Headup Announces Gigapocalypse, a 2D Retro Action Destruction Game for PC

Press Releases

Become superior and destroy EVERYTHING this summer!

Cologne, May 27, 2021 – Headup announces Gigapocalypse for PC, and the collaboration with solo-developer Goody Gameworks. Gigapocalypse is a 2D pixel art destruction game in which you can relive your childhood memories! Every fan of the early days’ video game classic “Rampage”, and also of “Godzilla” and “King Kong”, should pay attention now:

As a giant Kaijū-inspired monster – the so-called “Gigas” – you’re going to leave a pixelated trail of destruction in a variety of differently themed locations, accompanied by pumping heavy metal songs to make sure your destruction comes in style.

Try – die – repeat: With each run your Giga will become more powerful until you reach the boss enemy in each location. The further you get in a level and the more you destroy the more mutation points you will get. Use the mutation points to upgrade your Giga with powerful mutations, skills, skins or even up to five cute yet evil pets at the same time which accompany you on your journey. You can even take care of your Giga in Tamagotchi-style mini games and decorate your Giga´s “home” with cool stuff that will also improve your Giga and make them more menacing.

Gigapocalypse will be released into Steam Early Access in summer 2021. The full game will feature nine different Gigas, each with their unique distinctive abilities and six beautifully detailed pixel style locations based on earth’s historical and future timeline.

You can try a demo of Gigapocalypse at the Steam Next Fest on June 16thWishlist now on Steam!

Also, feel free to check out the game’s Twitter page and discuss with the developer on Discord.

About Gigapocalypse

As a little kid, picking up your dragon toys, spewing fire, feels powerful, and destroying everything is one of the best childhood memories for many of us. Now you become that giant monster in Gigapocalypse, a 2D pixel art destruction game, inspired by classical Kaijū movies such as “Godzilla” and “King Kong”, and the game classic “Rampage”.

Gigapocalypse features a selection of different “Gigas” from the Prehistoric Era, the uncharted outer space, and the forgotten history. Each with unique skills, mutations, and manifold skins that can be unlocked with level-ups.
Start your destruction spree and destroy everything on your way through different beautifully detailed pixel- style locations. Ever wondered how it looks like when a giant monster destroys a wild west town? Or clashing against the brave Knights Templar? Gigapocalypse has the answer. But beware: Nasty soldiers, wizards, drones, and mechs will do everything to stop you! With each try your Giga will become more powerful until you will finally make it to the diversified, epic boss fights that await you at the end of each level.

Complete quests, take care of your Giga in Tamagotchi-style mini-games, find secrets to upgrade your Giga and its “home” and unlock cute but yet lethal pets that accompany you on your journey.

Gigapocalypse is loud, punk, metal, anarchy, and a lovely homage to the game and movie classics. It´s a game for the kid in all of us.
