Dejobaan Games, the Massachusetts-based developers behind, AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! – A Reckless Disregard for Gravity, are now making Drunken Robot Pornography.
They're also making a game called Drunken Robot Pornography. The game will be a first-person shooter where you play as a human with a jetpack and a gun tasked with obliterating a colossal robot centerfold called a Titan. As the Titan demolishes the buildings you're standing on, you can disassemble it piece by piece by removing its armor, cannons, and claws. You'll also have the ability to erect force fields as makeshift shields.
Beyond simply fighting Titans, you'll be able to construct your own and unleash them on other players. "Start with a skeleton of titanium girders, then mount pulse cannons and shielding over hard points. Add actuators so your Titan can flex its arms or tentacles, and jets for locomotion," the press release explains. "Pick your materials carefully — an aluminum finish may be pretty, but graphene armor will better withstand attack. Finally, fuel it up with isopropanol for speed, methanol for strength, or ethanol, if you just want your Titan to end up really, really angry."
Conceptually, it sounds a bit like a zany Shadow of the Colossus with a stronger action vibe and no exploration. Or maybe it's more like the giant robot bosses in Binary Domain crossed with the jetpacking daring-do and general goofiness of Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon. These are all things I love, so this sounds all sorts of amazing.
Drunken Robot Pornography is due later this year on PC and Mac. In the meantime, check out some screenshots at the official site.
