World War Kaiju, Cold Warriors And Something Special For Bleeding Cool Kickstarters

June 23rd - via:
So why Kaiju? And why now? The idea for World War Kaiju came about roughly two years ago. I was coming off of putting the finishing touches on Titanium Rain 2 and needed some time to get away from the heavy military themes that dominated that book. So what did I do? I took a trip back to some of the better memories of my youth. I immersed myself in the golden age of kaiju cinema—Godzilla, Gamera, King Ghidorah: The Three-Headed Monster. I figured these films would be a perfect escape from the bleak headspace that comes with composing an unforgiving story about war. So then I watched Gojira, the original Godzilla. You know, the Japanese version which includes all the references to Hiroshima and Nagasaki. (Read More)
