Spark Plug Gives Mechrunner a Kickstart


Already feature complete and in the final phase of development for release this July on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Steam (PC/Mac/Linux), Mechrunner from Spark Plug Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign seeking funds to finish the game with the polish it deserves. If at least $25k is raised by May 16th, Spark Plug will be able to properly bug test the game, integrate more story elements, hire professional voice actors, and more.

So, what’s Mechrunner, you ask? Well, it’s an endless runner action game with a giant, highly customizable mech that can transform into a tank on the fly, providing two ways to make enemy robots blow up real nice. Wait, is that a mech dual wielding swords and axes? Yep, I think this game just guaranteed itself Kickstarter success.

Main features include:

•Meticulously detailed, fast-paced action
•Switch between Tank and Robot modes on the fly
•Slice & Dice enemy units with your swords
• Extensive arsenal of weapons, customizations, and power-ups
•Unique environments that blend seamlessly together
•Procedurally generated levels for endless variety
•Numerous enemy types with different tactics
•Epic boss battles!
•Dynamic environment obstacles
•Unlockable skins, upgrades, and achievements
•Rescue civilians for extra points and rewards
•Amazing Hollywood quality soundtrack
•Optional controls – play with a mouse or controller
