What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access is a great opportunity to gather player opinion and ideas while developing the game. This will allow us to efficiently put our ideas in a broader standpoint and resolve any possible loopholes or flaws in the game design as the game is being developed. Not only, you as the player might be able to envision improvements to the game that we would never think of and that would make the game even better. With Early Access, we have a way of getting that feedback directly from you!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will be in Early Access for at least 6 months. This is to ensure that the full version is in the best possible state, and that we obtain and implement as much feedback as possible.”

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

“For the full version, we plan to have a smoother and more refined gameplay where possible flaws are fixed. A more refined game feel should exist on the full version, thus more sound effects and more beautiful effects will be added.

We also plan to improve the levels and create new ones. As such, we expect to add more challenges, enemies, and traps that come along with the new levels.

Various game features such as partial controller support and key bindings are planned for the full build.

Finally, we will also consider all feedback given by the community during the Early Access stage, as a way of further improving the final state of the game.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The early access version of the game has a full feature in terms of mechanics and gameplay of a full version. It only has a partial amount of playable stages and only 2 of the 5 playable characters though it doesn’t hinder to show the potential of the game.

In further detail, the current state of the Bad Bots Rise - Early Access is as follows:
  • 2 playable characters (IT Guy and Sign Spinner)
  • Each character has their standard ability and special attack
  • 4 keystones implemented in the game
  • 10 easy levels (+10 hard levels)
  • Language Selection

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

“We plan to gradually increase the price of the game during and after the Early Access phase, according to the game's development.”

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

“The player base is very important to us. We want to get their opinions on what they like and dislike about the game especially on the Early Access version and maintain interaction with the community in a way that we can hear their thoughts to further establish the game. This will allow the game to flourish in a way that we, the developers, and the players envision.

We will be communicating with you through the Steam discussion forums, where BBR will have specific discussions for feedbacks, issues, funny moments and all sorts! We will also use the News section to provide any significant progress changes to the project, as to keep you updated of what's going on with BBR.

We even have a discord channel for BBR where you can talk with the devs! We are usually on the discord channel from Monday to Friday, so hit us up if you feel like providing feedback!”

Bad Bots Rise v1.2

Game changes

The 1.2 update is here! The update includes significant gameplay changes along with some new levels and the game's first boss, Baxor.

Bad Bots Rise v1.2.0 - Screenshots and GIFs

Gameplay changes:

This gameplay change includes the removal of stage select.

This update aims to make the gameplay simpler by removing the stage select. Unnecessary button clicks will be removed. Thus, the player can enjoy a smoother transition between levels. This will make the player traverse the game in a one-way fashion and remove replayability of the levels. Therefore, an arcade mode will be added in the future updates to compensate with the removal of the replayability of levels.

The character select during player death was also removed and instead, the player will now have Health Points instead of lives. Changing characters is now different. Characters in cages will be found in levels. The player can swap characters by freeing captured characters on cages. This will also replenish their health points too to help them fight their way out of the level.

New Levels:
5 new challenging levels are added to the game. These new levels, 11 to 15, are much harder and larger than the previous 10 levels.

New Boss:
The first boss, Baxor, is added to the game. Baxor is a flying cube, with a deadly spinning gun that spins and targets the next gun to the player. Boxar creates spike drones, that targets the player with deadly spinning spikes.
