Green Man Gaming continue their efforts to bring curious indie titles out in the open. Announcing War Tech Fighters - crudely stylised as WTF - at their recent demo event, we're looking at a maniacal mech brawler that hopes to bridge the gap between anime and Hollywood in some respects.
With Drakker Dev at the helm of the title, Green Man Gaming have signed on to secure publishing rights of the group's rapid-fire mech action game. Promising hundreds of customisation options, it could very well be the Gundam game we've always wanted yet never had the pleasure of playing.
Heading into Early Access later this year, they're also likening it the possibility of Michael Bay tackling the classic Evangelion series - a possibility now that he's wrapping up work with the Transformers series. Offering up the first few hours of the game's promised campaign mode, you'll start your assault against Zatros far earlier than those who'd rather wait for development to wrap up before going in guns blazing.
Why Early Access, though? Lead Developer Manlio Greco gave his reasons: "By bringing the game to Early Access, we can fine tune the balance in the game, and deliver an awesome action game for die hard mecha fans.”. Despite only featuring the opening hours of the campaign, Early Access will still bring with it hundreds of ways to customise your mechanical killing machine with a dedicated R&D department in-place to help you upgrade your wares. Gain levels in an RPG manner to increase basic stats and push through the initial 12 missions of the campaign or take on infinite enemies in the Survival Mode.
Pre-Purchase has already gone live on the Green Man Gaming storefront with Steam coming further down the line. Feel the need to take a look? Check out the trailer down below.
