A new board game has turned up on Kickstarter and it looks pretty awesome. If you liked Mechwarrior back in the day, just go ahead and get out your credit card. The game is called GKR: Heavy Hitters and it’s about robots trying to destroy each other in abandoned cities. It’s glorious.

In case you were wondering, GKR = Giant Killer Robots. The 2 to 4 player board game comes from visual effects studio Weta Workshop and game maker Cryptozoic, and involves using your mech and pilot to either salvage resources or destroy enemy mechs along the way.
