Monster Sweethearts is a  free lesbian Monster dating sim set in the rural town of BlackWood Falls. You're stuck planning the Monster Sweetheart dance after being exposed to the existence of monsters. But you, yourself don't have a date to the dance! through 5 different possible routes, you might end up with a very special lady depending on your choices throughout the game.

Eligible Sweethearts: 

Lyell:  Lyell is trusted around the town of BlackWood as a reliable carpenter but keeps to herself in her cabin in the middle of the woods.  Sometimes she has to take a break every full moon from work, no one knows why.

Bae: Bae is the fastest swimmer in all of BlackWood, She loves to spend her time listening to music and hanging out at the BlackWater lake like she lives there.

Victoria: Victoria is notorious for her grand parties that are very inclusive, she's the most popular girl at school after all.  While she's a  mere inane popular girl to some to you she's a childhood friend who seems to be holding secrets about her past.

Xanthe: Not much is known about Xanthe besides that her family is the richest in the town...and that she dated pretty much every girl in school. And it seems like you're her next target.

Lien: Lien has been a troublemaker since she was young considered a lost cause to many. She seems to hold in a lot of anger but for what exactly is left a mystery. It's probably best to steer clear of her.

i've been trying for few days to get past the freaky researcher in the sewers but i have shitty reaction time so i've haven't gotten past him. can anyone help ? is there a way to make the puzzle easier or to skip it completely ?  the frustration i have for not being able to get past this mf is incredible and a huge punch to my ego since, again, i've been trying for a few days lmfao

if you scroll back/page up on your mouse it should take you back to the last option so make sure your cursor is positioned right where the last one was then scroll back/page up


you are an angle my friend !! thank you



TW: Ironic use of the word rizz

So in the behind the scenes/development stuff you get after completing all the routes it's revealed that the secret love interest ,who I will not name because I know people who don't know will probably read this despite the spoiler warning, was actually supposed to have a crush on Jaylene no matter what route you're on but never gets to have her in any ending. But, since everyone loved her so damn much, the developer gave her her own route. 

So basically, she rizzed up the audience so hard "god" had to rewrite her life so she'd end up with her crush lol

Okay so this is probably just a crack pot theory but I’m just gonna put it out there. Spoiler warning!

Okay so I vaguely remember Lien saying that her like extra monstrous out of control form isn’t her actual genes but a scientist’s attempts to “fix” her.

I don’t know if she ever mentions where she was sent to who the scientist was specifically but the way I remember her talking about it, she phrased it as if the place she was sent to be “fixed” was not the same lab that Mrs Jackson is working for or at least not the lab we end up in at the end of her route.

Now baring that in mind, doesn’t her extra monstrous mouth thing form kinda remind you of the creatures Victoria’s dad made? I don’t know if it was intentional but to me they kinda look the same or at least similar, and both were mistakes made by a scientist while trying to achieve something else.

On top of all of that, I’m pretty sure Victoria mentions that it was her dad who introduced her to the monster world after she was put back together, which means that he at least knew of the monster world before then.

Even if I’m wrong about Lien being sent somewhere other than the evil underground lab, Victoria’s dad is a scientist living in Blackwood. It’s almost certain that he does/did work for the lab and/or worked with the doctor that Lien was sent to. That would explain why their works are so similar to have basically made the same mistakes.

Or maybe I’m looking too far into this lol

also while typing this I realized that Lien’s name is just alien without the a lol. I’m just imagining a line from Jaylene that goes something like, “so you’re an alien… named Lien,” had the creator kept the original alien idea


it's kind of a stretch but, i see your point

it's kinda weird Victoria's dad know about the monster world if he's not part of  the scientist experiment


Well it does seem like anyone who's important enough in this world can know about monsters as we see with both the sheriff and, of course, the other scientists. But hey, fixing minor plot holes or just tying unrelated things together are what fan theories are for!

TW: R*pe/SA

Just warning people as it wasn't included in the Content Warning, but this game includes SA, including discussion of a character previously getting SA'd, like, a LOT, and you, the player character, fending off attempted SA.

Found it in Xanthe's route so unfortunately if you want to unlock the other routes you have to go through it, I recommend skipping through her route if that's triggering for you.

I'm not sure if it's in any other routes other than hers, since I had to put the game away after that, and I unfortunately won't be able to come back to it.

I really enjoyed the game up until that section of Xanthe's route, wish I could see the others without having to finish hers!


Hi, the "Otome" tag should get removed. :)


Out of curiosity, why? Otome games are story-based video games targeted towards women, where the central goal of gameplay is to develop a romance with one or more secondary/lead characters. This is literally the definition of an Otome game, and this game meets that criteria perfectly! It's targeted towards female players, and you play as a female protagonist romancing a series of secondary protagonists.

