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!

📅 Chapter 3 Arrives September 29th! 🛡 Armor Preview! 🎫 #TwitchCon Giveaway!



Ahoy!! As Erik mentioned in our last update, we've been super-duper-heads-down-focused on finishing up Story Mode Chapter 3 -- our most ambitious update yet -- a multi-stage adventure chock full of fresh new gameplay elements!

And we've set a final date for release! The Story Mode Chapter 3 update will be available on Steam and Itch on...

Until then, we thought you might appreciate a sneak peek at:

Armor!!

Armor, which will be introduced in chapter 3, covers sections of your body -- stopping blade cuts and breaking apart on impact.



Yes, YOU get to wear it, too!



"But wait...", you might ask. "Can ALL the enemies wear armor?"



...

Chapter 3 Teaser!

Did you know that we are hard at work on the next installment of Story Mode??
Chapter 3 is slowly taking shape, and we finally have a few images to show you!

We're aiming to launch the update in mid-September! Update: launching September 29th -- it will be worth the wait!!

Here is a minor SPOOOOOOOOOILER ALERT!

Click away if you don't want to know what happens in Chapter 3.

Here we go:



Some highlights:
  • No Arena! - For the first time in the short history of the game, the action takes place outside of the arena.
  • AI Companion - Fighting alongside you will be the other escaped human! You'll be able to equip both humans with different upgrades and switch back and forth between them.
  • City overhaul! - Let's face it. That city at the end of chapter 1 and 2 looked kinda placeholdery. We've been hard at work concepting something that will look much better.
  • Armor - The new combat mechanic of the update is: ARMOR! Any enemy in the game will be able to wear armor, preventing damage before shattering. In keeping with the detailed damage model of the game, armor only protects specific body parts.
  • Business Bots - In Chapter 3 your minds will inhabit the slender frames of Business Bots. Watch their robot ties wave in the wind!
  • Glowing Eyes - Every robot in the game is getting glowing eyes that fade out dramatically when they die.
We're aiming to launch the update in mid-September.

It's taking a bit longer than many of our smaller updates have, in part because we want to create something super cool, but also because Erik (that's me) has a new side project:


(from: https://www.twitch.tv/doborog)

We're having a lot of fun building this update. :)

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... 😈
