Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

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!

WOW! In the two short weeks since we launched the Level Editor and Steam Workshop integration, FELLOW CREATIVE HUMANS created over 1,000 challenges and 1,000 endless levels!! Many even took the new enemy wait and move platform trigger elements from last Friday and made mind-blowing contraptions.

In the Clone Drone Steam Workshop, you’ll now find beautiful creations:


The Dark Knight by FrafMonster


Mini-Bow Challenge by SiggiSuffkopp (even has a YOUTUBE TRAILER!!)


Level Pack 1 by Random Commander

Unique gameplay challenges:

Wanna play some awesome new challenges and endless levels?
And when you try levels, don’t forget to:
  • Rate and comment on the challenges in the workshop! Let your fellow humans know what you liked about what they made!
  • Use Photo Mode to take beautiful screenshots! (capture and upload your screenshot by hitting F12 in Steam). You can then upload the screenshots and send the links to the creator! It’s so fun to see people playing your creations!!
Made or found a level or challenge you’re really excited about?
Share it here! I’d love to take a look!

What’s next?!
We’ll continue to improve the level editor going forward, including making some improvements in our next small update (especially since we’re using it to make levels too, now!).

And we have some some pretttttt-ty exciting non-level-editor things in the works, so stay tuned!

0.8.1 - They Wait



It has been a week since the Level Editor was released!
The workshop now has 1500 items in it. Wow!

Update time!
Today we're releasing a small update reacting to feedback from all the wonderful people making levels!

It fixes a ton of bugs and introduces some fun new features.

Trigger Zones!
Now you can make enemies not blindly rush at you as soon as you exit the elevator.
Make them wait until you reach them before activating.



Moving Platforms - Very Configurable!
You want to do cool stuff with Moving Platforms? Now you can!
By combining moving platforms with  trigger zones you can make all kinds of wonderful things.
Elevators, traps, doors, sinking pillars, self-assembling levels, hyper-mazes! You tell us.



If the number of settings seem overwhelming it's because SO IS YOUR POWER!!!!
The default settings just move it back and forth, just like before!

New Challenge: They Wait
To showcase what is possible with the new update we made a neat 5-level challenge, released via workshop!
The death robots are waiting for you, human!



Dialogue Randomizer
Need inspiration for what level to make? Press the little random button!



Tags, tags, tags!
Levels uploaded from this update will be tagged with their commentator description.
Now it is easy to find all levels with cats!



Other changes!
  • Primitives folder renamed to Basics
  • Ramp added to Basics folder! Magically looks good when you scale it.
  • Tool keyboard shortcuts changed: d,m,r,s ---> 1,2,3,4
  • Return to Level Editor - No need to go via main menu after play testing!
  • Bug fixes - We fixed a ton of bugs! Yay!

Now what?
We're going to make one more update in the next couple of weeks to get even more awesome features into the Level Editor!

Let us know if you have ideas for improving the Level Editor in the forums or jump into one of Erik's twitch streams to see the next update being created live before your eyes!

Also: CHECK OUT ALL THE WORKSHOP LEVELS!!! :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... 😈
