Spent a good portion of my evening tonight in the Microsoft offices in Times Square, NYC. I was Working with Zack of Royal N Games (go follow their Facebook and Twitter) to Promote the game we’ve been working on, Deathbot Derby. keep an eye out for the hashtag #TestYourMetal

Long ago, disgruntled fans mourned the cancelation of their favorite robot fighting T.V. show, and took to the underground. Void of caution or regard for public safety, contenders began to build incredible machines of destruction and pit them against each other in one on one death matches. And so was born…
The DeathBot Derby!

In DeathBot Derby players build their bots using a quick card drafting mechanism and then face off in an ever changing arena. They will have to strategically move and attack their opponent to gain the tactical advantage. The winning DeathBot goes home a champion, and the loser goes back to the scrap heap they came from.

Deathbot Derby is in the last of it’s Beta stage as we are ironing out the final details, and will be running a kickstarter to fund the game in October of 2016. All in all tonight’s event was to share what we’ve been making with some gamers, and we were fortunate enough to have a lot of people swing by the booth to check it out, play, and have good times. The event had over 700 people in attendance, and so many various games ranging from board and card games, to mobile apps, and full on console and computer games, all from independent companies. The variety of options to play was incredible, but more so was the top quality of a lot of the games there. On top of that, almost every single person I saw there seemed to be happy and having a great time (gamers and the game creators), so definitely a successful evening. We may be doing another event with the Playcrafting group in October. (Be sure to follow Royal N Games on their social media pages for announcements regarding that)
