Every one who owns a Mech intellectual property, pay attention to this. Recently, PC Gamer posted a short video of a unique, Mech based, first person shooter on their web site. In just Nine (9!) months, Adhesive Games has developed an amazing looking game that allows the player to control a deadly Mech against other players, also in deadly Mechs …good luck. According to the Hawken FAQ page,
Hawken is a multiplayer mech combat game. The focus is on creating an intense and enjoyable battle experience that captures the feeling of piloting a heavy war machine while keeping the action fast-paced and strategic.
Hawken is still under development, but the designers hope to have it ready for PC, XBox, and PS3 platforms.
So, who ever owns the rights to Robotech, Battletech, and Macross, please for the love of all the Gods (even the benevolent Flying Spaghetti Monster) hire these guys! Get them to make my Zentradi slaying VF-1S and make this world a better place …for me.
Thanks to Chris for letting us know about all this. Check out the video below and see the awesome actual game play of Hawken, and let us know what other Mech games you would like to see. We are always interested in more Mech. We’re goddamn crack-fiends for Mech, and (despite what my therapist says) the more we have of it the better off we are!
