Kaiju Rampage Playtest File

Watermarked PDF

The Kaiju Rampage Playtest file is a reimagining of my game Giant Monster Rampage. The reason for the new title is to differentiate it from GMR, at least until playtesting for the game is complete. At that time, the title may be changed to Giant Monster Rampage 4th edition, or it may remain Kaiju Rampage. I will not decide which title to use until I am ready to publish the final version of the game.

I am going to be doing things a bit different with this edition of the game. I want to release the game as soon as possible, but I also don't want to rush it. I want to be able to give you a solid game that plays well and that has a rulebook that is easy to read with lots of great artwork. In order to do that I need more playtesters and I need to generate some funds to pay for the artwork, editing, and layout.

In order to achieve both of those things at the same time, I have decided to release the beta version of the game for sale here on Wargame Vault. The money I make off the playtest version will be used to fund the things I mentioned earlier. I also hope that those of you who are willing to purchase the playtest PDF will also be willing to send in feedback on the game, thus helping to increase the amount of playtest data available to me to make the game better.

The playtest file will remain for sale until I feel the game is ready for the next step. During this time, the file will be updated as needed once enough playtest reports have been evaluated, therefore it is important to keep notifications about the file turned on if you want to receive the most recent version of the file. Once I reach the next step, the game will be removed from Wargame Vault as I start the process of securing art and finding an editor and graphic designer.

The finished game will first be available only in print. I have not decided if I will release a PDF version of the finished book. If I do, it will likely be a few years after I release the print version.

NOTE: The Kaiju Rampage Playtest file is a text only PDF containing the beta rules for the game. This is not the final version of the game. The purpose of this file is to gather playtest feedback and to generate income to pay for a print edition of the game.

are the mechanics different than GMR or atomic super humans?

The core mechanics are very similar with a few significant changes that hopefully enhance the way the game plays.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
