new kaiju based game "Giga Bash"

Postby spottedming » Mon Aug 19, 2019 11:59 am

Dunno if any of you guys have seen this yet, theres a new kaiju type arena game comin out called Giga Bash, which is being developed in Malaysia. It does seem promising and the character designs remind me of ultra kaiju.

What do you guys think of this? Think its going to be another dud like Kaiju Combat?

Heres the devs twitter https://twitter.com/Tweet_PRG

and heres the company founders twitter that has more footage of the game so far https://twitter.com/NgAikSern

In my opinion it does seem to early to speculate how the game is going to be, but i guess we will all see

Well, it doesn't appear to be a Kickstarted title, so it has that going for it. That little bit of gameplay seems fine so far.
I was just thinking that the only thing missing right about now was a giant crocodile...

What they show off looks fine, but note most of those designs are clear Ultra-Kaiju knock-offs that are way too close.

Image
Look towards the middle of the bottom row, #13 they just took Seagoras`s head and put it on some other body parts.
Far bottom left #11, is Alien Icarus`s head, 7 is just woo, the arms on 8 are gyerons etc....

If this has any chance to succeed that poop needs to stop ASAP.

I like that kaiju design and the graphics and animation seem smooth which is a lot more than could be said for that turd, Kaiju Combat. But like any indie game by new devs, I'll wait for it to deliver before believing any hype.

I think those are concept art for the first (only) kiju they have shown off? Even then, that kaiju reminds me way too much of Red King. I think one of his pwered up forms has those arms?

EDIT: Looked again, they're being transparent about drawing inspiration from ultra kaiju. That was concept art to get ideas for the the first guy.

Also seems like they'll have a presence at Tokyo Game Show from what I can tell?

Yeah I think that's just concept art, but the first model they show is just EX Red King with horns and a different color and Gango`s face.

To be clear, it's not inherently wrong to have a monster roster with clear nods or "notGodzillas", "notKongs" etc...
But when your whole roster looks like you blended together some Ultraman monsters with zero really innovative designs it makes you wonder.

The beam the monster on the right is firing is almost a 1 to 1 of an attack Baltan uses.

Look on the head of number 12:

If any of these designs make it into the final game it’s blatant plagiarism; “homage” or not.

At least it's one more garbage fire to watch.

I mean, the game doesn't look bad. It's again just an issue of the designs. I'll have to wait and see until we see more monsters.

I don't see an issue with this?
Is it original? No.
But it has charm and I miss Monster games like these.
My only fear is that it gets stricken with Feature creep and gets canned.

The Zetton Baltan fusion looks cool, but I am hoping that they change up the designs so it doesn't look super obvious that it's ultra monsters. At least make some Showa Gamera looking monsters. :lol:

The little piece of gameplay looks neat.

The gameplay or at least the camera system is really remensicent of War Of The Monsters

I do like the classic Showa aesthetic they are going with on the Kaiju designs, I really like that. They did put some thought and research into the designs

It might actually be pretty cool!

I’ll admit based on that big white furry monster things are looking better.

Agreed. How that guy can feel proud of that disaster annoys me.

Still a bit iffy on the designs, but LOVE the looks of the game and am gonna just overlook all that.
