Usually, when we think about video games, we think of games made in western countries or Japan. But did you know we have some good Malaysian-made games as well? For example, No Straight Roads, a music-based action-adventure game created by Metronomik, and Postknight, an RPG adventure mobile game created by Kurechii for Android and iOS.
The latest made-in-Malaysia game to grace the PC, PS4 and PS5 consoles is GigaBash. The title was developed by Passion Republic and they have more than 12 years of experience helping other big studios develop triple-A titles such as Uncharted 4, Batman Arkham Knight, Gears of War 4, Injustice 2, Dark Souls 3, Elden Ring and many other titles.
According to the studio, GigaBash is:
A multiplayer arena brawler with gigantic film-inspired kaiju, larger-than-life heroes, earth-shattering special attacks and fully destructible environments.Passion Republic Games
At the time of writing, the game is getting “Very Positive” reviews on Steam. Other video game sites such as IGN and Push Square gave it a 7/10 score. This is an amazing achievement for the studio’s first title.
GigaBash was praised for getting the gameplay and controls right, and the multiplayer is a blast. However, the game’s story mode is short and not so great if you play solo.
So if you want to have some good, crazy fun with your friends, why not give this title a shot and help support Malaysians at the same time?
We are starting to see more great games coming out of this nation as well. We can’t wait to see what other game studios in Malaysia have in store for us.
