Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
The Trouble With Robots is a side-scrolling customisable card game. What does that mean? It means that the game is something like a cross between Magic: The Gathering and Plants vs Zombies. Actually it's unique and quite hard to describe, so on to the screenshots:
At the start of each wave allies (centaurs here) are on the left, robots are on the right, and you've got cards drawn from your deck at the bottom of the screen. The game is all about those cards, you have little 'direct' influence on the battlefield but believe me, using the right cards at the right times is critical! In this case the robots don't have very much health so they should be quite susceptible to that Fireball...
As you complete levels you will unlock more cards and get to upgrade your deck, experiment with new toys and find combos. Before you know it, you'll be playing crazy battles like this one:
What Are People Saying?
The Trouble With Robots is still somewhat under the radar, but we've had some great reviews from the indie games press. For instance:
Most of the development and programming was done by me, Geoffrey White, over the course of about two years. I also had help from excellent artist Ben Jones and talented musician Matt Javanshir, and I owe a lot of thanks to various friends who tested the game, offered suggestions and helped to get the word out.
Can I Play?
Of course you can! You can download the demo or get the full version from our site or Get Games. And as an added bonus if you comment below, I'll send one lucky person a free copy of the game!
