​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.

hey, guys. thanks for the new level!

a few bugs i didn't mention before (linux build):
the new title screen allows you to die

when the pause menu is open, clicking still causes guns to fire, and, when chatting in co-op, keypresses still cause your McDROID to move.

entering text into the chatbox becomes impossible seemingly at random.

Our server is getting seriously hammered so we're switching to a bigger server and going global. We want to chose the fastest location so that everyone can enjoy.
So please take a minute to fill in this form.
Thanks

So a long time ago I was having a black screen issue when I launched this game in fullscreen, and I couldn't figure out how to get it back to windowed mode on Linux, but I found the solution. If you go to $HOME/.config/unity3d/Elefantopia LLC/McDROID and open up the prefs values there's to values related to full screen that you change from 1 to 0 and boom, you revert back to windowed mode. Now I can play!

Thanks for sharing Bibo ! Unity is on the case, it's due to non native resolution on some linux box. We're not waiting for them though, as of beta 8 there is a 20 seconds countdown.

Loving it so far! First purchase on Desura and couldn't be happier, I'm really looking forward to watching this game get better and better, really want to say good job to you Elefantopia. First game? Pshaw this is much too good to be a first game lol. Anyways keep up the good work! Would love to see more in-depth customization, like body part changes, different body types, more smiley faces. Also I like the upgrade system so far, but it would be nice to have a persistent upgrade system as well, like you get points for completing arenas and can spend those points for +1% speed upgrade, +1% firing speed, +1 damage and so on, nothing huge, but would allow you to get better and better, increasing the desire to go multiplayer. Also I seem to be having trouble communicating with those in my hosted game, I can see their chat, but they can't see mine. Again though, fantastic job, please please please keep going!

Thanks Geamova, I love that idea and I hate &#xil;e upgrades but now that McDROID has reached maturity I can see how this small grain upgrade can complete the big grain upgrade we already have - and the double power of the bliss turrets.
10x3 + at least 2 secrets * 1% = at least 32%... that's a lot of boostage, we'll try that and see how much it breaks.

By the way, I don't see the connection with MP, how does that increase the desire to go MP since we don't do PVP.

Just fyi, the "stack efffect" is already there- in the form of strawberries/turrets. You get to keep your strawberries and turrets from classic mode of any map to the challenge/nightmare.

I like your idea as well however if not limited this would make the game too easy very fast imhvo.
