GKR: Heavy Hitters (GKR = Giant Killer Robots) is heading to Gen Con and will be showing off demos of the game along the way at various game shops. GKR is an augmented reality miniature board game from Weta Workshop, Cryptozoic, and Evolver Studios.
The year is 2150.
Mega corporations rule the world of GKR, fighting for control over cities long destroyed and abandoned after a devastating world war 100 years earlier.
Like MODERN DAY GLADIATORS GIANT KILLER ROBOT battles are broadcast across the globe as entertainment for the masses.
These sponsored robot armies battle in proxy as a way to humiliate and financially break their competition, as well as profit off the entertainment advertising and promotion during these global events.
What’s even more fun is the GKR crew are showing off their travels. If you get a chance, absolutely check out a demo and if you’re not able to, we’ll have coverage at Gen Con.
