We have to hand it to Demiurge Studios, they’re very up front about what their new game, Shoot Many Robots, is — and isn’t — about in its first trailer. Shoot Many Robots is Demiurge’s first wholly original and independently owned project. However, this studio is no newbie to the gaming industry, having aided studios such as Bioware, Epic Games, Gearbox Software and Harmonix in developing titles such as Mass Effect, Brothers in Arms, Borderlands and Rock Band, respectively.
“After nine years of working on truly awesome IPs with our favorite developers and publishers, we’re thrilled to be stepping out of the shadows with an original property of our own,” said Albert Reed, co-founder and studio director at Demiurge Studios. “Shoot Many Robots is the dream game we’ve always wanted to make: a 4-player co-op action-RPG with tons of loot and great innovation on beloved run-and-gun game play. Our team created a vibrant, unique style for the game that’s beautifully rendered by Demiurge’s new game engine. Building a ‘Robot Murder Simulator’ has been a blast for us, and we can’t wait to get it into gamers’ hands.”
Shoot Many Robots is slated for a 2011 release on digital platforms. Get your first look at Shoot Many Robots with the explosive first trailer and screenshots below (warning: you will learn nothing from this game!).
