Write ‘Em Up: Elegy For A Dead World Released

'butts', 'buttlessness,' and 'butts came'.

“Wander around weird worlds looking at stuff then write about that” sounds like my job, but it’s also Elegy for a Dead World. Trapped on distant and dead alien worlds inspired by Romantic poets, our intrepid explorer wanders around, wondering what happened there and how they once were. Then we write little notes for other players to read, sharing our visions. Our John quite liked the build he played back when it was Kickstarting. Elegy launched today, costing about a tenner.

Hands On: Elegy For A Dead World

Elegy For A Dead World is undeniably quite a diversion for the developers Dejobaan Games, they behind AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! — A Reckless Disregard for Gravity and Drunken Robot Pornography. It’s an extremely sedate concept, that aims to turn anyone into a storyteller.

Impressions: Drunken Robot Pornography

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


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

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

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.
