Robots In The Wild, an imaginative take on Tetris-like puzzle-solving and base-building, has launched on Steam Early Access, bringing with it a host of new features since the game first went through Steam Greenlight. You can check out the new trailer for the game below.
Developed by one-man studio Heatbox Games, Robots In The Wild has players build an impenetrable “robot fortress” to survive raids from fierce monsters (who come out only at night) and endure against deadly natural disasters. Describing the game, Heatbox Games said:
“Not long ago, Robots lived in peace on a massive mothership … until one day, they were hit by a gigantic asteroid scattering their Blocks (and more importantly, their <HEARTS>) across the galaxy. Since these are the most precious Robots of them all, it’s important that you keep them safe!”
Players can build their Robo-fortress by rotating and strategically placing falling Blocks. Connect Blocks in different formations to build Robots, such as:
- PewPewBot, which shoots lasers out of its mouth
- LampBot, who lights up the darkest nights
- DwellingBot, an essential Bot that produces four BatteryBots that deliver sweet power to your other Robots
Aaron “Heatbox” Heaton, the CEO of Heatbox Games, spoke about the game being released on Steam Early Access, saying:
“Robots In the Wild is a game about building sweet Robot Citadels and running them efficiently. Crash landing on an alien world would be hard enough, but these ‘bots have to face hungry monsters … and enough natural disasters to fry any mainframe.”
The game is set to have a number of features upon release, including:
- Drop Blocks to build Robots and pathways, forming an interconnected fortress.
- Build fun combinations of Robots to automate simple tasks.
- Overcome the forces of nature from quicksand to volcanoes.
- Use your Robots to outmaneuver and outmuscle a wide variety of intergalactic Monsters.
Robots In The Wild is now available on Steam Early Access for $9.99. The game is compatible with Windows and Mac.
