Posted by javehdez , 07 May 2013 · 1,040 views
We have a huge update for you guys with a ton of cool new features. This update addresses a lot of the game features and enhancements you guys have been asking for since we launched a little over four months ago.
First, we’ve completely overhauled the old physics system and replaced it with the much more robust Bullet physics. We have also added several new parts and operants that let you customize your bots and your world much better than before. We won't spoil the fun of discovering what they do, download the build and find out for yourself.
We listened to what you guys wanted and we now have a brand new Hex-build system, giving players the ability to build new terrain and structures from hexagonal building blocks, with more flat surface gravity.
Want to share robots with each other? Well now you can! with blueprints. Simply save a robot out to a file which gets saved into your blueprints folder, and you can share that file with anyone. To play with someone’s robot, just take their robot file and put it in your blueprints folder.
And last but not least, we present to you.... the latest version of Rawbots running on linux! We are still in our testing phase, but so far it is working quite well. So, if you know of friends that wanted to play an amazing game on linux, feel free to forward this email to them.
On a more serious note, we want to let all our loyal fans and supporters know that we truly appreciate every bit of support you have given us. What we’re trying to build is on such a massive scale that we couldn’t do it without the support of our fans. We know that some of you guys are quite influential and have a strong reach within the game community. Help us spread the word about our Kickstarter, to make this dream a reality for all of us that love creativity and intelligence in games.
Also a note to Steam players: We want to bring this game to steam ASAP, so help us get greenlit by voting for us (if you haven’t already done so): rawbots on greenlight.
