'Gigapocalypse' Gets Steam Early Access Date

Gigapocalypse is a 2D pixel art destruction game in which you can relive your childhood memories!

As a little kid, picking up your dragon toys, spewing fire, feels powerful, and destroying everything is one of the best childhood memories for many of us. Now you become that giant monster in Gigapocalypse, a 2D pixel art destruction game, inspired by classical Kaijū movies such as “Godzilla” and “King Kong”, and the game classic “Rampage”.

Gigapocalypse features a selection of different “Gigas” from the Prehistoric Era, the uncharted outer space, and the forgotten history. Each with unique skills, mutations, and manifold skins that can be unlocked with level-ups.

Start your destruction spree and destroy everything on your way through different beautifully detailed pixel- style locations. Ever wondered how it looks like when a giant monster destroys a wild west town? Or clashing against the brave Knights Templar? Gigapocalypse has the answer. But beware: Nasty soldiers, wizards, drones, and mechs will do everything to stop you! With each try your Giga will become more powerful until you will finally make it to the diversified, epic boss fights that await you at the end of each level.

Complete quests, take care of your Giga in Tamagotchi-style mini-games, find secrets to upgrade your Giga and its “home” and unlock cute but yet lethal pets that accompany you on your journey.

Gigapocalypse is 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.

Gigapocalypse will be released into Steam Early Access on July 22, 2021.

Once Gigapocalypse hits Early Access, all nine “Gigas” will be added over time in the lead up to the final game. Each one will bring new powers, mechanics and deadly upgrades, increasing the scope for devastation. More locations will be added too, bringing the final tally to six stages set during the past, present and future - meaning your reign of destruction can span across time itself!

Before the Early Access launch, get a taste for destruction right now in the free free Steam demo, which is available to play until Sunday the 27th of June.

  • Nine Gigas with unique abilities and skill trees
  • Six beautifully detailed stages based on earth's past, present and future timeline
