Placebo Effect Beta Playtest!



Welcome to the Placebo Effect Beta Playtest!

Hello Shotbot Pilots,

With much anticipation, we’re pleased to announce that the Beta playtest for Placebo Effect is now in progress!

Placebo Effect is a Star Fox inspired third person "space-type" shooter. The gameplay is heavily inspired by classic video games of the past such as fast-paced flying action like Star Fox, puzzle solving like Super Mario 64, item gathering and adventure elements like The Legend of Zelda and King's Quest, but all used in a new way.

The full game will feature the entire Red Stage made of four unique Phases that must be explored to defeat pathogenic and biohazardous invaders. Your journey will include parts of the body like the intestines, and kidneys while you battle enemies such as Scorpio, Turbo Ticks, The Sporanator, and an army of Bugbots!

The Beta
is Phase 1 of the Red Stage and does not include all of the props, puzzles and characters in the entire Stage. If this Stage is well received, then we plan to make more. We will be emailing out the new keys in the next few days and we look forward to hearing about what you like, dislike and want to see. The response has been overwhelming! We appreciate your enthusiasm!

We have 500 keys but thousands of sign-ups so not everyone will get a key now but add Placebo Effect to your Wishlist and sign up on our website for more news about the Game and Trading Cards!

Here are just a few things to look forward to:
  • Defeat Boss Enemies and Kill Pathogens To maintain Energy Supply
  • Collect Nutrient Power-ups to Maintain Nutrient Shields
  • Master Great Mechanics by Performing Special Moves While Solving Puzzles
Have fun! We look forward to hearing your feedback!

About This Game

Placebo Effect is a fast-paced shooter video game set in a stunning 3D world of hostile inner-space. As you pilot an advanced nanotechnology battleship called the Shotbot deep into the darkest recesses of inner-space, you will master your ship's mechanics such as flying, shooting, performing barrel rolls and other special moves! As you travel you will find weapons, Immunition, and nutrient power-ups to help you defeat biohazardous invaders that threaten your energy supply. You will contend with locked valves that block your path, as well as other biological dangers but as you explore you will discover medicinal elixirs and turbo jetpacks that will help you on your journey...if you can make it.

Mission Briefing


You are a military scientist whose body is mutating after being infected by microorganisms that somehow escaped an enemy bio-warfare lab. Now, your life depends on defeating these pathogens by piloting a nanotechnology battleship called the Shotbot.

You have just gone deep underground into a classified research lab. Here, you enter a zero-gravity isolation chamber to visualize defeating disease through an interactive neuro-link to the Shotbot. During your battle, it is crucial to maintain your energy supply and restock weaponry by killing pathogens and collecting nutrients. Be vigilant, even in your darkest battle, because some of the enemies you defeat will leave behind powerful weapons.

Combine ancient wisdom and modern technology to mobilize the untapped healing resources of your mind.

Heal Thyself.
