Twain Harte, California – September 13, 2012 – Further solidifying its mission of bringing indie games to light, Reverb Publishing announced today that it will be partnering with independent developer GolemLabs to help publish its upcoming strategy game, Exploding Robots . The innovative title is currently on Steam Greenlight: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=92918436

“We’re really proud of what we’ve been able to put together for Exploding Robots at this early stage in development, and bringing on experts in this space such as Reverb will only make the remainder of our journey that much easier,” said Jene-Rene Couture, president of GolemLabs. “They bring the same level of excitement to getting a game to market as we do in creating one, and that’s something we love to see.”

Exploding Robots is a fast-paced strategy game built around a different idea of managing gameplay, and around a different kind of artificial intelligence. Utilizing the latest generation of GolemLabs’ EHE system, your robots and enemy units will learn and adapt to your play style on the fly. There are no pre-programmed routes or behaviors in Exploding Robots . Units are given objectives, and will dynamically find new ways to meet them.

Game features include:

  • Multiple game modes including Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, and King of the Hill
  • Eight maps available at launch
  • Five unique robot classes - Bomber, Sentry, Engineer, Scout, and Spy
  • Groundbreaking EHE technology powered AI system, making for robots that adapt on the fly according to your style of gameplay
  • Improvements for your robots including experience, items, additional maps, cosmetics changes, with more updates on the way via constant support and expansions
  • Post launch tournaments, giveaways, and special items
Exploding Robots has been submitted to Valve’s Steam Greenlight project ( http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=92918436), which allows members of the Steam community to vote for games that they’d like to see available on the service.
