Kaiju is a cancelled real-time strategy game that was in development by DigiFX Interactive around 1996 / 1997, planned to be released on PC and Mac. Players could choose between 2 factions: kaijus (those giant monsters from classic Japanese movies) and humans. Depending on which faction you would play as your objective would be to protect or destroy cities.
“The city is under attack! Giant monsters breathing fire are leveling every building in sight. It is up to you to mobilize your forces and develop new technologies in order to stop these giant creatures, or choose to command a cadre’ of crazed dinosaurs, giant lizards, sea monsters, radioactive space monsters, “King Congo” (the biggest ape you ever saw) and other huge destructive creatures whose sole purpose is to obliterate mankind! No this isn’t just a “kill the bad guy” strategy game…it’s total destruction!
KAIJU is a Windows 95 and Macintosh “real time” strategy game with an entirely new twist! KAIJU contains one of the most unique and highly playable battle and economic systems in existence. Players can choose either the humans or the monsters! As the humans, the player must defend the cities from the creatures by using all the resources available. As monsters, the player must crush, stomp and obliterate every human (and everything) in sight! We’re not kidding, this game allows total destruction of everything!”
Over 40 new units unique to KAIJU, including aircraft carriers, super attack planes, phase cannons, plasma mines, and artificial lightning generators, and “special” characters such as the “PSI”, the “Hero”, the “Brainy guy”, and the “Military guy”,
Create special characters that affect ‘normal’ units and structures. Just one example includes a unique character called a “PSI” that uses a sixth sense to battle the monsters. If the “PSI” enters a Radar Station, it becomes a “Monster Control Tower”, with the ability to ‘take control’ of any monster for a period of time.
Unfortunately DigiFX Interactive closed down in late 1997 due to financial issues. When the team was disbanded they were also working on other canned titles such as DigiFX Mission to Nexus Prime and Mythos.

Earthquakes and lava eruptions which when triggered form entirely new terrain maps on the fly! Units and vehicles can fall through cracked ice, sink in quicksand and be crushed by falling meteors.
You’ll search the ruins of advanced civilizations, seek out and destroy enemy patrols, rescue critically important allies, defend frontier bases, and face vicious air assaults.
Players must also combat the “the local” creatures which inhabit the world in addition to enemy units! Place units and vehicles in “hidden caverns” to ambush your opponents!
Unique visual model which allows the player to see the terrain but not your enemy! 30 different missions (15 each side) all ordered in a linear storyline written by Timothy Zahn! Over 30 multi-player missions allow you to “team up” for 8 player cooperative play over a LAN (Local Area Network) A communications network that serves users within a confined geographical area. The “clients” are the user’s workstations typically running Windows, although Mac and Linux clients are also used. or the Internet.
