Monkey Mansion

Monkey Mansion video game Developed by BaboYago and published by BaboYago

Developed by BaboYago and published by BaboYago

Monkey Mansion is a multiplayer co-op horror survival game for 1-4 players. Your mission is to obtain the priceless relics hidden inside a lavish 1920's Russian mansion. Recover them all without getting caught by the old pet proboscis monkey that was affected by the maniacal rituals performed there.


You can run but you can't hide from the giant possessed monkey that is left to roam the mansion of its mysteriously deceased owners. Your assigned objective is to steal the enchanted relics found inside and contain them in an expensive "Power Dampening Container" accommodated by the big bucks of the government agency that hired you. You cannot, however, grab any relic that you desire. Each one of them relies on the power of and is protected by another relic, except for one, due to some other unknown presence inside the mansion. Find keys, unlock rooms and passages, and work together in order to stay alive and complete the mission. Just make sure that if something feels wrong, RUN. And don't look back.


You and the monkey are not alone. After a disastrous ritual was performed in the mansion, all of the residents went missing and the monkey was left behind. It seems as though a powerful entity had taken over it, causing it to go through strange transformations.


As you try to take something belonging to the supernatural, you're in for a ride.

Beware of the demon...

When you are detected to have stolen a relic, the demon behind this madness will leave the monkey's body and chase you by itself, introducing a whole new set of problems.

It gets harder and harder...

As the game progresses, both the demon and the monkey get faster and more powerful.

Work together...

Use the medical syringes that are scattered around the map to revive your fallen mates, unless you are playing on your own.

Go again and again...

Not only are the moves of the AI impulsive and unpredictable, the items, keys, and relics are found in random locations every time you play, providing you with a unique experience over and over.
