GameGeex - Gigantic game coming from the lead of StarCraft We don't know much about this game, but based on what we've seen we definitely expect big things.

Two days ago a new game called Gigantic was announced.  Now, games are announced everyday, but there's something special about this game: It's designed by James Phinney, former lead designer of StarCraft and Guild Wars.  Gigantic touts itself as a free-to-play action game, governed by WASD movement and physics-based abilities.  

While they aren't expressly using the term MOBA here,  I think it's safe to say that an action game where you choose your hero to play on the battlefield, select combos and abilities on the fly, and work as a team in a pvp format is most likely a MOBA.  The Gigantic sight does mention that each team will be protecting and building up a Guardian on the battlefield, so perhaps this will be their defining characteristic.  I just hope that it won't end up being a little more than a massive gimmick.

This is the first game from Bellvue-based Motiga, and if this is what they have to offer us, I expect gigantic things from them. Get it?  Gigantic?  Because that's the name of their game?  I slay me.  Hit the jump for the announcement trailer and screenshots.  We will learn more about the game at PAX Prime in September.
