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.
“McDROID is the perfect antidote for those gamers who yearn for something fast, furious, simple yet deep and challenging.” said Laurent Lavigne, Chief Droid Mechanic at Elefantopia, “The colourful cel-shaded love child of gaming classics - R-TYPE and Dune 2, take control of McDROID as he uncovers the conspiracy threatening Planet M”.
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. Progress through three difficulty levels – start in normal, carry your gold and arsenal into challenge mode and finally if you’re good enough get your butt kicked in the fiendishly difficult nightmare mode.
Choose your style of play: mount your tesla coil on McDROID and fight hands on or deploy factories and talking lasers on power nodes, you can even drop experimental machines anywhere to “pacify the locals”. In co-op mode join up to 4 players online to complete the story or play in survival arenas and unlock challenge and nightmare modes as you complete each level.
To build support for a MCDROID commercial release on Steam, the Elefantopia team has also launched the official MCDROID Steam Greenlight Campaign.
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.
