The IOTA Project Patch Notes [and Farewell]

Hello, all!

We've recently updated The IOTA Project according to the feedback we've received over the past few months, as well as revamping our art assets and redesigning much of the city.

Here are the changes we've made!

ROOMSCALE ROTATION: now one of the locomotion options allows you to control your rotation with your head/body. This was the #1 piece of feedback we received - we've made it happen.

ART POLISH: R4N-D and the Drones have been made brighter, IOTA's arms have been made more rugged/worn, the roads and sand were redesigned. Overall the city has much more polish and detail.

CITY REDESIGN: The entire city has been redesigned and condensed to include much more detail.

REVAMPED TUTORIAL AREA: The tutorial starting area has been redesigned based on feedback we got from taking the game to conventions and events.

SPAWN RATES: Enemy Spawn Rate is increased, along with the more condensed city layout it should be difficult to avoid enemies.

WEAPONS: Rocket Launcher rate of fire is increased, power is decreased.

ABILITIES: Rocket Barrage ability now homes in on enemy foes.

AUDIO: Music adapts to enemy threat level and we've updated sound effects and audio implementation.

ITEMS: Health pick-ups now respawn around the city.

BUILDINGS: Buildings now take more damage before they're destroyed.


Unfortunately, this will be our final update on The IOTA Project. It will remain free, but there will be no further developments so consider this it's final form.

Thank you all for the support you've shown us along the way. Seeing people jazzed for what we were building gave us so much inspiration. Creating a virtual reality giant robot game that fulfills our childhood dream of piloting a mech has been, well, a dream. We watched every YouTube video made of someone playing The IOTA Project, and read every review. Seeing people react so positively to what we were creating was a feeling none of us will forget! So, again, thank you for your support.

Obviously there are aspects we wish we could develop further, and bugs we wish we could fix, but we're proud of where we are leaving off. We hope you enjoy rampaging around as the pilot of a giant mech. Don't cause too much havoc! (Who am I kidding, cause all the havoc you want ;) )

About This Game

Bitsburgh has been evacuated. R4N-D mechs and drones have swarmed the streets. It's up to you, as the pilot of the mysterious mech IOTA, to take down the enemy threat and bring peace back to the city. If, of course, you don't destroy it in the process.

Arm yourself with an array of powerful weapons scattered throughout the city, as well as your own two giant robot fists and some chaos-causin' rocket launchers - and destroy all enemies!

This is a free, pre-alpha demo- please be aware that there will be bugs and issues, as well as aspects of the game that feel unfinished. We're continuing to develop a complete version, taking into account player feedback. We hope you enjoy this slice of what we have to offer and follow along our development journey!


  • Free Locomotion: Use the analog sticks to move and rotate. Explore the whole city with no teleportation! We worked hard on making a cockpit system that helps to alleviate nausea. Current comfort options include 3 varieties of rotation you can switch between from the settings. Additional comfort settings will be added as we continue development.

  • Multiple Play-styles: Like combat up close and personal? Prefer targeting your foes from a distance? Switch between melee weapons and rocket launchers at will. The mech arms have a slight delay compared to your pilot arms, which helps to convey the weightiness and power of your punches.

  • Free-Roam Experience: Explore and destroy the city in a sandbox environment. Those enemy mechs aren't the only ones who get to have fun causing a little chaos.

  • Power Abilities: You have three special weapons you can unleash by punching buttons in your mech - Core Blast, which unleashes a volley of rockets; Electro Blast, which sends out a shockwave to stun enemies and send objects flying; and the Laser, a deadly beam of high-powered energy.

  • Grabbable Props: Pick up cars, buses, stoplights, and more. Nothing says "don't mess with me" like a mech wielding dual palm trees.
