The much feared Rhino Mech.
Do you like Mech games? So do we. Our small team of designers and programmers love mechs. We've been laboring on Mecha Galaxy for the last 6 months and we're proud of how far we've come. Now we want to take it to the next level. We set out to make the most fun mech game we could, with a great story, riveting combat mechanics, and tons of customizable mechs and items. We hope you'll join us in crowning this awesome and exciting undertaking.
When you contribute on Kickstarter, you will gain access to our closed Beta game, and our closed beta community updates. Your feedback will directly influence the game Mecha Galaxy finally becomes.
The more money we raise the better this game can be. Even after passing our initial goal, every penny will go toward MORE mechs, MORE equipment, and MORE features you want to see in the game.
Check out the Beta here:
(Coming soon to other platforms including the Open Web)
UPDATE: Wooooohooo! First goal met! Thanks to everyone who helped us get over the first hurdle.
Level 5: $5,000 raised. Upgradeable bases. As players level up, they will gain the ability to upgrade their base. Achievement Unlocked
Level 6: $6,000 raised. Time speed up. For the remainder of the Beta, energy will refresh every 55 seconds instead of 60. We'll play inside an accelerated time warp. Achievement Unlocked
Level 7: $7,000 raised. THE SENATE HAS VOTED FOR: Weapon Sell Back. The ability to sell back weapons which are no longer useful. Achievement Unlocked
Level 8: $8,000 raised. Pending Senate Vote.
Level 8 and beyond: Further level prizes will be chosen by vote of the Galactic Senate. There will be nominations for bonus features which can be coded, all current senators can vote on which ones to create when.
The Beta will run until about April 5th, but no more beta codes will be sold after the Kickstarter ends. So sign up today to play in the "Grand Finale" of the Beta.
Welcome to Mecha Galaxy
In the year 3229, the galaxy is ruled by powerful civilizations contending for control of a vast network of ancient inter-stellar teleportation gateways. Their greatest warriors wield the most awesome weapons ever known: the giant Mecha war machines.
The Illyrian Hegemony - old, noble, ruthless - commands the center arms of the galaxy. The Meiji Shogunate, hemming the galaxy's core, practices their refined combat at every opportunity. On the galactic fringes, the Society of Cogwerk Planets relentlessly defends their independence. Victory and survival depend upon the expert piloting of the ultimate weapons. Only a balanced team of well-equipped Mecha can hold their own on the battlefield of the future. With the right weapons and strategy, the aspiring warlord can still threaten the most powerful clans.
As the game evolves, powerful players may wish to join or even replace these factions with groups of their own...
Just A Game?
In Mecha Galaxy, you engage your friends in mecha-combat. By winning battles and completing quests, you build up a squadron of hardened Mechs to rise in the rankings and (if you can) perhaps join the Galactic Senate as an arbiter of the Galaxy's fate.
The Purple Tiger Mech (name subject to change)
A standard Assault Mech
You enter Mecha Galaxy as a gifted but untrained mech pilot with your own small squadron of basic Mecha war machines. These are the key to your success. Everything hinges on how you compose your small attack force.
Customize. Equip. Train. Win.
Whenever you attack someone, you fight their team of mechs. The stats and upgrades of the two squadrons are compared and the battle is played out in front of you. There are many effects that add to the depth of the battle system, rewarding you for careful strategy in customizing and arranging your pilots, your equipment, and your mechs.
Mecha Galaxy is a game you play in your browswer, not a real time shooter. It's more like Tower Defense than like MechWarrior. Combat in the game is focused on building your squadron, equipping and configuring your mechs, then watching them do battle. Build your squadron over time, train your pilots, configure your Mechs. That's the way to win battles.
When you're feeling battle-weary, you can explore the world of Mecha Galaxy through short missions and longer quests. You'll discover special items and learn about the political intrigue brewing in Mecha Galaxy, as well as live out the day-to-day adventures of mech pilots, smugglers, and pirates on exotic planets ruled by future civilizations.
Advanced players may find themselves enmeshed in the unfolding history of the galaxy itself, as they gain power and gain control of the galaxy.
The Galaxy is an unforgiving arena. Your rank will be known. Watch as you grow as a pilot and rise in the ranks among the other players. Tons of stats to help you see where you can improve your combat-readiness help you overpower your rivals.
Completing special missions and attaining different levels of excellence will win you medals that you can show off on your player profile and on the leader board. Your opponents will tremble at your heavy chest laden with accolades.
You can fight many opponents, but the most glory is won in events such as the circuit fights, where you battle for ranking within a small group of similarly matched players. Plus special tournaments and competitions whose terms are decided by the Galactic Senate, test your mettle and boost your adrenaline.
The Galactic Senate
Membership in the Galactic Senate is the ultimate measure of your power. Here, you join the ranks of the story's most powerful characters and participate in determining the fate of the Galaxy.
Who Are We?
We are a lean team of experienced game developers who know how to make games fun. We only make games that we ourselves would love to play.
We code all day everyday. We love what we do.
All pledges for in-game items will "stack". For example, if you have already pledged $5, just $1 more gets you the $6 ion destruct cannon.
If you have already pledged $40, just $10 more gets you the $50 Red Rhino mech.
All players to pledge over $40 will be offered inaugural Senate seats, regardless of which package you choose.
Please note that Pilots and Equipment are not fully coded yet. Pilot and Equipment rewards will be distributed as soon as they are implemented in the game. Weapons and Mechs are in use right now :)
If you have any more questions about the prizes, just ask! :)
What's Left That Needs Doing
A deeper single player experience. The current PvE aspect of the game is just a place holder. There is so much more to come!
We've been developing Mecha Galaxy on our own time and money for 6 months. The game has its core complete, but needs your donation and feedback to bring it to the level of a polished masterpiece. We want to create more art, deepen the story, and add more features to make the game as fun and awesome as we know it should be. In particular we want to create many more mechs and missions, implement circuit prizes, and invest in making the game more balanced and challenging.
Every penny we raise makes the game better. This is what we do, and we want to keep expanding the game indefinitely. Ideally we will raise much more than the $3,500 we need right now, making the game that much better, with that many more mechs, better quest mechanics, more items, more prizes and more events.
