Impressions: Drunken Robot Pornography

By Alec Meer on February 20th, 2014.

Drunken Robot Pornography is an FPS/bullet hell mash-up in which you wear a jetpack and shoot a whole load of robots, while your own robo-suit makes a whole load of quips. It’s out now, and I played a bit of it earlier.

Was that giant mecha-octopus-thing wearing a top hat? Maybe I imagined it. Everything moves so fast, it’s gone (i.e. dead, or has deaded me) before I get a chance to look at it. It’s like a canal ride by speedboat. “Was that a duckling? Wait, did we just pass a castle? Is this Manchester already? Oh God, watch out for that…” [DEAD].

Only with a jetpack rather than a boat. And in the future rather than on a quiet waterway. And with huge, deadly, robots rather than ducks and Manchester. Er. Okay, look, Dejobaan’s Drunken Robot Pornography is a first-person bullethellish shmup that throws more at the screen than there’s possibly time to see, and tries extremely hard – too hard, perhaps – to be funny. Oh bollocks, I think I’ve just written my conclusion right at the start of this piece.

Shelley They Can’t Be Serious: Elegy For A Dead World

By Alec Meer on October 23rd, 2013.


That Dejobaan, always making intense games of sensory-overload and destabilising weirdness. The last thing they’d over do is make something calm and reflective. Something inspired by the Romantic poets, for instance. Perhaps something that’s about observing and note-taking. Something like Elegy For A Dead World.

Oh.

Top Shelf: Drunken Robot Pornography Alpha Keys

By Adam Smith on January 11th, 2013.

The fine folks at DejobAaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAAn wish to invite you to peruse their Drunken Robot Pornography. They’ll even let you play with it if you sign up for the alpha. The mailing list would only be used to send out a Steam key for DRP’s alpha, discount codes and other such offers. No news/spam will be sent, they assure me, but there are thousands of alpha keys waiting to wing their way to RPS readers right now. The game allows players to construct arenas and and titanic robots, which then wage war on Boston from above and can only be stopped by a chap or chapess with a jetpack and a gun. The catchy intro explains all.

Build Titans For Drunken Robot Pornography

By Craig Pearson on February 24th, 2012.

Space spiders are the worst of all the spiders
I’ll bet there’s a fair few of you who now think I have aphasia. I do not, although sometimes when I read back what I’ve written here I realise it would be a good excuse. Nope, Drunken Robot Pornography is merely an experimental game from those mother troublers at Dejobaan Games. Which would make Titans… let me check, ah yes: bosses for what appears to be a first-person shooter that I totally missed that they were making. It’s looking typically untypical: a strobing, orbital battle against giant destructible bosses, using weapons with stackable power-ups. The final part of the puzzle, the building of these giant, gentle creatures, is something you can play around with: Dejobaan have released an editor online to let you build and destroy your own Titan. The best will win a prize. I have video of how to do it below.

Jump For Joy: AAAaA Etc – For The Awesome

By Adam Smith on November 24th, 2011.

Good job I wrote out the tags before I ran out of letters, isn't it? Handy that.

I’m only allowed specific provisions to make my way through the days and writing even a brief missive about the follow-up to AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! – A Reckless Disregard for Gravity, AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome, threatens to use up every ‘a’ in the giant scrabble bag from which I construct my mendering prose. Mendering, eh? I guess tht mens I’m out. Still, it would be rude of me not to tell you tht the fntsy bse jumping gme is out, with 50% discounted from its price in the utumn Stem sle. But only for nother couple of hours. It includes remstered versions of the 82 levels in the originl !!!, long with 43 new ones tht see you leping from spce in n extrvgnt disply of ntiuthoritrin gusto.

AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! Demo

By Jim Rossignol on September 4th, 2009.


A proper demo this time, because the game is out. You can get both demo and full game from here. It’s a strange kind of thing: base-jumping through psychedelia for hi-score. You fall down a floating city, trying to take as much in the way of risks as possible by getting close to buildings, without dying. A bit like daily life for RPS’ writers, except we try to take as few risks as possible, without dying. This is an unusual game and you owe it to yourself to try it.

Triple-A game? It’s a 25-A game. (Do you see?) Trailer ‘neathwards.

AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAAlpha!!!

By John Walker on May 7th, 2009.

Do as it says.

You may remember we posted about AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! – A Reckless Disregard for Gravity back in January, excited by the idea of an extremely silly base jumping game. Well now you can play Dejobaan‘s it for yourself in the Ugly Alpha. It’s a limited version of the game, giving you a taste of what’s to come. You run, you jump, you fall, and ideally you land without breaking all your bones. There’s tons of dumb jokes in there, capturing the direction the game is obviously aiming for. Hopefully by the time the game gets closer to release it won’t force you to use arrow keys and P for menus, the cursor for others, but WASD and mouse for the game. Hint hint. Anyway, check it out – it’s good times. Videos below.

Cheaper: The Wonderful End Of The World

By Jim Rossignol on March 6th, 2009.


To fund the development of AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! Dejobaan Games are offering a sale price of $9.95 on their whimsically insane The Wonderful End Of The World. We previously blogged about the goofy madness of the Katamari-like here, and you should at least try out the demo (33mb).
