A playable demo for Retro Machina
is now available for Windows
offering the chance to check out this single-player action/exploration game set
in a retro future. This paves the way for the full release of the game, which is
planned for Q2 of this year. Here's more on the game itself as well as the
Set in a world hundreds of years from now that has long been devoid
of humanity, Retro Machina puts players in the metal-shoes of a tiny robot as he
searches for the answers to a great mystery — “What the heck happened to the
humans who used to live here?” Explore a beautiful world inspired by American
futurist and social engineer Jacque Fresco’s art and help our plucky protagonist
get to the bottom of things.
In this latest demo, players will get a glimpse into the city of Endeavor, a
stunning metropolis protected from the outside world by an enormous glass dome.
A host of mechanized workers keeps things in tip-top shape, but for whom? And
why? Take control of a plucky worker bot who has been tossed out of the city for
being imperfect and must explore the ruins of a world chock full of mystery and
adventure in his quest to return to Endeavour City. Take control of your
mechanical kin and hack your way through five beautiful and unique biomes,
solving puzzles, evading traps, and avoiding injury — or worse.
Key Features of Retro Machina:
- Missing: Humanity — Endeavor City is dutifully maintained by a
fleet of dedicated robot workers, keeping things in tip-top shape for their
human masters...only, there haven’t been any humans seen in a really, really
long time. It’s up to you to get to the bottom of this enigma and unravel
the mystery of the missing humans!
- Can’t Someone Else Do It? — Use your hacking abilities to
manipulate and control your foes, changing them into helpful allies or
turning them against each other! Some puzzles simply can’t be solved on your
own, and there’s no shame in asking for — or simply demanding — help from
electronic pals better equipped for the situation.
- The Future is Bleak and Beautiful — Explore five hand-drawn and
entirely unique biomes, including the abandoned Nucleonics Labs, the
run-down Atomic City, the wet-n-wild (really, really wet now) Marine Nation,
and the intimidating and mysterious Serendipity Mountain.
- Inspired by the Greats — The world of Retro Machina is exactly
what it says on the tin, taking inspiration from science-fiction greats like
Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov, and the legendary futurist concept artist
