We know Zander Cannon from his award winning comic book writing, but now the talented writer is branching out into the world of video games thanks to Octopus Tree, a new publisher focused on bringing exceptional indie titles to gamers worldwide.
The game is called Goliath, and it puts players in a world where massive monsters roam freely and gamers scavenge for resources and materials to create powerful giant robots. Goliaths can be customized and outfitted with weapons for various situations and battle preferences. Players also can create items and tools for survival, construct shelters and fortresses, and choose which factions to support in the war sweeping across the world.
Here's what the game includes:
Build, Create and Destroy: Construct and customize giant Goliath robots, crafted from the materials found and tools earned along gamers' journeys to help level the playing field against the world's colossal beasts.
Living World: Procedurally generated environments, quests and events, and a living ecosystem with changing weather and day and night cycles ensure that no two games of Goliath will ever be the same.
Adapt to The Environment: Players must consider how different weather conditions affect various Goliath types while interacting with countless creatures to hunt and fight.
Boss Battles: Battle gigantic bosses that dwarf one's own massive mechanized warriors!
Cooperative Multiplayer: Goliath supports four-player co-op. Each player's world has unique quests and rewards, and any loot they earn in co-op can be used in single-player mode.
Play Your Way: Choose one of several factions in a massive war that's sweeping the land and determine who will come out on top. Players can build a fortified base to take on everyone or take on the role of a roaming nomad.
Steam is always churning out good games, and I'm excited to try this one out for myself. Goliath is coming to PC on Steam on Thursday, May 12 for $19.99.
