Video Game: Giants: Citizen Kabuto
And you get to play all of them (sort of)
Giants: Citizen Kabuto (hereafter called Giants) is a Third-Person Shooter video game with real-time strategy elements, released by Interplay Entertainment in 2000. It was the first game developed by Planet Moon Studios, who went on to make Armed And Dangerous and the Wii rhythm-action game Battle of the Bands.

The cast features a group of quirky heroes and villains including:

  • The Meccaryns: high-tech, cockney, spaced-out space men.
  • Sea Reapers: A race of mostly blue skinned humanoid magic users.
  • Kabuto: a massive protector of the Sea Reapers who turned against them.
  • Smarties: the put-upon locals who provide most of the comic relief in the game and later serve as base builders in the RTS sections.
