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.

First of all, thank you community, you have been awesome, and wow ! What reviews! Some of them are seriously heart warming.
I hope you'll like this new release, it's called 0.9.7 also known as "WOOOHOO co-op works !"
On Co-Op: Fraser worked his ass off and Tobias from Photon helped out to make it super smooth, it even works thought a crappy 3G connection although if you ping over 5000ms and rats are eating your copper line, it'll drop you for sanitary reasons :)
Yep co-op smooth, on a game this complicated to make - what a milestone for us - That alone is worthy of celebrating. But it is also Fraser's Birthday. You know what we do on birthdays ? We celebrate by cutting the price for 48 hours 75% off !
On Level 8: It's here and it's pretty, I mean pretty hard, but already 3 people high-scored me at nightmare so I'm about to challenge that.
The rail : someone already figured out how deeply it changes your strategy - you no longer need the power nodes, you can go solo, like an R-9A on legs mowing down baddies (they don't know they're bad, they just follow their instinct but that's for another discussion). Maxout your loadout, man.
We also changed the shader a little so the characters catch the light better, fixed some better explosions and sounds, changed the way the shop button work for clarity and a ton of other fixes.
So enjoy your dose of talking lasers and mutating strawberry fields and welcome to planet M.
