What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Any fighting game is only as good as its controls & combat mechanics. During our Early Access period we'll be rapidly iterating on both these features, according to community feedback!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We anticipate about 3 months of Early Access will be necessary to really tune in the combat & controls.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version of Kaijuland Battles will be free - there won't be any significant gameplay differences from the Early Access version. The product is a very streamlined fighting game - 4 characters only.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All features are present, and all four characters are fully playable. Several combat mechanics are still very rough - especially weapons, grappling, & rage attacks. Many of our animations & audio assets will be polished, and we'll get a full graphical overhaul to our menu system before release.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“During Early Access, we'll charge $5 for players. (Our Kickstarter backers will get Steam Keys e-mailed to them.) Once the game is ready for wide release, it will be free!”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The CKC community is VERY involved - we have hundreds of ongoing discusion on our forums - and all our design documentation is online in our public wiki. We have a public bug ticketing system we hope Early Access players will make use of - and our current & future task lists are public on Trello.”

About This Game

From the folk who brought you classic Kaiju titles like "Godzilla: Save the Earth", "Rampage: Total Destruction", and "Deadliest Warrior" comes the next generation of monster-on-monster fighting action: Colossal Kaiju Combat! Funded by the CKC community, our plan is to release 2-3 new games each year, showcasing features & characters selected by our fans!

Our first release: "Kaijuland Battles" features 4 cartoony kaiju from the (now sadly defunct) Kaijuland game. This is our "bare bones" release - we'll iterate to really tune our core combat mechanics & controls during Early Access.

Our next CKC game (The Fall of Nemesis) launches next year with 9 original characters designed & voted on by our fans, and 2 special boss characters designed by guest contributors Jeremy Robinson & Monster Attack Team.

CKC features 1-4 players, online or off. Gamepad control only - YOU MUST HAVE A GAMEPAD TO PLAY!

To submit your own character for a future title, or just to join in our lively kaiju discussion, visit our forums!

I'm not sure I'd even call this proof of concept, as many of the features they've been talking about are not present in the build. Game is dead, don't waste your money. Go pick up Saved the Earth somewhere, its backwards compatible with the 360.

I am now convinced that the dev team just kinda gave up on making this game.
Need further proof?
Check the date of the last update.

Also the game is very lacking as is.
Supposedly the game is fun if you can manage to find a friend to fight.
Problem is, the online fight option NEVER works for me.

Of all of Mr. Strange's games, I can honestly say that this is game is aiming to be one of my personal favorites. For an early access game, it's got the capability to be as action packed as Destroy All Monsters Melee! I am looking forward to the other Colossal Kaiju Combat titles, especially with monsters created by the fans and for the fans, such as Sarcosteus, DragonLotus, Nemesis, and of course, The Baz himself. Keep it up, Simon! I can hardly wait for future releases!

I recommend this game if you do not mind a few bugs.

If you have played Godzilla: Save The Earth or Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee you will find this game very simmilar.

I have heard that Godzilla, Gamera, and Ultraman are joining the character roster when the full version comes out, so I am very excited.

Just get the game.

Its Good.

While the idea of enormous kaiju creatures controlled by players pitted against each other is interesting and has succeeded in other games, case and point games like Godzilla: Unleashed, this game fails at every level. I could hardly get the damn game to work, and I didn't have an Xbox controller, so I had to configure a bunch of options in a damn emulator program, and even then it didn't work, so I was just sitting there, raging that I was getting my ♥♥♥ kicked by a bot and I couldn't move. Not to mention, development is so slow that it might as well be dead. Now, because I've played it for seven minutes, I can't remove it, and now all the game is doing is taking up space on my Library.

Final Verdict - 0/10, A money grabbing waste of a game that died too soon to be any good, that which I won't reccomend if it kills me.

I enjoy this project so far. Even though the development speed has gotten me worried I still try and play this whenever I can. I recommend this game because it needs people to play it in order to get better faster and that it is still fun in this early stage.

