Robo Instructus Released

Robo Instructus is now available on Itch.io and Steam, offering a puzzle game for Windows and macOS where you control a robot to complete tasks through a programming language. This can be seen in action in this gameplay trailer and a playable demo offers the chance to check this out firsthand. In the way a Thermos can both heat or cool, word is this will provide challenges even if you are already a programmer, while being simple enough to be played by those with no coding experience. Here's word:

In Robo Instructus, players will discover a hidden language and explore the spirit of creativity - learning to program a salvage robot on a forgotten alien world. As players unravel the robot's functionality, they will learn new programming commands, allowing them to remotely manipulate the robot through a range of hostile and dangerous environments, uncovering an intricate web of sci-fi storytelling along the way.

As your code becomes more efficient, so too will your strategic options - opening up a multitude of ways to overcome each challenge and delve deeper into the game's intricate world.

Presenting an in-game scripting language, based on existing programming languages, Robo Instructus is designed to provide a fascinating, explorative challenge to coders and non-coders alike. The game, much like the story, is a puzzle that players must unravel as they progress.

Solo developer Alex Butler said: "Each puzzle in Robo Instructus asks you to not only get your robot somewhere, but to properly articulate every step in how it gets there. Succeed and you can embrace a sort of narrative archaeology as you uncover the game’s secrets."

He added: "I've been developing Robo Instructus for two years, the last three months in a beta phase where the game has been polished and improved thanks to the feedback of around 3,000 beta players. So now I'm very excited to see Robo Instructus releasing, and I look forward to the game finding its audience out in the PC gaming wilds."
