“I will drive Slothgar into the future.”  The incomprehensible words, uttered by one of the playtesters, that christened this mech.  The idea for a giant, inflatable mech made out of some strange, super-strong polymer was definitely a break from traditional conceptions of what a mech is or can be.

Oddly cute.  Another thing not normally spoken in regards to  a mech.  But we love Slothgar, and what this giant, almost huggable mech represents–we’re not sure what that is, but we’re pretty sure it has to do with childlike wonder.  Or maybe the immutable, intimidating presence of a minimalist, faceless  monolith that could crush buildings underfoot.  As we said, we’re not sure.
