What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Given our small team, all working on this part-time while having other full-time occupation, we simply don't have the resources to properly QA everything to an adequate degree. We're hoping to gather as much feedback as possible from the community, as we're well aware that some parts of the game may not have been designed in the most user friendly way possible.

Along with receiving advice on possible gameplay tweaks, we'd love to know which type of levels the community finds more or less enjoyable so we can focus our future efforts into either creating more of the better ones or adjusting the less popular ones.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We're hoping to have everything wrapped up in 6 months, though this is not something we can guarantee due to other possible obligations.”

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

“First and foremost, we're looking to add as many levels as possible. While we're starting at around 30 levels, that number should at the very least be doubled by the time the game is out of Early Access.

Alongside the new levels, we're planning to add a local multiplayer mode in which players can face off against one another and, if all goes according to plan, an online multiplayer option.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game currently has 45 levels, ranging from beginner to very advanced, and a level editor which allows users to create their own custom levels to play. Additionally, there is an option to upload your levels or download other users'.”

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

“There are no plans for increasing the game price.”

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

“We have created a community Discord server where everyone can pitch in with their comments, as well as a company Twitter and Facebook profile and a publicly available e-mail address where people can contact us with their feedback.

While not currently implemented, we're hoping to have an option to rate each level in the game in order to get even more precise feedback.”

About This Game

This seems rather easy, doesn't it? You just move up a few tiles, turn right, shoot, turn left, move up a bit more and you're done. Well yes, the solution is fairly obvious from where we're standing, but put yourself in the body of that little robot and try to see the world from his perspective. Each turn is a new set of parameters for him to process and his view of the world is very limited. You might see the target behind that wall over there, but all he sees is the wall.

Fortunately, now you can use your superior knowledge to help the little guy find his way. Create a complex decision tree which will help him overcome any obstacle in his way.With an ever growing number of levels, your programming skills will be put to the test in more and more complicated ways.

If you fail at first, there's a detailed overview of what decisions he's made and you can easily pinpoint where it all went wrong. After all, what is programming other than iterating through solutions, getting closer and closer with each step, until that wonderful moment at the end when you clench your fist with pride after a successful run and take your well earned walk around the room to show everyone just how clever you really are. This is how Sketchbots will help you feel with each completed level, all while enjoying its beautiful, school-notebook-inspired, art design.
