Inhuman After All: ROBOT! ROBOT! ROBOT!

I'm currently working on a preview of IGF finalist World of Goo - short version: pre-order the thing, if only because you get a profanity pack(tm) with it - and find myself wandering 2D Boy's website. I discover that they've lobbed online a 7-day prototype of something they were playing around with, the pithily titled Robot And The Cities That Built Him. While they make masses of caveats - it isn't finished and was designed while listening to Bette Middler on a loop - its based around a neat little mechanic where you're managing the upkeep, upgrading and growth of your robot army while they go about crushing and destroying as is a robot's wont. It's certainly worth smashing your way through the first thirty cities, before the game runs out of content. Also, as always: ROBOT! ROBOT!
