Dejobaan Games has announced development on Drunken Robot Pornography, a first-person shooter about demolishing titanic, flying robots, piece-by-piece. The award-winning studio has screenshots of the initial prototype at www.dejobaan.com/drunken.
In Drunken Robot Pornography (DRP):
You're a small, fleshy human with a jetpack and a gun, and your opponent is a robot centerfold that dwarfs a city block. The robot -- called a Titan -- tries to cut you apart with lasers and missiles powerful enough power to crumble the buildings you're standing on. [Pick off the Titan's cannons, fry away its carbon fiber armor, target a joint, and tear off a claw, leaving it writhing.] Your furious opponent spews raw plasma at you, so you [shoot up] a force field and duck behind it. Who will win? The crowd cheers your [intimate-yet-deadly] dance.
And if fighting giant robots isn't enough, you can fashion your own multistory Titans to unleash on other players. Start with a skeleton of titanium girders, then mount pulse cannons and shielding over hard points. Add actuators so your Titan can flex its arms or tentacles, and jets for locomotion. Pick your materials carefully -- an aluminum finish may be pretty, but graphene armor will better withstand attack. Finally, fuel it up with isopropanol for speed, methanol for strength, or ethanol, if you just want your Titan to end up really, really angry.
Having introduced a playable prototype to PAX East '12 convention-goers to good effect, Dejobaan Games projects a 2012 PC/Mac launch.
