13AM Games to Reveal Third Title Dawn of the Monsters at G-Fest XXVI
TORONTO, CANADA -- July 09, 2019 -- 13AM Games, the award-winning independent studio behind Runbow and Double Cross, is excited to announce the unveiling of their third title, Dawn of the Monsters. The official reveal will take place on July 12th, 2019 during the opening ceremonies of Chicago’s G-Fest XXVI, the world’s largest kaiju convention. Attendees of the opening ceremonies will have the chance to see an exclusive trailer featuring the first publicly-seen footage of the game. More information will follow for the general public in the coming months.
Dawn of the Monsters is a couch co-op, brawling action game that takes up to four players on a worldwide tour of destruction. Players take on roles from an all new cast of kaiju and are tasked with defeating the “Nephilim”, a horde of monsters that are destroying the planet. Conquer four unique worlds and unlock The Maw, an endless onslaught of kaiju brawls. Featuring beautiful 2.5D graphics inspired by the works of Mike Mignola, combat inspired by classics from the action and fighting game genres, and fully destructible environments, couch co-op in Dawn of the Monsters is bigger and badder than ever before. G-Fest will also feature a Dawn of the Monsters panel led by Creative Director and CEO of 13AM Games, Alex Rushdy. Alex is a longtime kaiju fanatic, and will be partnering his toy company, Seismic, LLC with 13AM Games to produce soft vinyl figures of one of the game’s headlining kaiju, Megadon. Attendees of G-Fest can visit the Seismic booth to complete a kaiju-themed survey for the chance to win a figure.
