McDROID and Demo Released

The McDROID Website offers the release of McDROID, indie developer Elefantopia's debut strategy game for Windows, OS X, and Linux. They call the game the "colourful cel-shaded love child" of R-TYPE and Dune 2, and offer a playable demo to experience that firsthand. Here's word: "Control McDROID a modular weapon droid whose areas of expertize are combat and farming. Whilst travelling through the deepest darkest fringes of unexplored space, MCDROID’s shuttle collides with space debris and crash lands on the unchartered Planet M. Survival is paramount as McDROID defends the crashed shuttle and his only means of escape." The game is currently in a paid beta phase, and can be purchased through Desura and IndieGameStand, where it's currently on sale, and there is also a Steam Greenlight campaign to drum up support for its official full release.

Tried the demo. Seems like a fun little title. You basically start with a "McDroid" and some hardpoints to upgrade with weapons. You can research upgrades for the weapons hardpoints as well as your McDroid (better armor, faster repair speed, and the like). Has a bit of the ol' tongue in cheek humor, too, just to keep things going.

Looks to me to be some sorta tower defense hybrid.

Which is fine, since I like tower defense
