I’ve been refreshing my memory of Upwards, Lonely Robot [official site] via the game’s free Steam demo. It tells the tale of a robotic ball who climbs towers while guzzling fruit and avoiding mechanical insect enemies.
Can robots feel lonely? Do we even have the technology yet? And even if we did, why would we want our robots to feel loneliness? Wouldn’t that be cruel? Will Upwards, Lonely Robot [official site] tackle these questions when it comes out on March 10th? I don’t know, actually, because there is not much information on this puzzle platformer aside from its cryptic trailer and the announcement that it does have a story of sorts.
