Have you seen him during State of Play today? the golden dragon kaiju bubbling with green light?! It’s Rawa, nicknamed the Dragon Extinction, and one of our new playable characters for our game, GigaBash!
Welcome to our little corner on the Internet, my friend. We’re Passion Republic Games, a Malaysian indie game startup, and today we’re giving you an insight into GigaBash.
Don’t we all have that a childhood fantasy? You know the one where you pretend to be a giant lizard monster attacking a town made of piles of old magazines?
Now, let’s recreate that with four players on the couch, each playing as their favorite kaiju as they battle living bananas against each other in a fully destructible city… It’s GigaBash in a nutshell.
We drew inspiration from classic tokusatsu characters like Godzilla, Megazord, and Ultraman, as well as games like War of the Monsters and Power Stone. This led us to create a roster of 10 unique Titans, each corresponding to a certain kaiju or hero trope and having their own playstyle, skills, and combos to master. Who will be your favourite?
As you fight your enemies, you gain Giga energy which allows you to transform into an oversized version of yourself called S-class. Indulge in the power fantasy by destroying everything on your passage. Don’t stop there, grab the Ultimate Ball to unleash your Ultimate and annihilate your enemies and the entire district.
What’s a Kaiju game without a few collapsing buildings? That’s why we’ve designed each card to be fully destructible. You can walk over, destroy, pick up and throw away every car, bus or an entire office building around you. But let’s not limit our imagination to cities alone.
You’ll find yourself fighting in ancient ruins in the rainforest, controversial military bases in the desert, and more. Each map also has its own unique map mechanic, like volcanic eruptions or… an intercontinental ballistic missile?! Course!
Fight your battle online
Couch-play is the bread and butter of GigaBash, but what if we also want our steak and salad? It’s time to move to online mode where you can fight with other players from all over the world. There’s also competitive play where you can climb the global leaderboards by competing against other players who rival your combat prowess. May your battles be legendary.
Despite the game’s multiplayer focus, we wanted to expand the game experience for the player to include a single-player mode. Thus, the story mode was created. Here, players can experience the characters’ backstory (and misadventures) through four short and sweet campaigns featuring four of our playable characters.
chaos and cold
We strive to make GigaBash easy to learn, fun to look at, and more fun to play. We invite you and your friends to indulge in Mayhem mode. It’s a party mode with a wacky collection of mini-games, crafted to be ridiculously fun for seasoned players and newbies alike.
Although GigaBash is our first venture, we plan to do our best to spread our love for the kaiju/tokusatsu genre and couch games. We are proud to announce GigaBash coming first to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 in 2022! Follow us on our social media for the latest news and let’s get ready for GigaBash.
