Reviews

“Kaiju Wars stomps its way onto the strategy scene with its brilliant sense of style, distinct setting, and tight tactical gameplay. Kaiju Wars is absolutely worth a spot in your library for any strategy fan, especially for fans of all things kaiju, monstrous, and wondrous.”
85/100 – Cultured Vultures

“Toss Into The Breach and Advance Wars into a nuclear reactor with the contents of an abandoned VHS store and you'll get Kaiju Wars - a brilliant turn-based strategy game about putting off the inevitable or preferably, taking it on an extended tour of the unpopulated warehouse district, well away from your town centre.”
Recommended – Eurogamer

“An excellent game for strategy fans who love Godzilla movies. Even without that, the game has so much care and attention put into that it's hard to put it down.”
9/10 – TechRaptor

About This Game

Kaiju are approaching the city! Scramble the jets and deploy the tanks in this 2D turn-based strategy game.

Command the army

  • We need more time! - Play as the mayor of Floatio city, tasked with holding off the overwhelming strength of a kaiju attack. Park tanks and jets in the monster's path to slow it down (don't worry, we have a good insurance policy).
  • Construct buildings! - Build sacrificial army bases and airfields to distract the kaiju and line the city streets with fodder.
  • Deploy experimental weapons! - Conventional weapons aren't enough; deploy experimental weapons such as freeze rays and transforming mechas to keep the kaiju at bay.
  • Evacuate! - Our chief scientist is working on an anti-monster serum, but it's not ready yet! Be prepared to evacuate the laboratory using transport trucks, boats, or planes when the kaiju get too close.

Fight the KAIJU!

  • Five unique kaiju - Each specializing in different types of destruction.
  • They mutate! - Tremble in fear as each kaiju grows stronger and gains devastating abilities through mid-level mutations.
  • Unstoppable! - Kaiju can't be killed, but can only be slowed down and forced to fall back... for now. Pepper them with ammunition, if you can..
  • Predictable! - They move towards the nearest building, and those scientists have mathed the exact odds as to where they might go next. Use this info wisely!

Campaign Mode!

  • Uncover the mystery - Strange things are happening: frequent volcanic eruptions, tsunamis and earthquakes. Find out why over the course of a 15+ hour story-based campaign.
  • Embark on a Campaign - Play missions from all over the world as you progress through the globe-trotting fight against kaiju. Test your wits in tactical puzzles, command dozens of units in large-scale scenarios, and fend off repeated attacks while developing your city economically in city defense missions.
  • Upgrade your ACES - Veteran ACE units accompany you throughout your campaign. Spend medals to upgrade and customize your top fighters.
  • Customize your Project Deck - Unlock powerful Project cards, customize your deck, and bring your best strategy to compete on the online leaderboard!

Twitch Integration, Custom Maps, and More!

  • Twitch Integration - Twitch chat are the citizens! Twitch viewers can type commands into chat to have comments appear during certain in-game events
  • Local Versus Mode - Two players duke it out at the same computer (or online via Steam RemotePlay), with one playing as the KAIJU, the other as the HUMANS
  • Create your own battles - Create your own city or scenario - Simple and easy to use, scenarios can be crafted in minutes using the drag and drop map editor
  • Share your creations online - Share your maps online using Steam Workshop integration
  • Weekly Challenges - Try our challenges and play for top spot on the weekly leaderboards

    You thought being mayor of the world's greatest city was all about zoning bylaws. Then the kaiju came. Good luck.
