San Francisco-based startup, Game Craftsmen, is producing the first real Mech-themed social game. Players build a strong squad of collectable mecha, train their best pilots, join factions, hunt pirates, and face each other on the galaxy’s wide battlefields.
Rich characters and storylines create a world for players to explore and become part of. One unique aspect of the game combines the story with the player’s rankings in the Galactic Senate. This body of top players, separated into rival factions, directly controls the unfolding of the game by voting on new features, special events, or declaring wars and truces among the factions. Active Senate leaders will even be written into the story as galactic history progresses.
The game is in private Beta via Kickstarter now at this
Rewards include beta access, limited-edition mecha, senate seats, and the opportunity to be part of the first and most fun Mech-themed social game.
The Beta is already live on Facebook, coming very soon to Kongregate, the open web, and other platforms.
The game has a strong concept and the core execution provides a fun and addicting experience. As a beta, it has its kinks, and parts of the game have players crying out for expansion and polish, (for example, the quest, mission and PvE mechanics are not yet released) but that’s all part of the fun. New feature suggestions are pouring in, and the developers are actively working and playing with the community. Meanwhile, the gameplay is relentlessly engaging and there are some seriously cool mechs. What more could we ask for?
