Did you enjoy Into the Breach from Subset Games as much as me? Kaiju Wars looks like it will be somewhat similar as another fantastic strategy game with small contained levels.
Mentioned previously in this article back in early January, Kaiju Wars actually now has a Steam page up to follow it on and there's a whole lot more detail on what you will be doing in the game. The idea is that you're playing the military inspured by some retro Kaiju movies as you're hopelessly outclassed. Slow the Kaiju down with tanks, construct buildings to distract them and deploy experimental weapons to buy some more time.
Unlike the gameplay in Into the Breach, you can't kill them. They are pretty much indestructible and your job is just to slow them down and maybe get them to go away for a while. There's five of these monsters and they can mutate to grow stronger but they do become predictable.
What else to expect from it:
- Embark on a Campaign! - Play missions from all over the world as you progress through the varied campaign. Test your wits in tactical puzzles, command dozens of units in large-scale scenarios, and fend off repeated attacks while developing your city economically in city defense missions.
- Defend Famous Cities - Floatio, Istanboom, Uberlin, New Shark City and Bomb Bay are all under attack! Each city has unique experimental weapons, layouts, and economic projects.
- Thwart the Invader - An alien invader (of course there's an alien invader!) is commanding the Kaiju! Be ready for anything - alien black-ops teams are trying to locate our scientists. Natural disasters such as volcanic eruptions, tsunamis and earthquakes may not be so natural.
