Gigapocalypse Says Yes To Destruction

Aren’t you tired of being nice? Don’t you just want to embody a giant unknowable monster and just wreck stuff? Well, that’s the idea at the core of Gigapocalypse, and if that sounds good to you, then you’ve probably already rushed off to buy it. We respect that, of course, but if you’re still here, let’s dive into what makes the game so entertaining a little bit, shall we?

Gigapocalypse has you taking control of one of several gigantic monsters, all of whom are generally sick of everything around them, and so have decided to wreak havoc through one of the multiple stages that are available. As you go, your monster gains new skills that will allow you to destroy things in new ways. You’ll even be able to look after your Giga, as they’re called, in cool Tamagotchi-style mini-games. It is, as written on the Steam page, a “loud, punk, metal, anarchy and a lovely homage to the game and movie classics. It´s a game for the kid in all of us.”

The game came out earlier this month, and it’s getting good reviews on Steam, which is good. Better yet, though, is that you can also try out a demo if you’d like to. It’s so nice when games like this have demos, because it means you can properly try it out to see whether or not it’ll be something that’ll scratch an itch for you, or if you’d be better off ignoring it. Either way though, it’s a good laugh.
