My Singing Monsters
Noggins are basically musical rocks. Deeply in tune with the earth, their simple rhythms echo an island’s pulse. The sensation of reverberation produced by a Noggin motivates all other monsters.

Description

The Noggin is a small gray golem-like monster. Characteristic features include large green eyes, three-fingered tan humanoid hands and feet, a rocky outer texture, a completely flat head, and a severe underbite.

Interestingly, Noggins' hearing is very poor, owing mainly to the fact that they have no ears. Instead, this Monster is able to "hear" through sensitive receptors in their hands and feet, which pick up the tiniest vibrations. In this way, a Noggin is able to rhythmically follow the heartbeat of the island and reproduce it by tapping its fingers on the hollow top of its flat head.

When the monster is idle, it stays in tempo by briefly stroking its fingers across its head and slowly stomping its feet.

Song

Audio sample:
Memory Audio C

The Noggin Monster's contribution to an island's song is a percussive tapping, similar to the skin of a bongo being struck with a drumstick. Their hands beat a rhythm onto the top of their heads.

Breeding

The Noggin is the first monster available for purchase in the market. They can also be produced by breeding an unstable combination between a Noggin and another monster.

Earning Rate and Maximum Income

Earning rate is in coins per hour and depends on Happiness % (Likes increase Happiness), also each monster has a limit to how much income it can hold at a time. Increasing the monster's level increases the limit.

Feeding Monsters

Each monster needs to be fed four times before it reaches the next level. Increasing the monster's level increases the coins earned per minute, as well as the maximum coins earned. The food per level is the same for all single element monsters and can be found in this article.

Likes

Every monster has different things that they like. For every unique object that they like that's placed near the monster, the monster's happiness will increase by 25% (in other words, placing two of the same liked item near a monster will still only increase happiness by 25%).

Name Origin

"Noggin" is a slang for head. As this monster is mostly head with almost no sign of limbs, its name might come from this informal word.
