for Bot Net: Ramshackle Robotics
now offers a playable
Windows demo for Caffeineware's turn-based strategy game where you do battle
with an army of robots of your own design. This gives a sample of the game,
which is planned for release in autumn of this year after an
planned for next month. Here's
the game's story, and here are some details:
The spaceship is disabled,
the aliens have boarded and killed everyone in sight. Help isn’t coming, and
it’s all on you to take up the roll of the hero, stop the aliens, and save the
day. Only one problem; you aren’t a hero. You don’t have a badass suit of power
armor, or a big gun, or even a crowbar. You are the ship’s IT guy -- and right
now -- you’re locked in your office armed with nothing but a computer, 3D
printer, and a hand full of janitor bots that you've hastily reprogrammed for
combat. Your only hope of survival is to send your bots out to explore the
ruined ship, find vital resources and upgrades, and build a force strong enough
to take back control of the ship. Only then can you get the engines back online
and warp to safety. Bot Net: Ramshackle Robotics is a turn-based strategy
roguelike about fighting off an army of aliens with jury rigged robots. If that
idea appeals to you, you’re probably in the right place.
