1.1.5 Update - Better Custom Levels!

You can now draw your own layouts for custom maps (while still making use of the game's procedural-content-based trappings) - for bonus points, you can now also export/import your custom challenges to share them with others!

The 1.1 Update is live!

The biggest update so far to Not the Robots has just gone online!



Some highlights:

* Our community's most-requested feature: Save&Quit for Campaign Mode
* We ported the game to our first Android device (Amazon's FireTV) - as a carryover benefit, desktop users who weren't already running the game on max settings should see a general performance boost
* A overhaul to the general loading screen with tips & tricks, cooler transitions, and one of those fun "loading spinner" animations
* Revamped background decorations during gameplay (probably the ugliest part of the original game!)
* The "Unlock All" cheat code now unlocks You Find Yourself In A Room 2, a hidden sequel that was previously only accessible by completing all 20 Challenge levels
* Many other tweaks and improvements, including an improved "x-ray" effect for the player character, prettier spacial UI elements (like Scanners, Sequence numbers, and tutorial popups), and more

It's good so far. Controllers work fine, and seems like it would be good to play on a TV. Linux support is great, and the option to use Linux and a controller makes this perfect for Steam OS.

A simple but fun stealth game where the levels randomly generate. The idea is to eat enough furniture (food) in order to trigger the exit, though doing so removes the available cover used to hide from sentries and the like. Worth the 99 cents I paid.

This game is amazing! I absolutly love it! It's fun, entertaining, a little dark and easy to learn. I'm a little sad it's so cheap, when i saw it was only 0.99 on sale it made me wonder if it was that good a game. But i got it and I love it, it has a bit more mysterious and interesting storey than i expected. If you see this game when it isn't on sale i'd still recommend it, support the developer as he has made some other really great games. All in all i love this game and would recommend it. 10/10

Very nice and smooth game controls. Simple game style, but manages to keep you on edge. The satisfaction of the furniture being destroyed is just beyond what I would have expected. Add this with randomly generated game design, different game modes, added obstacles, and side objective, you get an great game for a cheap price.

A very fun little game. Randomly generated maps and challenges are very fun to play which this game has many of.

To be honest, I bought it because it was just $0.99, but turns out it's really fun.If you're a "big" fan of stealthy games, you'll like it.Buy it (if it's still $0.99).

Long story short, you're a robot and eat furnitures without getting caught.I'm at building 6 floor 1 right now.So far, I've seen short blue lasers, long yellow lasers, and hot floors and sentries.There is no way avoiding blue lasers.You have to be out of its sight if you don't wanna get hurt.And yellow lasers; You can just avoid them by crouching (press shift).Hot floors are just... hot floors.They hurt you if you stand on them.And the worst enemy in the game is sentries I guess.Once they see you, they start looking for you.And when they see you, they just shoot non-stop.

And the most fun part is : If you die, you start over.Thank god I still haven't.

First u must eat the furnitures in every floor then u can go another floor if your eat atatus is full bar..
This game is simple but u must have strategy to win floor by floor..
So you can refresh your brain with this game..
Lets come to eat,, eat n eat.. :D

In the loading screen the say that this game is influenced by Desktop Dungeons and Spellunker. There is not a lot in common with those games except the fun i have playing it. Every levels are random generated, there is a load of chalenges and game modes. Really worth the price.
you can ajust control on a gamepad, it work really well with the F710. ( a lot of game are supossed to support gamepad but don't work with mine. Maybe because i have a mac.)
so if you like rogue-like and stealth game this is for you.
