Survive the treacherous land of Goliath with the help of high-tech armor

    
19

Tired of survival games yet? Whalebox Studio is truly hoping you aren’t, because it has another contender in the works called Goliath.

Goliath is a multiplayer title that throws players onto an island with hostile giants and kindly dares the smaller fleshlings to live to see another day. Fortunately, players have access to a robotic armor factory that can be used to fashion suits and gadgets for survival. Past saving your own skin, you’ll have the opportunity to side with a faction, explore a dynamic world, and help to conquer territory.

Goliath is currently in a pre-alpha state and is taking player sign-ups on its website. You can watch its announcement trailer after the jump.

I expected some thing like ‘Shadow of the colossus’ for some reason.

Doesn’t look that way…

Oh dear. Don’t Starve with X is now happening. Sigh. Survival games are one of the least interesting genres I’ve come across, ultimately because they all copy each other whilst having very few original ideas of their own.
I would hate to think that we, as a species, have run out of original ideas. I certainly haven’t! I suppose it’s just playing it safe for those who have, though. Blargh.
It’s another one of those days where I wish I could skip ahead a few hundred years whilst humanity plays catch-up. Does no one tire of the same homogeneity all the time? It’s the equivalent of eating flavourless, cheap porridge for every meal, every day. And somehow loving it. Bizarre.

You don’t go to a movie featuring giant robots to watch people act.

Bleh, sounds boring.

Instead, how about a game where people live on giants the size of buildings or countries, just as bacteria infest humans.

Each giant is a nation state unto itself, as the giant grows bigger (due to resource consumption or leveling or whatever) so does the nation of people parasite which can expand their “country”.

Large enough giants can even have smaller giants living on them. 

Little do all these people and giants know, that the world that they live on is actually one gigantic earth sized giant floating in space….
