Gigantic is a free-to-play competitive action title with MOBA trappings developed by Motiga. Even though it's gorgeously rendered, light-hearted and charming, Gigantic is for enthusiast gamers and pits teams of five heroes and their massive Guardians against each other in epic battles across a variety of maps. The game combines explosive combat with fast-paced teamwork, strategy, and skill, as players are required to work together and fight relentlessly to defeat opposing Guardians with spells, guns and swords.
