First Look at Giants
12:22 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Just in case you skipped IMG's home page to get here, we thought we'd mention that our own Tuncer Deniz has put together a preview of Giants: Citizen Kabuto, a unique RTS title being developed by Planet Moon. As we recently reported, Giants will be ported to the Mac OS by MacPlay for release sometime in 2001.


This detailed preview covers the many unusual and surreal features of this RTS, and includes ten brand-new screen shots. Here is an excerpt:

Giants is somewhat of a unique game concept in the otherwise derivative sea of computer games that typically dominated store shelves. Planet Moon, which includes some of the crazy cats that were responsible for the original MDK and Earthworm Jim, has put together one very cool-looking game that is sure to capture many a gamer’s dollar over the holiday season and beyond.


The Giants story involves three groups of characters: The Meccaryns, the Sea Reapers, and Kabuto (who’s not a group, he’s only one guy). In the single-player portion of the game, you end up playing all three races (in the above order) as the story unfolds before you.

Read on for more details on the three unique 'races' and of course those gorgeous screen shots.
