Robo Crazy: Plain Sight 1.2 Patch & $2 Sale!

Kieron and I got a bit worked up over indie robot-battler Plain Sight, and I've put a few of our choice quotes (as well as a video of the game) after the jump. What you need to know is that not only has the recent 1.2 patch added both persistent perks and hats (their words: "It worked for TF2, right?"), Plain Sight has just begun…

Plain Sight’s Unplain Site
