I am amazed that there is no thread about this game, yet. It has the finest Ameritrash-theme and with Richard Garfield being the designer has the potential to be an interesting game, too.
So has anyone any more info about this game?

I am just as intrigued, but for now there doesn't seem to be any more info for the moment than what is in the description of the game in this page...

As the game is scheduled to be published in september/october, I guess we will know more soon...

I have some news. First, the release date has been pushed to november 2010.
Also, there will be demos of this game at Le Monde du jeu in Paris the 10th of September. I will be there and I intend to try the game so I will be able to tell you more after that.

And if you want to find out information on Iello future games, don't go on the website, there is nothing in there. The place to look is Iello Facebook page.

Just played it today. I have no time for a full review (I'll do that sunday or monday), but in a few words, it is a very light and fun game. It plays very quickly, and the rules can be explained in a few minutes. But even if it is very light, it has some strategic choices. You can get victory points from dice, or from being the king of tokyo. You can try to win by eliminating all other players. You can play offense (make lots of damage to other players) or defense (heal your wounds before attacking). You can try to collect lots of energy to get new powers and become more powerful.
And all this from a selection of dice (as in RTTA).

No, it won't. Should be published end of the year, maybe beginning of 2011.

I'm intrigued. Is it comparable to Monsterpocalypse by Privateer Press?

The only thing that is similar is that both of them use Dice. The Gameplay is not compareable by the slightest.

But both are great games that are lot of fun to play!
