Chainmonsters is a massive multiplayer online RPG where you catch, battle, trade, explore, and combine different types of monsters to counter your opponents. Gameplay centers around a new and improved battle system, the cross-platform multiplayer which allows you to connect with your friends and venture across the game world Ancora together.


Development started in late 2017 with a first prototype released on January 19th 2018. Inspired by the SNES classics we were always commited to mix the unique retro style with modern and high-bit graphics designed for the big screens. Chainmonsters takes all the RPG and monster catching mechanics that fans of the genre love and connects them with a new style of tactical combat, a massive online experience and cross-platform play ranging from mobile to PC to consoles.
