As a little kid, picking up your dragon toys, spewing fire, feels powerful and destroying everything is one of the best childhood memories for many of us. Now you become that giant monster in Gigapocalypse, a 2D pixel art destruction game, inspired by classical Kaijū movies such as “Godzilla” and “King Kong” and the game classic “Rampage”.
The game features a selection of different “Gigas” from the Prehistoric era, the uncharted outer space and the forgotten history. Each with unique skills, mutations and manifold skins that can be unlocked with level ups.
Today we announce the PC Early Access release date for their 2D pixel art destruction game Gigapocalypse. On July 22nd, those with an insatiable appetite for destruction can gorge themselves on the biggest monster mashup of the year.
Amplified by pumping heavy metal songs, players will control giant Kaijū-inspired monsters – the so-called “Gigas” – and leave a pixelated trail of destruction. As the Giga evolves, players will unlock powerful mutations, skills, and skins, or even the ability to spawn up to five cute yet evil minions which accompany the Giga on their destructive journey. Unleashing their destructive power on unsuspecting cities, will ultimately bring them face to face with fearsome bosses at the end of each level.
Take care of the Gigas with Tamagotchi-style mini-games and decorate their “home” to unlock more upgrades and make them even more menacing. The full game will feature six beautifully detailed pixel-style locations based on earth's past, present and future timeline, as well as nine distinct Gigas to bring on the monster apocalypse!
