Terror of Hemasaurus announces PC and Console release dates

Terror of Hemasaurus, a Kaiju-themed indie similar to the arcade classic Rampage, has finally revealed the launch dates for both PC and multiple consoles. The game will be available for PC owners soon on October 17th, 2022. Console users can play the game this December, with PlayStation on the 5th, Nintendo Switch on the 6th, and Xbox on the 7th.

Here’s the big announcement from indie developer Loren Lemcke’s Twitter feed, after a 3-year journey:

Terror of Hemasaurus has smartly capitalized on the broader Kaiju genre, referencing familiar faces alongside some original creations. All of the existing trailers have proudly leaned into retro fun, borrowing the same tongue-in-cheek attitude, simplicity, and chaos that made Rampage so appealing.

Even further, the announcement trailer from last year even promises to add the same co-op system too, and this definitely deserves to be a party game. Fortunately, it’ll support up to four players, to live out all those Kaiju team-up movies. Very few games offer this kind of co-op, outside of other retro-influenced titles, such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge.

The physics of the non-stop destruction play a large role in the charm and personality of Terror of Hemasaurus. So do the cartoonish bloodiness and humans, which provide hilarious interactions, as well as a religious angle akin to Cult of the Lamb. These elements will be crucial to help the game toe the line between becoming a retread or a cozy homage.

To have a look at some of the gameplay for yourself, you can check out the original announcement trailer:

This game probably won’t be for everyone, but it clearly understands its audience, and they should be completely satisfied. The variety of characters, each with their own special moves, will allow for more combinations and add replay value. With so many platforms, this has the potential to really take off.
