Indie micro studio Elefantopia
today released a playable demo for McDroid
, allowing you to try out this strategy game developed for Windows, Mac and Linux .Fusing arcade, strategy and endless replayability to a sixties acoustic rock soundtrack, McDROID mixes up out-of-this world robot combat and alien mutation into something very unique that can be played on your lonesome or in drop-in/drop-out co-op mode with friends.
In the game, you will control McDROID, a modular weapon droid whose areas of expertize are combat and farming. Whilst travelling through the deepest darkest fringes of unexplored space, MCDROID's shuttle collides with space debris and crash lands on the unchartered Planet M. Survival is paramount as McDROID defends the crashed shuttle and his only means of escape. Through story levels, survival arenas and secret caves, McDROID must defend his shuttle against hordes of crazed alien species as they mutate, corrupt the ground and turn his farmed strawberries into lethal bomb trees.
Planned to launch commercially in spring 2013, McDROID is now in a paid beta phase and available on Desura for $14.99 USD / £9.99 GBP / €12.99 EUR / $15.99 AUD. A trailer and seven screenshots
have been added in our download section.
