Nyu Media announced today that Gigantic Army, a side-scrolling mech shooter developed for Windows and Linux, is available now via Steam. It features 42 achievements, Steam trading cards, plus a printable retro-style DVD case insert and CD/DVD label file, allowing gamers to extend Gigantic Army' retro goodness into physical reality.
It is the 21st century and Earth is at war with the Ramulons - an alien race determined to stop humanity's advance into space. Mankind's war against the Ramulons has reached the planet Ramulon itself and it is now down to you to pilot the 'GMR-34 SALADIN' - a Manned Combat Robot - and take on the Ramulon army. You can customize your arsenal of explosive, projectile and plasma weapons, and combine them with melee attacks, thrusters and shield to take the fight to the enemy and end the conflict.
