In the interest of keeping you fine folks up to date with certain things, and to further show a project that the Shogun Gamer staff holds dear to their hearts, I thought I would give y’all a general update on the Kaiju Combat Kickstarter campaign.
Obviously a few of you out there may already know what Kaiju Combat is considering an in-depth interview was posted on the site awhile back. But for those not familiar to the project here’s a basic rundown: it’s a 1-4 player brawler feature giant beasts. Yup, good times indeed.
After failing to make their initial funding goal during their first Kickstarter campaign, the team at Sunstone Games decided to give Kickstarter another go. Kicking off a few weeks ago, the new Kickstarter campaign for Kaiju Combat has at times been a bit slow to gather momentum, a thing which sadly troubles a lot of cool Kickstarter endeavors, but now things are at that important stage in which only a handful of days are left to raise upwards of $32,000.
So far Kaiju Combat has raised $68,000 of it’s $100,000 target goal, which as a whole is better than what the previous campaign was able to achieve. The recent streak of good luck for Kaiju Combat has been thanks to a few nice folks who contributed $10,000 and the fact that the project simply looks good. Sure, we may not have any in-game footage of the game just yet, but Sunstone has released some more conceptual sketches in the last few weeks that show us what their overall vision of the game is.
Amongst the revealed characters such as Duncan and Moratitan, who will be free to play as in the game, the first boss character in Kaiju Combat has also been revealed. Living up to the formidable look we expect Kaiju’s to look, Nemesis will be the first major boss encounter within the game in addition to being a playable character. Overall the look of Nemesis is exceptional as it has all the classic elements one would expect from a Kaiju yet it doesn’t look like it should belong in an entirely different universe.
So if you like what you see of Kaiju Combat so far then it would be best to visit the Kickstarter page and make a pledge if you can. At this point it’s completely up in the air as to whether the game will make it’s funding goal and of course such a thing won’t happen if people are completely apprehensive about it.
The fact of the matter is if you like giant monsters tearing stuff up and are mega psyched to play a kaiju game after watching the Pacific Rim trailer then it would be wise to give Kaiju Combat a helping hand since it’s truly a one of a kind game.
