Back in August we spotted Rawbots - a game in which you build your own robot from constituent parts, and then use it to fight other robots. That is a game right there. And now there's a playable alpha.
I've not got my hands on it yet, but the Technic Lego-esque complexity shown in the new footage looks pretty enticing. It's Spore, if Spore had been mechanical, and not shit.
There's some confusion over the price. But then this is a studio that have forgotten to mention their own name anywhere on the game's website. Blimey, guys. It seems it's Rozgo, according to their Desura page, where you can get access to the alpha, and all future stable builds of the game, for just £7. Or you can get it directly from the game's site, for, er, $30. The difference is the latter comes with:
Early access version @(rawbots.net)
- Immediate access to all builds.
- Access to Developers forum
- Access to all extra tools and builds free of charge.
Slightly confusing there. We'll hopefully be taking a look at the game soon.
