Boom! The next update arrives on Feb 3.

Steam Greenlight is coming!

It's time for the game to land on the Steam platform!

  • Step 1 is the Greenlight campaign launching with this update on Feb 3!
  • Step 2 will launch the game on Steam with a massive update, scheduled for mid-March.

Being on itch.io is a wonderful experience, and we'll continue to release updates there.
If you've bought the game there you'll be able to retrieve a Steam key when the time comes!

Smash things with your hammer!

Introducing the game's third weapon: The Hammer!

hammersmash2

The hammer offers a powerful alternative to the energy sword.
It can't be blocked and instantly shatters whatever it hits!

The increased power comes at a price however.
It is slower to swing and can't block any incoming strikes, including arrows.

A dangerous weapon for dangerous robots.

Speaking of Dangerous Robots, expect to see these bad boys running around the arena.
Almighty Nubs joins us this update as a guest artist, making some really awesome looking enemies.

Story Mode continues!

6forcefield

After a long wait, Chapter 2 of Story Mode arrives.
Will the second human escape the arena? We will find out!

(+1)

O.O

(+1)

:D!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(+1)

one question, when will another ranged weapon be added to the game? xD

p.s. not to be taken seriously

(+1)

We'll see! :)

(+1)

Maybe a gun, like an Ion Assault Rifle from my post?

(Edited 1 time) (+1)

so, when will we get a blog on this "massive march update"? xD

warning: not to be taken seriously

(+1)

this update isn't released for almost a month, and now I already really want to know what will be added in the march update that you mentioned x3

(+1)

This looks awesome! I cant wait to play!

Any hints on what the new enemy robots will be wielding...? :}

(+2)

A HAMMER!!!!

(+1)

xD thought so... if the hammer is unblockable, doesn't that make it really op when combined with the jetpack?

What happens when two hammers colide

(+1)

O.O

(Edited 1 time) (+1)

on an unrelated note, Doborog, you will probably have to make another topic like "how to update the game", but this time on on how to retrieve steam key xD

(+1)

Good edge case! Right now I don't handle it since it's rare, but they should ideally cancel each other.

(+1)

A supernova is created, instantly destroying the whole arena, and poor Commentatron and Analysis-Bot, and Upgrade Bot, and CrowdBot 1, CrowdBot 2, CrowdBot 3, CrowdBot 4...



PS Not to be taken seriously

(+1)

Yes, it's very effective with the jetpack! Might need to nerf it. :)

(+1)

May the Emperor bless us, that a Jetpack Hammer Robot isn't created.


PS Plz

PPS Purdy plz

PPPS This is your coment, cogito, I find it funny

PPPPS Don't nerf the hammer

(+1)

(Analysis-Bot) the Emperor blessing humans? hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! silly human.

(+1)

(Commentatron) Erik! Create a JetHammer Bot right now, or you'll receive the Hopper treatment!

(+1)

(Analysis-Bot) I am unfamiliar with the "Hopper" treatment. please elaborate Commentatron

(+1)

(Commentatron) It's simple, Analysis-Bot, we lock the human in a room, and put a Hopper inside that room, then, the Hopper tries to bite the human's face off, and the human does whatever we want!

(Analysis-bot) Well yeah but what is this "Hopper"

(+2)

(Commentatron) Go to a topic called "Just some ideas :)" It'll be somwhere there

(+1)

Will the March update be the final update to the game, or will development continue after it?

(+1)

considering some of the posts Doborog has made, I don't think that March will be the final update, of course, don't take my word for it. :3

p.s. Doborog, if you're reading this, then PLZ LET ME BE RIGHT!!!!!!!!!

(Edited 1 time) (+3)

There will be many updates after it! :D

(+1)

:D

(+4)

HAMMER GIFS!!!!!




(+1)

O.O first thought: they. are. huge.

second thought: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(+1)

WILL THE HAMMER BOTS BE IN STORY MODE? :3

(+1)

sorry for the caps :(

(Edited 2 times) (+1)

wait, correct me if i'm wrong, but doesn't the hammer from the farther robot pass directly through the other one?

(+1)

seriously... why does that happen?

(+1)

no, it missed! :P That usually doesn't happen.

(+1)

oh haha :)

(+1)

noice!

(+1)

Holy shit thats awesomee

(Edited 2 times) (+1)

Hey Doborg, first of all... that all looks amazing, you've done a great job!!

Secondly, I see in the gifs it seems incredibly difficult, if not impossible to be able to kill the hammer robots with a melee weapon... of course you can just risk it and quickly advance and take a swing, but a lot of the time even if you do hit them, it wont kill them. (unless your lucky with a hand or headshot).

I know we can use the spikes and saws around the map to kill them, and obviously using a bow would be very effective in this case... but is there any way to "RELATIVELY" safely kill these guy with your sword, or even a hammer? I know with the normal sword robots you can trick them to strike and then quickly attack with a horizontal strike and hopefully slice them in half... is it possible to do with these hammer enemies?

It would be awesome if we had some kind of duck upgrade, where we would just barely duck under the swinging hammer.

Apart from that, this update looks great and I cant wait to play it! The count down begins!!!

(+1)

No need to worry Bob, as far as their AI goes, they pack together and hit eachother often. Their hammer's are destructive and can hit any bot, so dont worry

(+1)

True, but I fear you'll get too close to them to try and make them attack and then they'll hit you (and possibly the other enemies) with their hammer, as they have a longer reach.

(+1)

oh yeah! I'm dumb, so I've just realized that the hammer blots make the bow much more desireable!

(+1)

I will for sure adjust the difficulty so they're not impossible to beat.

The Mark 1 and 2 are a lot easier, so we'll see where it makes sense to use the mark 3 and exactly how difficult it should be.

(+2)

*creates level with 5 spidertrons-7000, 10 mk2 jetpack bots, 20 mk3 swords, 30 mk3 archers, 40 mk2 jetpackarchers (idk how,seeing as they are exclusive to twitch mode) 50 mk3 hamer bots, and finally, 100 mk3 jethammer bots*

(Analysis-Bot #6) now we watch the human die

o.o

(+1)

This, is my nightmare.

(+3)

Honestly, I did'nt expect the hammer to look that cool and detailed, especially considering the simplistic design of the sword and bow, but we have nearly two weeks to go! I've also been eager for an expansion in the story, can't wait to see what happens next!

(+1)

Thanks. :)

(+1)
