'Dawn of the Monsters' (ALL) Collaborating With WayForward, Picks Up Publishing

Dawn Of The Monsters is a co-op beat-'em-up featuring an original cast of giant monsters (AKA kaiju).

Dawn of the Monsters is a couch co-op, brawling action game that takes up to four players on a worldwide tour of destruction.

Players take on roles from an all new cast of kaiju and are tasked with defeating the “Nephilim”, a horde of monsters that are destroying the planet. Conquer four unique worlds and unlock The Maw, an endless onslaught of kaiju brawls.

Featuring beautiful 2.5D graphics inspired by the works of Mike Mignola, combat inspired by classics from the action and fighting game genres, and fully destructible environments, couch co-op in Dawn of the Monsters is bigger and badder than ever before.

WayForward has entered into a partnership with 13AM Games to publish their upcoming giant-monster action game Dawn of the Monsters!

Under the agreement, 13AM Games will continue to lead the game’s development, while WayForward will provide creative support and handle digital publishing, distribution, and marketing duties in North America and Europe.

“From the moment we laid eyes on Dawn of the Monsters, we knew it had the potential to be something special,” said WayForward Tyrannical Overlord Voldi Way. “13AM Games is a phenomenal developer that has been a great collaborative partner in the past, and we are very excited to help them bring this unique vision to life.”

“I’ve been a WayForward fan ever since I first got my hands on Godzilla: Domination! on the GBA, and my passion for the work they do has only grown since then,” added 13AM Games CEO Alex Rushdy. “So it’s not only very exciting but also very fitting that we are partnering up for Dawn of the Monsters. For many of us this partnership is a dream come true! This is our biggest game to date and we’re really happy to have WayForward in our corner. Since they are traditionally a developer, they really understand all the process that goes into making a game, which has made the working relationship smooth and fruitful. We can’t wait to share our work on Dawn of the Monsters; we’re really pushing a bold, new, visceral vision of what a co-op 2D action game can be.”

Further information about Dawn of the Monsters, including specifics on gameplay, features, and pricing, will be revealed at a later date.

Dawn of the Monsters is currently planned for a late 2021 release on Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.
