10 Reasons You Need To Stop What You're Doing And Play 'Monster Prom' Immediately

As someone who is highly addicted to visual novels, I was surprised to learn that one slipped under my radar. I have multiple apps on my phone that involve choice-based visual novels. As a college student, they keep me entertained and I don't have to read full-length novels that I don't have time for.

Monster Prom was released in April of 2018 by Beautiful Glitch and is available on Steam for roughly twelve dollars. Not only is it completely hilarious, but it completely enraptures you and keeps you playing for more outcomes. Coming from a renowned visual novel reader, I'm telling you that you'll regret not dropping everything and playing this game.

1. The graphics are cute as F*CK!

The graphics are simplistic, but beautifully drawn. You don't see much other than the characters and the backgrounds associated with the scene, but all of the drawings for each character are super well done.

2. It's an interesting twist on romance genre visual novels.

So, there are a lot of visual novels based on romancing the supernatural, but this one specifically focuses on taking a monster to prom and the build up in order to be able to do that.

3. The love interests are SUPERB!

I absolutely adore every single love interest - each one having their own unique form and personality. Some overlap with each other when it comes to stat based questions, but they're all individually amazing.

You have Damien LaVey, a demon with a love of violence and aggression; Vera Oberlin, a gorgon who is going to take over the (re: my) world with her determination and business ventures; Liam de Lioncourt, a vampire who is nothing less than cool and hipster; Polly Geist, (yeah, you read that right) a ghost who LIVES to party and have a good time; Miranda Vanderbilt, a mermaid princess who is cute as hell but could still cause major damage; and finally, Scott Howl, a tender-hearted werewolf who only wants good things for people.

4. The character(s) you play as? FANTASTIC!

Do you see those little cuties? How can you possibly not want to play as every single one of them at once? You have Oz, or Yellow, the literal epitome of fear; Amira, or Red, who could step on my throat and I'd say thank you; Brian, or Green, a dazed zombie who stole my heart; and Vicky, or blue, a sweet frankenstein-isque monster.

5. You can play with friends!

There's a MULTIPLAYER mode! It's so amazing and as a romance visual novel, the competition can get intense! Just last night, my small group of friends were playing the game and as it drew to a close, we were all screaming and dramatically reacting to the game.

6. The different story lines keep you guessing.

TENOR

There are so many different endings! You might end up with one you've already had, but it only frustrates you into playing again to get a different ending, OR, one of the secret endings!

7. Unlike other visual novels, it involves actual strategy!

GIPHY

The game involves stats for your character that you have to use in order to successfully romance one of the love interests. It can be a lot of work, especially if you're playing with multiple people, and it causes you to actually think about what you're doing before you do it!

8. Damien motherf*ckin LaVey

Now, I love all of the love interests, but Damien LaVey, the demon, completely stole my heart - just as he did to many others. He's strong, sweet when he wants to be, and a total frickin' jester who doesn't realize it.

9. The dialogue is breathtaking.

Literally the intro dialogue and the ending dialogue gets to me every time. It's really heartwarming and can be emotional.

10. It's lighthearted and fun!

GIPHY

The best thing about this game is that it's FUN! There's no serious drama, nothing too heartbreaking, and nothing that emotionally exhausts you while you play. It's supposed to be a game you play for the enjoyment, rather than a lot of visual novels that get really intense.

Along with all of this, the creators add photos that you can unlock and feature fanart in the actual game! I don't advise this game for the weak hearted because it can get pretty lewd and saucy. This is one of the best visual novels that I've ever played and I'm honored to be writing about it now.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy
Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

6958

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
