Colossal Kaiju Combat: Bringing giant monster fans together for the ultimate giant monster experience!
Kaiju Combat, officially known as Colossal Kaiju Combat, is a series of video games currently constructed by independent video game developer Sunstone Games and Simon Strange, centered on kaiju.The first full game in the series, The Fall of Nemesis, will feature the eponymous monster from the novel Project Nemesis, from renowned author Jeremy Robinson, as the main antagonist and a playable character, along with many original (and most of which are fan-created) characters.Colossal Kaiju Combat: Kaijuland Battles was released on Steam Early Access on August 11, 2014. It is in an alpha stage, and currently consists of only four characters. It currently costs a few dollars to play, but the final release will be free-to-play.The developers intend to include as many famous giant monsters as possible in future updates, with many fan suggestions ranging from the iconic to the obscure.
This franchise provides examples of:
Aerith and Bob: Kaiju names range from Chelonra, Bakuyoku, and Ouroboros to Duncan, Solomon, and Prospector Pete.
Our Spirits Are Different: The Kaijujin. Not gods but capable of subtle influence, they represent a kaiju's Ferocity, Fortitude, Agility, and Power and can bestow favours on those that appease the spirit of a particular aspect. They are also capable of bestowing enhanced power to a singular champion, and even moving kaiju across time, space, and dimension. They also serve as a memetic "A Wizard Did It" excuse for nitpick details.
Aliens Are Bastards: Ikameijin and Heart Eater are the only aliens in the first game; both have evil intentions. It should be noted that a third of the kaiju voting roster featured aliens, although it seems that the voters preferred terrestrial monsters at the time. Supposedly that dampered the idea of heavy use of alien environments.
Bad with the Bone: Lycanoid can extract and wield bone knives when his nanomachine side is dominant.
Extreme Omnivore: Macrosaurus's personality in a nutshell, to the point of eating space-time.
Fire, Ice, Lightning: DragonLotus, Tornaq, and Tursacra, all of whom fight for the balance of nature.
Killer Rabbit: Katyusha was just a simple mouse that had a sentient bio-mechanical AI grafted onto her. Most of the time her mouse instincts will cause her to evade, but when the AI takes over, it will attack with its powerful cannon.
Meaningful Name: Ikameijin's name translates to Squid Master, fitting as he was an overlord before the events of the first game.
