About Not the Robots
Developed by 2DArray and tinyBuild, Not the Robots is a rogue-like puzzle video game, available for the Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux operating systems. It is a game that has a robot as the main character. Evil and dangerous guards patrol many different office buildings. Sneak around the weird places, eating furniture while not getting caught. Furniture is the only thing that keeps the robot hidden, however, meaning that players must pick and choose carefully. Eating all the furniture on a level leaves the robot exposed to the dangers that are everywhere!
The robot's furniture eating is definitely weird, making this great game a fun journey for puzzle lovers. The story unravels as players chomp down on chairs and devour office dividers. There are many ways to solve puzzles, as long as the robot survives a variety of challenges. With randomly created levels, there's no way of knowing what the next floor has in store. Additionally, it has roguelike features with a variation of permadeath, as well.
Not the Robots Features
Not the Robots focuses on random, procedurally generated levels. This keeps things completely fresh every time users play. The robot must eat enough furniture to clear the level but really has no way of fighting off the machine-gun wielding guards. Their only job is looking for and killing intruders. Some levels might only have a security camera while others have lots of bad guys. Sneak around while sucking down furniture that gives experience points. While there is a form of permadeath, experience points carry from one game to the next. These add great depth to the game's play style, like opening double laser traps but also holes in the wall for the robot to sneak through. It's a unique way of spicing up the stealth play.
The game features a witty, funny story. Players find "downloads" through seven different office buildings. Things get goofier but explain the weird story behind a furniture sucking, sneaky robot. Furthermore, the developers 2DArray even stashed a secret sequel to one of their original games "You Find Yourself in a Room"!
Not the Robots is a stealth puzzle video game that embraces comedy. The main character is a furniture eating robot sneaking through corporate buildings. Play randomly generated levels over and over. Eat different pieces of furniture and earn experience points but don't let the guards see. Watch out for traps and hide behind the very furniture that needs eating. Balance the amount of furniture that's eaten with staying hidden from guards. The story is a weird, hilarious tale full of satire and silliness. Experience a semi-permanent death mechanic that takes players back to the beginning, but allows them to keep the experience points gained. All in all, Not the Robots offers a comedic take on stealth puzzle games with fresh and interesting mechanics!
