Insane Robots Is A Brand New, Unique Card Battler Coming To Consoles And PC
Playniac , an award-winning games studio, is bringing a brand-new sci-fi card battling experience to PC and all major consoles this July. Insane Robots was originally developed as a tabletop prototype using old business cards. From those humble beginnings, the game was completely transformed using inspiration from both physical and digital design processes. The game is a bright and entertaining take on the card battler, with some unique features that are certain to please many gamers.
If you've played many multiplayer card games, you know that it usually involves a fair amount of card collecting and the fact that you need to sink significant amounts of money into a "Free To Play" (read: "Free To Start") game to remain in any way competitive, especially as you move up through the levels can be incredibly frustrating. Publishers need to make money, and while that is completely understandable, this system can easily put off casual players who otherwise may have enjoyed the game. Insane Robots seeks to remove the roadblocks that many players encounter in multiplayer card games. Specifically, Playniac has eliminated "expensive card expansions, time-consuming customization, farming, and an ever-rising bar that excludes players who don’t purchase more cards". It's not a collectible card game at all, and the developers have provided every player with a streamlined battle deck. Insane Robots is truly a test of skill, strategy, and luck, with the same gameplay opportunities afforded to every player.
"Insane Robots finds players leading a robot rebellion through randomly generated survival arenas. Full of fiendish card battles, it’s FTL meets Battle Royale in a card game. Overthrow the malevolent robot despot, The Kernel. Save robotkind in an epic 15+ hour single-player campaign full of peril and twists, as a decaying robot dystopia is revealed."
Players utilize their battle deck to the best of their abilities in single-player, online, and local battles. "Hacks" and "Glitches" can be employed at just the right moment to get ahead in the game or defeat your enemy. You can even taunt your opponents with in-game communication.
