‘Robots In The Wild’ arrives on Steam Greenlight – Build a fortress, defeat monsters and save robot hearts, one block at a time

Heatbox Games’ quirky ROBOTS IN THE WILD has arrived on Steam Greenlight! Drop Blocks to build robots, and create a unique stronghold against vicious monsters. Can you last the entire night . . . until the Rescue Rocket arrives?

Robots in the wild 03Story & Gameplay

Not long ago, Robots lived in peace on a massive mothership . . . until one day they were hit by a gigantic asteroid — scattering their Blocks, and more importantly, their hearts across the galaxy. Since hearts are the most precious Robots of them all, it’s important that you keep them safe!

Build your robo-fortress by rotating and strategically placing falling Blocks using a Tetris-like ecosystem. Connect Blocks in different formations to build robots such as: PewPewBot, which shoots lasers out of its mouth; BlasterBot, which blasts boiling hot liquid out of its barrel; the DwellingBot, an essential Bot that produces four BatteryBots that deliver sweet power to your robots; and many more. There are even robots that build Blocks to build other robots! Make sure to keep everything connected through the Blocks power grid, because even the most energy efficient robots still need a clear path for a BatteryBot 🙂

In Robots In The Wild, alien monsters are incredibly dangerous and come in many different forms. There are monsters with many heads, monsters that explode on contact — even monsters that stand on each other’s heads! Some monsters are so massive that they can swallow your base up in one bite! Hurry up and get those defenses ready . . . because hungry alien monsters wait for no man, woman or Robot. While Earth’s creatures like to sleep when it’s dark outside, these monsters like to go bump in the night! You better build some LampBots; otherwise, you’re not going to see anything after the sun sets.

Key Features

  • Engage in unique Block-dropping gameplay.
  • Build endless combinations of Robots, creating your own custom fortress!
  • Experience a bold story about the meaning of life in a strange universe.
  • Explore an infinite number of randomly-generated planets.
  • Survive attacks by Monsters that fly, birth baby Monsters, or even stack on each other’s heads!

“It’s really just dropping different shaped Blocks from the sky. But it becomes so much more when you start building Robots to do specific things like seeing in the dark, attacking monsters . . . and having them make Blocks to help you build more robots.” – Aaron “Heatbox” Heaton (CEO, Heatbox Games)
