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 2018, 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!

Battle Royale is coming!



Will YOU be the last human standing?
We're excited to announce that the next major multiplayer game mode will be... Battle Royale!

Wait... like... another Battle Royale??

If you're expecting 100 players to drop from a sky thing and then sneak around a large island with human houses... that is not what we're doing. :)

Clone Drone's take on the popular game mode instead builds on our learnings from Long Live Santa!, the merry Christmas game we prototyped last December.

We're placing a strong emphasis on fierce action, tactical trade-offs and contested upgrade drops.

Contested Power Upgrades!

Powerful upgrades become available after the match starts.
To get them you must be the only living player inside of their capture zone for five full seconds!

These drops help drive players together, providing an interesting trade-off between risk and reward. You can avoid the fight entirely with just your starting upgrades, but as more competitors are eliminated, you'll really wish you snagged some power upgrades!

Power Upgrade: Flame Raptor!



Have you always wanted to ride a fearsome fire breathing robot raptor? Of course you have.
Ridable Raptors is the first Power Upgrade in Battle Royale!

We're also thinking about the best way to introduce ridable raptors in singleplayer, but have yet to decide the exact shape that will take.

Power Upgrade: Mega Size!



Tower over your enemies and strike them down with your superior reach!
It's fun to be a big bot.

Power Upgrade: Energy Laser!



Overpowered? I don't know what you're talking about.

Follow our progress!

Since multiplayer is way more fun to develop alongside real, live humans, you'll often find us developing it LIVE on Twitch -- and we've set up a beta branch where you can play along with every change we make. It's already getting quite fun -- come play and help us make it even more awesome!


See you in the arena, or for our next update post!

0.12.2 – Bug fixes!



We just fixed a bunch of bugs:
  • Fleet overseer moves crazily when legs cut off!
  • Fleet overseer hovers high above ground!
  • Kick only Challenge Level 1: enemy instantly activates and dies on spikes???
  • Kicking a hammer should not work
  • Commentator dialogue is incorrect in Duel Invites
  • Armor can be applied to missing limbs
  • Ally in chapter 3 runs away from armor bot
We're hard at work on the next big update, but these issues were bad enough to warrant a little hotfix.

Happy Wednesday!

Oh, and the one before that...

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!
