The Island Isn't Big Enough.

Giants: Citizen Kabuto is a revolutionary new style of action game: It combines RTS elements like base building and resource management in a simple and easy to understand way that has never been seen before. The game requires strategic thinking to exploit the enemies' weaknesses and manipulate your opponents against one another for control. The frenzied action ensues once your enemies' weaknesses are determined. For example, Kabuto depends on the Vimps for a food source to keep up his strength. The Sea Reaper can call in a tornado to sweep the Vimps away, leaving Kabuto hungry, weak and open for attack.

Frenzied action when playing as one of three incredibly unique races: The Sea Reapers, the Meccaryns, or the mighty Kabuto, but the addition of indigenous creatures called the "Smarties" adds to the fun. If "cared" for properly, the "Smarties" will build a base for you offering new weapons, spells, traps, vehicles - whatever each specific player needs. The bases will be different depending on which species you are playing with Kabuto not having the ability to create a base, since he is his own base! "Smarties" will offer Kabuto a special ability...

Sound like fun, eh?

With the recent announcement by MacPlay that Giants was shipping, I felt it was time to venture into this unique game and put a desktop together for it. "Incompatible" was a combination of box art, screenshots and game art provided by MacPlay and the internet. One interesting side note - the Sea Reaper art I found on the internet had to be fitted with a bikini top so this desktop could remain all-ages material. ;D I hope you'll enjoy this one as much as I did making it.

I spoke to soon again about Custer's Corner. I'm still tied up in a project for work that had me working late nights all last week again. I hope to finish this soon and be able to refocus on my site. Wish me luck!

Until then...
