Insane Robots

Entrant 2016



In a perfect world where everybot knows their place, there is a place for disorder: It is in the arenas, where malfunctioning robots are forced to fight to the death, their battles beamed around the globe for entertainment. Eight robot freedom fighters infiltrate this cruel deathmatch. Their memories have been wiped so they cannot know their identities or why deep within their code they each carry the components of a powerful virus.

Insane Robots is a quirky, turn-based, "rogue-lite" 2D strategy game where malfunctioning robots battle for survival in Hunger Games-style, random-generated arenas. Each adventure brings tales of loyalty and betrayal; cold logic and insane risk. Traverse the hazardous arenas to discover branching, reactive stories; over 80 strange and rare upgrades; special boosts that bring twists to battles; dynamic hazards like acid clouds, electric storms or the ring of death; and deadly enemy robots ready to fight you and each other.

Only a cunning robot can master the battle systems, survive the tournaments and unlock enough memory fragments to discover the terrible truth at the heart of Insane Robots.
