Santa Rosa, CA – February 6, 2014 – WrightWerx is proud to announce the return of their “Mecha vs Kaiju” role playing game through the Kickstarter crowdfunding website. Mecha vs Kaiju is an anime-inspired tabletop science fiction RPG, where Japan fights against the constant assaults of giant monsters by harnessing the power of mighty robots. Game players take the role of daring pilots, who pit their mecha machines against the unstoppable kaiju monsters.

With the success of last Summer’s “Pacific Rim”, and the upcoming reboot of the “Godzilla” franchise, now seems an ideal time for a game that allows players to create their own giant monster adventures. Writer Johnathan Wright has previously brought his love of Japanese pop culture to the tabletop in 2006, when his original Mecha vs Kaiju setting won a contest and was published in Green Ronin’s True20 system. Players praised the full sourcebook which followed for its campaign details. Now Johnathan is bringing this setting to the Fate Core rule-set, adding innovative systems for anime-inspired archetypes, stunts, and fully customizable mecha and kaiju creation to this already robust game engine.

Kickstarter is the world’s biggest crowdfunding platform and has helped hundreds of game writers fund their projects, including the creators of Fate Core itself. The Mecha vs Kaiju Kickstarter launches on Saturday Feb. 8th and runs until Sunday May 9th. Please feel free to contact Writer/Publisher Johnathan Wright if you have any questions.

I grew up watching old science fiction movies, and my favorite was always the mighty Godzilla! In 1985 my geek dreams came true when a new Godzilla movie came to theatres. Over the next 15 years a new generation of films brought the kaiju into the modern age.

Meanwhile my daily cartoon intake had always involved Japanese anime. The simplistic adventures of Speed Racer progressed to the more mature plot and characters of Star Blazers. But it was the military mecha of Macross and Gundam that captivated my attention. I started watching for the giant robot action, but was quickly moved by the drama of these soldiers and their lives. Japanese cartoons did not talk down to me the way American animation often did; anime was a respected art form there, and watching imports made me feel like a connoisseur.

It was this love of the genre that inspired me to begin work on the “Mecha vs. Kaiju” role playing game. I wanted to create a setting that would capture all the things I loved about Japanese popular culture. In 2008 I published the first edition of "Mecha vs. Kaiju" for the True 20 Role Playing Game. At that time giant robots fighting giant monsters was a niche market. Today we stand at the dawn of a kaiju renaissance, from angry trolls in Norway to extra-dimensional monsters at the bottom of the Pacific, to the upcoming relaunch of the king of monsters himself next year, now is the time for the return of Mecha vs. Kaiju!
