We all know I’m a big fan of giant robots. The one time I’m not so excited about them is when they’re trying to overthrow the world and kill at the humans. Unfortunately, that’s just what’s happening in Metal Dawn. An AI has gone rogue and is causing all sorts of mayhem, sending in waves of robotic troops. Humanity has just one last hope as they try to hack the AI and destroy it, permanently. But will they make it in time? The game is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
We can’t fail… we won’t fail… to stop… the Metal Dawn!
Metal Dawn is a new sci-fi action-adventure cooperative game from Everything Epic (Publishers of the upcoming Big Trouble in Little China the Game, Rambo: the Board Game, Secrets of the Lost Tomb).
Designed by Chris Batarlis (SotLT and Big Trouble in Little China: the Game) and Steve Avery (Nothing Personal, Ta Da) with 80’s, Sci-fi, artwork from Shane Braithwaite and Jim Samartino.
In Metal Dawn, players will have to move around Washington D.C. and protect the hot zones from the oncoming robotic forces of Dominus, a Rogue Artificial Intelligence Defense Satellite that has become self-aware and has decided to destroy humanity. While fending off the countless cyborgs, drones, and exterminators, players must collect intel to use in hacking Dominus eventually getting it to land on Earth making it vulnerable to direct attack. In order to win the game and save all of humankind, players must destroy Dominus in his transformed state before the “Metal Dawn Track” exceeds 10 and Metal Dawn triggers!
The Kickstarter campaign is really close to funding (if it hasn’t already, by the time you read this) with still 29 days left to go.
