The modern world can be a terrible place, but you can either rise above the negativity or become a part of it. That's the idea in Always Sometimes Monsters, the debut title from independent developer Vagabond Games, which now has a release date of May 21 for PC.

Always Sometimes Monsters follows a player's journey through the many obstacles of life and allows them to proceed through it however they please. The game's unique twist is that any of these events can just as easily happen to you at any point in your everyday life. So what choice will you make for your character?

Those heading out to PAX East can check out a playable build of Always Sometimes Monsters at the Indie Megabooth. The game is also up for pre-order right now on Steam.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      So this is Requiem for a Dream in 16-bit RPG form?

      ...could be interesting.
