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.”

Build #302 Notes (1/16/2015)

Big balance pass today!

Gameplay fixes:
  • Ducking now reduces weapon damage by 50%.
  • Victory & Knockdown animations should ALWAYS play when you are KO'd.
  • Getup attacks now cancel charges.
  • Increased L/R head firing arc.
  • Prone monsters can now only be hit by overhead attacks.

Balance fixes:
  • Komododon - Quick + Toward no longer freezes.
  • Magnarok - light weapon damage increased.
  • Robokomododon - Fierce + Down slowed by 16%.
  • Robokomododon - Hops have more follow-through.
  • Robokomododon - Fierce + Up slowed by 25%.

We're pleased to announce that games played has spiked sharply since our first update of 2015 - online matches reached their highest one-day levels ever of over 350! We've also had 30 new bug reports in the past 2-3 days, which is wonderful! Please keep playing, commenting, and helping us get KLB into fighting trim!

Note - in several animations (get up attacks especially) character tails are not animating correctly. This has the effect of making certain characters totally vulnerable while on the ground - which makes them very weak. We are working hard to address this issue.

Build #296 Notes (01/09/2015)

Back from the holidays!

Back at last from the holidays! As you can see from our build number, we've been working hard all through December, but never had the time to carefully review for a build. Now we're back, so expect frequent builds all through January!

Gameplay fixes:
  • Magnarok's weapon node position fixed. (Was firing out of his feet!)
  • All weapon ranges increased dramatically.
  • New Weapon VFX!
  • Weapon impact VFX!
  • Weapons now persist (as appropriate) in the world.
  • Komododon Bite changed for balance.
  • Komododon Quick_Toward changed for balance.
  • Magnarok Overhead_Knockdown anim improved.
  • Charge turn speed reduced. (It's now hard to miss with a charge, and come back immediately)
  • Energy use of Weapons overhauled. (See details below)

New Energy System Details:

When you press the POWER button, 1 cell of energy is spent.
Hold POWER as long as you like - no more limits based on energy!
When you release POWER, your character fires a weak, normal, or strong version of their weapon, and pays an additional energy cost: 1 cell for weak, 2 cells for normal, and 3 cells for strong.

To fire a normal beam, a character must build-up at least half way. For a strong beam, a character must build-up fully.

If you build-up past the point that you can afford in terms of energy, you will fire the weaker of the two options. (Doing a build-up with just 1 cell of energy will always fire a weak beam, no matter how long you build-up!)

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!

Early Access Review
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.

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

This game is a great amount of fun even in its incomplete state. As long as you got enough skill and tenacity, matches can become the most fun you've ever had!

The thing you need to keep in mind is that this game is Alpha and is created to be simple and bare, saving complexity for future releases. But even with its simplicity, I have sunk 8 hours into this game already and plan to give in 8 more!

(Obeslete: Also... The Komododon model is HORRID but that is my only beef so far.)
The Komododon model has improved greatly from what it used to be.

If you were a HARDCORE fan of the Godzilla Trilogy or you wish to support the devs either financialy or you wish to help find bugs and tell on the forums, get it! Otherwise, wait for the free full version.

Do you know Guillermo del Toro's movie Pacific RIM from 2012?
Now you are able to play the huge Kaiju monsters in this little fighting game called CKC. Though the game is still in early-access mode and only by controller playable you can test out a lot of moves. Even the skins of your kaijus are customizable. Great!
I'm looking forward for some other arenas and mods to revive my old Tekken days ...

Early Access Review
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 got 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 lol) I feel like they should really be making a new great game for everyone. 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 monster in a free for all or 2v2 fight. The game is in Alpha which means its still being produced. As a Godzilla fan I reccommend sticking with this game as it produces, to see the greatness of game production and that warm feeling of playing a good monster fighting game. The game is going to rock.

Build #199 Review


First Impressions:
Being an ALPHA game there wasnt much to be expected. I expected a Barebones game with semi-decent controls. An it does have fair decent controls. It can be clunky at times, but I'm not expecting this to play as Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat. It's giant monsters an they are meant to be sluggish. Some of the combos are kinda cool and its not super complicated. An thats alright, if you think about old monster(Kaiju) movies. They werent really pulling all the moves out they were like a giant slug fest. Granted I have yet to play this against someone but for an ALPHA its still not a bad game. I'm sure by the time its BETA it will be a lot better.

Things that need to be fixed/Worked on:
-They need to increase the emitter count on the flame attacks. They are too flat and look dated.
-The Textures on the Monsters look too clean. Get them scared up or at least give them more defination. Perhaps they will look more beaten up after fights. That would be pretty awesome to see
-The sholder armor on komododon are clipping through him. Or they are not rigged to his arm correctly
-Magnarok I think should have some type of flame or smoke emitting from his body to add more character.
-Im sure they are working on destructiable enviroments. I cant wait to test those out.

