Most people had zero interest in physics until Valve dropped Half-Life 2 up on the world back in 2004. And I have to admit that I was one of those people. However, HL2 changed all of that. Because it didn´t take me long before I realized that there was a game within the game to be found thanks to the physics in HL2 (the source engine worked all the magic). And shortly after the release of Half-Life 2, Garry Newman (Facepunch Studios) released the much beloved Garry´s Mod. Let´s just say that a whole generation of Gamers has grown up to love physics in games.
So I’m really proud to present Gordon Little´s “Magbot,” which would be an neat indie game that´s a mix of classic platforming with modern physics. And by the looks of it, “Magbot” made me think about Super Metroid meets Solar Jetman (but with robots instead). However, “Magbot” is something “else”, that´s for sure. There are also plenty of different game modes to be enjoyed as well (normal game, time attack, ironbot and marathon Ironbot). All of which offers the players tons of challenges and game variety.
So if you like the sound of that. Then you should most defiantly support “Magbot” on Kickstarter (the goal is to collect $2,000) and Steam Greenlight. And don´t forget that you can download and try the “Magbot” demo for free!
