Giant monsters have always been a classic staple of video game bestiaries, but titles that actually focus on them as playable characters are something of a rarity. There've been a few throughout the years- Rampage, King of the Monsters, War of the Monsters, the Pipeworks Godzilla games- but they've never been as numerous as their mainstream equivalents. Naturally, with these titles being as scarce as they are, there's always been a desire among fans to see more...
So, for Daikaiju-Gateway's first ever official contest, we're asking you to take a simple one word prompt and develop it into a fully realized, fighting game style kaiju!
Here's what you need to know!
* This is JUST for fun! As cool as it would be, nobody here is actually making a game!
* This is open to EVERYONE, not just members of Daikaiju-Gateway!
* CLARIFICATION: The point of this is to create NEW designs, so please do not submit any pre-

Hyperendocrin Dinosaurs Mod
This hype has been here a while and hopefully for here to last. EmilyStepp is searching people who have knowledge about the engine to help with the mod. People who can transfer the models in game, animate them and add custom sounds maker for all Hypo Dinosaurs. This mod would include all non-top tier carnivores and herbivores. Current concept art for the mod can all be found from our Future Mod Concepts - folder!

Leviasis - Gateway Beatdown Contest entry

* Name: Leviasis

* Prompt: Leviathan, Sword, Assembled

* Locomotion: Primarily swims but can also walk on land.  

* Speed: Average in the water and extremely slow on land.

* Strength: The mother is very strong but the offspring are weak on their own.

* Endurance: Average.

* Agility Traits: The offspring are much more agile swimmers, but the mother can quickly breach the water’s surface in an ambush attack.

* Light Melee: The sword-like flippers are used in its quick attacks.

* Heavy Melee: Its powerful, large jaws are used in its slower attacks.

* Reach: The melee attacks require fairly close contact.

* Special Moves:

Move 1 - An electric shock that immobilizes other species within a 10 meter radius underwater.

Move 2 - A ranged attack using the offspring.  The mother launches the babies from her mouth, utilizing built up water pressure.  This can pierce targets both in and out of the water.

* Biography: She is the mythic sea monster often referred to as Leviathan in ancient religious texts.  She is constantly seeking out her mate, the land dwelling Behemoth.  Her current offspring are aesexually reproduced clones of herself.  She comes ashore every century to seek out her mate, but never travels far enough inland to find him.  She is always growing larger, and the likelihood of encountering her mate dwindles each passing century.     

* Appeal: Her main appeal is her parental nature.  Her offspring offer many gameplay benefits.  They can distract enemies, track prey, and even literally be used as harpoons.  She is not a caring mother however, and they are easily replaced.  Her strengths in water as well as weaknesses on land should offer a balanced experience.  

Tiffany and The Hulk
Here's a fun little 8"x10" pencil and acrylic on watercolor paper commission based on a photo of my client with a Hulk sculpture.  The original picture was taken in heavy green lighting, so I had to reverse engineer what colors there was supposed to be.
