Christmas Present

Got friends that are thinking about joining The Robot Apocalypse? Doing so before 12 PM PST on 2015-12-23 would be a good idea..... They are planning Christmas gift to any players who are signed up by that time tomorrow (including existing players), so go send out some invites to your friends, tell them to get with it and come join us for some fun!

Here's a great chance to get some new players in and get them a nice little starting bonus to help them along the way! Get the word out and get us some new targets, I umm, mean cannon fodder, ummm, I mean alliance members!

You can see what data I've posted out there over the past few months here:

The Robot Apocalypse opened to a new set of testers

Yesterday they opened up to a new round of testers for The Robot Apocalypse.

While we are finding new bugs, it is still in beta testing and this was why it was opened up to more testers!

Recent Changes:

  • They've added base attacks into the mix now, both hitting other players bases and hitting robot bases.
  • There is a new feature in place that I had missed before also, which limits which squads can hit other squads.  I love the idea of this feature.  You can't take that level 40 squad and hit a level 10 base or other squad.  If I want to hit a level 10 base/squad I have to have a lower level squad out there to do it with.  I don't know the specifics on number of levels up/down that you can hit and there seems to be some "play" in being able to hit up/down in certain cases, but I love this concept.  
  • Sure there are others but those were the 2 main things I know that were tweaked of late.
One of the Devs has been online off and on, getting feedback, working with one of the programmers directly as issues arose, etc.

Good feedback from those I've chatted with and the fact that someone was there to listen to feedback and suggestions has been great.

The game is coming along nicely.  No idea when it will be fully released, but I'm glad to be in on the ground floor!

We've got a forum setup just for RA, feel free to drop in over there and ask questions or check out some of the posted pictures in the game.  You can find that here:  http://www.thedarkalliance.org/forum/forums/11-Robot-Apocalypse

Looking for Beta Testers

I'll be posting this here and on bp-information.

Awhile back both Nuke and I were approached by the authors of a new game, The Robot Apocalypse to possible get in on the early testing, give feedback and just plain testing it out and see what we thought.

This new FB game is similar to Battle Pirates in game style, so for those used to it you should be comfortable in the general flow of the game.  With that said though, there are some unique features in the game that set it apart also.

The authors have been very receptive to feedback and suggestions and, at this time, are looking for some beta testers to start adding into the mix in the coming weeks and months.

While I could put photos or videos on here about the game, I'll instead refer you over to their Facebook Page:


If you are interested in becoming a beta tester for them on it, providing them with feedback on bugs, balance, things you like or dislike, etc, email "info@carriedawaygames.com", subject line of  "Robot Apocalypse testing".

Expect us to post new content here in the coming weeks with links for the time being off of the bp-information blog.  We'll see long term if we keep both blogs up or roll it into a single one.
