It's Like League Of Legends, Only With Mechs... And Laser Guns

It's Like League Of Legends. Only With Mechs...And Laser Guns.

Decimal is an in-development indie game from Orb Interactive. On the one hand, it's a MOBA game (ala League of Legends, DOTA). On the other, thank the Maker, it's trying some different things.

The big one is that there aren't any wizards, trolls, swords or spells. It's got a slick sci-fi aesthetic, helped along by the contributions of William Smith, an artist we've featured on Kotaku previously.

But it's also promising some changes on the gaming side of things, like the fact you'll be controlling a squad of troops instead of a single "hero", and that squad can be individually customised by specialising (making one a medic, etc).

Development is being handled by a bunch of former Timegate guys (Section 8), and their Kickstarter campaign is looking for $US500,000. You can see more art and check out further details below.

    MechWarrior DOTA... You might have me there :)

    whats the tactical advantage in having your stomach exposed?

      Distract your enemies with your sexiness! That's how snipers work right? o.0

        because stomachs are sexy.....

          Well it's a bit less overt than having a cleavage window... Or something...

            Interestingly enough, her stomach is covered in all pictures on the kickstarter page.

            its say its more overt because its just as (if not more) nonsensical

            she would look perfectly sexy without her gut showing

    This what I want to see more of - Sci-fi > fantasy

    Loving the look of this. I really do prefer gritty mech games over super polished ones though.

    I have to say that this really doesn't LOOK like a MOBA no matter what they say- the pacing looks glacial and it looks to be lacking in the one of the most prominent features that defines a MOBA game- having playable characters with unique personalities.

    The female characters all wear skintight combat suits with exposed midriffs and accentuated boobs.

    OK, it's a MOBA alright...
