Articles, Interviews, & Podcasts
Since the launch of the MajiMonsters Kickstarter campaign, we’ve been honored to be invited guests and interviewees of all kinds of gaming enthusiasts around the web. We’ve also seen blogs and news sites share our project in assist our effort in getting the word out there. For that, we couldn’t be more grateful.

They’re also great resource for inside information for the game, allowing you to get inside the minds of the creators!
