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.
Birthday sale went better than expected so as promised we will add one new weapon so which one would you like to see in the final game ?

Which weapon do you want to see unlocked as achievement in McDROID:
1- Sentry Gun
2- Mutagel Vat
The sentry gun is a gattling gun on a tripod, a la Aliens but with infinite ammo so you don't worry about that rolling counter. Deploy once, anywhere on the map, it's repairable.
The mutagel vat is a factory that produces mutants. It implants a control rod in their nerve stem so they fight for you. Deploy once, Long range of action, walks in corruption happily but bioid cannot be repaired.
The Thumper is a thing that hammers the ground rhythmically causing sandworms to attack it, uh I mean mutants. Perfect decoy ... so don't get attached to it.
Here are the concept sketches.
The choice is yours !
