It’s with great joy that independent developer Sileni Studios announces the addition of single- player versus AI battles to Mayan Death Robots, joining the local “couch” PvP multiplayer already in the game. But everything has its price, and this time it’s the online play which will no longer be in the game at launch. Expectant fans shouldn’t be downhearted – now they’ll be able to hone their alien robot battle skills during those quiet moments alone before they kick their friends’ behinds into next week.
“We had to work out what we could do for launch with the resources we have, and online just wasn’t feasible right now, so we focused on the single-player game,” said Karel Crombecq, chief punching bag at Sileni Studios. “We’ll see later what we can do with online, but for now, work on the single player AI is going great and we can’t wait to get it into people’s hands at launch.”
Published by Soedesco and heading to PC this autumn and consoles at a later date, Mayan Death Robots serves up mayhem-fuelled mechanized warfare in player vs. player battles with echoes of classic titles like ‘Scorched Earth’. Arm your robot, choose your target, and blast the Mayan crud out of each other.
In general news, YouTuber Jesse Cox personally selected Mayan Death Robots for a public showcase with the Sileni team at his CoxCon 2015 event, taking place on August 1-2 at the Telford International Centre, UK. To find out more, visit http://www.coxcon.co.uk/.
At Gamescom 2015 in Germany the following week, Mayan Death Robots will be playable for press in the Belgian Pavilion, Hall 3.2 Stand D10. Duke it out with Sileni Studios in local multiplayer, but don’t worry – they’ll go easy on you….maybe.
More about Mayan Death Robots
Mayan Death Robots reinvents the artillery genre in a Mayan setting that’s been invaded by alien killing machines. Pick a robot from the roster and enter the arena to destroy your opponent’s power core. Aim your weapon before the timer runs out, but don’t be distracted by the pretty scenery: when the rockets start flying, you already need to plan your next move! Will you choose to move your robot to a better vantage point, or will you build defenses to keep your opponent from landing a killing blow?
Mayan Death Robots recently won the award for “Best in Show- Audience Choice” at Casual Connect Eastern Europe 2014 in Belgrade
About Sileni Studios
Sileni Studios was founded in 2012 by Karel Crombecq, who left his computer science research job at the university to pursue his childhood dream of making games. Knowing that he had the drawing skills of a toddler, he recruited Erwin Heylen, who takes care of the graphical side of things. Together, they aim to bring life to the crazy ideas that spring from their minds.
