​McDROID is a surreal Action Tower Defense with
- mega frikkin' lasers that talk
- upgradable robots
- Gattling turret
- crop and monsters that mutate
- an economy based on giant strawberries.
- levels hand crafted like they used be.
- Cute cartoony Borderland graphics, but it's hella tough so you may have to co-op with your friends to take down that insane Mutatosaurus.​
​
Imagine the hectic big boss fights of RTYPE combined with the smarts and resource management of Dune 2. That's ​McDROID, our first game, made in homage of these awesome classics.
It's original, with gorgeous cell shaded graphics, boasts 100 enemies on screen at once, the most badass weapons (linking teslas, wave canons, bot factories...) and unusually challenging enemies.
It's a tough game, not for the faint of heart and it's got co-op multiplayer.

McDROID new GUI almost finished

The new GUI is almost finished, with its mechanical look that matches the rest of the game, it's fully animated madness and super polished FX.

Are you going to implement native touch controls in the desktop Windows version? I kind of don't want to buy the full game again on Windows Store just to have a touchscreen functionality.

Steam provides free Steam keys for early buyers through their greenlight program. So he could provide the keys free of charge for early buyers, but chooses not to, for Indie Royale bundle purchases, even though they were promised one before.

So basically he is only supporting some customers and not the others. Bad public relations in my opinion, and will ruin the reputation of the company by not standing by the promises made before.

I usually stay away from companies that don't stick with their promises, this means that they don't care about good service and their customers. It is actually hard to keep customers if you don't plan on keeping them happy.

I may as well wait until McDroid hits the $1 sales before I get it on steam, since I can just play the full game on Desura anyways. It defeats the logic that customers already have the full product and can play it, and not provide a key to play the full game, just on a different platform.

I keep my word:
Everyone who bought McDROID on Indie Royal gets a Steam Key!

Sorry for the "hell no" response, I realize now how uncaring it was, especially given your support, but those who followed this game know I am bad with words. Plus in this case I'm pushing close to 18 hours days, 7 days a week to meet the release date and to make it super good, so I'm juggling business and patching up stuff that breaks left and right, while improving the graphics, the sound and the balancing, and making new levels to refine the difficulty curve and teach all the mechanics of the game ... each day is intense like you would not believe. And because I'm reaching the end of my capacity and yet I want McDROID to be awesome, what ends up suffering are human rapports. So words get thrown rapidly, crappy days turn into quick responses and bam the interweb is on fire.

And to tell you the truth, I wasn't expecting this intense of a backlash because I didn't know you people cared about McDROID anymore so I am so so so super happy about what just happened because there is nothing worse than spending 2 years of your life and all your personal savings on a game and have people not give a crap.

So thank you everyone to show you care :-)

(now I wouldn't mind if this caring takes the form of kind words, I could use that as encouragement for the next few days :-) "

i.e. if you bought it before from: Desura, Indie Royale Bundle, Indie Game Stand, Humble Store you get a key.
