Saskatoon, Canada - February 18, 2021 - Foolish Mortals are not done yet updating their Kaiju-sized demo for Kaiju Wars. Today, the team is excited to share that a fully integrated map editor is added to the Steam Kaiju Wars demo, with the feature also to be included at launch.

How does it all work? Glad you asked! Michael Long from the Foolish Mortals team shared an extensive breakdown on Steam, which you can read here, but here are some of the biggest points!

  • The Kaiju Wars map editor allows you to create any type of scenario presented in the main campaign.
    • Some are easier to create than others, so the team recommends starting off with the basics in “What makes a map fun?”. But also hey, what do we know?! Show us your own formula.
  • Mission settings tab -  allow you to choose a name, description, map dimensions, palette, and units! It’s where all of the initial building blocks begin.
  • Tiles tab - This is where all of Kaiju Wars’ options lay. There are some necessities, but the rest is up to your aesthetic and tactical desire.
  • Kaiju tab - Oh, you also get to fully customize the kaiju. Yup. Choose who, how many, spawn location, appearance timing, health, respawn bonuses, and a whole host of other details.
  • Projects and Dialogue - You choose the project cards and dialogue that’ll come in the designed mission.
  • Steam Workshop integration - Uploading to Steam Workshop will make your map viewable. This is also where you’ll be able to play other community creations!

That covers the basics, but there is so much more to explore. The team is incredibly excited to see what the community creates, and to share some of those amazing creations with everyone at launch.

Foolish Mortals will be hosting a map creator contest from February 17 until March 18, where Steam Workshop submitted maps will be up for potential inclusion in the final campaign at the launch of Kaiju Wars. Foolish Mortals will reach out directly to creators, with inclusion (if agreed upon) being integrated into the main storyline, and credits to the creator being alongside the team in the final launch product.

There is also a limited run of Kaiju Wars movie inspired posters created by the Foolish Mortals team, which will be shared with winning creators as a secondary token of appreciation for collaboration. Further details will be shared via the Kaiju Wars Steam page and social media accounts as the contest continues.

About Kaiju Wars:

Command the army!
  • We need more time! - Play as the mayor of Floatio city, tasked with holding off the overwhelming strength of a kaiju attack. Park tanks and jets in the monster's path to slow it down (don't worry, we have a good insurance policy).
  • Construct buildings! - Build sacrificial army bases and airfields to distract the kaiju and line the city streets with fodder.
  • Deploy experimental weapons! - Conventional weapons aren't enough; deploy experimental weapons such as freeze rays and transforming mechas to keep the kaiju at bay.

EVACUATE!
  • Our chief scientist is working on an anti-monster serum, but it's not ready yet! Be prepared to evacuate the laboratory using transport trucks, boats, or planes when the kaiju get too close.

Fight the KAIJU!
  • Five unique kaiju - Each specializing in different types of destruction.
  • They mutate! - Tremble in fear as each kaiju grows stronger and gains devastating abilities through mid-level mutations.
  • Unstoppable! - Kaiju can't be killed, but can only be slowed down and forced to fall back... for now. Pepper them with ammunition, if you can.
  • Predictable! - They move towards the nearest building, and them scientists have mathed the exact odds they step on each tile!

Campaign Mode!
  • Uncover the mystery - Strange things are happening: frequent volcanic eruptions, tsunamis and earthquakes. Find out why over the course of an 8+ hour story-based campaign.
  • Embark on a Campaign! - Play missions from all over the world as you progress through the globe-trotting fight against kaiju. Test your wits in tactical puzzles, command dozens of units in large-scale scenarios, and fend off repeated attacks while developing your city economically in city defense missions.
  • Upgrade your ACES - Veteran ACE units accompany you throughout your campaign. Spend medals to upgrade and customize your top fighters.
  • Customize your Project Deck - Unlock powerful Project cards, customize your deck, and bring your best strategy to compete on the online leaderboard!
