Goliath: Building Giant Robots
I didn’t get very far into the description for Goliath before I was sold. You crash land on planet where the only way to really survive is to build giant robots to fight in and/or for you. Who doesn’t want to build their own giant robots? Sold. The game is obviously a little more complex than that—there are a ton of customizations for your mech and there are a few different types of mechs you can build for every environment you encounter. As you explore, you’ll run through deserts, forests, wintry wonderlands and everything inbetween—all of which have an effect on your mech. A wooden mech, for instance, will catch on fire if it’s out in the desert too long because of the heat. A stone goliath in the same situation will also get hot, but it works in his favor by adding fire damage to his attacks instead of burning him to death. The customizations give your mech all sorts of cool weapons and special abilities—all of which you gain through obtaining blueprints through quests and helping out the factions. I adore the art style and the general atmosphere. They’re releasing in early 2016 on PC, and they may do a modest Kickstarter to get some funds for extras, like console versions and fan requests—It’s a game you need to keep your eye on.
