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?

“In its current state, the concept and mechanics are definitely far enough along to give the community a good idea about what we want to do with this Robothorium. However it’s still early enough for us to catch any mistakes that we might have made, or to take on board new concepts and propositions. This is why we think now is the right time to be part of Early Access.

In this way the community can be involved the sooner. The game has an original concept mixing RPG and Rogue-like, however it implies a lot of balancing because of the procedural generation.

Fresh perspectives from what we hope will be a bunch of qualified and implicated players. That’s how we take a step back and improve our game, beyond what we could have done all alone in our studio.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We will need at least 8 months to implement everything that we already have planned. Taking into account community feedback and requested features, we could go up to 10 months.”

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

“Ultimately we would like to add 4 more playable classes of Robots, add new missions to get the story to its different endings as well as secondary missions, improve the online player vs player mode and add legendary items with unique effects.

The goal for pvp will be to develop your own defensive I.A, and attack the I.A of your friends or from players from all around the world with your team of robots. The versus matches will be asynchronous so you don’t have to wait too long before your opponent make his/her move.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“At day one of the Early Access we have:

90% of features implemented
6 / 10 robots playable
75% of items
90% of monsters
PvP
Possibility to create your level and community translation
50% of the branching story is integrated”

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

“We will probably increase the price during or after the early access based on the amount of content available and feedback from the community.”

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

“We're looking forward to working with the community on a number of fronts:

Balancing the game:
In a tactical RPG everyone has its own way of beating a game. We want that people get involved in their own revolution, that you get tons of possibility to achieve your goal and not with just one meta. So we’re counting on the community to help us a lot with this.

Suggestions and ideas:
We actively encourage members of the community to give us their ideas on how to improve the game with new content or design ideas. You can create posts directly on Steam or just join our Discord if you have any idea or suggestion. We love to hear about you and we are actively present on our Discord.

Bugs hunting:
We’ve done our best to provide you an experience as bug free as we can. However, there will inevitably be small bugs, crashes, or performance issues. Whether they're caused by thousands of players with thousands of different configurations, or just because… It happens…

Translation:
We will open community translation thanks to the Steam Workshop for our game.”

You’ve asked for it... you’ve waited for it... Here it is! The Workshop now has a button to recycle all Common and Rare items in one click!

Please take note that it might need some optimization on our side. It currently takes several seconds to recycle all.

  • The Deactivate Action on traps is now greyed out and disabled if the trap has been revealed beforehand.

Robothorium Devlog: What's new since the Early Access release?

Welcome aboard AIs,

It’s time for our 7th Open development issue about Robothorium. Our weekly rendez-vous where you can see what we are working on, future updates and pretty much everything we have in mind.

Subscribe here if you want to receive our news by mail

Summary of the Early Access:




Our goal for the Early Access of Robothorium is to constantly upgrade our game, to create the best dungeon crawler RPG for you(at least we hope ^^). This is why we are listening a lot to your feedbacks and then adapt the game after taking them in count. Moreover, we try to add new features every 1 or 2 weeks!!!

We’ve pushed a lot of new things in Robothorium this summer, so it’s time to do a little summary of what we’ve done so far.

The S.O.N.G. is joining the uprising



The S.O.N.G. is a really tanky robot and his whole gameplay is based on the Overload:
He can increase and decrease the Overload of his team mates or his enemies and has powerful supporting skills based on his Overload bar.

New mission for Sarah and first boss



You will now discover the story of Sarah and infiltrate the most secret laboratory of Breaktech in order to find the truth behind some mysterious missings.

New factions missions available



CyberRights and Biothorium second missions are now playable.

New environment available


You have now access to the Ghetto, The city by night.

Twitch votes



You can let your community choose and vote for special actions.

Hardcore difficulty



You can now choose the “Revolution” difficulty. This mode is more challenging, enemies are stronger and security is enhanced.
Oh, and one more thing. If your robots are destroyed, you lose them forever. You can’t bring them back to your base and repair them… THEY ARE DEAD!!!

A lot of bug fixes and balancing

Interview of Mathieu, the artistic director

Introduce yourself, what are you doing on Robothorium?

Ooh hi!! I’m Mathieu, 28 years old and I’m the artistic director on Robothorium.
I’m doing most of the visuals: sprites, animations, videos…

If you want to see more about my work, here is my Art Station

What softwares are you using?

I’m mostly using Photoshop for my illustrations and for the animations in game I’m using Anima2d from Unity. Since they have implemented this tool directly in Unity it’s a game changer for me. I’m saving so much time.

It’s a type of animation which is like puppets. You create meshes and bones on your character and you animate it by polarization.

By the way, the trailer and teaser have been made directly on Unity too, with Anima2D for the animation and Adobe Premiere for the cut.

What were your experiences before this project?

I am a self-taught artist, I worked on some mobile games and I did a lot of personal project that did not really succeed… but hey, that brought me a lot of experiences!!!

What are your favorite games?

I love RPG games, so of course The Witcher 3. But at the same time, I like to pew pew, so Rainbow Six Siege, Broforce, Day of infamy, Quake, Doom, etc.

Et voilà…

Kisses!

The Story :

2052. Planet Earth. BreakTech, an enterprise specialised in robotic construction, is flourishing thanks to thorium, an unlimited and innovative power source.

Now seen as a first degree threat, robots are hunted down and culled throughout the planet.
