Hell is too boring, so The Devil transforms himself into… a monster apartment slum lord! Your building begins small but there’s room for unlimited growth if you manage your monsters right. Attract new tenants, watch them go to work, fall in love and even have children. Keep them happy with the right mix of furnishings and upgrades and they’ll slaughter every troublesome human in sight. However, monsters can also be lazy, stay unemployed and get behind on rent, so you might be forced to kick them out to make room for more responsible monsters. Figure out what your best strategy is and which monsters are worth to keep!

But don’t forget that Monsters are also vicious creatures from the abyss and nearby human settlements aren’t exactly too thrilled with them as neighbors. They will occasionally send adventurers and heroes to your complex to try to kill you and your friends. Rouse your monsters with a knock on their door, summon them to battle, outnumber and trap invading humans in pincer formations, and collect the spoils of victory!

As your triumphs mount and your tenants proliferate, gain gold and prizes to expand and upgrade your building and reward your most loyal and bloodthirsty monsters. However, be careful: your tenants can die, and if that happens, they aren’t around to pay rent. Also, their lover won’t be happy if their one true love dies brutally by your hand.
