Wouldn’t you love to take your favorite animal, turn it into a 20 foot tall armored robot and strap guns to it? Today’s game spotlight does just that. AMCU: Animal Mechanized Combat Unit, may be newcomers to The Indie Games Room this year, but they’re certainly looking to be a crowd pleaser.
Title – AMCU: Animal Mechanized Combat Unit
Developer - AMCU
Platforms – PC
Genre – Third Person Mecha Shooter
A.M.C.U. (Animal Mechanized Combat Unit) is a 3rd person shooter where players battle against each other using cutting edge military animal machines. Complete various missions while you try to unravel recent events that culminated in the death of 90% of the world's population. Battle in a variety of fully destroyable environments ranging from jungles, to over-grown industrial complexes. Choose between different types of play as you complete missions or do battle against other players.
We at The Indie Games Room had the pleasure of play testing AMCU at the IGR Work in Progress Demo Day. I had a lot of fun with this one. Despite AMCU having one of the longest names to ever grace The Indie Games Room, the idea is quite simple. Get in your giant animal mech and shoot everything!
Using the Unreal Development Kit as a base, AMCU is rocketing towards a professional demo at IGR 2012. Movement animations are top notch and the scenery is expansive and beautiful. I can’t wait to have a deathmatch myself.
Command your very own AMCU at the Indie Games Room 2012!
