Cassette Beasts let you play as a character that uses cassettes to record the characteristics, abilities, and forms of monsters, turning you into different kinds of monsters to allow you to battle the monsters you find in the wild. Use empty cassette tapes to record enemies, and use them with your mystical cassette player to take on their forms. Battles play out like a traditional turn-based JRPG, using different skills and exploiting monsters’ weaknesses. It’s like Pokemon but you’re playing as Ditto. Cassette Beasts feature over 100 monsters to choose from and battle with and against, and it also features a two-player co-op gameplay mechanic. The game has a demo on Steam that you can try out, but the best way to enjoy the game would be to get the full game for free through a PC Game Pass.


Cassette Beasts’ story take place in New Wirral, a remote island inhabited by strange creatures you’ve only dreamed of, nightmares you hopefully haven’t, and a cast of brave folks who use cassette tapes to transform for battle. To find a way home you’ll need to explore every inch of the island, and record monsters to your trusty cassette tapes to gain their abilities! Will you be able to use your own nightmares to your advantage to return to your home?
