I hate to be a party pooper, but April Fool’s Day kinda sucks. At best you get some chuckle-worthy jokes; at worst you get ill-intended pranks or fake announcements that get people’s hopes up only to have them come crashing down when they remember it’s April 1st. No me gusta.
So, I’m going to alleviate some of the stress of the day by giving away some copies of this awesome-looking mech action game, Metal Unit. This is not a joke, folks — this is real!
Things have kind of taken a turn for the worst on Earth. Monsters are emerging from the land and seas, terrorizing what’s left of humanity, while aliens reign down from the heavens, hellbent on ruling the planet. It’s a lot. As a result, monsters, machines, and aliens are everywhere pretty much doing what they want. Good thing you can control a mech suit to fight them all! This action-RPG gives players guns, swords, dashes, and a whole slew of mech-related abilities to take out anything and everything in their path to become the ultimate badass. Check out some game features:
- Action-Packed Battle System — You can dash to evade enemies or go on the offensive and chain multiple weapon attacks together to perform devastating combos. The wide of range of melee and ranged weapons at your disposal also give you the ultimate flexibility to take out enemies any way you see fit.
- Huge & Diverse Environments — You can choose to explore the sprawling surface of the planet or delve deep inside mysterious dungeons. Traveling around the world will progress the story, while going underground offers bigger rewards that may come at a heavy price…
- Your Decisions Matter — The characters in Metal Unit will suffer through corruption, betrayal and death. But your decisions carry significant weight in key dialogues and certain actions during the game.
- Roguelite Elements — Upon death the game will convert all equipped items into permanent research points. The points can then be used to unlock new items and skills. You will constantly receive weapons of varying utility and will need to adapt your strategy to match your current equipment.
You’ll be happy to mech this game’s acquaintance, teehee.
