Renowned Hunter

If you'd like to support development of this game while I continue to expand on it, I'll create an NPC in the village with your name (or a name of your choosing). They could be a blacksmith, a chef, or whatever you'd like! You would be helping me as I develop this game further, and you'd become immortalized in the world of great beast hunters.

Community Copy

In the aftermath of the OGL kerfluffle, I would like to be part in offering alternative fantasy games for people to try in an effort to help introduce people to the world of indie games.

After The Great Beast is a beautiful tribute to the world of Monster Hunter!

Being able to make your own weapon is a unique aspect to this game but I hope that in a future update we will have the chance to see more options for them and maybe armors as well.

Now I want to put on my scale armour, my Abyssal Gravedigger bone sword and go hunt down The Great Beast! Great job Jay!


Aw Thank you! I haven't worked on armor yet but I've been going back and forth on whether or not to work it in, and since there's interest I totally will! 


I started working on rules for armor today :3
