“He published only one novella in book form during his life, yet his influence on modern horror has been huge. There is no Stephen King without Lovecraft, no Ridley Scott Alien series, no body-horror, no X Files, no Guillermo del Toro films. Thousands of writers continue to use Lovecraft’s cosmogony of alien gods. He has influenced contemporary philosophy, Goth and Black Metal music, Japanese manga, and there are even religions that worship Lovecraft’s fictional god ‘Cthulhu’.”

Did you guys like the Pipeworks/Atari Godzilla video game trilogy (Destroy All Monsters Melee, Save the Earth and Unleashed)? Who didn’t?! Do you wish they’d make a fourth installment in the series, or at least a new, similar Godzilla/giant monster fighting game? Who doesn’t?! As such, you should really check this link out.
Simon Strange, one of the main guys behind the trilogy, is trying to create a new kaiju fighting game using the same tools and technology as the Pipeworks games. But he needs our help! The more we donate, the better this game can be. And it doesn’t just help him, we can take part in the rewards as well, ranging from getting a free copy of the game once it’s complete, to actually getting monsters of our own creation in the game itself!
And if that’s not enough to entice you, if the game does well enough and makes enough money, we might even be able to bring other franchises into the game, allowing such epic combinations as Godzilla vs. King Kong vs. Gamera vs. Ultraman! Or even Rodan vs. Gorgo vs. Cthulhu vs. Staypuft Marshmallow Man!
So yeah. If you like video games and giant monsters and especially video games about giant monsters, please help us out. At the very least, spread the word! This thing has the potential to become the greatest giant monster game of all time.
