Update 2 : The Gargantuan!

Hi Backers!

Firstly, thanks for backing. We've now reached the £1K mark! There's still a way to go but the response has been great so far. Thanks to all those who have shared and helped promote the project too.

The Gargantuan

I've managed to sneak in a bit of alien concept art time in amongst the busy schedule of running a Kickstarter. This is one that I've been wanting to design for a while now. It's a rather big brute who has a rather devastating secondary attack capable of destroying both sets of cover during a fight. Scary!

As the threat level of the world increases, the scale, amount and sheer power of the aliens will increase with it. As that happens Will needs bigger weapons or a way to reduce the threat... maybe he needs to sabotage their way of calling backup?

Press

The project has had some more press recently which is fantastic. I've been mailing as many sites as possible trying to get coverage. Here are the articles that went up recently.

If you know of any other sites that would be interested be sure to comment or send me a message.


Alien Nickname

The aliens don't have a name, they've never spoke to a human before so we don't know what to call them. They just turned up and kick-started the apocalypse. What would you nickname them?

      Hey Noah, haha I was hoping it was Meteor just for fun :D would have been a different name for sure

      Hey Alex, no Meteor isn't my first name, but I am working on something using it.

      My actual name is Noah Weeks, but changed it up for fun a while ago. :P

      Cheers Meteor! Is Meteor your first name? :P

      Jamie, I'm not sure I understand the question :) also, Apoco-bots?

      I love this! As much as I do love nicknames as well, this is exactly what I think of when games like Xcom: EU have you encounter aliens you've never seen before.

      Apoco-bots :')

      On a more serious note: Mechas?
