We at Reimaru Files love us some splodin’ mecha action, so when a local game studio tells us they’re making a mecha brawler, you’d best believe we’re all over it.
Flying under most people’s radars last Sunday (no small thanks to the recently concluded Manila Masters), Indigo Games organized a public play test session of Garrison: Archangel to celebrate the launch of its Greenlight campaign. For an entire afternoon, the public was treated to the latest build of Indigo Game’s mecha fighter thanks in part to the great guys over at Cosmic Gorgons.
The studio has held public play sessions before, but the launch event is the first time they’ve showed off one of the game’s biggest draws: mech customization. Attendees of the launch event spent hours building dream mechs and Gundam knockoffs, mixing and matching parts, loadouts and color schemes before throwing down against one another in versus mode with their creations. While the current selection of parts is looking a little lean, the game’s overall polish since the last build is evident.
You don’t have to take our word for it either. They’ve released a playable demo here so you can try the game out for yourself! HYPE.