Otomes most commonly feature heterosexual romances, but nothing says they have to be, and many Otome games offer at least one or more homosexual route!


It would be awesome If this game gets a harem route, where you can get all the girls after playing with all their routes.


Everyone's sides are so sensitive in this game lmao, they're just like me fr :p


Just finished all 6 routes this is an amazing story. My fav girls were lyell xanthe and the secret route who I was vying for the entire game 

I cant get to Xanthes route. I've gon through the first 3 and I can't get to her route does anyone know why?

(1 edit)

can someone please tell me how to enter Xanthe's route? I don't even know what i did wrong i just stuck to the 3 option. Lyell Bae or Victoria. please send help. anyone!!

nevermind, i apparently following the wrong order of the first 6 question. i put 331132 instead of 111333. i just pulled a Sierra there for a second. sorry.

(1 edit)

!!SPOILERS!! does anyone know how to start the secret route? I've completed all the routes and all their endings (I think) I've unlocked Liens route so I know I've done Xanthes, Baes, Lyells, and Victorias correctly. (I know I have all endings for them) but I think it might be Lien that isn't letting me progress?? I got the good ending, the one where you give up instinct, the one where you lose your memory, and the one where Lien kills you in the forest towards the start of the route. I think that's all of them but I can't unlock the secret route for the life of me, I also have all the girl's trinkets/items on the main menu.  So does anyone know the reason why?

(Also Spoilers) It's been a while since I played this but what I did was go to just before the common route ended and went back little by little until there's a new option appearing when you speak to Blake at the end of the common route. I completely missed the option when I tried to get it right after finishing everything for Lien.

(1 edit) (+4)(-1)

Please make a sequel to this game! My heart is empty now that i'm finished with this! (P.s can we get more info on Sierra summoning a demon? Did it work??? Also, what happened to her dating Lyell's niece in the other routes?)


does anyone know how i can start liens route cus when i talk to blak she only gives me three options and none of those are lien and it seems if I pick on of the options I go o their route not the on I want

did you get the good and bad end for Xanthe and answer the questions at the start in this order 3,3,1,1,3,2

xanthe isnt even an option to do for me

did you play the first three routes and get their good and bad ends?


Ok, ok... let me put my Xanthe simps on something real quick...

This but imagine Xanthe singing it, you're welcome. 😎

cultured i see


can someone tell me what the main menu items mean/are for and who's correlate with whose? trying to get to liens route but cannot figure out who i need to finish, i have the cassette the cat and the friendship bracelet, thx :

(1 edit)


In order to get Lien's route, you need to complete all the others, which means completing Xanthe's route first. You'll get a little vampire teddy bear when you finish Xanthe's route and thats when you can complete Lien's! (And as for the main menu items, the cat is for Lyell, the cassette is for Bae, and the bracelet is for Victoria!) 

Hope this helps, but lmk if you have more questions :D


going on what ThatGayWolfWriter said, to get the very last girl a.k.a. The 6th person you can date, you need to get all the good and bad routes on every character

I got far into Lyell's route, and the writing started to feel like it was translated from another language. I have no idea if this was originally written in english or not, but it was kinda weird. I didn't notice it earlier in the story, but that doesn't mean it wasn't there. IDK.

Edit: I went back to the beginning of the story, the writing style was there. I don't know why I didn't notice it earlier. 

im aware i need to do victoria, lyell and bae's routes b4 i can do xanthe's, but though ive gotten both bad and good ends for victoria her friendship bracelet wont show up on the title screen? is there a reason for that (like she has two bad ends or smth?)

There is another ending than dying, you just have to be mean to her the whole time

OH ok! i had no idea ty 😭 ill try doing that

No problem! I had a problem with this too!


Oh, it's so gay (◍ ´꒳` ◍) I love the monster x human and the horror aspects! And I also love how there's minigames between it! Though, some routes did get me stuck, but I managed through! The bad endings did hurt (´;ω;`) I enjoyed the game nonetheless! Lesbian/10 (´ ω ` )

Where can I get the art book :d

click the download now button then it gives you options for payment. if you pay a dollar or more you get the artbook.


Did I just see a big smoke reference? That aside, this one's awesome. I especially enjoy Xanthe's route.


Would you perhaps be interested in another proofreader going over the game? There's a lot of typos and things that could be improved in the script. I'm not looking for pay or anything, I just want to help out. I hate to see a good story held back by such things.

will there be an android version?

maybe sometime in the future, I am very busy at the moment. and my android device is locked cause I forgot the pattern...so I can't really test the android release. but someday.

