Bot Colony
Bot Colony in-game trailer
August 16, 2013 - BotColony

We’re happy to bring you the Bot Colony in-game trailer. You’ll get an initial feel for the world, the story, how the game is played – and how being able to talk to the characters enriches gameplay.

• The trailer features in-game content from the first two episodes (there will be 12 episodes).
All robot speech is computed dynamically based on what you say or do, and goes through speech-to-text.
• You’ll see that a robot can store videos of significant events it witnessed. If you ask the right questions, you can zero in to any segment of the robot’s memory - and you’ll be able to see what the robot saw!
• If you think our trailer is worth sharing, please post the link to your friends. By doing so, you'll help get Bot Colony green lit.

Enjoy the trailer!

(The trailer is the #1 video in the games description.)

Sweeeet, looking really nice. I appreciate the work you've put into the textures and animations, and also the cut-scenes that integrate you more into the bot colony and it's inhabitants. Comparing this to the 2010 gameplay footage it seems that the voice recognition has been tweaked a little to make it more human-like and faster in response. It doesn't seem quite so stilted and is much more natural.

As Japanese culture fan, I'm loving the accents! Wouldn't mind some subtitled Japanese also. If it's partly a learning tool it'd be awesome to see a 'reverse' voice recognition where the player can try Japanese (maybe not everyone in the game understands English?) but that's probably outside your scope. Maybe in a sequel?

Finally, given the first mission (?) in the airport I feel this is required linkage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uySs5wIN4Qo
(I spared you the now-horrible text-to-speech versions, circa 2006)
