What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We’re launching in Early Access to communicate the following: We’re going to be working on this game for a long time to come! Over the coming months we’re going to add new enemies, weapons, levels, game modes and all kinds of wonderful things we haven’t thought of yet!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We’re looking to leave Early Access by the end of 2017, or whenever we feel the main awesome game modes and features we have in mind have been built, proven out with community play and stabilized.”

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

“By time of full release, we expect to complete the story, add more major game modes, weapons, enemies, etc. The Early Access version will be continuously improved up until the full release.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

Story Mode is a work in progress, currently comprised of 20 levels spread over two chapters. More chapters to come!

Endless Mode provides a replayable experience of over 100 levels spread over 5 escalating tiers of difficulty. New levels, upgrades and enemies are continuously added to the game and surfaced here.

Alpha Stability: There may be bugs! Tell us and we’ll fix them!

Heavy iteration: Your favorite feature might get radically changed. Hopefully into something more awesome. Feedback welcome!”

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

“We may gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features, or raise the price on full release.”

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

“Extremely closely. Erik (Mr. Doborog himself) is often streaming game development, art integration and level design live on Twitch, and taking suggestions from viewers in chat. There is a giant duck in the game that’s all the Twitch chat's fault.

There’s a thriving Clone Drone community Discord chat server where players post their streams, clips, gifs, and chat with the (small) game team. We are also active in forum discussions and closely listen to ideas from community members.

We're releasing major updates about every 4-5 weeks. In the 5 months the game was in alpha on itch.io we released 4 major updates!

June 22

0.9.0 – 🔥 FLAME RAPTORS 🔥, New Challenges, and "Repair"!



This release, we've added 🔥 FLAME RAPTORS 🔥, 2 new raptor-based challenges, and a "repair" upgrade!

Flame Raptors!!

Flame Raptors are the most versatile enemies yet -- they breathe fire:



Enemies ride on top of them:



And they'll whip you with their tail!



The Raptor & RAPTOR INSANITY Challenges!

We added two new challenges featuring the flame raptors:

- Raptor Challenge - Ten fun levels with brand new raptor-appropriate layouts!
- Raptor Insanity - A VERY HARD challenge. We decided to try splitting this challenge into an easy and hard version, since we know not everyone enjoys getting slaughtered repeatedly. ;)



You'll also find raptor levels in higher tiers of endless mode, and you can even spawn them with riders on Twitch streams!





"Repair"

Lose your arm, and can't use your bow? Tired of hopping around on one leg?



Well, would you look at that!



Weird -- wonder why there are scare quotes around "Repair"...

Other small improvements!

We also made a handful of smaller improvements we thought our wonderful fellow players would enjoy!

  • Workshop levels can now use enemy deaths as triggers! (I think we may be getting close to Turing-completeness...)
  • We fixed a bug with moving platforms resetting after death in workshop levels!
  • You can no longer escape your damaged robot body by exiting and re-starting the game -- player voxel damage now persists!
  • Hammer blows to enemies faces are now consistently lethal!

And as always, we're excited to subscribe to & play the awesome things you make next in the workshop!

Have fun with the raptors, and watch for our next post about what's next!

Coming June 22 - Flame Raptors!



The Flame Raptor is coming!

On June 22 the next big enemy enters the Danger Arena...
Prepare to be set aflame by the terrifying Flame Raptor!

A worthy opponent on its own, there are reports of Robots Riding Raptors.





The update will feature an awesome new Challenge, as well as introduce raptors to Endless, Twitch and Workshop levels!

Story Mode is brewing...
While we're working on getting dinosaurs to set you on fire, we have also begun concept art for the next Story Mode chapter.

Chapter 3 has been fleshed out on paper, and we'll start to implement it as soon as the raptor update is live! :D

About This Game

CONGRATULATIONS HUMAN! 🤖




Apologies for the brief agony while we harvested your mind. But now your thought patterns are safely encased in this sleek, shiny robot!

With a laser sword.

SURVIVE AND PERHAPS YOU WILL EARN UPGRADES.


GOOD LUCK IN THE ARENA.


We hope you survive longer than the last contestant...



Oh, and the one before that...

Game Modes


1. Story Mode - One part epic tale of human defiance, another part laser swords.
2. Endless Mode - Challenge yourself to fight through 86 level variants spread across 5 difficulty tiers. Can you make it to 🏆TITANIUM🏆 ?
3. Twitch Mode - TWITCH PLAYS YOU. Your Twitch stream viewers earn coins, bet on your gameplay and spawn enemies to kill you (or give you ❤️s—if they really like you).
!spawn jetpack2 Kappa Kappa Kappa
4. Challenge Mode - Bow-only, hammer-only, can you still survive the arena?
5. Level Editor - Make custom levels and challenges and share them with other humans! Explore the rich Workshop library of awesome human-built levels!

Features (in the game right now!)

  • Epic Voxel Dismemberment: In addition to looking cool, the ability to cut off body parts is central to the gameplay. Jumping on one leg is a common occurrence. Large enemies need to be cut down to size before a fatal blow can be delivered.
  • Sharp Sword Combat: Combat is fast and intense, putting great emphasis on movement, timing and positioning. You are never safe, as any blow can instantly kill or dismember.
  • Entertaining Commentary: With 7,421 spoken words, Commentatron and Analysis-Bot provide a running commentary of your performance and react to your activities.
  • Upgrade your robot: jetpack, bow, kicking, deflection, clones, giant hammers, FIRE 🔥🔥🔥.
  • Terrifying robotic enemies that actually get pretty hard! Sword robots, bow robots, Spidertron 5000, Spidertron 6000, gigantic hammer bots. So many things to dismember.

Alpha Limitations:


See Early Access description above.

Hone your sword skills now, before the rest of humanity gets its turn. JOIN THE HUMAN RESISTANCE!

Or don't! It's your future-robo-funeral... 😈
