MechRunner unveiled

Here is a new KickStarter project, MechRunner. An action game with an interesting concept, shown in this trailer, screenshots and press release.


MechRunner is a high-octane endless action game that casts you as a powerful mode-changing mech. Blast your way through decimated urban landscapes at incredible speeds while switching between robot and tank modes to rain punishment on endless waves of mechanical foes. MechRunner features exciting, non-stop action, stunning 3D visuals and a Hollywood-style soundtrack.

Other features of the game include:
Switch between mech and tank modes on-the-fly
Slice & dice enemy units with your sword
Rescue civilians for extra points and awards
Access an extensive arsenal of weapons, customizations, and power-ups
Unique environments that blend seamlessly together
Numerous enemy types each with different tactics (and weaknesses)
Epic boss battles
A dynamically shifting environment offers unexpected obstacles, cover and danger
Unlockable skins, upgrades, and achievements
Spark Plug Games is excited to partner with veteran film industry concept artist Josh Nizzi (Avengers, Iron Man, Transformers) to bring the world of MechRunner to life. "Josh has really created an amazing aesthetic that makes playing MechRunner a truly unique visual experience." says Ben Lichius, VP and Art Director at Spark Plug. “I think we have some of the most detailed, amazing looking mechs to ever appear in a video game.”

Spark Plug is also announcing the launch of a Kickstarter campaign to help the studio add some final polish items in anticipation of the Summer launch. “MechRunner is feature complete.” said Spark Plug President John O’Neill. “But we realized that, with a little extra push here at the end, there’s a lot we could do to make playing MechRunner even more memorable for gamers and mech fans alike. We’re excited to engage with fans, get their feedback, and partner with them while we wrap things up. We’ve also got some fantastic backer rewards!”

Among the rewards offered by the team, backers will have an opportunity to play the game early, receive exclusive in-game content, the game’s soundtrack, t-shirts, and more, as well as limited edition collectable statues and even a chance to collaborate with the team to create new game content. The Kickstarter campaign is live and will run through May 16th, 2014.

No Xbox indeed. Probably due to the cost of the project itself

    GriftGFX @aphex187: There's some good players in the beta. The game really needs skill matching even in the casual playlists because it's going to be brutal without it. (12 Hours ago)
