We have a giant robot alert!
You probably know I've got a weakness for giant robots. Well, in Defend Neo Tokyo, you and your friends jump into the cockpit of giant robots and look to protect the city against the various monsters that are always drawn towards it. And it's not because they want a nice bowl of ramen. No, you must defend the city against imminent destruction. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Defend Neo Tokyo is a cooperative game of rescue, heroism, and survival for 2 to 5 players. Inspired by our love of movies like Pacific Rim, Robotech, and Robot Jox, "Defend Neo Tokyo" is a game where you are placed in the cockpit of a giant fighting Mech. The base game will come with two monster sets: Giant Radiation Beasts and Sea Monsters.
While fighting the “Radiation Beasts,” you’ll find yourself fighting against giant irradiated monsters, rampaging through Neo Tokyo, focused on nothing but destruction.
When fighting the “Sea Monsters,” you will fight giant, mutated monsters of the deep, who are trying to flood the city and use it as a spawning ground.
The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now. It's set to go for another 29 days.
