A downloadable game

HILT // BLADE is a Powered by the Apocalypse roleplaying game that tasks its PCs with taking up the role of teenage mecha pilots, instrumentalized by a massive paramilitary organization to fight giant monsters that threaten humanity itself.

Gameplay occurs in two distinct phases: in the first, the PCs interact and try to create stronger bonds between one another -- something easier said than done. In the second phase, the PCs must combat a giant monster, risking everything for a society that takes them for granted.

The game centers interpersonal interaction and the milieu of coming-of-age tropes common across genres in anime, but uses the template of mecha anime specifically to take the players through the highs and lows of both social and violent conflict.
