Kerberos Productions has announced they are delaying the release of Kaiju-a-Gogo until 2015, after successfully being funded on KickStarter in July.
Creative Director Martin Cirulis consulted his team before making the decision to delay release.
We initially projected a release in late November. But as an independent team we have the freedom to exercise our own judgment. We have a good game here, but we saw some ways that we could make it better. And we all felt that putting in some extra hours now would be a good investment in the game’s future.
Kaiju-a-Gogo is a hybrid of light strategy and action genres, with gameplay that is described as “Evil X-Com Meets Evil Genius.”
Players takes on the role of a Doctor N.E. Farious, a Mad Scientist who has built a giant robot dinosaur called Ginormasaurus-the first human-controlled Kaiju in the world. While the world races to counter his genius by building up their defenses and preparing to strike back, Doctor N.E. Farious and his staff of helpers have a five-year-window to use their Kaiju to achieve world domination. Players goals in destruction are not only to gather as many resources as possible from the ruins, but also to get back to the secret base before the rallying armies and air force defenders become too much to handle.
This single-player game features an interactive world map, where players choose their target cities and monitor their condition, a secret island base where you build facilities to enhance players Kaiju and develop new ways to destroy opponents, and lots of real-time city-bashing attacks, where players and Ginormasarus wreak havoc on cities around the world, from Paris and Tokyo to Albuquerque, New Mexico.
It was also revealed that there will be several Kaiju DLCs in the future, each featuring a new Mad Scientist and a whole new set of skins, powers, and challenges. There are also plans for a DLC called “Monster Island”, where the player will be able to seek and possibly capture additional Kaiju.
Kaiju-a-Gogo will be available for PC via Steam iOS and Android, with other platforms to follow.
Despite this announcement, this hasn’t stopped the company from release several screenshots of the game.
