Gigantic is back... via the Rampage Edition, but let me say this first!

I thoroughly enjoyed Gigantic for the most part back in it's free-to-play days, and could totally understand why it was an award winning MOBA. It sealed the deal for "Best MOBA" back at GAMESCOM 2016! What made it even better is that it didn't require a lot of oomph from your PC to enjoy, and I even found myself playing it on a laptop with decent specs after a certain shipping company lost my gaming laptop and it had to be replaced (long story). Anyway, it doesn't hurt for it to be back in paid form... but I do have my reservations.

A number of you can pull up Gigantic right now (if you owned the game) and see that there's a notice tucked in there that reads: At the request of the publisher, Gigantic is unlisted on the Steam store and will not appear in search.

What's stopping that from happening with the paid version? I get that there was a developer and publisher swap from Motiga Inc. & Perfect World Entertainment... to Abstraction Games & Gearbox Publishing, but will the old door be accessible to previous players who dropped coin to support it initially or will we be expected to enter the game through a new paygate with fingers crossed that it will remain up and running this time around? I get it, new ownership... but the paranoia's real folks.

To potentially answer my own question (to a certan degree) with an answer from Gearbox:

Gigantic: Rampage Edition is developed by Abstraction Games, keeping the core of what made Gigantic special, while adding exciting new features. - Gigantic FAQ

This likely means that the build recycled a number of assets we're familiar with and possibly polished them up through a new engine of sorts... without the need to fully program everything (since the source code was already there). So it may look the same, but it may be a better looking clone. Plus the system requirements have been bumped up... which certainly indicates a change. I remain optimistic until launch because of what's listed in the original's system requirements.

I'm happy to see that it's back, and the least they can do with the hero shooter is allow gamers to take it under our wing if Gearbox ever gets the urge to walk away.

By the way, someone asked why we promote the Purple seat cushion so much. The reason being is that there are a number of adult gamers and some underage gamers dealing with back issues. There are gamers who would love to game on PC, but... it's literally a pain for them to sit in a PC chair compared to their couch. It could be pain from a car accident, a workplace injury, or something else that occurred off the clock. While we do recommend getting up to stretch and even partiking in exercise... this helps. The Cushion Designed for Gaming!
