Cologne, Germany - November 12th, 2021 - Headup Games & Goody Gameworks are pleased to announce that Gigapocalypse has now exited Steam Early Access, getting its full PC release today. The game that PC Invasion said “is absolutely worth it”, has new monsters and maps to celebrate this landmark, as well as a 33% discount on Steam until November 17th.


Inspired by Kaiju monster movies like Godzilla and King Kong, as well as video game classic Rampage, Gigapocalypse gives players a roster of monsters, or “Gigas”, to choose from as you reduce cities to rubble to a pumping heavy metal soundtrack and create your own monster apocalypse.


With every run you undertake to try and get to each location’s boss, your Giga will become more powerful as you earn mutation points. You can spend these points to upgrade your Giga with new mutations, skills, skins, and even up to five tiny minion pets who will accompany on your outings of urban destruction. Take care of your Giga in Tamagotchi-style minigames and decorate your Giga’s home with cool items that will improve your Giga and make them more menacing.


With the full release of Gigapocalypse, three new Gigas have been added to the game. “The Old Gods” Khong’ Gho, Annonam and Ezer join three prehistoric monstrosities and three horrors from outer space to give players a host of unique monsters to choose from. Two new maps - Metro Dome and Eternal City - complete a roster of fun city locations ranging from the Wild West to the modern day for you to tear down.


“It’s been great to see the positive reactions to Gigapocalypse as we’ve added more and more to it throughout the game’s time in Early Access,” said developer Goody Pundit. “That reception has only made us more excited for today’s full release and we hope people are looking forward to picking a Giga and laying waste to everything in front of them!”