Supported the game during the Kickstarter.
And I'm far from amazed by the early result.
I'm not sure that they know what they're doing, and they focus a little bit much on their collectible card game.
Concepts arts are cools.
Result is far from stellar.
Will revisit the review later if actual progress is made (right now it's barely a skeleton). For now I really can't tell you to get the game at all.

All right, the main thing you need to know when going into the game is this: It is ALPHA. It is not completed at all. With that out of the way, I'll move onto other points.

The game is laggy, but still playable. Expect disconnections every now and then. Other than that, joining games is easy. Private matches, however, do not seem to exist. It seems anyone can join a game no matter what password you give the server, so expect to not be playing with just your friends all the time.

Now the gameplay itself. Some of it is yet to be implemented (grappling) but it is overall a pretty fun combat. It feels great to dodge an attack and counterattack. However, beam weapons are extremely OP at this time: Expect to be OHKO'd by them.
This will be fixed in the future, however, since this is only Alpha. Some attacks also go beyond their frames (once again, beams). Overall, however, this is a pretty fun fighting game.

Overall, I highly reccomend it. This is just the first of many planned games from Sunstone Games in this series. I'd highly suggest getting involved with both the game and the community; their both user-friendly. It is also possible to get your OWN
monster into the game series (Colossal Kaiju Combat) in the future, but more of that on the community site:

http://kaijucombat.com/community/index.php

Now if you dont want to read that massive wall of text:

TL;DR: I reccomend this game if you have a controller and are a fan of fighting games or just monsters in general. It is still in Early Alpha, so glitches are guarnteed; however, this is still a great game.

Now, I have a long history of loving Godzilla and its series. When I first played those Godzilla fighting games after knowing so much from the movies, I just have gotten obsessed with it. Now the last Godzilla fighting game was released back in 2007 which was Godzilla Unleashed. Even though I still play it a lot (as Gigan obviously) I feel like they should really be making a new great game for everyone (which they have made a new Godzilla game for PS3 and PS4 but didn't turn out that well). Unfortunetly they haven't, but however Godzilla Unleashed producer Simon Strange decided to bring back the feeling of it by making his own version of a monster fighting game, bringing back all the game mechanics similar to Godzilla Save the Earth and the feeling of being a catastrophic monster in a free-for-all or 2v2 fight. The game is in Alpha which means its still being produced but as a Godzilla fan, I reccommend sticking with this game as it is still being made, to see the greatness of game production and that warm feeling of playing a good monster fighting game. I have a great feeling that with this game and its connection to the fans, is going to rock.

This was the first Kickstarter I ever back and it really made me question ever doing it again. I think before you back any developer they should prove they know how to make a game and see it to completion. Colossal Kaiju Combat feels like a unorganized mess. The devs spam you with info about their card game more than advancements in developing this one. I install it once about every 4 months to see if anything has changed and it's always the same. The same three monsters with clunky fighting animations.

I supported the Kickstarter because of the concept they mentioned of have all kaiju from all movies together in one fighting game. I'm sorry to say the dream I had of what this game would be is dead. Now I'm just hoping to recover my losses at some point with something at least playable and a bit fun.

There's very little value to spending money to play a barebones game in an unfinished state like this; especially as the final version will be free. You get 4 characters, and only one arena. There seems to be very little depth to the gameplay; it's entirely big monsters hitting each other.

One thing I find very jarring and offputting is that visually the game looks identical to alpha footage from over a year ago. I would hope the developers use Early Access as crunch time for improving the assets; but that a game with such little content has barely improved after all this time does not inspire confidence.

It might be worth playing for an hour or two once it's out for free, but this game feels so limited that I really cannot recommend putting cash behind it.

Looks can be deceiving, and that is truly the case with this hugely fun multiplayer monster brawler, if you enjoyed the old Godzilla games then you need to buy this, furthermore this games fun factor goes up 10X when playing with friends so go support the developers right now and buy Kaiju Combat, and dont forget you've probably spent more money on lunch then the price of this game
