Robot Roller-Derby Disco Dodgeball Is What It Says It Is

BOOSH!

If you're ever looking to make me follow arrows and signs endlessly as a cruel prank, spray-painting the words "Robot Roller-Derby Disco Dodgeball" on a wall would probably do it. Each part of the phrase intrigues and delights, and as a whole, well! I'd follow that circle of arrows for days. Well, I would if I didn't know Robot Roller-Derby Disco Dodgeball [official site] was a sporty multiplayer FPS.

After a lengthy Early Access period, yesterday it finally launched properly. I hear it's pretty great!

Let's break the name down to explain the game. Robot: it stars robots, and you play a robot. Roller-Derby: you're all zipping around on wheels, and it's pretty dang violent, but doesn't have cool ladies with cool tattoos so that's a bit of a let-down really. Disco: its levels are big colourful discos, obvs. Dodgeball: you all have one ball and fling it at people to knock them out. Makes sense, yeah? Then it's got fancy skill shots, deflections, power-ups, and cosmetic items to customise your bot. It does have singleplayer modes too, if you want 'em.

There's a demo on Steam so you can see for yourself.

Robot Roller-Derby Disco Dodgeball is £8.79 on Steam at launch, but will go up to £10.99 next Thursday. A four-pack will run you £23.99 right now too, if you want to form your own cool dodgeball team with some chums.

Reader dear, I've played only thirty seconds of RRDDD, in a pub, and cannot remember much other than "it was very colourful and I found the name quite exciting", so perhaps you've been having a go and could offer some thoughts with more insight than this terrible drunkard?
