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 2019, 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 three 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.

Challenges, Multiplayer Duels, Level Editor + Workshop support: & more game modes to come!

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!

0.13.1 - New laser challenge, private Last Bot Standing matches and workshop maps!



We just released a cheeky update!

Introducing...
The Laser Challenge!
Surprise! We were fixing a laser bug this update, so we figured, why not make a challenge that uses it! Practice your laser skills with 10 fresh laser-forward levels.



Will you earn the new laser challenge trophy?



Last Bot Standing Workshop levels!

Some of you were asking if you could make and play your own Last Bot Standing multiplayer levels. Now you can!!

With a single click, your work in progress level is on a dedicated multiplayer server and ready to play-test. We now wish this was in every game's level editor!



Once you're happy with your level, upload it to the Steam Workshop. People can then use your levels in...

Private Last Bot Standing matches!

Create your own private Last Bot Standing matches with up to 15 of your closest friends. Download some new levels from the workshop and try them out!



Don't have any friends to try out new level with? Join our...

Live Community-Created Level Play Tests!

You may notice a new countdown at the top of the game.



We're going to get everyone together and test out some of the latest Steam Workshop levels on a Twitch stream together. The first one will be at Saturday November 17th at 10am PST. Load up your game then to try the community-created levels we're testing!

Win Counting - Unlock sweet transport bots!

What's better than ultimately futile human combat? Memorable ultimately futile human combat!

Now when you win a public match with more than 5 players in it, your new Win Counter will go up. Once you reach a certain number of wins, your Transport Bot will automatically be upgraded to a new, more intimidating model.



You may notice this includes a macho mustache garbage bot. Are you happy, cogitoergosum?! Look what you've made us do.

A New Level!

As part of testing the new ability to play-test Last Bot Standing workshop levels, we've added a new map to the public Last Bot Standing rotation called Rising Tide.



As lava rises up, the level's combat surface grows progressively smaller. Kill your opponents before you drown in lava!

Other Cool Stuff!

  • We added a Setting to select an override region for matchmaking. Hope this helps those of you who were having trouble pinging regions, or couldn't find enough matches in your own region. Let us know!
  • We added a news widget so you can see what our latest updates have been (like... this one!!) You may also notice some cute little buttons right below there, including one to some Clone Drone merch from Design By Humans. Fresh.

Coming up next!

There's so much we want to do next, we're going to parallelize the next bit of development!

  • Erik will begin work on Chapter FOURRRRRRRR! No firm release date for it yet, but we will share info once we start in on it! We're make sure to share some teasers along the way. We've got some fun plans for it!!
  • Brian will continue upgrading our multiplayer server and matchmaking system to support a US-West region!

Don't forget to come join our play test on Saturday November 17th at 10am PST! Add it to your calendar, and see you next update!

Now what?!?!



What a fun week! We’re finding Last Bot Standing is so much fun with full 15-player matches! If you haven’t seen it yet, update your game & come play, or check out this fun video from Draegast!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9DJiEbxxCg

Thanks everyone who shared ideas & concerns with us this week, it really helped us prioritize! We did a bit of planning after this release about what we’ll be working on next, we hope you will like it!

Here’s what we’re planning:
  • Address the most pressing issues with Last Bot Standing!
  • Make Sure Last Bot Standing stays fresh while we add…...
  • Chapter 444444444444444444!!!!!!!!!!

Address the most pressing issues with Last Bot Standing

Start taking direct Submissions of Last Bot Standing levels, trying some of them out on live streams! More details on how that will work, soon. :)

Add US-West Support! To do that, we’ll be switching up how we manage our dedicated servers. That will ALSO give us the opportunity to re-evaluate what regions we have. The goal will be to minimize player pings without splitting people into games that are too small!

Laser Improvements! Currently the laser sometimes damages things that are below the beam -- we didn’t have time to fix that for release, but we’re gonna fix it now!



Make Sure Last Bot Standing stays fresh

Your Wins will Matter! We will start keeping track of wins, and display them in cool ways in the game :)

More Variety! Aside from including some Workshop-created levels (see above), we’ll be doing some fun stuff that makes the game even more different to play at times.

& then… Chapter 4444444444444444444444!!

Obviously no spoilers but, it’s gonna be coooooool! More details closer to starting it :)

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... 😈