If you are a fan of the Godzilla Trilogy games, (Godzilla Destroy all Monsters Melee, Godzilla Save the Earth, Godzilla Unleashed) than this is the game for you! While the game is incomplete, you only have 4 kaiju and 1 map, it's still a lot of fun. I definetly recommend to any kaiju fans, or anyone who likes the Godzilla Trilogy of games.

Early Access Review
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.

I'm impressed. For an alpha game, this is amazing! It plays just like Save the Earth, expect it's stripped heavily. For a "demo", this game is great. Can't wait to see more from Sunstone!

Colossal Kaiju Combat Early Access Review

I will preface my review of CKC by stating that I am a huge fan of fighting games and kaiju, but this game is easily accessible to people who are not familiar with either. This review will not touch on much, since the game will always be a WIP.

VISUALS

The game's four monsters are mostly simple in design. You have a hammerhead shark, a radioactive dino and it's robotic doppleganger, and then a fire-stone tiki golem. Each one looks pretty good, if you are looking for hyper realistic visuals, that is not the goal of this game. The characters are thoughtfully designed to show off their unique personalities and origin, and this comes through in their animations (which are updated quite regularly around community feedback).

PLAYABILITY

Like I said, the game is a work-in-progess, and things are always changing and evolving. So, I will not point out flaws that exist in elements that ~1% of their man-power has been focused on.

Controls/Player Feedback- This game is controller ONLY. It supports basically any wired gamepad you may already own (Dualshock 3/4, XBOX 360/One Cont). I use a Razer controller, and it works perfectly. Inputs on the gamepad will either result in attacks (punches, kicks, laser beams) or defensive maneuvers (running, ducking, jumping). Each character has ~15 attacks, not counting weapons and charging (a high risk football-style tackle), these attacks perform similarly to a degree, but can be chained together very strategically. You can make risky attacks that will reward you with high damage, but leave you vulnerable for a longer period of time, or chain together many quick-weak attacks for guaranteed damage.

Menu/Presentation- Menus are barebones, again not something they have put any serious time into yet.
HUD/User Interface The HUD looks pretty cool so far, you have remaining health represented by a # value. Energy or other resource represented by a yellow gauge, and green shields that represent your defense cells (no function attached to these yet).

If you are a fan of fighting games that can be played casually or competitively, CKC is a definite recommendation.

It's nice to be larger than life monsters again, if you liked the old Godzilla games this shares alot of the same mechanics (Same developers I think) then this will be fun for you, all the workshop skins are nice too. Only con is the super laggy online, but if you get some friends you can play on one PC locally.

This game is going to be dope. Don't buy into the Early Access unless you want to support the devs, though. Kaijuland Battles will be free, post-Early Access, so don't rush into anything. Later on, there will be more releases for Colossal Kaiju Combat that will act as individual, yet modular games. In other words, you can play them separately, or all at once. If they make a decent enough profit with this brand we could end up playing as Godzilla and Mr. Stay Puft in future releases.

I really want atomic roasted marshmallows. Please buy.

Keep in mind that this game is in Alpha. It isn't the prettiest or the best gameplay wise, but I can't wait to see it's finished form. I can't find it in my heart to give it a thumbs down.

This is the start of a great series. Although clearly in Alpha state this game is a blast to play and now with the AI practice fights you can even enjoy the game without friends and the internet. The skins being put out by the community are really leading to some awesome modifications to base characters and are increasing the number of different kaiju looks impressively! I would strongly reccomend this game to anyone who is a fan of kaiju or the Godzilla fighting games.

I was one of the 1,247 backers of the original Kickstarter for the game, and was even able to meet the creator of this game at G-fest earlier this year. This game has come a long way. Some of the people making this game were also behind the creation of previous godzilla games.

Keep in mind, this game is in its early Beta phase and has gone through major updates in its recent history. the effects and settings may not have as much detail as the Godzilla games, but that is only due to the fact that the game is still in early development. The controls are still a bit rusty, and the servers will occassionaly crash. I strongly reccomend this game to fans of Godzilla Save the Earth and Godzilla Unleashed. This game will satisfy your thirst for Kaiju destruction!!

this game has a lot of potential, i remember playing Godzilla save the earth and rampage when i was little and loved those games, this game lives up to those two. however there are some things missing that i hope to see soon, like bots to play with and steam workshop for the skins. but i cant ask for much knowing that its still in alpha and has a long way to go. ive only played 10 minutes of the game XD but i can tell that this game will definetly get more popular as it grows, im hooked and i recommend this game to any Godzilla save the earth fans, any kaiju fans, and anyone who wants to try a new fighting game experience.

Colossal Kaiju Combat™: Kaijuland Battles is a 3D fighting game featuring four monsters that you can fight with. Up to four people online can battle, and the gameplay even in the Early Stages of testing is great. With the full retail release featuring all new monsters to fight with scheduled very soon, I reccomend that version when it comes out. This version is amazing too, and when complete, will be free!
