Lyra is a normal teenager studying in a normal school, with a normal family and a generally normal life. One day she finds out that she’s actually adopted, and that she’s not human after all. In this world and time, Monsters may be pretty common, but they’re still Monsters, so Lyra gets shipped off to Munster Academy, a renowned Monster school in their area. There she meets a fellow werewolf, Maiko, and a pompous bratty vampire, Bryce. Join Lyra as she gets used to her life in a new school, with new friends, and a new set of challenges for her to overcome.

  1. I was kinda excited to see a supernatural type VN so I tried to download it yesterday. Unfortunately as the download is close to completion, my antivirus detected it as a virus threat and blocked the download. I don’t know if this only happening to me or there is/are indeed a technical issue to it?

    1. Hello Samantha~

      Does your browser happen to be Chrome? 🙂 It does that sometimes. Actually, it happens to me a lot these days whenever I download visual compressed files like VNs. Haha. 🙂

      You can recover it from the Downloads button in Chrome though. 😀 Don’t worry, it won’t hurt you. Haha.

      Thanks a lot for showing interest! Although… it’s not exactly supernatural per se… haha. 🙂 But I hope you enjoy the game!

  2. Wow I loved this!
    The art is cute and the writing is very good! I enjoyed playing Maiko’s route even though he didn’t have a best ending. Bryce is also nice! The change of attitude was pretty fast but he was so sweet!
    Overall I liked this game. The story specially is very professional. Keep it up, I’m looking forward to more!

    1. Thank you Ailine!

      I know, Roz’s art is so cute! Haha. Aww, I’m really sorry about the lack of a best ending. But I’m happy you still liked it! 🙂

      Professional? Omooo, you flatter me. Hahaha. But thank you so muuuch! Please feel free to support my other projects! Hahaha. 🙂

    1. Hello! So sorry for the late reply. :3 Well, I’m not exactly sure, but I don’t think so, since Chromebooks don’t have installed apps I think. 😦

  3. We, the furry fan-base demand a sequel! (Or at least a spiritual successor ^^). ‘Twas not the fact that it was an otome game with your average high school setting but rather that you were able to take it from a viewpoint that isn’t used often, from a “monster’s” point of view. The theme is familiar but the perspective is different from what the occasional vn player “plays”. Gj on this vn and maybe sequels? ^^^^

    1. Thank you so much Leon! 🙂

      Ah, Maiko was actually supposed to be a full-fledged furry! It was kinda my fault why he ended up being more “human” looking. Haha, sorry. Hmm, who knows, maybe we’ll make a sequel? Just… maaaaybe. No promises, though! Hahaha. 🙂 Roz and I are both busy with real life and/or other projects lately, so I guess we’ll just see in the future if there will be a Munster Academy sequel/prequel or something. :)))

  4. Great, fun game! I got Meiko’s ending and thought it was adorable. ❤ The story flowed really well- I liked that it didn't have a (visible) points system. Everything just seemed to fit. The dialogue was also very nice. Thanks so much for this lovely gift!

  5. Wow wow wow!!! Really surprised that this game turns out to be a so very better game than my first impression! This was due to when I start playing, I get so irritated that I (Lyra) kept getting bullied! I was feeling all like “Ugh!!!” And I really don’t have “love at first sight” for the characters’ artwork… But as the story goes on, I found that I start to like them! And finally LOVE them!

    At first, I really hated Bryce! But later on, I found that I like him more and more; unbelievably! Gotta say the going of the story is really very nice!!!

    Btw, can’t help but feel a bit bad at shouting “Leave me alone!” to Maiko back there…… Feels like I betray him or something……囧TZ

    Really love and enjoy this game!!! Thank you so very much for letting me play such a great game!!!

    Oh, and it’s so nice that I could enter my name; feel much more when they call my name, >///<~

    1. Just finished playing Maiko’s route too. No best ending for him??? I feel that I like Bryce’s best ending much more desu……

      Btw, there’s a big mistake after this part: “Maiko and I glance at each other as Bryce and his friends make their way towards us.”, starting at “Well, what do you know.” till “So thank you, I suppose.” should be Bryce speaking, right? But Maiko’s name is shown as the speaker instead.

      1. Whoops, sorry about the mistake! It’s an error on my part, since I did the coding for this game too. Thanks for pointing it out! If ever we expand the game (like, to add another ending for Maiko, maybe?) I’ll keep that error in mind so I can fix it.

        Anyway, thanks again for the comment, Sally! Really appreciate it. 🙂

  6. Actually, I’m very pleasantly surprised to receive your reply! So fast too! I rarely get reply from game creator, which is very sad, 囧~ Thus, the pleasure’s all mine~ >o<

    Btw, I forgot to ask one thing about the story: Very curious to the part where Vampires can read mind, did that mean Bryce's 3 friends also heard everything Lyra said in her mind?

    1. Aww. Actually, I don’t always get replies, too, which is why I try my best to reply to every single comment. 🙂 Besides, I want to let the players know how much I appreciate it that they played something I worked hard on.

      Yes! If they wanted to. It’s more of an ability than anything, so they can “turn it on/off” if they want, so to speak.

  7. Yeah right, I definitely could feel it! I feel very touched when I get reply from game creator!

    Oh, I see! I thought it can’t be turn-off due to Bryce’s saying like “all the monsters in academy learn to not let their thoughts heard by others” and asked Lyra to stop her thoughts from invading him, > <~
