Sweetest Monster from Sometimes You and ebi-hime is a visual novel where you’ll meet the mysterious of your dreams. You’ll be taking on the role of Robin Hawkins, a guy who is not having the best time right now. Your relationship with your wife, Sally, has hit a big bump. You’re at a tedious job draining your energy and joy daily. On top of all that, your daughter, Melody, is pretty much a stranger. It’s then that you meet Bell… in the middle of the night! There’s more to Bell than meets the eye, and what at one point seemed like a dream will slowly turn into the stuff of nightmares.

If you’re new to visual novels, games in this genre are ones that do it justice. You’ll be experiencing stories of different lengths either by way of a ton of reading, by enjoying voice acting for characters, or sometimes both. That last one happens if, say, a game has a voice acting in Japanese, and you’re unfamiliar with the language. Sweetest Momster does not have voice acting, and its story is not that long, considering how some games in the genre feature novel-length journeys.

Trophy-wise, this one has a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy for you to add to your collection. The list has 11 Gold trophies for you to unlock, and it’s a really simple one at that. This one is more of a linear experience since there are no choices for you to make along the way, which is not usually the case for visual novels on the console. If you need some extra help, you can check out this Sweetest Monster Trophy Guide.

Sweetest Monster is a visual novel in which you’ll meet the mysterious of your dreams…. or is she the stuff of nightmares? The game makes good use of the haptic feedback on the DualSense, which is not something I was expecting for a budget visual novel. Once you finish the game, you can access the Art Gallery section on the main menu, which offers a good look at the special CG images shown during key parts of the story. Sweetest Monster is out on PlayStation 5 with a $5.99 price tag. There’s also a PlayStation 4 version of the game available for the same price as a separate purchase.

This Sweetest Monster review is based on a PlayStation 5 copy provided by Sometimes You.
