Rawbots on Kickstarter
New Video and pre-alpha
Description
Robot crafting sandbox. Build ‘em! Battle ‘em!
Rawbots.net

A universe where you can play with amazing robots that are designed, built and even programmed by you.

Everything is a robot, doors, roads, walls, bridges, safes, traps, turrets, surveillance systems, etc. Build forts, towers and architect impressive structures to protect your planets and resources. You may play solo or with friends to infiltrate, conquer planets and gather resources.

Traditional keyboards and mouse can be used along with midi devices, gamepads, iOS and Android devices; the point is, any device may be used as a controller. Create your own input setups and master your designs, whether it is controlling a huge robot or entire armies of relentless minions.

The Rawbots universe has a unique set of matter, energy and physics laws. These laws are engineered to serve up fun emergent gameplay that is different every time you play. Everything you would expect from a sandbox game and more. We are taking this to the next level with gameplay that truly emerges beyond imagination and defined contextually by the type of robots you build. On one planet you might experience a first person shooting experience, go into a space battle in 3rd person, and down into an RTS offensive on another planet.

An intuitive and streamlined graph system will bestow the power of visual programming into the hands of creative minds. Under the hood, the latest in signal processing, inverse kinematics and PID controllers, will breathe life into your creations. From geeks, to tinkers, to grinders, there is a creation path for everyone.

And while you are building and tinkering around, we will also be busy developing story campaigns, random missions, battle tournaments and creating new and impressive bot parts.

Reviews

The Indie Game Magazine - “We’ve all wanted to build our own robot fighting machine at some point in our life; usually a lack of university level robotics education tends to get in the way. Well you can kiss that lame excuse goodbye when you get your hands on the robot building sandbox game, Rawbots.”

N4G - “This might be the coolest robot-fighting sandbox game I’ve ever seen... If Real Steel had a game that allowed you to build a robot that could take on any awesome form, it would be this game.”

EVGA Gaming - “Robot crafting? Whaaaa?! Sandbox? Get out! Build ‘em! Battle ‘em! We’re there! First, though, that crafting system looks like a doozy. Think that’s wild? Oh it gets nuttier than squirrel scat! You can even control your creations with an iPhone, iPad, gamepad or other remote media device. Sickness.”

Kotaku - “Drawing on inspiration from stuff like LEGO and Spore… So you can shoot stuff, yeah, but there's also more pedestrian pursuits you can cobble together as well.”

IndieGames.com - “Judging from the technical preview video that they just released, the creation process will be both simplistic yet detailed”

Rock, Paper, Shotgun - “The building system looks really interesting, and enormously complex. It’s certainly caught our eye.”

Press2Reset - “There are few children who haven’t at some point designed or imagined their dream robot, though it’s always been difficult to realize such a dream. However, developer Rogzo‘s upcoming Rawbots might be able to do just that.”

WHY DID IT HAVE TO DIE T_T

Welp, I can confirm that the game is dead. I just visited rawbots.net for the first time in forever, and the webpage does not exist anymore. So sad. It was such a promising game. Fun even in it's basic iterations.

Господа, не знаю как Вы, но я убежден, что им легче было присоединиться к тем разработчикам, чем делать то же самое.

I don't know if this is dead, or alive or in limbo anymore.

or alive, I wish there were more games that include programming and had this much potential.
