I got to play this with my friend Alex and we had a total blast with it! (If you'd like me to change the thumbnail image on this or anything, drop me a line!)
REV YOUR ENGINES
A downloadable game
The year is 2043. For decades, mechs known as REAVERS have dominated popular culture. They appear in movies, TV shows, even one particularly ill-advised musical - but nowhere have they been more popular than in REAVER fights. The new craze among kids and teenagers have swept the world. Small miniatures of REAVER mechs clash on the battlefield, controlled from afar by their pilots using phone-like apparatuses. Kids duke it out on the streets, dreaming of making it big enough to participate in the Showdown - the ultimate tournament of REAVER fights.
And you? You are going straight to the top.

Rev Your Engines does away with the war and murder of the mecha genre and instead frames mechs in an even more terrifying arena: competitive children’s sports. The game cites Gundam Build Fighters and Yu-Gi-Oh as inspirations, but I can’t help but think of it as essentially a Battlebots RPG. You play as two teenage rivals, each certain that they can pilot their miniature mechs straight to the top. This is a game about the emotional drama and personal conflict that is sparked by competition, and uses an absurd combination of tic-tac-toe and flashbacks to simulate your favorite competitive anime.
