What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“MiniBotz is the first indie game development produced by our small dev team. We are finally ready to involve the public with its development, but we aren’t quite ready for a final release. Currently we have two game modes available for play (Local multiplayer and single-player survival mode), and would like to include the community as part of our balancing and bug testing phase - in addition to gauging the reaction to future content.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Three months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We intend to add four player co-op survival mode (online multi-player), and networked multiplayer soon after the early access release. Additional difficulty modes, bots, maps, skins, power-ups, and game modes are also slated depending on the reaction to the game. Planned game modes would be such as "King of the Hill" or "Soccer/Football”.

We’d also like to implement level streaming that allows for massive arena based multiplayer games, with up to as many as 24 players on one map (if our ambitions can be realized).”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Single-player and Multi-player survival mode is available for play. A player takes control of 1 of 4 bots (of their choice), and attempts to achieve a high score by killing as many enemies as possible - while they rush you in endless waves. There are two types of enemy to choose between (Cockroaches or Gummy Bears), which are fundamentally identical in terms of gameplay - but use different models/animations depending on player preference. There are also “power-ups” that augment/improve your character for a short time, that a player must collect during gameplay (extra damage, health, etc). Each player character has a unique model/animation set, as well as a unique set of attacks.

Local multi-player mode is also available for play. This feature centers around arena-style combat between the available player characters, supporting between 2 to 4 players. Each player starts with a predetermined amount of health, and then attempts to defeat the other characters through melée and projectile based combat in an effort to be the last remaining combatant. This mode also incorporates the power-up system described in survival.

We currently have 4 unique character robots to choose from, across 5 various maps, and the choice between two enemies on survival mode.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“No.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We would like to include the community during the balancing phase (helping to determine which bots/power-up's need buffs/nerfs), as well as keeping an eye out for exploits/bugs in existing content. Should the reaction be positive we would also like to involve them during the new content development phases, such as utilizing suggestions for new character bots, maps, power-ups, skins, game modes - anything that players might find fun!”
