what the final game will be like!

MonCon is expected to release in early 2023.

Hey!  I love that your game tries to help players overcome interacting with people!  Unfortunately, I can't get anything to happen during the rhythm-game /conversation portions.  I've tried button-mashing everything on my computer keyboard, but nothing works.  Are there some in-game instructions that I missed?  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!

Hi Tony! Thanks so much for checking out the demo. The battle button controls can be assigned on the main menu if you go to Options, then Controls, then look at the rows labeled Battle Buttons 1 through 4.

It is possible that if you have a gamepad plugged in, then control is being directed away from your keyboard to the gamepad. The assigned buttons shown in the Controls menu should confirm whether MonCon is expecting you to play it with a gamepad or with the keyboard.

Hope this helps! I'm happy to do more in-depth troubleshooting with you if you like.
