London, UK. (Wednesday, January 22nd) Nuy Media
are pleased to announce GIGANTIC ARMY, an homage extraordinaire to
16-bit era mech-shooters such as Cybernator / Assault Suits Valken,
Mech Warrior, and Front Mission: Gun Hazard, will release on
Wednesday the 5th of February 2014 for the PC (Windows).
GIGANTIC ARMY is a side-scrolling mech-shooter set in a 21St
Century war against the Ramulons – an alien race determined
to stop humanity’s advance into space.
The war against the Ramulons has reached the planet Ramulon
itself and it is now down to YOU to pilot the 'GMR-34 SALADIN' - a
Manned Combat Robot - and take on the Ramulon army. Customize your
arsenal of explosive, projectile, and plasma weapons, and combine
them with melee attacks, thrusters and your shield to take the
fight to the enemy and end the conflict!
Developed by ASTRO PORT, the studio behind of critically
acclaimed SATAZIUS, and fully localized by Nyu Media for its
western debut, GIGANTIC ARMY is a heartfelt tribute to the
mech-shooters of the 1990’s, boasting awesome retro arcade
stylings, slick animation, superbly detailed mech, boss and stage
design, and addictively frenetic game play.
