Seemed like more people were interested in DP9's mecha stuff though. Nice looking, but it never really grabbed me that much.
RTal also made Castle Falkenstein which looked really fun too.
The DP9 line had the minis skirmish game driving it, but the RPG rules were very meh. It was servicable enough, but Mekton from the start was built around the concept of building not just your own character, but also your own mechs, and from any genre/style/size. The mech building rules for Mekton were very nice, and there really wasn't any effort made to equate them in scale with the human characters. So it avoided the Palladium SDC/MDC quagmire. If you were unfortunate enough to get blasted by a mecha, you were just dead.
I picked up some of the Rtal Cyberpunk stuff to add into the after Rimfire portion of that campaign, but the campaign died not too long after.
