The concept of a Robot Apocalypse isn’t anything new. It’s been done for decades, and we know exactly how it usually goes. Scientist makes super-intelligent AI in the years preceding the singularity, and the AI creates a robot army to kill the not-robot army. Allow variations for aliens with robots and crazy humans who make a bunch of robots. The great thing about video games, however, is that it’s a powerful media for redefining a genre, and once you hear about this campaign, you’ll find that The Robot Apocalypse is still worth a look. (That’s the name of the game. The Robot Apocalypse.)
The Robot Apocalypse is a free-to-play massively multiplayer hybrid of real-time strategy and tower defense that will have you stranded in the midst of – you guessed it – an apocalypse of the robotic nature. A comic book art style lends The Robot Apocalypse a very polished look, and the level of customization available for each of your 6 mobile units is incredible. It works a bit like managing your inventory in Diablo. You have a certain grid of space to fill with differently-sized items, and it’s up to you to choose parts, arrange them, and make your tanks all they can be, because if they’re not… Well, robot apocalypse.
This free-to-play places fun above monetization, and allows you to join other players in a massive, persistent world full of robots and rival humans. Customizing your units looks easy to pick up, but deeply strategic, and… It’s a Facebook game? That’s right folks, The Robot Apocalypse is being developed to play right in your browser with Facebook.
