Brigador adds new pilots & units to raise hell all day long

Gleeful synthwave mech-warcrime shooter Brigador got just that little bit better today, and it was already good enough to keep me coming back for the occasional spin well over a year from its launch. In what developers Stellar Jockeys are calling the 'Nĭ Hăo a Tutti' update (on account of adding Chinese & Italian localisations), the lighting engine has been overhauled, and a bunch of…

GOG’s Summer Sale opens with a Xenonauts giveaway

Maybe my perception of time is getting a bit wonky in my old age, but didn't we just finish Spring Sale season a week or two ago? No matter - cheap games are always in style. GOG's summer sale opens with a giveaway of Goldhawk Interactive's solid X-Com tribute Xenonauts. GOG also asked us to pick a few favourites from the sale, so check out our…

Brigador All Saints update adds horns and more

My Fiat Punto might not be an armoured, rocket launcher wielding machine of death, mayhem and destruction - but it was unambiguously superior to the vehicles from isometric mech game Brigador in one key respect. Before the latest Brigador update, only my Fiat was capable of alerting everyone nearby to my presence/annoyance with an obnoxious beeping sound. That's all changed with the the All Saints…

Brigador: Up-Armored Edition ‘relaunches’ the mech combat game

Stellar Jockeys have released Brigador: Up-Armored Edition [official site], a "re-launch" of their excellent isometric mech combat game bringing a new campaign, a rebalancing, and graphical upgrades including better explosions. Don't mind the name: the Up-Armored Edition comes as a free update, not a separate release.

New vehicles stomp, roll, and hover into Brigador

A new update and a sale is news exciting enough for a game as fun as Brigador [official site], but this is just a teaser for more to come. Brigador developers Stellar Jockeys have announced that they'll "re-launch" the isometric tactical mech action game in June with a big update that'll add a new intro campaign along with even more vehicles and more. Even at…

Brigador Adds New Levels, New Mechs For Halloween

The mysterious village of Brigadoon emerged from the mists over Halloween weekend to receive a series of free content updates. Wait. Brigador [official site]. Brigador the city-smashing stompy mech shooter. The Brigador which Alec's Wot I Think declared "glorious to behold". That's less thematically appropriate for Halloween, but I suppose adding new levels and mechs to Brigador makes more sense than adding deathbots to a…

Feature: Or 'the one where you trash a city in a mech'

Brigador review

Ice-cool cyberpunk, mass destruction, Syndicate-esque pro-tyranny tone, vast cityscapes, fluid action. Consequence-free chaos in the city of tomorrow. With customisable mechs. And hover-tanks. And Killdozers. And a neo-80s soundtrack. You're gonna love Brigador [official site] - unless you're looking for a mech strategy game.

Pilot Mechs In Brigador’s Chill Cityscape, Out Now

Mech combat game Brigador is out today. It's a game about mercenary mechs-for-hire causing destruction in an isometric city. I played an early build of it and it had real promise, as aside from looking great its combat supported stealth runs, zippy raids, and straightforward damage dealing. We'll perhaps have some thoughts on it later, but for now you might want to watch its launch…

Isometric Action: Brigador Stomps Into Early Access

What, or who, is a brigador? I'm not sure, but it seems to involve rocking around futurecities in legged, tracked, and hovering vehicles blowing the heck out of hordes of enemies so... whatever it is, I'm onboard. Looking a touch like Syndicate with customisable deathbots, isometric shooter Brigador [official site] today launched into Early Access. I realise I'm a day early to formally tell you…

Brigador Robo-Stomps Onto Early Access October 20th

Brigador [official site] is a sort've mech-based Syndicate, giving you contracts to carry out on isometric maps that involve a bit of stealth and then a lot of blowing things up in your selected vehicle. Graham has spent a lot of time calling it cool since mid-2014 and it's finally getting into a playable state on October 20th. That will be an Early Access release with a…

Brigador Is Syndicate Crossed With Walker, And Very Cool

Brigador is cool. I've had a build for the isometric mech combat game for a week now, and I've spent that time playing it and considering it and this is the core of my thinking. Its hyper-detailed pixel art nightscapes are cool. Its electronic music by Makeup & Vanity Set is cool. Its mixture of all-out combat and tactical semi-stealth is cool. Its evocation of…

Meching Your Mind Up: Five New Minutes Of Brigador

We previously covered Brigador when it was called Matador, and while the name has changed the subject remains the same: mech combat in a dark, futuristic world. Its isometric perspective and dimly lit city streets make it look a touch like Syndicate, but the destructive potential of its stompy bots mean that it plays like something else. There's a new five-minute long video below showing…
