One of the things that I find most enjoyable about putting together these magazine issues is hunting around for an interesting title to put in as the “Free Pack-in Game.”
Searching around nigh randomly for a game that sticks out and can keep my attention for more than five minutes is always an interesting voyage. I avoid demos and trial versions from bigger publishers and devs, so getting something that can really tickle you all is of the utmost importance.
This is why I am so happy to present this months title. Kaiju Super Datetech.
Ho boy. This one is a hoot.
The basic premise, as described by the dev, is as follows:
“A Giant Monster has appeared in Kyoto II!
The city’s only hope is for you and your company to construct a Colossal Robot, maneuver your creation to the target creature, and… ask it out to dinner? Or a film? Or something?
Cooperate in building a perfect match for the kaiju, and compete against rival companies to romance the lonely monster in KAIJU SUPER DATETECH!”
And what you read there sums up this experience well. Taking the premise of “Why can’t we talk to the monsters?” to its logical extreme is great, and it’s executed well in this game. It’s up to you to help save the world by getting all dolled up for the Kaiju threat. Do you have what it takes to be the sexiest world saver ever?
Developer Powerhoof offers the game on a “Name your own Price” basis, with the ability to play for free! But if you have fun with the title, and got the cash to spare, maybe buy them a coffee?
If you need to kill some time with something that will make you laugh and is fun to boot, head on over to their Itch.io page and give Kaiju Super Datetech a whirl!
