@selmiak - that's a big fat lie!  The moonshine is from Venezuela not Mexico.
@Mandle - glad you enjoyed it!

It was a pleasure to help make this game (or more accurately, to watch from a distance as LostTrainDude put blood, sweat and tears into the project, ably backed up by Kastchey's fantastic artwork, while I occasionally threw in some ideas and terrible singing!).  This whole thing partly came about because in a completely unrelated conversation with LTD, I recommended Red Dwarf to him (specifically the first 5 series, before the show went downhill fast).  He clearly has a similar sense of humour to me as he completely loved the show.  A lot of that love went into this game ;-D

Thanks everybody for the feedback! :D
It was great to work again with Kastchey and CaptainD and I'm really happy of how everything turned out! It was also interesting to play around with the isometric style, which I always had a soft spot for.

And yes, I was completely unaware of the amount of fun I was short of, before CaptainD told me about Red Dwarf! (laugh)

Another awesome collaboration guys! I loved the little surprise addition to the room and the ending is nothing short of genius ;)

I was about to start a new thread in the AGS Games in Production section, but I thought I could just use this since it's here already!

Fanbots goes 2.0!

What's new:
When will it be released:
Officially on August 1, 2016
BUT, if you are a Patron of CaptainD on Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/CaptainD) you can get early access right now!

Wait, what? Isn't the game free?
Yes it is, but CaptainD helped me a lot on this project and I really wish his Patreon campaign to get a nice kickstart so I figured this could be a nice way to draw some attention on him, his skills and his campaign!

Not to be Douchy McNitpick, but clicking "continue" before I start a new game gives me this illegible error message:

Still, can't deny this looks intriguing :) Will have to give this a go soon.

Ah man, I mean seriously, who clicks "continue" when they've not actually started a game yet?!?!? :P

Gah... can't believe we missed this. :-[ Should have got my 5 year-old to test it...

Argh!

Now that's embarassing! Thanks Amayirot Akago for pointing it out, I'll try to fix it pronto! :)

And... (hopefully) Fixed!

Thanks again Amayirot Akago for the feedback, now the Best Bot in the main screen points out if one tries to restore a game that has never been saved:

Still pure fun to play! The voice acting is amazing and i loved the now added business of the bigger bots. Exactly what I hoped. It's simply a AGS short game gem. <3 I guess I'll play it at least once a year just for the fun of it.

THANK YOU!

These are very nice words, Kumpel, and I can't thank you enough! :)
When we were working on the last bits of the game, CaptainD said the same thing about playing it at least once in a while and I would agree with him.

I guess I can say that we really have enjoyed working on the game :D

Thanks Kumpel!  Really happy you liked the voice acting, I think we were going to have other people involved but eventually to get it done Chris voiced 2 characters and I voiced all the rest, so I hope it didn't sound too much like the same guy!!

I play-tested it with my daughter and the moment we had finished playing it she shouted "AGAIN!" :grin:

It was a really fun project to work on.

Finally sat down and played this, had fun with it :D Charming sense of humor and fun characters.

Spoiler: ShowHide
I did have some trouble with the script puzzle since the top two chunks overlapped, so I didn't realize there were actually separate pieces to click on there for the first few tries.


Fun while it lasted, gotta watch me some Red Dwarf sometime.

You won't regret it...

Interesting thing about Red Dwarf is that it has never officially finished...

It is still an ongoing show that puts out a new series every decade or so...

Which makes a lot of sense, given the story...

Yep, series XI is right around the corner (September), so now's a perfect time to jump in.
