From the release:
Welcome to 2015
The modern world as we know it ceased to exist in 2003 when the Rift, a mysterious tear in the space-time continuum, opened up and Hell itself spewed forth onto planet Earth. Long-dormant arcane powers and abilities once believed to be myth suddenly manifested in unsuspecting hosts, while those apparent charlatans who truly had a finger on the pulse of the supernatural unknown found their powers doubled or tripled in strength. Creatures that go bump in the night and ancient deities reappeared around the globe to spread terror and destruction. Terrible, enormous, 50-foot-tall monsters with feet the size of automobiles emerged from the oceans, crawled out from crevices, or arrived from outer space for reasons unknown. The United Nations formed an elite unit of the best and brightest soldiers and Specialists from around the world to answer this new Kaiju threat. Meanwhile, greed, corruption, and curiosity drove others to arms in an effort to harness the powers awakened by the Rift and cause further chaos while positioning themselves in places of power. Still others suffered such personal loss that vengeance became their only motivator in entering the fight. And others were driven by belief and conviction, the elements of their faith rejuvenated by the powers unleashed by the Rift. Now, we stand poised on the edge of extinction. A new status quo must emerge, for the very survival of the human race hangs in the balance.
What is Kaiju Kaos
Kaiju Kaos is a 28mm (1:56) scale tabletop miniatures game where two or more players pit their hand-painted metal and resin armies against one another. Kaiju Kaos is a strategic skirmish game. It's not just a matter of lining up models on the table and the person who goes first is the winner. Kaiju Kaos requires cunning and adaptability because at any time an opponent can drastically alter the current situation with an unexpected action or a lucky roll of the dice. A solid strategy and good implementation combined with a little luck will enable the weakest troopers to bring down the mightiest monster. There are various unnamed troopers and specialists to build armies with, but the true heart of Kaiju Kaos is in the characters - whether they're human, Kaijin, or Colossal Kaiju bent on destroying everything in their path.
