About this project

Welcome interplanetary traveler, and thank you for checking out our project. We’re pretty sure you will enjoy our game enough to support us. We could talk about Robonauts forever because we really love this project, but instead we will summarize it in a few words to try and get you as excited as we are! Robonauts is a game built from our own experiences and emotions. It reflects who we are and why we got into this business in the first place. 

We dug deep into our childhood to come up with this labor of love. I mean, who doesn’t want to have a real arcade game right in their own home, and stay up into the wee hours jumping between planets trying to destroy an evil corporation bent on taking over the known universe? 

In a nutshell, Robonauts is that arcade game. The game, on which we have been working over the last year, includes 12 levels. Each level will challenge you. You will explore the "First World" consisting of 50 planets, facing Bosses and creatures and meeting powerful opponents bent on universal destruction. 

Right now, you have the opportunity to download a demo version from www.qubicgames.com/robonauts or follow us on Facebook www.facebook.com/robonauts.game and Twitter @Robonauts_Game, where we will keep you up-to-date about the progress of our production.

 

 

        

Robo is a little robot whose curiosity got the better of him and led to his sudden exit from the confines of his safe environment. Now little Robo is far from home, fighting for his life against a constant barrage of enemies.

We have created a few fearsome opponents for you to face. At first, defeating them may seem easy. For offense against the horde, you will have a rifle and grenades. For defense you will have your armor and nimble reflexes.

 

When developing Robonauts, we chose to give Robo human traits based on our own emotional experience. Robo acts like you and I, and we sense his emotions when has to choose between sides in a battle, trying to figure out who the good guys are. Once you get to know him, it’s hard not to love Robo. ;)

 

The "First World" of Robonauts includes 50 different planets, between which you can jump. But while the game is very dynamic, you get to choose your tempo of gameplay. Unexpected obstacles await you on every planet, and each obstacle has to be overcome to move forward. We have tried to fill Robo’s universe with enough graphically various worlds that everyone who plays can find a unique favorite to which they can return. The graphics in this game are truly spellbinding. And the color scheme makes the game enjoyable for both kids and the kid inside every adult who remembers what it was like to spend a day in the arcade.

 

 

 

 

Gameplay is one of the most important elements of our game, and it’s an element on which we’ve spent a lot of time and attention. We really wanted to recreate the experience of the best arcade games from our childhood, so to pass a level, you have to jump between mesmerizing planets and destroy every opponent that stands in your way. Really, there are no words to adequately describe the Robonaut universe. That’s why we have a video, so you can judge for yourself.

We know how important a soundtrack can be to a game. We put a lot of thought into just what kind of soundtrack would be needed to express the character of the game while seamlessly melding into the gameplay itself. A few members of our crew are big fans of the acclaimed musician and video game soundtrack composer, Simon Viklund. We reached out to Simon and you can’t imagine how happy we were when he agreed to collaborate with us. 

His music exemplifies the very essence of Robonauts – dynamic, retro, arcade-style, energizing. What Simon has created is not only music for our game, but also the perfect soundtrack to your life - if you're just like us, that is. Remember that by donating to our project you will get the whole Soundtrack as well!

 

 

 

 

The Robonauts team is made up of some of the very best in our field. And, like Robo, they know a thing or two about escaping from evil corporations. We think we have brought together an amazing crew that will defeat every enemy in the universe! No really. We could go on, but we don’t want to overwhelm you, so we have prepared a graphic showing you the people who are working on Robonauts. But that’s not all. Follow us on social media channels where you will find short videos featuring all of our team members, including our Boss who watches over the project ;)

Risks and challenges

Robonauts is and artistic endeavor and labor of love which we have worked on for the better part of a year. This project is the fulfillment of our dreams and we are striving to make our creation the best it can be.

To complete this work of art, the team is using the experience they gained through such productions as The Witcher 2, Anomaly 2, Anomaly: Warzone Earth, Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride, Toymaker, as well as one of the most difficult runners: Geki Yaba Runner. We are convinced that the end result of our efforts will be an experience our donors will truly enjoy sharing with us.

But we recognize that there is risk involved in such an ambitious endeavor and that we owe it to you, our supporters, to try and reduce this risk as much as possible. This is why we are releasing a demo version, available for download on our website, so you have the opportunity to see the potential and judge for yourself if you’d like to pledge toward the completion of our masterpiece.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us to make our, and perhaps, your dreams come true.