Thank you for answer, I will wait 😊

I need help getting through the victoria route cause in the field she gives me 9 pieces of instructions but there are only 8 turns. My game is up to date. Can anyone help with this please?


she takes the first turn on her own so you don’t have to take that turn.


hiiii i would like to say that this game is so cool i love it and i would also like to ask do the characters have a voice cause for me it doesnt work. thank youuuu


from what i was able to play of this it was a ton of fun!! 

i loved lyell's route a ton!! 

and was having a ton of fun on bae's route too! though because i just can't do the QTE no matter how many times i try(been trying for 3 days as of today) im kinda locked and can't go any further

though no one else seems to be having that issue so i think its just me being slow 

Hello, i have the same problem...

Have you fixed it?

(1 edit)

nope sadly never could get past it

I tried for another week or so before just giving up 

I'm just not fast and consistent enough to hit them so I just kept getting overly frustrated

then I just quit the game entirely because I didn't want to start Victoria's and run into the same thing and since the other routes would stay locked even if I did 

its a shame because really there is not very many true wlw dating sims with like a ton of LI's and stuff 

Oh thats so mean, i am same as you, would love to play, but its so fast. Would love to play Baes Route to the End. Than i must it Quit to, dont come over the second Click. 

Thank you for youre replay :3!

I see that this is a common problem I will try and upload an updated version some time this week or during thanksgiving time

Thank you very much!


I recently finished playing all the routes and I just have to say I LOVE this game!

Every story is so amazing and I love all the characters and I enjoyed every second of it (even Xanthe's route, regardless of how traumatizing lol)

Just thank you so much for making this, it's my new favorite thing <3

I cried in every fucking route, I hate to love this game.  It's make me feels things and emotions are gross.  ;-;


Could you perhaps make/upload the osts used for the game? I've been dying to relisten to the music in the scene where Victoria and Jaylene are about to kiss kiss fall in love and then Mary interrupts them. 


i keep dieing on victorias route lol but cant stop playing aaaa

Are there more voice lines that are going to be added? I don't hear anything from Lexi or Sierra 

wait do the others have voices cause for me it doesnt work

They did for me when I played like last year. I noticed the creator added voice actor so I checked back and not all roles had voices. I'm not sure about now. But I've been waiting awhile for Lexi and Sierra to have voices. I don't know if they're going to ever :(

I absolutetly loved the game, i had never seen an lgbtq game like this aaaaa

but is there any way that we could date Lien? (btw im from Brazil so sorry if i misspelled something)


lol yes lien is one of the main love interest, go here and scroll to the bottom https://llonelly.itch.io/monster-sweethearts/devlog/164669/big-monster-sweethearts-update

this will give you a guide on how to get her route :)


I'm kind of dissapointed by the lack of punctuation going on, and it really detracts from the story, but the plot itself seems interesting so far (a couple hours in).


This is such a weird question but, what is Jaylene's eye color? Like how would you describe it as? There's no real reason why I'm asking it's just that me and a friend disagree on it lol


srry for the late response but this is an interesting question, so early in production, I thought it would be cool for Jaylene to have eye powers so I gave her the unnatural eye color of purple on the bottom of her pupil, with turquoise on top to signify that she has eye powers I guess. but that was later dropped and she no longer has eye powers but I kept the inhuman eye color, but if you played the other routes then it might make sense why she has such an unnatural eye color so it worked out in the long run.

but if Jaylene had to describe her eye color to people then she would say she has a weird form of Central Heterochromia and would argue that the purple is just blue somehow so I'll just go with that then. sorry for long rant jut thought it was a cool question that comes with lore

Ive gotten all 3 items from the first 3 routes and done both their good and bad endings but im still not able to do xanthes? (despite choosing 1 1 1 and 3 3 3 for the choices)

nevermind i had missed baes since i assumed failing the quicktime event was the bad ending ^^

Hi um,how did u get bae's bad end? I can't do it even by choosing the bad choices..


omg this game is terrifying and cute at the same time.

looking forward to see another game you make :D

oh btw do you have instagram? i'm currently making a video edit about lyell and jaylene and i'm wondering if you have instagram account so i can tag you on my video

yeah it’s @_lllonellly_, can’t wait to see the edit 


thank you for making this game!! i finished this game last year and I was in denial of being a lesbian. monster sweethearts helped me accept being  a lesbian and is still one of my favourite visual novels!


I’m so happy that my game helped you come to terms with your identity! (^▽^) so glad that my dumb game about lesbian monsters game could do that! 

What is the answer for Roses question on Xantes route?



Thank you sm, btw i love this game, its amazing, one of the best ones ive played :)
